“He turned off the bell and said: ‘I’m going to spar you until you quit'”
There are no clocks in Las Vegas. Gamblers and revellers are encouraged to forget the time and enjoy themselves all night but, recently, the city has been forced into slumber.
Then, suddenly in the middle of the night, the phone rings and Floyd Mayweather demands a sparring session.
“When we’re sleeping, he’s working,” sighs the recipient of the call. Mayweather’s gruelling sparring sessions have become mythology but he has been retired for three years and is 43 years old so why is he quietly continuing to box?
