Warning: the above video includes some not-safe-for-work language.
The buildup to the biggest boxing match of the 21st century took a crossover turn into swimming territory this week, as undefeated multi-time world champ Floyd Mayweather has started cross-training in the pool.
Mayweather will fight multi-time world champ Manny Pacquiao on May 2. The two are arguably the best-known boxers in the world at this point, and have danced their way around a head-to-head meeting for over five years.
But with the highly-anticipated match less than a month away, ESNews has produced a video discussing Mayweather’s new training strategy, which includes swimming as a full-body cross-training exercise. Specifically, ESNews talks to retired boxing pro Robert Garcia, who now coaches the sport.
You can check out the video above, but be warned that Garcia lets some four-letter words fly in his enthusiastic descriptions of Mayweather’s new training regimen.
For swimming fans who weren’t previously interested in the fight, this revelation might add some personal intrigue to the early-May superfight.
