CORNELIUS BOZA EDWARDS
Cornelius Boza Edwards is being inducted into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame this summer, on Friday, The Money Team attended the inductee party which announces the boxing legends that are about to be inducted.
Floyd Mayweather, Roy Jones Junior, Evander Holyfield, Mike McCallum, Kevin Kelly, Shane Mosley and Zab Judah where just some of the world championship fighters to attend the event.
Boza thoroughly enjoyed the night. Floyd took to the stage and spoke to everyone in attendance about how much he values and respects Boza. That was a nice touch. A former world and European champion; Boza fought over 20 times in London, making his debut there. We have even fought at the same venues. He is appreciated more in America than in the UK. A special man!
Over the weekend I completed two photo-shoots at the Mayweather Boxing Club. One was for Mayweather Promotions and the other was for a photographer who had flown in from Los Angeles. I’m looking forward to seeing the end product.
The weather is getting closer to 100 degrees. The sparring is intensifying. The body is getting close to peak form. The mind is focused on the task at hand.
The weeks are flying by. Fight week will be here in no time.
I’ve fought some of the best fighters of my generation; two time world title challengers Delvin Rodriguez and Pablo Cesar Cano, world champion, Danny Garcia, and former world champion, DeMarcus Corley. I’ve been IBO International and British champion. I’ve beaten British, Commonwealth and African champions. I love the big fights. The big occasions.
May 3rd at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is another big occasion. The Superbowl of boxing.
R’n’B star Lloyd, Hollywood director John Singleton and Hip hop legend Doug E. Fresh, all popped into the Mayweather Boxing Club to watch Floyd workout this week. Doug even commented it was “like going to watch a superman movie”. NFL and NBA players often come into the gym and they are always mesmerized by the work Floyd puts in. I love it! I get to watch ‘greatness’ day in, day out. The best of boxing is my boss.
Working with Floyd and Leonard is a pleasure and something I am grateful for. From the first day I walked into the gym, they made me feel at home.
I represent Mayweather Promotions, but I also represent the United Kingdom across the world. DAMN! Life is good.
