As Las Vegas prepares for a throng of British supporters for this weekend’s showdown between Amir Khan and Zab Judah, Floyd Mayweather has opted to make an unprecedented gesture.
In preparation for his returns to the ring this September after being on hiatus for more than a year, has invited to the British boxing fans – traveling from the UK as well as those residing in the Las Vegas area - to attend his training session this Thursday July 21 at 3:00pm, to be held at Mayweather Boxing Gym in Las Vegas.
Fans are encouraged to arrive early as a massive turnout is expected.
Mayweather is currently training for a welterweight showdown with current titlist Victor Ortiz on September 17 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight will be his first since soundly outpointing Shane Mosley in May 2010, an event which sold more than 1.5 million pay-per-view buys.
