These days, the action inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club has slowed up noticeably in the wake of Vegas’ latest double header.

The Adrien Broner vs. Shawn Porter bout took place on Saturday, June 20 and the next day Rances Barthelemy defeated Antonio DeMarco in the main event of a Sunday afternoon card. Both shows took place from the MGM Grand.

It was definitely a packed scene on Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club.

The facility typically fills up during most media days and with Floyd Mayweather making an appearance to help drum up what is already a big fight with this weekend’s Adrien Broner (30-1, 22 KO’s) vs. Shawn Porter (25-1-1, 16 KO’s) melee, there was quite a lot to take in.

Floyd Mayweather kicked off his training camp in Las Vegas on Monday, ahead of his May 2 pay per view showdown against Manny Pacquiao. It was a mobbed scene at the Mayweather Boxing Club, as is most cases when Floyd kicks off camp, and surely this particular camp will be full of surprises.

A quick stop by the Mayweather Boxing Club this past week saw junior middleweight prospect Thomas Hill and welterweight upstart Charvis Holifield putting in some work ahead of their scheduled matches next month.

Holifield (1-1) is coming off of a 4th round disqualification loss to David Thomas this past November. In a fight he looked to be winning. Holifield’s mouthpiece came out one too many times shortly after he dropped Thomas in the 4th.

During a recent conversation with former light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal, the confident Haitian-born Canadian star dissed his countryman Adonis Stevenson.

Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KO’s) will look to bounce back into the championship ranks on March 14 when he tangles with the division’s IBF/WBA/WBO champion Sergey Kovalev on HBO in Quebec.

Will the boxing world ever see Floyd Mayweather face Manny Pacquiao?

That is definitely the question you hear these days.

As seen earlier today, Floyd Mayweather has taken to his personal Instagram page to dismiss reports that a May 2 clash with Manny Pacquiao is set for Las Vegas.

The buzz on boxing’s dream match continues to build but after so many years of anticipation, not everyone is sold that Mayweather vs. Pacquiao will happen this year.

When Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao came face to face in Miami last night during the Bucks-Heat game, the world was set ablaze with curiosity, chatter, and hope.

For the past five years, the two prize fighters have intrigued the boxing world and the general public with the possibility of a dream fight taking place, but seeing Mayweather and Pacquiao speaking to one another was definitely a positive sign to many.

The reports vary every day and there is no real certainty that we will  be seeing Floyd Mayweather face off with Manny Pacquiao in 2015 or at all.

The latest buzz has Mayweather possibly meeting up with Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto on May 2 in a rematch of their intense 2012 encounter that Floyd won via unanimous decision.

The more times passes, the more it seems like we may be seeing Floyd Mayweather face off with Miguel Cotto in a rematch on May 2 instead of a huge showdown with Manny Pacquiao that the boxing world and general public has been hoping for.

Cotto gave Mayweather a spirited battle in May of 2012, dropping a clear yet competitive decision over the course of 12 rounds inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Amir Khan’s stock is as high as ever following his dominant unanimous decision victory over Devon Alexander this past weekend in Las Vegas.

Khan was razor sharp, picking Alexander apart with precise shots inside of the MGM Grand, nabbing his 30th victory as a professional while also paving the way for a possible dream fight vs. Floyd Mayweather in 2015.

While he will never be confused for a diehard Manny Pacquiao fan,  veteran trainer and former two-division world champion Roger Mayweather has seemed to gain a little bit of respect for the Filipino icon in recent times.

Pacquiao is fresh off of a 12-round blitzing of gritty but outmatched Chris Algieri in Macau, China this past weekend and Roger feels that the eight-division champion from General Santos City is ready for a crack at the man regarded as the best fighter in the world, his nephew Floyd.

MEMPHIS... WAR

By Chris Robinson

It’s been nearly three years now since we linked up with young and bullish LaDarius Miller inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club.

Having then traveled on bus from his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, it was easy to spot that Miller had some good ol’ fashioned Southern attitude in him, but it was coupled with a modest and determined approach that led you to believe he would be someone to keep an eye on.
