Aye, Ben... Have you guys thought about interviewin' this guy lately? I asked this question, 'cause Chris Robinson (Hustle Boss) has footage of the guy trainin' out of Mayweather's gym in Vegas with his dad. Since Sr. is trainin' him, I'd like to hear how the progress is comin' along.

Dude got the right genes/pedigree and if he takes to his training as well as Jr did then we'll see the dawning of a new era.

This is the same thing I was thinkin', but there's only 1 thing that worries me...his lifestyle (i.e.think Broner). I don't think he as dedicated as he should be. Goin' by the interviews and videos on his Youtube page, I've come to the conclusion that music is his 1st love. That's where his passion is. Personally, I believe boxin' is more like a hobby to him, even though he's a professional.

We wont see another Floyd for a while...even IF his last name is Mayweather. All of the past greats had children who tried to follow in their footsteps...didn't work out so well. Thing is, those past ATGs struggled in life, and boxing was their only way to fight through it. I doubt if a little brother, or half brother has what it takes to make history...

I agree, but I still want to see if the kid has potential. Maybe Floyd Jr. will throw Justin in the dog house if he's at the gym durin' Floyd's next trainin' camp.

The sad thing is, this dude is gonna have a shitload of pressure on him. Looks like he's already had one pro fight, but as soon as anyone finds out that he has any relation to the Mayweathers...those silly expectations from fans are gonna surface. He's probably already been in the dog house though, lol.

He probably has, but I bet the atmosphere wasn't anything like how it'd be durin' 1 of Floyd's trainin' camps (i.e. packed gym, cameras, shit-talkin', beatin' on the ring, etc...), kinda like how the atmosphere was when Broner got thrown into the dog house.

From watching the clips of him on YouTube, his development level is below par at this stage. I'm assuming he was a late bloome. I would bet money that his career will not be half as successful as Floyd, Roger or Floyd Sr. He may be a Mayweather, but he fights like a Jones

he gets KOed. roger got koed, floyd sr got koed. just cause hes a mayweather dont mean anything. if it wasnt for floyd jr we wouldnt even know the mayweather name. dont buy into the hype. look what happen to mickey bey and j love. i think he gets his ass kicked. pedigree dont mean shit in reality. look at cory spinks. won the 147 titles when there were bums in the division, then he went up in competition and got waxed. look at marvis frazier, got waxed by holmes and tyson. good luck to him though.

Roger Mayweather is a name in boxing and was a good champion before Floyd was even on the scene...

Mikey never wanted to box, he wanted to be a police officer, which he is. Boxing chose him. If Justin's heart isbin music but is a talented boxer well, you get my drift.

What?

I'd like to see his progress and hopefully he blossoms into a very good fighter. He's getting the proper teaching from Floyd Sr. I remember no one believing that Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia would be champs and do what they're doing. You never know how a fighter's career and development will turn out, so I'm not going to count him out

He didn't even know Sr was his pops until like 19 so I don't think the pedigree will mean much. Floyd is as good as he is because he had all 3 Mayweathers from a very young age. He also had a very impressive amateur career and sparred against a lot of good fighters as a youngster. None of which this young man has really been privy to.
