On today’s LIVE with Kelly and Michael, FLOYD “MONEY” MAYWEATHER joined hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan for a candid interview, and some training tips as well! After entering the studio to a shower of “money” from the audience, Mayweather talked about his record-setting pay-per-view fight with Canelo Alvarez, the team that supports him in his efforts and his unconventional training regimen. He also talked about his new nickname, after Strahan asked him about going from “Pretty Boy” to “Money” to “Half a B.” Photos by David Steele/Disney-ABC Domestic TV
Mayweather: “They say I’m the $500 million man because of my total overall deal.”
Strahan: “So that’s your new nickname?”
Kelly: “Oh my gosh.”
Strahan: “My new nickname is ‘Nowhere Near the B.”
Kelly: “They call me ‘Half the B’ but the ‘B’ stands for something else.”
Mayweather also schooled Strahan and Ripa on the finer points of the punching bag, speed bag and jump rope.
