"Floyd's thoroughly dominating all of his sparring guys. He's working...I think he's working harder this fight than for any fight that I've ever seen; maybe it's because of the layoff. I don't know. I've never seen him work...even though he's one of the hardest workers to ever put on a pair of gloves, this time around, he's going nonstop," stated world-class trainer Jeff Mayweather, who gave us an update on his nephew, Floyd Mayweather, has been looking during training camp as he prepares to make his return to the ring on September 17 when he faces WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz.
"Yeah, I have had a chance to watch him," Jeff explained. Although he's not a part of the camp, Jeff takes time to stop by the gym from time to time when he's not working with his own fighters, like former super bantamweight champion Celestino Caballero, who he's currently training for an upcoming rematch with Jonathan Victor Barros on October 14. By all accounts, Mayweather is training harder for this fight than ever before, and the results have been evident against the likes of Sechew Powell and Deandre Latimore, who are two of several fighters that he's sparring with.
"He's constantly working; sometimes 3 hours straight nonstop. I have never witnessed nothing like this, and even with my nephew as good as he is and me being a part of his life and being able to see that. But this...what I'm seeing now is even beyond normal for him to me," Jeff added, which is statement in and of itself considering that he's witnessed Floyd train for fights that many would consider to be bigger than this. It's a testament to just how serious Floyd Mayweather still takes his craft.
On September 17, we'll see firsthand the results of his training and whether or not it will have an impact on the extremely confident Victor Ortiz.
