While ramping up for big matches, some boxers maintain early-to-bed, early-to-rise regimens. They remain in solitude and adhere to rigid diets. Floyd Mayweather is not one of those boxers, as this peek at his training diary makes clear.
Floyd Mayweather rolls out of bed, skips the home shower and heads straight to Mayweather Boxing Club, his private gym in Las Vegas.
3:30 - 7:00 p.m.
Upon arriving at the Club, prior to training, he takes his morning shower. Over the next few hours, he might spar, hit the heavy bag, work the speed bag, do pad-work, sweat through a routine of calisthenics and sit-ups.
Mayweather leaves the gym and does his roadwork outside.
Showered and dressed, he heads home.
9:00 - 10:00 p.m.
Hungry from training, Mayweather often has his chef Quiana Jeffries (better known as Chef Q and best known for her $1,000-per-plate services) make him chicken or fish with vegetables. Either that or he’ll round up members of his Money Team and hit Fatburger on the Vegas Strip.
10:00 p.m. - 3:00 a.m.
This is downtime for Mayweather, who famously likes to surround himself with friends. They might watch a game on DVR–and there’s a good chance that he'll have money riding on the outcome–or screen a movie. Massages and music-listening sessions might also be in the offing. By 3:00 a.m., the champ’s day begins to wind down.
4:00 - 8:00 a.m.
Anytime between these hours, Floyd Mayweather will go to bed–and, quite possibly, enjoy dreams of championship belts.
