IT is fair to say Floyd Mayweather, son of former pro Floyd Snr and nephew of former world champion Roger, divides opinion.

Undefeated, brash, enigmatic and extraordinarily talented, “Money” has dominated the boxing landscape for one reason or another for the last 10 years.

From 2009-2014 it was, for the most part, because he and Filipino hero Manny Pacquiao, the two best fighters in the sport, failed to sign to fight one another. That controversy has been confined to the dustbin of history. The pair finally met last May at the MGM Grand and, true to his word, Floyd ran out a clear winner over 12 rounds.
