Firstly, taking quotes from Floyd’s uncle may not be the best way to gain an unbiased glimpse into his camp but since it’s on complete lockdown during these sparring sessions this is pretty much all we have.
Jeff Mayweather told David Mayo of MLive.com that Floyd absolutely demolished Zab Judah in their first sparring session:
“Just beat the (bleep) out of him,” Jeff Mayweather said. “He beat Judah so bad, Judah was scared to let his hands go.”
“Everybody was just hyped because they thought Judah was going to be something different, but Judah was worse than the other guys,” Jeff Mayweather said. “It seemed like Floyd had something personal against him. He beat the (bleep) out of him. So then he quit, he let Judah off the hook, because Judah’s got a fight coming up and he messed his eye up.
“In the second round, Judah didn’t have nothing left. He’s in shape. He’s got a fight coming up. But the thing is, Floyd, he’s on a different level right now. It may be just his mind, and all the (B.S.) he’s been dealing with with Manny over the years. Obviously, he’s taken that in some kind of way, and I mean, he’s punishing these guys.”
Jeff went on to make it clear that Floyd’s intensity has definitely grown for this fight:
“The kids, early in camp, they don’t care that he’s Floyd Mayweather,” he said. “They want to prove something. They’ve proved something, all right. They’re getting destroyed. He’s annihilating everybody. He’s a beast. This isn’t the same old Floyd.”
We will see if all of this training camp hype transitions to the ring on May 2nd, because despite having professional boxers in camp with him none are the caliber of Manny Pacquiao.
