Floyd Mayweather Jr. in Las Vegas

Undefeated eight-time, five-division world champion boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. created media mayhem Wednesday with his workout at Mayweather Boxing Club ahead of his Super Welterweight World Championship Unification mega-bout against Canelo Alvarez set for Saturday, Sept. 14, at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Mayweather Jr. appeared less than three weeks before fight night with his legendary cutman Rafael Garcia and his manager and father Floyd Mayweather Sr. at the boxing club in Chinatown.

Our contributing videographer Richard Corey captured the melee and the excitement and posted his video on YouTube. Our thanks also to contributing photographer Tom Donoghue for his photo gallery of great shots.
