In his journey to qualify for the 1996 Olympic Games, Mayweather faced Augie Sanchez and initially lost their first fight. However, he managed to win the subsequent two rematches in a best-of-three tournament, securing his spot at the Olympics.

In May 1995, Mayweather competed in the 8th World Championships in Berlin. He defeated Romanian boxer Marian Leondraliu but was eliminated in the second round by Noureddine Medjehoud from Algeria, who eventually became the runner-up world champion.

In 1996, during the Olympic Games in Atlanta, Floyd Mayweather competed in the featherweight division and came in third place, earning a bronze medal. He managed to win matches against fighters from Kazakhstan, Armenia, and Cuba, named Bakhtiyar Tilenov, Artur Grigoryan, and Lorenzo Aragón, respectively. Unfortunately, he narrowly lost a match to Serafim Todorov in the semifinals, which led to him receiving the bronze medal.

Professional Career

In October 1996, he had his first pro fight. He won 13 out of his first 17 fights, beating some tough opponents like Louie Leija, Hector Arroyo, Miguel Melo, Gustavo Fabian Cuello, and Tony Pep.

In November 2003, he defended his title against Phillip N’dou and then moved up to the light welterweight division.

In April 2006, he faced Zab Judah for the IBF welterweight title. The fight had some controversies, including Mayweather touching the ring floor after a punch from Judah and a low blow. Mayweather won by unanimous decision after the fight resumed.

In November 2006, he defeated Carlos Baldomir by unanimous decision for the WBC welterweight title. He cited a hand injury from that fight as the reason for his inactivity.

However, Mayweather was later stripped of his WBO welterweight title because he didn’t pay a contract fee and held titles in multiple weight classes.
