Undefeated pugilist legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. caused a stir in the mixed martial arts world when he began hinting to an interest in making a run within the octagon. Since then, Mayweather has revealed that he wishes to eventually obtain a license to compete in the sport.
Beyond that, Mayweather has recruited none other than UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley to help him begin training for a possible run inside the octagon. Of course, this all stemmed from Mayweather’s highly anticipated match up against UFC superstar Conor McGregor from 2017.
The two threw down inside the squared circle, with Mayweather ultimately earning a TKO over the Irish native. While Mayweather returned to retirement shortly after, the legendary boxer now wants to try his hands in the sport of MMA.
Mayweather claims he may be ready for a fight as soon as in six to eight months. Speaking to TMZ Sports, former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz revealed his thoughts on Mayweather’s prediction.
“I would say that if Floyd Mayweather needs six to eight months to prepare for his first MMA fight and he wants to fight one of the best in the world, I could make that with one arm and fight him.” Cruz said. “And that is just the way it is, because he only has two tools. He doesn’t have the other eight.”
