FLOYD MAYWEATHER’S corner has been volatile in years gone by, from furious arguments with his father to reconciliation. Floyd Snr will be his head trainer for this fight. His uncle Roger Mayweather has been an integral part of his training and is still closely involved. A commanding force in the ring though, tactically Mayweather appears to be his own man and make his own decisions. Alex Ariza who once was Manny Pacquiao’s strength and conditioning coach has resurfaced in Floyd Mayweather’s camp.

No nonsense Justin Fortune has taken control of Pacquiao’s conditioning training. Manny has had a hugely successful relationship with his coach Freddie Roach [pictured above]. An experienced trainer of champions, Roach has spent years honing his gameplan for Mayweather. The tricky part will be executing it.
