Two-time National Amateur champion and former #1 Olympic seed Semajay Thomas is back training in Las Vegas at the Mayweather Boxing Club as his professional debut inches closer.

As recently reported, Semajay was recently in Colorado Springs helping WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner prepare for his February 17th clash with Gavin Rees in Atlantic City.

Thomas now finds himself in the fight capital of the world and will surely get all the work he needs as his March 19th debut in Elf Grove, Illinois is just around the corner.

Having always looked up to Floyd Mayweather, Thomas recently finished up a lengthy run with the sport’s reigning pound-for-pound king.

“Just Finished a 8mile jog wit my big bro The best P4P Fighter @FloydMayweather,” Thomas stated via his personal Twitter account.

Thomas trains under former heavyweight contender Nate Jones, who he knows from his roots in Chicago. Jones is known by some as the burly character who holds the body bag for Mayweather during training.
