Floyd Sr. Thinks Mayweather Will Fight In UFC
After Floyd Mayweather’s uncle said that his nephew would jump inside the octagon, now the undefeated boxer’s father, Floyd Mayweather Sr believes his son is up to the task of joining the UFC.
As reported by MMA Fighting, Mayweather Sr. told the Mayweather boxing channel that it looks like it is an inevitability.
“The way I see it, I have to believe that this is where it’s going. The way it looks, I think so.
“I don’t know what the legacy is because as of now, he has enough money and he’s got enough to live until his life runs out. I don’t even know how to say it because there ain’t no way to say it because everything is done right now. I wouldn’t [advise him to fight in MMA]. As his trainer, no, as his father, no. I want him to have all the money he’s got. The money he’s got, he’s got enough money – look here, it’s crazy money, man. He’s his own man though, that’s one thing about him.”
Mayweather Sr. said that he believes his son can bus successful and win a few fights in MMA, and even though he will be there with his son, it may be a bad thing for Mayweathers’ legacy.
“I’m gonna tell you the truth about it, I think he can win a few fights but I think it’s best to leave it alone. You can do your own thing but you’re in somebody else’s playground now and holes and stuff are in there. You just can’t do that. Don’t get me wrong, I believe he can beat some fighters like the same as he did with the other guy but it ain’t worth it. Anytime you’ve done what he’s done, there ain’t no other way he can go right now but backwards. That’s the only way he can go right now.
