News from Floyd Mayweather’s training camp says he is destroying training partners as fast as they can be found.

Mayweather is ratcheting up his training in preparation for what many believe to be the fight of the century. Mayweather will be putting his 47-0 record on the line against welterweight rival and multiple division belt-holder Manny Pacquiao on May 2.

And Mayweather in’t leaving anything to chance.

His uncle, Jeff Mayweather, told MLive: “The kids, early in camp, they don’t care that he’s Floyd Mayweather. They want to prove something. They’ve proved something, all right. They’re getting destroyed

“He’s annihilating everybody. He’s a best. This isn’t the same old Floyd.”

Even luminaries like former undisputed welterweight champion Zab Judah have been enlisted to get the fighter ready. Judah gave Mayweather a scare in 2006, pushing his opponent to the final bell, only to lose a close decision.

Like Pacquiao Judah is a southpaw. Like everyone else in the Mayweather camp he got stomped.

“Everybody was just hyped because they thought Judah was going to be something different,” continued Jeff Mayweather, “but Judah was worse than the other guys.

“It seemed like Floyd had something personal against him. He beat the f*** out of him. So then he quit, he let Judah off the hook, because Judah’s got a fight coming up and he messed his eye up.

“It may just be his mind – and all the s*** he’s been dealing with Manny over the years. Obviously, he’s taken that in some kind of way. I mean, he’s punishing these guys.”

Pacquiao, by comparison, welcomed high profile footballer and Christian Tim Tebow (Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback for Florida).

“Awesome being with my Filipino and Christian brother,” said Tebow, who was born in the Philippines to missionary parents.

Pacquiao sparred seven rounds while Tebow watched from the gym floor.
