PROFESSION:

WBC Super Welterweight Boxing Champion

PARTNER:

Karina Smirnoff

BACKGROUND:

Mayweather is the world champion in five different weight classes and the current RING and World Boxing Council Welterweight Champion of the World, with an astounding undefeated record of 38 0, with 24 knockouts. He is universally recognized as pound for pound the best fighter in the world.

His nickname, "Pretty Boy," was given to him by his amateur teammates because his face never had cuts or bruises after fights a result of the brilliant defensive techniques that his father taught him. The name has stuck throughout his boxing career.

He won a bronze medal at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta in the Featherweight division. That was the last time Mayweather ever lost a fight.

He might have rhythm and energy but he has no finesse. He seems like nice enough guy and he's trying but I think tonight was the beginning of the end. He'll be in the bottom 2 again very soon. This was only the third week of the competition and Karina was already choreographing faux humping into the routine, no need for that unless she's grasping already. Ballroom and Latin are sensual enough, you don't need the X-rated factor.
