Just watched episodes 1 & 2 on YouTube, and my reaction is basically the same as those who have posted in this column. But to reiterate:
1) I, too, wish there was a more serious focus to the program -- one that dealt w/the actual training in greater depth (not only showing it more, but discussing it in detail w/the fighters and trainers). I would find that very interesting. As hard as it is to do, I want to give Floyd genuine credit for his superb commitment to all the difficult physical preparation he puts in before his fights. He's tremendous, and I get the feeling almost all of it originates with Floyd himself (not Roger). Despite all his stupidity and craziness, his work ethic is hardcore.
2) Now having given him his propers, I have to confess (and I'm honestly not a person who enjoys being negative) that I find 'Money May' a rather putrid person. I don't find his ceaseless boasting, trash talking, and foul language funny in the least. He has the mentality of a third grader -- an obnoxious and moronic third grader, that is. I have no interest in Floyd the philosopher, but the viewer is treated to bucketfuls of it. But what grates on me the very most, personally, is when (after constant idiotic behavior) he brings God into it (!) -- like we're to believe that he's also some kind of Christian role model. I (as a Christian) find this repellent, and wish he would just be quiet about that. Terrible reppin' -- not so much in this 24/7 series so far, but plenty of other times.
Summary: Mayweather -- wonderful talent paired with a truly impressive training commitment. Sadly, however, I find most other aspects of him as a human being to be about as bad as his physical attributes are good.
As for Cotto, real respect for his toughness in the ring. Outside of it . . . ? Can't recall anything I found particularly interesting. (Later note: Oh, I did see him climb a rope in the 'L' position. Impressive in my weakling book, perhaps not in some of yours, though.)
Apologize if post is too long. Just got to typing, I guess.
