Undefeated pugilist legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been hinting to a possible octagon debut. With that in mind, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has come forward to reveal that he is now set to train Mayweather in mixed martial arts.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. pulled himself out of retirement back in 2017 to face off against UFC superstar Conor McGregor inside the squared circle. The two fighters threw down on Aug. 26, with “Money” Mayweather ultimately earning a TKO victory over his opponent.
While Mayweather quickly slipped back into retirement with a perfect boxing record of 50-0, the pugilist has since been hinting to possibly making a run under the banner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
Speaking on TMZ Sport’s The Hollywood Beatdown, Tyron Woodley revealed that he is now training Mayweather in mixed martial arts.
“We started chatting about training and MMA.” Woodley said. “We decided, ‘hey man, let’s connect. Let’s hook up in Vegas and do some training.’ I’m getting him ready for MMA.”
The UFC champion went on to reveal that he believes Mayweather could maybe even take McGregor inside the octagon. Check out Woodley’s full thoughts in the video below.
