Roy Nelson Working With Mayweather To Sharpen Boxing Game


“We actually started yesterday. He is a very fun guy. He’s a lot like Mo, but he’s also combative. He is a very nice guy and one thing I can honestly say that I didn’t understand is that this guy has great defense. He’s a very fun guy and he’s entertaining. He loves to have fun, even when he’s working out and stuff; he’s a lot like Mo in that aspect. He is a fun guy to work with. My whole thing is that I’m trying to tighten his defense up, maybe increase his hand speed and increase his punch output a little bit. In the first day, I can say I was surprised by his defense. He is a very fun guy to work with, very talkative, combative, and a lot like Mo when it comes to me doing my ‘Doom’ session. But it’s one of those situations where hopefully I can add to him and he will take my advice in the right way and he can pull off this victory. I heard this is a very important fight for him and his UFC career is basically on the line.”
