Haute Living Los Angeles sat down for an in depth interview with WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. who returns to action on May 3rd in a unification showdown with WBA champion Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

On his upcoming fight: “Maidana earned this opportunity to fight me. he gained my attention from his last fight, where he showed that he is a true champion, and is getting better with each fight of his career. He is a great champion, and so am I. when you put that combination together, you get a fight for the fans, a fight they want to see, which is my goal every time I fight,” Mayweather explains. "I’m an entertainer, and everything I do when it comes to my career is with the fans in mind. this is the best fight for them, and I'm confident that fighting Maidana was the right decision.”

“As I always say, 45 have tried, and 45 have failed, but Maidana is a special case, coming off that big win against [Adrien Broner]. He is a special fighter who can knock you out with one punch. I have to fight strategically against a guy like Maidana, someone I cannot overlook. I will sit down with my uncle Roger and father [Floyd Sr.] and come up with a game plan that will make Maidana the 46th fighter to try and fail.

On friend Mark Cuban: “Mark Cuban [and I] did “Dancing With the Stars” together and instantly had a connection. he gave me good advice about daring to be different and finding ways to have my money make money for me,” Mayweather says.

On being a champion: “[The word champion means] being the best. I call myself tbe, which stands for ‘The Best Ever,’ and I fight to keep that legacy going and make sure that is what I'm known as after I'm done with the sport of boxing,” he declares.

On his training schedule: I always shape, but it is an adjustment to make that transition to being in camp day in and day out. I wake up around 3 a.m., have a light breakfast and then to go the boxing gym. before training, I start with a massage to get my muscles warmed up, followed by some shadow boxing. then I hit the pads and mitts with my Uncle roger and move on to the heavy bag and speed bag. then, I’ll do somewhere between 300 to 500 sit-ups and about 100 push-ups. I jump rope for a good 15 to 20 minutes and then do several dozen pull-ups. I also spar three times a week and go at least 15 rounds. After we finish there, we go for a run, usually five to eight miles, but the length varies from day to day and time of day. sometimes I will run at three in the morning. I like to get my exercise through other sports too. I love to play basketball; it is my favorite sport outside of boxing and one of my favorite workouts.”
On the finer things in life: “I love nice things and can afford to buy them,” he says simply. “I treat myself all the time, and why not? I enjoy life and having my home, cars, jewelry and nice clothes represent that lifestyle, and that is okay by me. I like things that are sleek without being gaudy. you won’t see fancy rims or tinted windows on any of my cars,” he promises. “I don’t have any tattoos either. I just like things classy and clean-looking. I have had stacks of money on my bed just to count them, not to sleep with them. If you know my background and where I come from, to be where I am today and have the money I have Is crazy.”
