Diaz Prepares For Peter
Two-time world champion "Pretty Boy" Floyd Mayweather Jr. looks super-sharp in training, sparring four-minute rounds, 10 to 12 heated rounds a day at the Top Rank gym in Las Vegas. "He looks good, conditioning is good - he's got the green-light for Miami," said chief trainer Roger Mayweather, speaking from the ring after Floyd Jr. took on three spar partners - working four rounds with each.
Mayweather, 32-0, is taking on Henry 'El Nitro' Bruseles, 21-2-1, of Puerto Rico at the AmericanAirlines Arena, Miami, on Saturday, Jan. 22. Mayweather is in top condition, peppering combinations, digging hard to the body and is in tremendous spirits.
He will train one more week in Las Vegas, then head for Miami on Monday, Jan. 17.
