    That's pretty sick. You train out of Jeff's gym or something?

    That's surprising. You'd think that inheriting the Mayweather name would give you a bigger stature or at least your own gym, ha. So you don't box at all when you hang around Celestino? Sorry, new to Sherdog so I guess I'm not in-tuned with the regulars. Coming from the Boxingscene forums.

    Yeah, I hear he's the only sane Mayweather also, ha. Oh there's a lot of terrible boxers out there that anyone with half a brain cell could beat. Look up Slug Out Boxing or Charlie Zelenoff on Youtube and it should boost your confidence haha. Plus, there's also the masters (seniors) league in the AM's, so it's not like you have to have experience. If you were at Mayweathers gym I'd assume you're in the Nevada area, unless it's not the gym I'm thinking of? Boxing should be pretty big around there to find an opponent, or big enough.

    Ha yeah, with Jeff in your corner and surrounded with good/great prospects that you already are, you'll fine and likely win.

    Great Post. I've been keeping an eye on Brandon Gonzalez for a while now since he is Sacramento native. Good to see he's getting quality training out there in Vegas.

    your threads make me think about doing sports writing of some sort. i mean, if you hung around these cats long enough, you've got yourself a book! pretty cool in my opinion.

    more importantly though, get some footage of that singing/sparring. haha jm.

    Did you get to ask Jeff Mayweather why his nephew keeps ducking Pacquiao? I know it probably would be a sensitive question to ask while you're in their gym, but if you could ask it in a way that is indirect, maybe we could get some insights regarding the ducking subject. You don't even need to get any complete answers. Just hints here and there that could give you hints that you may want to post here for all of us to analyze.

    Good post. Good thread. I wonder how much the Mayweather's charge just to work out for an hour or so in their gym?

    Mayweather is in a class all by himself.

    Any news on who caballero is fighting? I was so excited when I heard he might fight Gamboa, but as we all know that fell through. Last I heard he was trying to get on HBO's triple header but had no opponent.

    BTW great post

    would be nice for him to fight someone his own size for a change. it must suck being his opponent and having a guy cutting a bunch of weight to go down and beat up on guys half his size.

    I agree. Caballero is getting up there in age for his weight class and I'd hate to see him get his shot too late.
