Undefeated pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather was broadcasting live on UStream during training camp and if you were fortunate enough to tune in, you were in for treat. To the surprise of those that were watching, Mayweather donned his headgear, stepped into the ring and began sparring with up-and-coming jr. middleweight Omar Henry, who was once nicknamed “Cotto Clone” for having a similar fighting style to that of WBA jr. middleweight champion Miguel Cotto. This might be the first time that fans have ever seen any video of Floyd Mayweather sparring since the infamous sparring session he had with Paul Spadafora, as he normally prohibits any cameras from filming while sparring sessions are taking place.
