What an outstanding week in Las Vegas. Not just the privilege of the second week of being on Floyd Mayweather’s sparring team, but Floyd treated me to a brand new $50,000 Chrystal 300 car. I’m extremely grateful and honoured to be part of his TMT.
The top entertainment station, TMZ, top boxing reporter, Elie Seckbach, and number one boxing website, FightHype.com, interviewed me this week.
Floyd hired out the Circus Circus Adventure dome for the team’s family and friends. He should be headline news for all he does, but somehow his more generous side and his always ‘giving back’ activities never makes the headlines. Good news rarely travels far.
Earlier that night a bunch of us went out for dinner to celebrate Ishe’s 37th Birthday.
I’ve been hugely focused – training hard and getting into tip top shape. I’m waiting on confirmation of my opponent. Mayweather Promotions are still negotiating with a former world champion and top contender. I’m patiently looking forward to the announcement.
Every day I’m at Sub Zero Recovery for some cryotherapy to help my body to recover.
Nate Jones and I have been really putting on some performances during our pad sessions – you should have been there – nothing but blistering hand speed and excruciating power.
On Saturday evening, I attended two boxing shows; one at the Palms Casino Resort and the other at the Mandalay Bay. I bumped into my childhood friend from the amateur’s, former cruiserweight and heavyweight world champion, David Haye. He’s talking about fighting at the end of this year. I like many, will look forward to that.
I ended my week at Wet ‘n’ Wild water park with Ishe and his family. This is part of the necessary relaxation for my body, as we get ready for another hard week ahead of us.
This week has been filled with great media exposure in America. I’ve had a productive and positive week with some great people. Not everything is plan sailing but by now, I know that I just have to roll with it.
Here’s to another great week in Vegas.
Don’t live in the past. You might miss the great things happening in your present.
