Prior to this Mayweather always dismissed the Khazakstan fighter as ‘not at his level’.
In this writer’s opinion it’s no coincidence that the Al Haymon advised fighter Dominic Wade will be fighting GGG next. I’m positive Floyd Sr. and Roger will be watching this fight with eagle eyes looking for weaknesses and … Read Article
