Mayweather's hands are a big reason he only fights in Vegas. Mayweather injects pain killers into his hands before fights because of how brittle they are. He uses drugs like Xylocaine that are illegal in almost every other state except Nevada.

I would say that the drugs that are legal in Nevada are really the only reason he fights all of his fights in Vegas. Taxes help, but if that were the case then no big fight would ever be made outside of Vegas.


The only reason huh? So never mind that Nevada is similar to Florida with taxes. And we all know he loves money....I can think of a few other reasons to counter tour clairvoyant senses as to him "only" fighting in Vegas because of his hands

I've heard rumors about his alleged use of that Xylocaine but I've never heard it to be true. Do you have some factual evidence of this? An article or maybe something where Mayweather admits this nor brings up Xylocaine?

Why else would EVERY big fight be in Vegas? Even Oscar fought a few of his big fights out of Vegas. I can understand why the vast majority would be in Vegas, but it seems like all of Floyd's fights recently have been in Vegas.

Mayweather uses Xlocaine. Saying he doesn't is just silly. Everyone knows it. It isn't much of a secret. It isn't a big deal, either. It is legal so there should be no questioning the drug as long as it is used in Nevada.

Where'd u get that from?


I just knew it. I thought it was knowledge by everyone? I was surprised to see that NOBODY brought it up. Maybe I am the only person that knew this fact?

It is not common knowledge. It is common speculation like pacs use of steroids or saying marg used plaster against cotto. No way to prove or disprove it

I have no issues with FMJ fighting in Vegas. If teams could play all their games at home they would. And the xlocaine thing, I'm like Chi, I have never read an article saying he has. Why fight away from the place that has given you so much good luck. Now I would love to see him fight at the Garden

The first time I heard about any of it was when Nazim brought it up



He says "they gave me the name", which am guessing means Team Mayweather gave him the name, which in a way admits that it happens.

There's a very old interview with Floyd saying he did use that drug but he stopped long ago because it makes your hands numb and there's no way to know if your hand is broken during the fight, thus aggravating any injury

I also thought it was common knowledge, derp. But to my understanding, it's been ages since he used it.

And Floyd has hurt his hands in plenty of fights, as recent as the guerrero fight.
