Ahead of his May 2 showdown with Manny Pacquiao in LasVegas, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is giving 100 percent during training.
That’s bad news for the people he’s working out with.
According to photographer Chris Robinson, via Lyle Fitzsimmons ofCBSSports.com, Money knocked out a sparring partner during a recent training session. For some perspective, per Fitzsimmons, Robinson’s website, HustleBoss.com, “posts images and stories from Mayweather headquarters.”
It was a case of “Floyd doing his thing,” Robinson said. “He dropped one of the guys with a body shot.”
In other words, Money is showing no mercy.
Mayweather has 26 knockouts in his 47 victories. However, it has been a while since the 38-year-old has won via knockout. Money has not recorded a KO since his 2011 bout against Victor Ortiz.
Still, Money will enter the fight with a perfect record, and he’d like to exit the same way. That means he will be completely focused until the bout.
For those who are helping him train: Watch out.
