Mayweather vs. Marquez-24/7 Episode 2 Recap

Juan Manuel Marquez will be fighting at the heaviest weight of his career when he steps into the ring against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in two weeks. Therefore his training and diet were much of the focus in the latest edition of 24/7.

He is up at dawn and training at 14,000 feet. Rigorous, rockwork is followed by a trip down the hill and a nice, big cup of blended Quail eggs for the protein and vitamins they provide. I’ll take his word for it…

When at the Romanza gym, trainer Nacho Beristain has brought in sparring partners to fight identical to Mayweather. In studying tapes of past Mayweather fights he has noticed certain shoulder dips and motions that he feels if played out by sparring partners, will give Juan a sneak peak into what to expect September 19th.

Mayweather, who’s training with weights and medicine balls, is the more conventional method, showed blazing speed on the bags. His mitt work with Uncle Roger never gets boring. The guy is a real specimen in the ring and still has that killer instinct.  He does not allow HBO to film his sparring sessions, so when the cameras were turned back on some 45 minutes later, only to show his sparring partner a bloody mess, Roger Mayweather summed it up best as he usually is incapable of doing, by saying “Back where I come from, we call that an a*s whooping”

While the sparring, elevated training, Quail shakes, and Mayweather’s manicure and pedicure were all very entertaining… It’s Marquez’s post workout routine that will have the Internet a buzz…

A hyperbaric chamber several times a week is one thing. But to see Marquez look calmly in the camera, talking about the vitamins it provides, and his reasoning for drinking it, definitely pushed dinner back a bit for me personally… The “it” I’m referring to?

His own urine…

And to think this whole time, I thought Tequila tasted bad.
