Floyd Mayweather Jr. Workout | Mayweather Boxing Club | April 14, 2015

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a gym rat. His workouts are sometimes so long that I get tired just photographing him. And sometimes, there are so many media spectators that I get an actual workout. It happened at one of Mayweather’s recent gym sessions in advance of his May 2 matchup with Manny Pacquiao. There were so many photographers around the ring that I couldn’t get up, and ended up shooting through someone else’s legs. (I warned him ahead of time so he wouldn’t think I was being too forward.)
