ZAB JUDAH is enjoying his time in Floyd Mayweather’s Las Vegas training camp, despite having some initial concerns about joining Mayweather’s preparations for the May 2 megafight with Manny Pacquiao.

The pair fought back in 2006 – Mayweather won a decision but was given some tough moments by Judah – and Brooklynite Zab was not sure how their reunion would go, considering the pair trash-talked each other in the build-up to their clash, despite them having spent time together since.

“I do consider him a friend, but I didn’t know how it was going to turn out and how it was going to be. The first day walking through the gym I went there by myself and finally Floyd came in the gym and he started loosening up, he was stretching, and he saw me through the mirror and turned around and said, ‘What up?’” Judah revealed to Boxing News. “And I replied, ‘What up?’ And he was like, ‘Ah man, thanks. I appreciate it.’ And I was said, ‘Good luck. I appreciate it too.’
