It is one of the features which helped PUSB claim the League One programme of the year, from the Midlands Programme Club, along with many other exciting features.

CHANGING PLACES…. With Andy Webster

Who would you change places with?

Floyd Mayweather

Why Floyd Mayweather?

He’s just got the lot. He’s successful and has been at the top of his game for so long. He’s got everything because of that, the fame, the money… but he’s earned it by staying at the very top.

What is his best quality?

Knocking people out! He loves to talk the talk, but he walks the walk too, he’s a four-weight world champion and every time he has had an obstacle in his way he has overcome it.

What is your best memory of him?

Not just one memory, more the fact that he has remained undefeated throughout his career. I like Ricky Hatton as a boxer but the night he defeated him in 2007 he was so clinical, you had to applaud him.

If you could pick any of his qualities for yourself what would they be?

His bank balance! I’d buy my own private Jet, it’d give you freedom and I wouldn’t be in a traffic jam again. No more Flybe! I’d also have his houses and cars, I’ve seen his Vines and Instagrams, his watch collection is just ridiculous.

If you could ask him one question what would it be?

What qualities does it take to be consistently successful in your profession?

PROFILE

Floyd Mayweather

Birthplace: Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA
Occupation: Professional Boxer
Titles: Four-weight World Champion, 47-0 Unbeaten Professional record, 2 X Ring Magazine Fighter of the Year (1998, 2007)

Biography

In Boxing there is a short list of men who have gone on to become World Champion, but an even shorter list of goliaths who have never lost a fight. When you think of the greatest, you think of Rocky Marciano, you think of Joe Calzaghe.. and you think of Floyd Mayweather.

Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Mayweather’s early life was troubled. Sharing a home with six siblings and no electricity, he was beaten by his Father (a claim he denies). His outlet was boxing, something he loved from a very young age. By his teens he became fully fledged in developing his career and went onto achieve an amateur record of 84-6, winning national championships in 1992, 1993 and 1996.

He turned professional in 1996 and after his 14th win, he reunited with his Father who had completed a jail term for drug trafficking. The Father-son combination would last for several years. In 1998 he won his first World title against Genaro Hernandez.

Over the next nine years Mayweather swept all before him, picking up several high profile victories, beating the likes of Zab Judah and the late Arturo Gatti. He really came to British consciousness when he beat the legendary Oscar De La Hoya, setting up a fight with Ricky Hatton.

It was to be Mayweather’s toughest test, but he came through it, winning by TKO in round 10. He has since registered eight more victories, beating the likes of Marcos Maidana twice and Saul Alvarez.

Interesting Fact:

The richest sportsman in the world, Mayweather is worth an estimated $280 million.
