The Nevada State Athletic Commission ordered pound-for-pound king and licensed promoter Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Thursday to appear before the five-person panel at its meeting Tuesday to answer questions about unsafe training conditions at his Las Vegas gym.The commission is concerned about scenes that were broadcast during the second episode of the Showtime "All Access" series that aired in advance of Mayweather's rematch against Marcos Maidana last Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

During the episode -- part of a promotional vehicle for the pay-per-view -- footage aired of amateur boxer Sharif Rahman, one of former heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman's sons, taking a serious beating from amateur Donovan Cameron while Mayweather watched what was supposed to be a sparring session. Upset that his brother had taken such a vicious beating, Hasim Rahman Jr., Sharif's older brother, challenged Cameron to get into the ring with him. While members of the gym lined up wagers, they fought for 31 consecutive minutes until Cameron could not go on and Rahman was declared the winner. Mayweather was present, cheering wildly.

During an interview during the episode to discuss what he calls "the dog house," Mayweather said of the intense sessions, "The dog house -- the rules are you fight till whoever quits." Mayweather later added, smiling, "Guys fight to the death. It's not right but it's dog house rules."

If Floyd is making them fight till one quits, thats just pure sadistic. His gym license should be revoked.

Honestly, why does Mayweather call his Gym the Doghouse.  There is only one Doghouse.... It's Doghouse Boxing.  I invented the term. It's registered, Inc.

I am actually strongly considering that.  If he wants to use the term, he should buy this website.... stop buying cars and buy the Doghouse.

I told him, there is only one Doghouse Boxing and it's not The Mayweather Boxing Club.  Explained we have been registered and online since 1998. If he like the name DOGHOUSE... then talk to me, we can work out a deal.  I'd sell it to him.
