Floyd Mayweather Career

Before turning professional in the year 1996, Mayweather won three Golden Gloves at home and an Olympic bronze medal. He was given his first title as a super featherweight in 1988, and he went on to win belts in four different weight classes while remaining undefeated.

His dad Floyd Sr. introduced him to the gym not long after he began walking, holding his small son in front of the speed bags whenever they went. Mayweather was soon punching anyone who came into his line of vision. He was seven years old when he got his first pair of boxing gloves.

Little Floyd, as he was nicknamed, quickly established himself as a regular at his local gym, which was conveniently located just five doors down from his family’s home. He promptly adopted his father’s surname, signaling a desire to follow in his footsteps to boxing glory.

His family life was tumultuous. The elder Mayweather had a strong temper and was a narcotics dealer who dipped in and out of danger. In 1978, he was shot in the leg while holding his young son, and he was sentenced to prison for cocaine trafficking in 1993. Deborah Mayweather, Mayweather’s mother, also struggled with addiction.

Achieving Amateur Success

Mayweather found tranquility and control in the ring, away from the circus of his family. Mayweather, who was nicknamed “Pretty Boy” early in his career due to his unblemished face, won the national Golden Gloves in 1993, 1994, and 1996 with his fast, accurate style.
Mayweather’s amateur career was cut short on a sour note, despite his 84-6 amateur record. He was made to settle for just a bronze medal at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta after losing a disputed decision to Bulgaria’s Serafim Todorov.


On 11th October 11 1996, Mayweather made his professional debut. Mayweather continued to win at an incredible rate as a pro. Following his release from prison, the skilled boxer won several easy fights with his father acting as both manager and trainer. He won his first world title, the WBC super featherweight belt, in 1998 after defeating Genaro Hernandez.

Beginning in 2000, Mayweather’s career surged even faster, as he began on a seven-year run that had many fight fans hailing him as one of the sport’s all-time greats.

He amazed the boxing world by accepting to fight eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao on May 2, 2015, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Mayweather won a unanimous decision and kept his perfect record in the “Fight of the Century,” displaying his typical stout defense.

Mayweather agreed to fight Conor McGregor, a boisterous UFC champion who had boxed as an amateur before switching to mixed martial arts, in 2017. Mayweather agreed to compete with 8 ounce gloves as part of the deal, a compromise between the regular junior middleweight gloves of 10 ounces and the UFC’s 4 ounce mitts.

On August 26, 2017, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the fight finally took place after months of anticipation.

Mayweather, who is 40 years old and past his athletic heyday, overpowered his younger, stronger, and less experienced opponent, pummeling McGregor with a barrage of blows in the tenth round before being proclaimed the winner by TKO. With a 50-0 record, Mayweather declared his retirement for the second time. Mayweather battled Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition fight at the end of 2018 to keep his competitive impulses flowing. He announced on Instagram in November 2019 that he will be “coming out of retirement in 2020.”
