'No breaks at all' – Floyd Mayweather, 44, hits pads for 20 minutes straight with no rest as US icon prepares for return

FLOYD MAYWEATHER has been hitting the pads for 20 minutes straight with 'no breaks at all' as he prepares for his latest return.

The American legend is in the final stages of negotiations to fight YouTuber Money Kicks on February 20 in Dubai.


And despite facing an opponent with just ONE YEAR and two bouts worth of boxing experience, Mayweather is still hard at work.

He recently visited the Tengoose boxing gym in Los Angeles – run by trainer Ricky Funez – at 1am in the morning.

And Funez watched on as Mayweather trained on the pads with coach Gerald Tucker non-stop.

He told EsNEWS: "Floyd came in, he calls me like about 11 to turn on the heat, which he likes, the gym hot. He was happy.

"No breaks at all."

SunSport understands Mayweather is currently out in Miami training with coach Tucker, a former eight-fight unbeaten professional.

Mayweather, 44, officially hung up the gloves in 2017 after beating ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor, 33, in a crossover fight.

But he first returned by beating featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23, in a Tokyo exhibition.

More recently in June, Mayweather was taken the distance over eight rounds by YouTuber Logan Paul, 26, who weighed TWO STONE more.

His proposed spectacle with 20-year-old Money Kicks – real name Rashed Belhasa – is set to be over eight rounds.
