Mayweather is the best fighter in the world, though super middleweight Andre Ward is gaining ground quickly. But it is hardly impossible for Mayweather to be beaten.
That he hasn’t been defeated in 44 fights is testament to his incredible work ethic and his attention to even the most minute details.
Mayweather said shortly after his win over Guerrero that he motivates himself by imagining what his opponent might be doing. If he thinks the opponent is sleeping, he heads out for a run or drives over to the gym for a workout.
His oversized entourage, nicknamed “The Money Team,” often shouts “Hard work; dedication,” while he’s training as tribute to their boss’ insatiable desire to push himself.
