Mayweather has always been a student of the game going back to the early days of his own career and despite what he may have told people during his career about never watching his opponents on tape, you can bet that he was.

He’s a boxing fan alright, no doubt about it.
We’re now well in the post-Floyd Mayweather era of boxing where new stars like Anthony Joshua, Gennady Golovkin, Terence Crawford, Canelo Alvarez, Errol Spence and many others around the world are starting to make big names for themselves in the sport.
