Wednesday, April 1
Today was my first proper day training over here - which was no joke, believe me.
I went for a run in the morning around a local park, where I think I might be spending plenty more time over the next few weeks.
We then went down to the IBA gym which is great. Its a private facility and in easy distance of our apartment.
I did a work out with Floyd, who was delighted to be back on solid ground, and I loved it.

We spent Tuesday adjusting to the time difference and just getting ourselves settled in.
We have a chef called Rick Merez working for us over here. He visits the apartments and prepares all our food for us.
It's so important to have the right food inside you when it's time to fight, and I have used Rick for every training camp we've had in Vegas since the Jose Luis Castillo fight. I've got to say here and now, he is very good
I also did some running and a bit of light training today, just to completely shake off the jetlag.
