It's just on an screen thing, or atleast he wasn't acting like he does on TV at all.

And it's not even like he was on his own, he was with Sam Watson and a group of his friends and I was by myself so you'd expect him to be playing up abit infront of all of those.
How do you meet all these fighters? Do you find out where they're staying or show up at press conferences or something?

I was staying at the MGM Grand and I literally bumped into every single fighter I met out there out of chance.

The fighters and fight people are always out and about at the MGM on a regular basis and a lot of them stay there.

So it's a benefit of living in Vegas, I guess. Kind of like knowing you'll run into a lot of celebrities if you live in LA or Hollywood.

So a benefit of visiting Vegas on fight week or fight night then. How many days you usually stay there before a fight?

Both nice without a hint of arrogance or dismissive attitude. I've also heard that Pernel Whitaker is a prick to people like Hearns apparently.

Then for the Guererro fight, the same thing. Guererro came out for 5 minutes to do an interview then Floyd stayed for well over an hour.

And he's the star.

Each time I've seen or spoken to him he's been polite, respectful and just a nice guy.

Adrien Broner was the same as crazy as that sounds. I met him a few weeks ago in Vegas.
These posts are eye opening.

The guys with huge followings cater to people and are willing to entertain.

Then you have others who do the bare minimum and simply see it as I'm a fighter my job is to only fight.

The guys you see in Vegas are getting paid as "Greeters"! Expugs always have a gig in Vegas to meet and greet the fans, it gets old and tiresome but its one way to earn off your past reputation! Been going on since Vegas hosted fights! Ray.

adrian broner and his crew of flunkies aren't getting paid as "greeters."

hearns might be doing this, but it's really not out of the question to see a fighter hanging out in a hotel lobby during the weekend of a big fight.


i don't get to vegas, but i'm at a lot of the big fights in CT and new york, and i see fighters shooting the breeze with fans all the time. most active fighters are very approachable, and they love the attention. i don't need to tell you that, ray, but i want to make sure we're properly representing the fighters.


to the guys in the thread:
if you see a boxer in public and he doesn't look explicitly busy (with his family, eating dinner, etc) i always suggest talking to him. most of them really appreciate the fans, and they love the attention. worst case scenario is that he's a bit rude, and then you call him out on the bscene
