"I thought I was going to be kind of upset because I didn't get a chance to take a vacation, but actually, you know, this camp went great," stated undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd "Money" Mayweather, who talked about his decision to fight for the second time this year, just 4 months after his previous fight. It's something Mayweather hasn't done since 2007, when he faced both Oscar De La Hoya and Ricky Hatton over the span of 7 months.
"I was able to get right back into the groove, get right back in there, and actually, you know, it was a good turnaround because I'm still sharp," Mayweather explained during a recent conference call as he discussed how the quick turnaround has affected him physically. In fact, provided all goes well when he faces Canelo Alvarez on September 14, it looks like fans can expect to see Mayweather fighting twice again next year as well. "This camp has been tremendous. I've been getting good, solid work and the young guys have been pushing me. After this fight, I look to fight in May and then fighting in September again," he added.
