Floyd Mayweather Jr. Boxes Like Magic8142470
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has usually wanted to box, and many in his family had the same profession goals. His father once fought Sugar Ray Leonard. When he was young, his family was poor, and it was common to have no electrical energy in their home. This is in stark contrast to the life they can afford now.
Mayweather had an amateur record of 84-6 and won the Golden Gloves national championship in 1993. He won a bronze medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. The team and fans, as nicely as Mayweather himself, felt that he won his last bout, but the group appeal failed to reverse the decision of the judges.
Floyd Mayweather had his first pro bout in 1996, and from then to the early component of 1998, he won most of his bouts by knockout or by TKO. He was on his way to the top, and many people saw that coming. He won his first title, the WBC Super Welterweight Championship in 1998, and at the end of the year, The Ring ranked him at number 8 on the list of best boxers, pound for pound.
Mayweather continued to defend his title and he fought Diego Corrales, winning every round. The reporters said that his speed was dazzling. He won, and defended the WBC Super Featherweight title by defeating Carlos Hernandez, in what he described as one of the most difficult fights in his profession.
In the lightweight class, Mayweather fought and defeated Jose Luis Castillo as his first bout in the division. Castillo simply was not quick enough to fight Mayweather and win. They fought in a rematch at a later date and Mayweather won by unanimous choice.

Mayweather also fought Arturo Gotti, who was at the time rated the number one contender by The Ring. Mayweather was merely too quick for Gotti, and won when the fight was stopped following the sixth round. This gave Mayweather his third weight class title. He left that weight class and moved to the Welterweight division.
Following he fought Gotti, Mayweather fought a non-title fight and then beat Zab Judah to win the IBF Welterweight title. Mayweather landed a blow below the belt in round ten, and there was a melee in the ring following the blow and the call. Police had to assist restore order.
