Boxing's pound-for-pound best, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is not only celebrating his 36th birthday today, he is also preparing himself for his six-fight plan to greatness. Despite now being at an age that has seen many great fighters — who rely on their reflexes rather than their power — begin to fade, Floyd’s star continues to shine as brightly as it ever has. In fact, it could be argued that Mayweather is even better today than he was six years ago at the age of 30 when he handled Oscar De La Hoya. He is always immaculately conditioned, due to his incredible and admirable work ethic and doesn't show any signs of slowing down. Even after taking long, potentially rust-gathering layoffs of a year or more, Mayweather’s brilliance continues to be on display. In many ways, it may be Mayweather’s ability to have aged like a fine wine that is remembered as one of his strongest accomplishments.
Enjoy “Money” while you can, appreciate his boxing mastery while you can, and look for his genius to show on May 4th when he takes on Robert Guerrero. He will only exit the game on his own terms, his “0” where he wants to keep it: at the end of his professional record.
