Floyd Mayweather Jnr began his official training camp at his Las Vegas gym on Monday as he prepares to take on Manny Pacquiao in May.

Manny Pacquiao has come out of musical retirement to record a song which he will use during his walkout against Floyd Mayweather when the pair finally meet this summer, according to the Philippines’ GMA News.
