Floyd Mayweather Jr. begins training for Manny Pacquiao fight

Floyd Mayweather Jr. began training Monday for his highly anticipated bout with Manny Pacquiao, and a couple of famous faces stopped by to see the champ.

Mayweather, it seems, will only be posting most of the pictures of his training for the May 2 fight on the social media app, Shots.

Before he posted any pictures, Mayweather said "HARD WORK & DEDICATION" on his Facebook and Twitter pages.

Mayweather is an investor in the photo-sharing app, Shots, which has millions of users. Mayweather also used Shots to announce the Pacquiao fight.

"All my pictures from training camp are inside Shots. My staff is posting as I train so make sure you have the app," Mayweather said on Facebook and Twitter.

Among the group of people watching him train Monday, actor Nicolas Cage and a person who appeared to be actor Elijah Wood stopped by Mayweather’s Las Vegas gym.
