The past few days, inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather has been in the building ahead of his scheduled Sept. 12 return date from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

For TMT star and super middleweight contender J’Leon Love (20-1, 11 KO’s), a rigorous training camp with Floyd Mayweather is nothing new.

Sparring has always been one of my favorite aspects of the sweet science and we were able to catch some great work this past week during a visit through the Mayweather Boxing Club out here in Las Vegas.

As we noted, upcoming amateur prospect Daquan Mays is back in town and he is eyeing a pro debut in the coming months, most likely in the lightweight division.

Hustle Boss was on hand inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas recently as super middleweight contender J’Leon Love (20-1, 11 KO’s) put in some spirited rounds with tough middleweight Quilistro ‘Kilo The Kid’ Modera (1-0).

Love is coming off of a scintilating 7th round TKO victory over Jason Escalera on June 21 at the MGM Grand while Modera is still new to the pro game. What “Kilo The Kid” does have is great experience with him in former world champion Fernando “El Feroz” Vargas, who was on hand while the action went down.

If there was ever a duo that was sure to get me some positive reaction to the June 20 Adrien Broner vs. Shawn Porter matchup and aftermath, upcoming talents Zach Cooper and J’Leon Love fit the bill.

Porter pulled off perhaps the biggest victory over his career thus far when he handled Broner over the course of 12 rounds. Porter was aggressive and calculated throughout the match and outside of a big knockdown he suffered in the 12th and final round, the Akron native was in control.

When I first spotted 7-year old Miah Davis inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, I instantly spotted her desire and talent.

Despite being completely new to the game at the time, you could tell instantly by Davis’ mitt work with Roger Mayweather that she was a naturally gifted fighter.

This past weekend, inside of the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., two-division world champion Timothy Bradley defeated previously undefeated junior welterweight titlist Jessie Vargas over the course of 12 rounds.

A lot of Bradley’s best traits were on display during the HBO-televised attraction, including his sheer grit, volume-punching, and ability to fight in closed quarters. The Palm Springs native overcame a spirited effort from Vargas before pulling away for the decision.

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.

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.

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.
