Henri mayfield junior welterweight champion undefeated. Defensive belt coming up a little over a week is he's going to take on Raymond Serrano when he joins us here on the program let's Begin with training -- training -- for it to prepare for this everything -- -- well I'm actually to the point where I'm. Mean everything down now and went down this didn't you know on pairing the com four star you know it's interesting he's Monty deciding to train all over an Andre Ward's camp. And that's really a hotbed for boxing. In that area as it is and you know what it's. Mr. Wharton and mr. rob king has been there for a long time and he's different places but. That's where -- at George Foreman. You know well I've been like in the 1980s united because there when they had seven -- torch forward to working out strode up their short former. He's had John Tate the former Olympic got in there working out he's had -- league champions and they are not reasons went up and so it's a great place to go it's a great. Atmosphere to train in. And yeah it's good to be over there because people will watch with a military doing over the years that that. You gotta get into today's he gets weird phone calls to get another full cohesive again it ultimately was working at that fact it was a it was an -- at the time it was -- at the time he was -- probably but it wouldn't work it out they Williams. Right he was in -- and we got a Chinese restaurant yeah. That's right yeah lets get back to -- pilots get back to Korea let's talk about on virtually honor and working with him what does he do for you as a fighter. Only doesn't his -- -- a great trainer just voted trainer of the year and you know us over a whole lot of fighters that bounced it to all of the trainers and in the world and you know he's ethic great trainer he's they've been able to provide -- a camp setting for me -- that some for the most part that's been the that's -- for me. -- with Tom have -- bottled energy -- And all there is that what it is because there's another area of training -- -- some homework and you and I want to make sure get a right hypoxia. Training and I think. Yet that's the up up popsicle and they -- it is hypoxia turn of this type popsicle. It's actually. It's. It's that machine that I emanates. High altitude training so I'm as it is obviously the people know if you've been down in any type come out of town when you're. Thousands of feet up your oxygen levels away lower. And you train harder so twenty minutes add up to about our -- so I'm actually -- that by the time and get out with that twelve pars around twelve. And I was training at mile avarice yeah I -- there. That's -- -- as I could mess around -- is about 21000 feet who introduced you industry. Tom actually Victor -- that the packages to destroying. And you know he did studies and did his thing with that is on that his studies and that's it it did this sciences and figured out that is definitely a way to go the aptly. So the idea behind this is to keep your endurance up for the entirety of the fights that. -- be an eighth round you feel the same agent in the second round that are supposed to work. IDF for the most part I mean. I hope I mean it would be great if it was that easy -- -- -- actually you do feel better you know you're red blood cells you have more oxygen going to grab those cells which turned it. Helps you to through your muscles and it's prepared for the continuous rounds that you may be fighting. I want to get back to something you mentioned it's Victor Conte -- a lot of people watching the -- here that name and immediately controversy here not probable get rates. I'll what is his influence on you when did you have to think long and. Hard before you went to work with. PF for sure around the world that has influence on me it's -- -- to being -- he's done he's there not talked long farm I think anytime you have. It's usable just my condition or whatever and actually questioned in. Know that you have that other question he's. Add depth we had to think a long hard and -- think with mom talked to my wife and you know we discussed a few things. But you know a lot of people. You know go through things in their life and if by the creator didn't have -- mercy on ourselves that -- we all be you know and I do believe the second chances than. You know he's proven -- that he's done now he's working a lot of the -- anti some doping agency and now he's he's backing them and he's he's doing good net. Aspect of life. Is Victor Conte doing enough to clear his name so that when he is involved and finally -- that we don't have to ask that question about it or is always going to be here. Well I think in some people's lives he always will be but I think he's doing what he has to do. You can't do much more than you used to you -- you're behind -- you're you're involved with clean athletes. Unless something happens again I think eventually you know people say okay you know what he's figured out he's always been a Smart guy. Having had time to outsmart himself and now having the sand apparently cute story. Aren't fight coming up with the arraignments Serrano you win that fight you say you wanna do something back here what is -- you wanna do for the people back here. Well -- -- to the people here when I'll win that fight may eighteenth. It definitely flat out here look at I can -- grounds that it senatorial.
