Undefeated pound-for-pound fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr has confirmed that his All Access reality television series is staged.
The 37-year-old, who is the executive producer of the Showtime series, was ordered to appear before a five-person panel at the Nevada State Athletic Commission about some of the scenes in the sportsman's build-up to his rematch with Marcos Maidana.
Specific scenes in the series showed a 31-minute round of sparring without a break, while another filmed marijuana being smoked by a group of women at Mayweather's Las Vegas home.
"It wasn't real marijuana," the Daily Mail quotes Mayweather as saying. "It's all about entertainment.
"It's a new generation, a young generation. We believe in going outside boxing and doing something different. Because we did something different we got better pay-per-views this time around."
