Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a member of the Mayweather boxing family. His father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., is a former welterweight contender and is currently working as a professional boxing trainer. One of his uncles, Jeff Mayweather, is a former IBO super featherweight champion. Another uncle, former two-division world champion Roger Mayweather, is Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s current trainer.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. was given the nickname "Pretty Boy" by his amateur teammates because his face never had cuts or bruises after fights - a result of the defensive techniques that his father and uncle had taught him. In his orthodox defensive stance, Floyd Mayweather Jr. - much like James Toney - often utilizes the shoulder roll. The shoulder roll is an old-school boxing technique in which the right hand is held normally or slightly higher than normal, the left hand is down around the midsection, and the lead shoulder is raised high on the cheek in order to cover the chin and block punches. The right hand (from orthodox stance) is used as it normally would be to block punches coming from the other side, such as left hooks. From this stance, Floyd Mayweather Jr. blocks, slips, and deflects most of his opponents' punches, even when cornered, by twisting left and right to the rhythm of their punches.
