Rumors have been spiraling that Floyd Mayweather is indeed UFC bound, and with Floyd confirming to Forbes Magazine this week that he is in talks for a potential fight in the Octagon, he’s only adding to the speculation.
In his latest interview Floyd stated, “I don’t know. We don’t know if it’s a boxing ring — or maybe an Octagon. We just don’t know. But there’s been talks.”
Of course, the fight everyone wants is Mayweather vs. McGregor II, but a member of the Mayweather family, Jeff Mayweather says they might just whoop CM Punk’s ass first.
“… We might actually whoop [CM Punk’s] ass first.”
“He has a chance because, first of all, he’s way faster than Conor, he’s way more elusive than Conor, and he punches harder than Conor.”
“It’s about no f—king shoulder roll. It’s about Floyd using his legs, being smart. If Floyd gets kicked or elbowed or gets kneed, anything like that, of course, the chances are he’s gonna lose.”
“If Floyd uses his legs – and I’m talking about to f—king dance around (and move), ain’t no f—king running around. This is part of boxing, (and) MMA fighters do it too. But they can’t do it as well as him, and that’s the difference.
“As long as he does that, he gives himself a chance. He gives himself a chance because he keeps it within striking distance. But if Floyd gets taken down, the fight’s gonna be over.”
