Mayweather Jr. Spars With Omar Henry For Cotto Clash

Undefeated middleweight prospect Omar Henry confirmed that on Thursday he finished putting in work with Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the Ten Goose Boxing Gym in Van Nuys, California.

Mayweather is prepping for a May 5th assignment with WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto, set to take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, and I had wondered whether or not Henry would eventually see time as one of his sparring mates given his stylistic similarities to Cotto.

Of Puerto Rican descent and hailing from Chicago, Illinois, Henry is a stout and compact fighter with serious pop in both of his fists. The 25-year old spent the early part of his career fighting under Top Rank but signed an exclusive deal with Don King Productions this past June.

Henry has spent time training at the Mayweather Boxing Club in the past and considers Floyd a close friend. I vividly remember Henry going to war with Sacramento’s Brandon Gonzales in August of 2010 inside of the building as Mayweather watched on and cheered at the intense, back and forth action between the two fighters.

But while the camaraderie between the two fighters seems thick, that didn’t stop Mayweather from chiding his younger friend during their work together.

“Incredible,” Henry said of his sparring with Floyd Jr. “Never went five minute rounds before and someone talking sh*t to me at the same time. I love it!”

Henry was only able to speak briefly, as he was still training at the gym, but expect a full-length interview to drop on him tomorrow afternoon…
