Holloway Roasts Mayweather’s MMA Claims As ‘PR stunt’ With Tyron Woodley

Undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been hinting to making a possible run inside the octagon. The retired pugilist earned a TKO over UFC superstar Conor McGregor inside the squared circle back in 2017, creating an interest among fight fans in seeing a rematch take place under the UFC.

Since then, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has revealed that he will be training Mayweather in matters of mixed martial arts in order to prepare the retired boxer for a possible match up. With that in mind, UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway believes the entire thing may simply be a stunt.

Speaking on the latest edition of The MMA Hour, Holloway let his thoughts on the matter be known.

“In boxing, he’s greatest. There’s no hate towards him. He finished smart, he made a lot of money, he changed the sport in a lot of ways, and he got there using his brains and being smart … and not being humiliated.

“You guys really believe this guy is going to take an MMA fight, at however old he is right now, against a young guy that’s tough who people consider one of the best in the sport? It just blows my mind, man.

“If people believe that kind of stuff, it’s wild. I really don’t know what to say.”

“I mean, I love Woodley. Woodley’s the man. He’s a great dude, but I swear he talks about everything. He’s talking about everything. Whatever you can talk about, he talks about it. That guy is always on TMZ or something, so he wants to be talked about all of the time, that’s it. Woodley, you are the man, brother, but I think it’s a PR stunt.

“How can you not think it’s not a PR stunt? I don’t know. This guy is always — every time I see on Twitter something retweeting about TMZ, it’s Tyron Woodley talking about it. So it’s like, gosh, is this guy a champion or is he a TMZ reporter? What is going on, my friend?”
