Personally, and even rightly so, Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, attributes all his success to the work he puts in the gym. This also created the very famous Mayweather chants that his gym still uses to teach up-and-coming fighters. One person says ‘Hard Work’ out aloud, while everyone else responds, saying, ‘Dedication’.

Recently, after the much-anticipated Usyk fight between Anthony ‘AJ’ Joshua vs Oleksandr ‘The Cat’, Money May went live on Instagram to show his fans new workout footage. The former champion started off with punching the bags and ended the session with a light jog. However, Mayweather did not seem to be training at his usual intensity.

Off pace, the training seemed very slow and relaxed. However, concerned fans remain unaware of the reason behind Mayweather’s lack of agility. With no confirmed upcoming fight, it left fans puzzled over why the former champ was back in the gym working the bag.

The last time Floyd fought was earlier this year against YouTuber turned professional boxer Logan ‘The Maverick’ Paul. The fight went the distance for eight rounds, as Floyd outclassed his young counterpart. Notably, earlier this week, an old foe in the form of ‘The Golden Boy’ De La Hoya called Floyd out.
