Mayweather: No Issue With Legs, I'm Faster This Camp!

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he is planning to retire from the sport in 2015. Mayweather is planning on having two more fights after this weekend’s rematch with Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas before hanging up his gloves.

Despite showing little sign of decline the reigning two-weight world champion, who will be defending his WBA and WBC welterweight and light-middleweight titles against Maidana, has said it is imperative he gives his body sufficient rest.

“As you get older, you get wiser, smarter. You no longer grow physically but you do mentally. When I was younger I would go to the gym, every day, even as a professional.

“As you get older you have to let the body rest, let the body heal and rejuvenate so you can come back a lot stronger. Over the last few years I have let my body rest a lot more, eat a lot better although I cheat a little at Fatburger.”

The undefeated star, with a record of 46-0, has also fired a warning shot to Maidana ahead of the bout admitting he is quicker than he’s ever been.

Some have questioned if he is as fleet footed as he once was, especially given how close the first encounter was with the Argentine, but Mayweather has poured scorn on such claims.

“When I am in the ring I know what I have to do. Facing so many different styles throughout the years, making adjustments is second nature. [My legs] looked good in the first fight. When a guy like that is extremely dirty I have to take my time,” he said.

“I am capable of changing. I’m faster this camp, a lot stronger, feel a lot better. We will have to see how the fight plays out. I am sure he is in good condition and we’ll see what he brings.

“I think I am faster because I am throwing more combinations this camp. The sparring partners have said I am a lot better. We have used some of the same guys and they say I am a lot stronger and faster this camp.”

[QUOTE=CatchAndShoot;14938640]Age didn't catch up to him overnight, the weight cutting did. He went from HW to LHW in one fight. That's stupid.[/QUOTE] Jones didn't age overnight and yeah he was definitely old when he fought Tarver.
