Floyd Mayweather Jr. was born into a family of boxers, with his father and two of his uncles competing on the professional circuit. His father was also involved in drug trafficking and the difficulties Mayweather faced in his childhood are common knowledge. Instead of taking him to the park or movies like other children his age, Mayweather’s father took him to boxing practice and pushed him constantly, convinced he would one day be world champion.

The tough childhood years are what formed Mayweather into the boxer he is today, fierce and fearless. After receiving his first pair of boxing gloves at only 6 years old, he began to practice non-stop, even proclaiming that his life will always be associated with boxing. Punching sandbags, lifting weights and sparring with opponents is how Mayweather spent much of his childhood.

With all his natural talent on top of rigorous training, it was not difficult for Mayweather to find his way into the professional boxing ring. But the road to a professional career is never simple, he faced failures and difficulties almost every step of the way but his spirit, tenacity and hardiness is what got him to where he is. There’s no secret to Mayweather’s success, it’s all very clear: effort, effort, effort.

“A true champion can adapt to anything,” he has been quoted as saying. Mayweather’s attitude has relaxed since retiring but before that his practice regime was highly intense. He insisted on maintaining a healthy lifestyle in order to protect all the effort he had put in in the gym. Because of all this, it is unsurprising that he has maintained his perfect record and defeated all of his opponents.

Mayweather the Undefeated

To date, Mayweather has remained unbeaten in all 49 of his professional boxing matches, 26 with knockout wins, and was the top ranked boxer in the world. Mayweather has also won almost all of the major belts at the WBA, WBC and WBO. This isn’t the first high profile match Mayweather has been a part of, Mayweather faced Manny Pacquiao in May 2015 and came out victorious. Once you reach the top it is easy to become complacent but Mayweather has never allowed this to happen to him, constantly striving to improve and build his own legacy.

The 40 year old will once again come back from retirement in this year’s most anticipated fight against Conor McGregor, the UFC champion. Although many believe the odds favour Mayweather, it is difficult to say whether or not he will be able to hold on to his unblemished record.
