MANILA, Philippines – Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he has been working hard for his comeback fight on September 17 against WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz.
In HBO’s preview of the “24/7” series featuring Mayweather and Ortiz, the undefeated American boxer said he has had a good training camp so far.
“Tremendous camp, great camp,” Mayweather said. “The main thing is good work, solid competition and solid work at camp.”
Mayweather added that he was staying focused for his bout against Ortiz, which will be his first boxing match in over 16 months.
Mayweather also did not seem very concerned about the whereabouts of his opponent.
“I don't know exactly where Victor Ortiz is training. I know he’s training in California. But wherever he’s training, I heard that it’s very very boring,” he said.
“We train in Las Vegas, Nevada,” Mayweather added. “We’re ready to go.”
The outspoken boxer also predicted the outcome of his match.
“Victor Ortiz is a knockout artist. Come September 17, he better look forward to getting knocked out. Simple as that,” Mayweather said.
