Boston Celtics’ Isaiah Thomas has been working out with no other than boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather during the NBA offseason.
The NBA season doesn’t start again until October, so NBA players have to keep themselves in shape during the summer months by working out. It can be a tough time, so you have to find the right workout partner to keep you motivated until the opening game of the season.
Celtics’ guard may have the best workout partner of the offseason, the undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather.

Thomas went on a four mile run with the WBA and WBC Welterweight Champion early this morning, 5:45am to be precise.
Whilst Mayweather isn’t exactly the perfect role model, if you’re trying to achieve fitness before the start of the season, there aren’t many men on the planet that could keep up with a Mayweather workout that’s for sure.
Thomas will be hoping for the same kind of success on the court next season that Mayweather has had in the ring this year. Thomas is one of the newest additions to the Celtics, as he joined the team in a trade during last February from the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Marcus Thornton and a 2016 first-round pick.
Last season, the Celtics were knocked out of the playoffs by the Cleveland Cavailers in the first round, losing all four games. Thomas had the highest assists in three of the four games and will hope to continue this in his first full season with the team.
