It’s Always Worth It
What an absolutely amazing week this has been; from the fighters arrivals on Tuesday at the MGM casino hotel to Wednesday, and the fan workout and autograph signing. Without stopping to catch our breath, straight to Thursday, and the undercard press conference. And then Friday, the weigh in and straight down to business on Saturday – Show Time. On Sunday we finished up at Floyd’s mum’s house to celebrate with him and the rest of the team.
This might be the last time I ever get to witness a boxing week this unique and of this magnitude. To be a part of it is something very special.
I sparred hard with Floyd in the lead up to his fight with Andre Berto, former IBF world champion, Ishe Smith, commented that I did better than Berto did against Floyd. I feel hugely privileged to have fought on this historic card. A small but important footnote, I brought about the only British victory on the bill, as George Groves failed in his bid to beat my friend, Badou Jack. Badou proved he belongs with the big boys – Chavez and Bute look like being the two fights that most interest my friend now.
I won for the 39th time during a 12 year career. My 6th straight with Mayweather Promotions. I’m feeling pleased and proud, after all the hard work, the continuous sacrifice not to mention the hard yards. It’s a beautiful feeling to see all the hard work pay off. I’m so hungry and ready for the big fights now. Floyd shared with me a week ago he’d like me to fight Adrien Broner. I’d really relish and love that fight.
Let’s make it happen.
Floyd won his 49th victory on the trot, with the now accustomed masterful display. The very best are always criticised, and Floyd is no different. He beats all comers – making it look easy, but if it was really was so easy a lot of fighters would have achieved such a milestone.
He’s made a breath taking $700 million during his career. $300 million made in his last fight alone against Manny. He’s been the highest paid athlete over each one of the last three years. He stands unique and alone. He has the highest grossing boxing event ever to his name. He brings millions of dollars to Las Vegas. Many still are blind to his giving to homeless people and helping the kids. His foundation is making a positive difference.
He’s about to shortly embark on his European tour soon – don’t be surprised if you see me by his side.
Mission Accomplished! The boss got his 49th win and I got my 39th win.
Destiny Awaits! Stay tuned…
