Always good running into tough junior welterweight contender Karim “Hard Hitta” Mayfield.

The tough junior welterweight contender is looking for a big 2015 and seemed pleased with his latest swing through Las Vegas.

“It’s been some good work,” stated Mayfield, a Bay Area native. “Been able to go to a few different gyms.”

Mayfield was also fortunate enough to get some rounds with the legendary Roy Jones Jr. inside of his new facility.

“It was a good look,” Mayfield stated of his work with Jones. “It’s a nice gym. They got two rings and  an MMA cage. And you got one of the greatest of all times in there. You can’t beat that.”

Mayfield (19-2-1, 11 KO’s) described his time in the ring with the four-division champion.

“It was a some great work,” Mayfield revealed. “He’s the greatest of all time. How could it not be great? We just moved around. He’s a lot bigger than me but we surely wasn’t pitty-patting. But I learned a lot in one session, literally. Giving me certain advice, things I can fix.”
