(SEPT 17) Last Friday at the Mayweather Boxing Gym, in Las
Vegas, Nevada, I had the pleasure of being able to attend the
"Mayweather Experience"------that could have easily been
described more like the "Fantastic Experience!"
The event was geared for boxing fans, upcoming boxers, and
anyone who wanted to do something that was totally unique in
Vegas. They had attendees that were as young as six, and one in
particular that I found the most inspirational.
In a Mayweather Experience pre-event press release they had
written: "Going to be in Las Vegas for the Mayweather vs. Canelo
fight? Now you can put your finger on the pulse of all the
action this fight weekend and live a Boxing fanís dream.
BoxerSponsors.com is presenting the ultimate boxing fanís dream,
an interactive experience with the most iconic family in boxing
history - The Mayweathers - they have created an opportunity to
start and end your day with Jeff, Roger and Floyd Mayweather Sr.
in Las Vegas."
The Mayweather Experience not only did not disappoint---but they
succeeded by far their goal for the people who attended.
It was amazing that the Mayweather's were able to manage the
huge amount of people who signed up to do the Experience. They
had a great influx of attendees, from one as young as six years
old to, one of the most inspirational that trained from within a
Also on scene at the event were multi-world world-champion Ava Knight,
top-amateur boxer Mikaela Mayer (with her coach), and Amy Green.
After the event, I had spoken with some of the people who
attended the event
or were involved with the organization of the event.....
Jordan Campbell of the United
Jordan Campbell, of the United Kingdom told me, "I always had a
slight interest in boxing from watching it on TV and things like
that but I really started to get into boxing around 2008-2009,
when I was over in Vegas to see the Hatton vs. Pacquiao fight,
which just happened to be coincidence of being there at the same
time but I went to the weigh in and watched the fight on closed
circuit and ever since then I've been hooked.
"I knew Floyd was
going to be fighting on Saturday and had kept up with the
rumours so I decided to come over and just be a part of fight
week to get the atmosphere of a Floyd fight and I was sent a
link to the Experience by Aaron who you know as well. When I
saw the price, I jumped at the chance to train in the Mayweather
Gym with Roger and Jeff. It was too good of an opportunity to
pass up," added Campbell.
Aaron Ormrod of the United
Another attendee, Aaron Ormrod, from the UK told me the
following, "I was told about the Mayweather experience by a
friend of mine. He sent me the link and I had a look around to
see what it involved, etc. I ended up booking shortly after. I
am not a boxer, just a big boxing fan. This trip was my third
Floyd fight live."
Ava Knight with Brian

Ava Knight told WBAN, " I attended the Mayweather Experience
because I wanted to be a part of this great opportunity to give
female boxing a boost. I wanted people to know we were still
doing great in the sport and what better experience to do it
than with the Mayweather experience. I was glad that
boxersponsor.com let me be a part of their events."
Charles Ingrams Jr. (right)
Charles Ingrams Jr. said, "We
(Adidas Boxing) were happy to be able to support the Mayweather
Experience, the energy in the place was... I can't explain it!
The relationship with Boxersponsors.com was easy to establish
because they are my 2nd job (lol) so it was a natural fit! We
are looking to partner again with the Mayweather's in the
future. Ava Knight is a friend of mine and she was more than
happy to come down and support. The Boxing community is a close
knit group and we should support each other whenever possible."
My own thoughts.....after attending this unique event that more
than packed the gym---the Mayweathers' not only met their
attendees expectations-----but most certainly exceeded them!
