Floyd Mayweather’s swim drills amuses coach Roach


Boxing coach Freddie Roach couldn’t help but smile when he talked about Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s conditioning technique which involved swimming.

Alex Ariza, Manny Pacquiao’s former conditioning coach, introduced the routine to Mayweather who is preparing for the biggest bout of his life against the Filipino superstar.

Roach’s reaction was captured in a YouTube video posted by Top Rank Inc.

“I saw pictures… Floyd’s swimming,” said Roach. “I loved it. First time in his life he tried something new in the biggest fight of his life? C’mon, gimme a break.”

The boxing coach jested that Team Mayweather should hire a lifeguard on fight night.
