Mayweather Interested In Becoming A Trainer?

One of the most gifted athletes in all of boxing, Floyd Mayweather proved time and time again that his skills are second to none. Years of hard work resulted in a 50-0 record and the status of a true icon within the sport. How can the former four-division lineal champion give back to the sport?

Perhaps by training the next generation.

Recently, “Money” Mayweather lost his uncle, Roger Mayweather, following a battle with diabetes. Roger trained Floyd for many years, and was considered one of the main reasons for his success. The loss was just a few weeks after the mother of his children died. During a time of isolation during the coronavirus, Floyd reflected on what he has and what he wants to give.

Floyd took to social media to express a desire to help other boxers be the best version of themselves. He posted the following message onto Instagram:

“As many of you know, I’ve had incredible trainers which included my dad and uncle. Due to the recent passing of my Uncle Roger, I’ve felt inspired to help those around me the same way they have been there for me throughout my boxing career. In a time where we must distance ourselves from others, it has allowed me to reflect on how I want to make a difference in people lives and help them achieve their goals. A true trainer wants the best out of their fighter and pushes them to the best of their abilities. I am new to helping people train as I’ve always been on the other side of the mitts.

“It has become a goal of mine to help others reach the best versions of themselves and walk with it in confidence. I want to leave an impression on those around me and allow them to see their potential. This quarantine period has allowed me to see the importance of unity and helping others grow. I want to do my part on this Earth and allow people to see the potential in themselves so that they can share it with the world. I am new at training and so far I’ve been working with people with no boxing experience, therefore we are growing together. But I promise you, I will be one of the best trainers in the world.”

This is my first day working with my 14yr old nephew @slugboi.chris who has absolutely NO boxing experience at all, and this is my second time doing mitt work. The first time was with my oldest son @kingkoraun which you may have seen I recently posted. As many of you know, I've had incredible trainers which included my dad and uncle.

This comes after Floyd has been sparring with his son. The above video features his nephew.

Mayweather is currently the mentor to Gervonta Davis, the WBA Super-Featherweight Champion. One of the only things he hasn’t done with “Tank” Davis is spar with him. When it is all said and done Mayweather could end up being his trainer.

With today’s generation of fighters hungrier than ever before, Floyd is looking to instill his wisdom on a few up-and-comers.
