Earlier today it was revealed that Floyd Mayweather will indeed be facing off with former WBC welterweight titlist Andre Berto inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev. on Sep. 12.
The confirmation of the matchup, as seen on Mayweather’s personal Instagram page, ends weeks of speculation in regards to the matchup that hasn’t exactly set the world on fire.
Mayweather is coming off of a historic victory this past May 2, where he soundly defeated rival Manny Pacquiao in the most financially lucrative bout in the history of the sport. The Pacquiao fight was such a mega-fight that it could be expected that there would be a letdown for his September appearance.
And while Berto may not be the fight the world was clamoring for, as the Haitian-American has gone just 3-3 in his past 6 bouts, it still should be a fight full of some kind of drama.
For Mayweather, the beat goes on. During a recent swing through the Mayweather Boxing Club, Hustle Boss was able to obtain exclusive, behind-the-scenes coverage prior to Mayweather’s training.
What you can see in the video below is just how packed the gym is, as familiar faces are all around, including sparring partners Lanardo Tyner, Will Clemons, Juan Heraldez, Steve Forbes, Ramon Montano, and DonYil Livingston, who have all worked with Mayweather previously.
Also in the mix are fellow fighters Marco Hall, Marcellus Williams, Ashley Theophane, Maurice Lee, and 5-year old Money Prince Duarte.
