As most have heard and seen by now, boxer “Pretty Boy” Floyd Mayweather is a contestant on this season’s “Dancing with the Stars”. But with an upcoming fight in December against Ricky Hatton, shouldn’t Mayweather be training rather than dancing? The show’s finale is November 27, with the Mayweather-Hatton bout going down on December 8. But he said that the dancing practice is incorporated into his training and will do him good for the fight.
"Floyd has his hands full, but he has lots of commitment and energy and he's doing great in practice," his "Dancing With the Stars" partner, Karina Smirnoff, told the LA Times. "He has what it takes to walk away with the trophy."
Of course, with Mayweather doing two-steps on TV, it’s prime material for trash talking from Hatton.
"It wouldn't be the sort of thing I'd do," Hatton told reporters after a recent press conference. "But the longer he stays in it, the better for me, so vote for Floyd. Actually it could be good training for the amount of back-peddling he'll have to do." Ouch!
I hope, for his sake, he's right because Hatton wil be more than ready.
