Photo caption: Floyd Mayweather Sr., trainer of Ricky Hatton, received an unexpected gift today at the IBA Gym in Las Vegas, where Hatton is preparing for his May 2 showdown against Manny Pacquiao. Top Rank press agent Lee Samuels hand-delivered a fancy box from rival trainer Freddie Roach. The box, topped with a bow and a “Second Place” ribbon, contained a bottle of vitamins (“The Undisputed Weight Loss Formula!” by BioJestic, endorsed by Roach) and a T-shirt with a web link by the “Undisputed Weight Loss Champion” that was meant to aid Mayweather’s fighter in reaching the 140-pound goal for the May 2 showdown. Mayweather, however, simply borrowed a Sharpie from a nearby photographer and scrawled, “Too Late” on the T-shirt (actually, it was “To Late,” but was soon corrected), pointing to Hatton’s six-pack of abs.
