Mayweather takes training for Pacquiao fight to swimming pool
Floyd Mayweather Jr. took his training for his upcoming megafight against Manny Pacquiao to the pool.
Mayweather posted an Instagram video of himself doing boxing exercises in the pool before going for laps to swim with his strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza, a former member of Pacquiao’s corner, overseeing his training.
The WBA and WBC welterweight titleholder has been trying different training methods as part of his preparations for the May 2 showdown. Just last month Mayweather made news after he showed another video of himself chopping wood as part of his training.
Over at Team Pacquiao, the Filipino boxing legend has also been documenting his training through social media. Pacquiao has posted videos of himself working on his conditioning as he goes through his routine morning roadwork sessions. CC
