During an episode footage was shown of former heavyweight champions Hasim Rahman’s son Hasim Rahman Jr. going one on one with amateur boxer Donovan Cameron for 31 consecutive minutes. The fight was stopped when Cameron could no longer continue and conceded.
“The doghouse – the rules are you fight till whoever quits. Guys fight to the death. It’s not right but it’s doghouse rules,” Mayweather said.
The Athletic Commission are not happy with these comments or the conditions under which the fighters were training though.
“Our main concern is the health and safety of the fighters and not just on fight night, but also in sparring and in training,” NSAC chairman Francisco Aguilar told ESPN.com
Concerns were also raised over the rampant drug use in the show, and although Mayweather himself was not partaking, he watched as several friends rolled marijuana joints, and even asked an assistant to go and buy more papers.
There is also the marijuana situation in there, and some commissioners are upset about it,” Aguilar continued. “My priority is the health and safety of the fighters.”
