MAYWEATHER, narrated by “NCIS: Los Angeles” star LL COOL J (@llcoolj), tells the life story and career arc of the charismatic fighter, Floyd Mayweather (@floydmayweather), who is universally recognized as the world’s pound-for-pound best boxer with an undefeated record of 43-0. The primetime special also examines the hard-working approach taken by his opponent, the fierce and accomplished world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (@Ghostboxing), who has endured incredible challenges throughout his career to reach this May 4th fight.

“LL COOL J’s passion for boxing and his keen performing acumen combine to create the perfect voice to tell the complete life story of Floyd Mayweather,” said Executive Producer Ross Greenburg, who has produced multiple documentary series on the fighter since 2007. MAYWEATHER is an honest portrayal of the controversial and charismatic best pound-for-pound boxer in the world and a compelling look at his blue-collar, working-man’s opponent, Robert Guerrero.”

WELL, OKAY, then! This will be something to see. And I will not say why. I can hide in plain sight. The Cali (humbug) Holy Ghost and his Ghost Dad CANNOT! They are going to get the greatest ghostbustering arse thrashing in the H of professional pugilism. Holla!

amayseng says:

Rafael I think it will be closer than that.

Cotto won 5/12 rounds against Floyd.

Sure cotto is experienced. Solid. Tough.

But he was worn Badley. Way past prime.

Then trout handled him easier than Floyd did.


Floyd also took 2-3 rounds mid fight to get his second wind.

I think it will be a close clear cut win for Floyd.

But competitive.
