About Floyd Mayweather’s Career
May 2, 2015 – A date which will become one of the most historic
and memorable event in the history of the boxing world as Floyd “Money” Mayweather will be facing Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao for the Unified WBA (Super), WBC, WBO, and The Ring welterweight titles. After many failed negotiations, Floyd Mayweather finally proposed a May 2, 2015 bout to Manny Pacquiao last December 12, 2014, to which he agreed on the terms on January 13, 2015.
Floyd Mayweather’s record is a perfect one: with 47 wins, 26 of which are knockouts and no loss. He started his amateur career with a record of 84-6. During the 1996 Olympics which was held at Atlanta, he won the bronze medal. He fought his first professional career bout on October 11, 1996. His notable opponents include Diego Corrales, Arturo Gatti, Zab Judah, Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Juan Manuel Marquez, Shane Mosley, and Miguel Cotto among others.
Floyd’s usual diet when training includes fried hotdogs, ramen, broccoli. During his training time for the Mayweather-Pacquiao bout, he was reported to have paid a $1000 worth of meal per day provided by a Las Vegas-based Chef Q. Floyd’s motivation is that “Every day that I go to the boxing gym, I think about what my opponent is doing. In my mind, I’m trying to outwork my opponent. That’s what keeps me physically able to go out there and perform and not get tired. Each time I’m pushing myself more and more to the limit.”
