Floyd Mayweather has proved he's not lost any of his boxing skills with an impressive 'no-look' pad workout ahead of his upcoming exhibition fight. Watch the video below:
Mayweather, 45, takes on his old sparring partner Don Moore, 45, at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, in a rearranged fight from last weekend.
Mayweather returns to the ring for the first time since facing YouTuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul in another non-judged exhibition fight last June.
And the former five-weight world champion looks to have kept himself sharp since his last bout.
An impressive video of Mayweather working the pads ahead of Saturday's fight has circulated on social media.
In the clip, Mayweather fires off a series of slick combinations while avoiding his pad man's shots.
Remarkably, he manages to do this for several minutes while mainly staring at the camera.
Boxing journalist Michael Benson posted the clip to Twitter, alongside the caption: "Floyd Mayweather effortlessly showing that he's still a master of his craft at age 45 ahead of his exhibition fight with Don Moore in Abu Dhabi tonight…"
However, some fans on social media believe the pad routine was highly choreographed and that Mayweather's trainer did the majority of the work.
"That pad man is working overtime," wrote one fan on Twitter.
He's not tho the the man on the pads is doing all the fast hard work 🤣🤣🤣🤣— Nathan Ford (@NathanF01000643) May 21, 2022
Yes Mike. What Floyd is doing there is easy. Any man could walk off the street and do that with that man holding the pads.— Mark Stanton ⚒ (@mr_stanton76) May 21, 2022
Actually might pay for this fight always alot to learn from watching Floyd— YourBoxing 🥊 (@YRagejr) May 21, 2022
Another added: "Choreography at its best...pad guy moves more. Floyd is the man but this is b******."
Mayweather was original due to face Moore last Saturday in an exhibition bout on the helipad of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai.
His death led to a three-day work suspension in the UAE and a 40-day mourning period in the nation.
The fight was hastily rescheduled for this Saturday and will now take place in neighbouring Abu Dhabi.
