Floyd Mayweather can be a hard guy to read at times.

Sometimes the Grand Rapids native is reclusive and fair-weathered with the media, while other times he can be extremely talkative.

At the 2015 Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame, Hustle Boss caught up with boxing legend and former three-division world champion Marco Antonio Barrera.

A champion in the 122, 126, and 130 pound weight classes during an illustrious 22-year career, Barrera is beloved by fight fans for constantly leaving everything inside of the ring during his peak fighting years.

One of the biggest and best fights that can and hopefully will be made is a high-stakes showdown between Miguel Cotto and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

There appears a strong possibility that the match will land in Las Vegas sometime in November, but nothing is final as of yet.

It’s always interesting hearing what legends have to say about another in boxing.

During his 20-year career in the sport, Sugar Ray Leonard left an imprint that was undeniable. From winning world titles in five divisions to constantly facing the best that the game had to offered, there were very few who did it like Leonard and fans always love when he gives feedback on today’s crop of stars.
