It’s been almost two weeks since I was at the Mayweather Boxing Club now but an experience that will not leave me for some time as a memory.
I had first been to the Mayweather Boxing Club as a fan when I was around 23, five years or so earlier, but to have the opportunity to go back through Boxing News and Views over this past Christmas holidays was something a bit special for me on a personal note.
The main man himself Floyd Mayweather was not there on the two occasions I called into the popular and frequented gym not far from the Vegas strip, but the atmosphere, fighting talk, and pulsating beats of heavy bags was just how I remembered them.
It’s a fairly large gym overall, with two main rings and everything you would expect in a top professional boxing gym equipment-wise.
But it’s the fighting atmosphere that hits you more than anything else.
You really get the feel that these guys are serious about their craft, particularly with two of the world’s best trainers of the modern era as two of it’s resident coaches there:
But it’s not just top coaches and world class fighters that frequent the gym. Amateur fighters are also welcome and there was a good mix of people there on the day I visited:
When you get into the gym you are hit by pictures on the wall in the lounge area and then in the main gym of some of the big moments of Floyd Mayweather’s career, as well as an extensive set up as you make your way around the different rings and training areas.
Here’s a quick walk through in image format:
That’s pretty much a 360 tour of walking around the Mayweather Boxing Club – a boxing gym as well known as you’ll find anywhere in America really.
Shout out to Pat and Dawn Barry of Barry’s Boxing who initially introduced me to people at Floyd’s gym.
Check out our visit to their gym during my time in Vegas here, as well as my other gym visit to former world champion Shawn Porter’s facility here.
Last but not least, a quick mention to Otis from the Mayweather Boxing Club. Gentleman.
