It was quite the scene on Tuesday afternoon in Las Vegas amidst Floyd Mayweather’s media day ahead of his May 2 dream match vs. Manny Pacquiao.

Simply taking in everything outside of the Mayweather Boxing Club was a sight to see, from all the familiar media members to the throng of fans who gathered to take in a piece of history.

Check the video below for Floyd’s arrival late afternoon that we at Hustle Boss put together.

Floyd fielded questions from reporters. Always busy Elie Seckbach┬áis one of the busiest media cats in the game and captured a portion of Floyd’s post-arrival interview.

As for Watson, check out what he had to tell me about the May 2 fight, including how many celebrities are hounding him for ticket requests.

Always good to see Zab Judah in the mix. Radio Rahim talked to the two-division champion about his experience in Mayweather’s training camp. Click HERE for the one on one.

Jose Martino of BoxeoMundial.com captured Senior’s prediction of an early and successful night for his son against their Filipino rival.

I also loved rapping with my boy Big Church. He’s always in good spirits and is talking a big game with just a little over two weeks before the fight.

I was only at the Media Day a little over an hour but it was good to see familiar faces such as Luis Sandoval, James ‘Smitty’ Smith, and, BoxingScene.com‘s Rick Reeno, FightHub’s Marco Villegas, and others.
