Floyd Mayweather’s last serious boxing matches came in 2015 when the undefeated legend edged Manny Pacquiao and Andre Berto to retire with a ’49-0′ record.
Although he returned to the ring to take that to a perfect 50-0 two years later, it was a much less difficult contest as he knocked out Conor McGregor, and he later admitted he didn’t not 100% trained.
Mayweather has also returned to the ring for two exhibition bouts since retiring from professional fighting.
First, he knocked out Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve in late 2018.
Then, last June, he went the eight-round distance with YouTuber Logan Paul.
Ultimately, though, it’s been over six years since his last full training camp, and yet he’s still in immense form.
In his prime, he ate like a champion to fight like one and his personal chef, J Santiago, offered insight into his diet in 2017 ahead of his fight with McGregor.
He started his day with a typical breakfast including: eggs, home fries, oatmeal, pancakes and a meat option like bacon, turkey sausage or turkey ham.

Santiago explained that his comfort food was a plate of spaghetti bolognese, which she revealed he ate almost every day before the fight.
Speaking to TMZ, she added that grilled chicken and baked chicken with rice and gravy were also a staple of the legend’s diet.
Many boxers naturally let go once they leave the sport and no longer need to stick to a strict training regimen.
However, Mayweather is keeping in top form as he travels the world in retirement.
This allows him to continue boxing in exhibition contests even now.
In January, he showed his skills on the pads hadn’t faltered either, hitting them for 20 minutes straight without a rest.
Mayweather turned 45 in February and is now taking the ‘Money’ show to Dubai where he will fight fittingly on the Burj Al Arab luxury hotel helipad against Don Moore.
“It’s always been one of my goals to come to the UAE and put on a show and show my talent to people in the Middle East.”
