If you have a ticket for the Floyd Mayweather fight, there are a few things you may want to know before the fight. The first thing you will want to check is the start time. Although it will be an early morning fight, there are several options for when you can watch the fight.
KSI’s Misfits Boxing brand will host the fight
KSI’s Misfits Boxing is set to host the next Mayweather fight, which will be hosted by KSI and his brother Deji. Deji has an amazing YouTube following with over 10 million subscribers. He has also won two fights, including his first bout against Fousey in August.
The British YouTube star KSI is also the founder of Misfits Boxing, a promotional company. The fight will take place in the UK, in Wembley Arena. This will be a free fight, and will be broadcast on DAZN.
KSI has been an influencer and a rapper, but now he is making his mark as a boxer. KSI was one of the first social media stars to jump into the ring. His brother Deji is now poised to enter the ring, and KSI has been there every step of the way.
KSI’s Misfits Boxing has already aired two events. KSI’s Misfits X-Series event in Sheffield on October 15 featured two fights, one of which was between Jay Swingler and Cherdleys. That fight was the main card.
KSI’s Misfits Series 002 has been announced. It will be held in 2022. After Deji’s fight, KSI will face Dillon Danis. KSI will also have an exhibition match against Jake Paul.
Mayweather’s talent transcended the industry
If you’re a boxing fan, you’re probably familiar with Floyd Mayweather. The former undefeated world champion has been a dominant force in the sport for the last 21 years. He’s a top-notch talent and has built a huge empire of sports and entertainment.
Although he’s made a lot of money, he also racked up a number of detractors. In fact, he has a chip on his shoulder and a desire to be respected. His latest move may just be the best way to get some of that respect.
There are a number of things to learn from Floyd Mayweather’s journey. For example, he turned boxing into a business, and he partnered with an industry-leading team.
As a result, his talent transcended the sport. During his career, he’s won more world titles than anyone else in the sport, and he’s even fought some of the greatest names in history.
He was the first African-American pay-per-view star. This is no small feat. When he fought Arturo Gatti five years ago, the fight sold 369,000 pay-per-view units.
Another of his feats was creating his own boxing promotion. It’s called Mayweather Promotions, and it’s one of the most successful in the sport.
Mayweather won a near-shutout over “Goyo” Vargas
The world’s biggest pay-per-view draw has won a near-shutout over “Goyo” Vargas. Mayweather earned $32 million for the fight, which was his first fight since returning from jail.
Mayweather started his boxing career at 22 years old. He began by fighting in amateur matches. In 1994, he won the national Golden Gloves Championships.
He followed in the footsteps of Henry Armstrong and Sugar Ray Leonard. His uncle, Roger Mayweather, was also in the boxing industry. After a stint in prison for drug trafficking, he returned to the sport and became a trainer.
He was hired by Roger Mayweather. Mayweather, Jr. went on to win 15 major world championships.
In 2002, Mayweather fought Jose Luis Castillo. The fight was a tactically sound 12-round battle. Mayweather won a unanimous decision, and became the WBC lightweight champion.
Castillo took a break in the eighth round, but Mayweather kept hitting him. He landed more power shots, and more overall punches.
Mayweather turned around the fight in the middle and late rounds, and threw a lot of right hands and jabs. But he also used his shoulder roll. This technique, a traditional boxing move, twists left and right to the rhythm of a punch’s landing.
Mayweather’s pound-for-pound dominance of Gatti
If you ask me, Floyd Mayweather’s pound-for-pound dominance of Marco Gatti was the best fight of 2008. Not only did Mayweather beat Gatti, he also won the WBC world super welterweight title.
The fight started with a bang. Gatti was stunned by Mayweather’s power and speed. He had no response to the first shot and dropped to one knee. A barrage of lethal shots led the referee to stop the action.
In the second round, Mayweather landed four powerful lefts to the face of Gatti. By the third round, the Gatti crowd had been largely silenced.
After the fourth round, Mayweather had the fight under control. Gatti looked for the kill, but was backed into a corner. On a low crouch, Mayweather hit him with a left hook and dropped him. As he fell, Gatti had no defense to return fire. It was the first time that Mayweather had a real chance at dropping Gatti.
The fight was the first step in a journey that has taken Mayweather to the top of the pound-for-pound list. It also made him the undisputed lightweight and welterweight champion.
In the ensuing fights, Mayweather continued to win big. He knocked out DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley in the eighth and tenth rounds. The scores were 89-81 at the time of the stoppage.
Mayweather’s exhibition fight with Mikuru Asakura
Floyd Mayweather is back in action after retiring from professional boxing. This time, he will face MMA star Mikuru Asakura in an exhibition bout. Both fighters will compete in three rounds of three minutes each.
The bout will be live on FITE TV’s streaming service. Fans can watch the fight at 8 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. PT on September 24.
Although the fight is an exhibition, the fight will count towards both fighters’ pro records. It will not count toward their record in any other weight class.
In the second round, Asakura landed a couple of clean shots, but he was unable to beat the count. That was when Mayweather decided to take control of the fight. He hit Asakura with a powerful counter right hand.
After that, Asakura tried to throw more power punches. But Mayweather blocked them. Eventually, he finished Asakura off by flooring him with a hard right hand.
However, the fight was a success. Mayweather knocked out Asakura in the first round. Afterward, the two talked with the announcers. During that conversation, Mayweather pointed out Manny Pacquiao, who was also ringside for the bout.
Even though it was an exhibition, both fighters had their fair share of reactions. At one point, Asakura appeared to stun Mayweather.
Mayweather’s tactics in the fifth round of the Floyd Mayweather fight
If you’ve been watching Floyd Mayweather’s recent fights, you’ve probably noticed that he uses a variety of tactics to defend himself. In his recent bout against Marcos Maidana, he used a number of techniques to keep Mayweather on the ropes. These tactics include using the lead shoulder to deflect punches.
After a hard opening round, Mayweather was slow to respond. He hung on the ropes, even when pushed back, and resisted pressing for a knockout. That allowed Maidana to pound him low and win some rounds by sheer volume of punching.
In the fourth round, a clash of heads opened a cut over Mayweather’s right eye. He claimed that it left him with impaired vision for two rounds. But a post-fight press conference revealed that the cut was not as severe as originally thought.
Floyd Mayweather’s use of the check hook is impressive. It’s used like a jab, but with more power. The check hook is thrown on the opponent’s side, as they come forward, and it’s meant to stop them dead in their tracks.
Floyd Mayweather’s use of this technique is a perfect example of his ability to adapt to his opponents. He deflects most of their punches, and he slips punches through their gloves.
Mayweather’s contract proposal
In May, Mayweather announced that he had signed a six-fight contract with Showtime Networks. This deal is said to be the richest individual athlete deal in sports, and it will see him leave HBO.
Mayweather’s contract offer has been the subject of considerable coverage in the media. But one detail remains unclear. It’s whether or not Mayweather will be allowed to test his blood for drug use.
As a result, there’s a good chance that his offer is just a publicity stunt. He could try to renegotiate his contract, but the NFL is unlikely to allow this.
Arum and Haymon, who also promote Pacquiao, met in 2006. Both men sat on a chair on the couch. They were discussing their respective companies’ plans for the fight.
The negotiations were going well. But after several months of talks, the parties began to fight. Ultimately, a nasty war of words broke out.
Mayweather’s team believes the first encounter between the two was planned. Initially, they had agreed to meet in a hotel suite. At one point, a video camera was set up outside the door. However, they didn’t tell Pacquiao why they were there.
After they’d finished talking, Mayweather had a videographer follow him to Miami. He also brought a female companion.
