Undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather showed off his fighting form in an open media workout in his Mayweather Boxing Gym in Las Vegas, in preparation for his May 5, 2012, a 12 round world title mega-fight against WBA Super welterweight champion Miguel Cotto. As Floyd Mayweather Jr. made his first few strides into the main gym reporters and camera crews absolutely enveloped him and his entourage. In front of the assembled media, the undefeated boxer did some work on the mitts and showcased his impressive footwork, powerful punches and head movement. Every camera in the room flocked to Floyd’s side within seconds.
His soldiers stood in position at the ready to help him transition from one stage of training to the next. It was a showcase of a lifetime of perfecting his craft, guided by family and friends like 50 cent. Mayweather’s Vegas swagger combined with his ability to keep coming back to the boxing well and tapping his God given talent are something special.
Aside from a few moments of moving and grooving to the music, Mayweather took the session very seriously and seemed to run his own workout with his team’s collective support rather than under their constant direction. Mayweather’s interaction with the press was also fairly limited during his actual training time, though he stopped in mid-workout to make sure his staff sent out Twitter updates about the session streaming live on UStream for all his fans.
