FLOYD MAYWEATHER:

"I've been boxing Kassim Ouma; he's been giving me some good work. I got Kassim Ouma, Deandre Latimore, Sechew Powell, and I got some other guys that came in. I got 4, 5 or 6 guys, so I got some good work. Everbody else has been impressed with my work, but I think I can do better," stated undefeated pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather, who took a brief break from his busy training schedule to give us an update on how everything has been going for his upcoming September 17 return to the ring to face WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz. Check it out!

BT: How's everything going, man?

FM: Everything is going good. I gotta get ready to do my run. I'm on my way over there to do my run right now. That's where they're taking me to.

BT: I heard you've been running through sparring partners already.

FM: I've been boxing Kassim Ouma; he's been giving me some good work. I got Kassim Ouma, Deandre Latimore, Sechew Powell, and I got some other guys that came in. I got 4, 5 or 6 guys, so I got some good work. Everbody else has been impressed with my work, but I think I can do better.

BT: A lot of people are curious as to why you don't work with one of these strength and conditioning coaches that a lot of other fighters use.

FM: I don't need no strength and conditioning coach. All I need is God.

BT: That's all Floyd Mayweather needs? If it ain't broke, don't fix it?

FM: You know I do three workouts a day. But Ben, who's the fighter that just fought Zab?

BT: You mean Amir Khan?

FM: Jessie Vargas wants to know why Amir Khan is ducking and dodging.

BT: (Laughing) You trying to get Jessie in the ring with him?

FM: Yeah. He's asking for him. Everybody is ducking and dodging him. He's my fighter and he wants him.

BT: That's funny because Amir said he wants you.

FM: He don't really want that; not selling 2500 tickets and having a bunch of giveaways. No, he don't want that. Okay Ben, I'm at the place. I'm about to get my run in.

BT: Alright my man. I'll catch up with you later.
