Floyd Mayweather welcomed his uncle Roger Mayweather, who has been the fighter’s lead trainer for most of his career, back to the gym and his Las Vegas training camp this week for his May 5 super fight with Oscar De La Hoya.
Mayweather, who did not hire another trainer in his uncle"s absence, is ecstatic to have his lead trainer back in his corner after a six-month and one-fight absence.
"When he got to the gym we picked up where we left off and things were back to normal," said Floyd Mayweather.
"It's great to have my Uncle back and I never thought to pick someone else to train me, as I truly believe that my Uncle is the best in boxing and there is absolutely no substitute for what he can do."
Roger Mayweather agreed and said, "There is no time for catch-up. I'm happy to be back in the gym with my nephew and help him prepare for De La Hoya. I've been keeping close tabs on him and am very pleased with how things have been going so far. Now we"re ready to get down to serious business.
"They tell me the whole world is waiting and everyone will be watching this fight. Just wait until they see Floyd at his best and the fans will know why the Mayweather family dominates the sport."
