Floyd Mayweather is currently negotiating a return to combat sports. The man who dubbed himself ‘The Best Ever’ to step inside the squared circle, claims training preparations are underway to see the undefeated multi-weight champion make his bow in the octagon.
It is no secret that Mayweather used a young and hungry Errol Spence Jr as his primary sparring partner following his stint in incarceration.
Floyd has previously said that Errol Spence gave him exactly what he needed in sparring. Floyd even went as far as to say that the current IBF world welterweight champion ‘pushed him to his limits.’
Many believe that ‘Canelo’ vs Golovkin was the one single matchup that was the most intriguing in the current climate of boxing. Mayweather is of a different opinion.
Scanning the horizon for potential challengers to his former sparring partner, Mayweather has spoken glowingly of Terence Crawford, in a previous interview with FightHype, Mayweather acknowledged the former undisputed jr-welterweight champion could ‘fight his ass off’.
@ErrolSpenceJr let's make that basketball bet 😁💲💲💲and when ever we fight will see how you gone out box me,walk me down and who's smarter. Don't let the size fool you.

‘TBE’ claims that the matchup in the pipeline between Crawford and Spence Jr is in his opinion the biggest fight in boxing.
Crawford and his team have already gone on record and claimed that they will be looking to take on the champions at 147 lbs. Crawford already went on to claim that he views the unified WBC/WBA champion Keith Thurman as a more daunting task.
Mayweather, however, scoffed at those claims and says Spence – Crawford is undeniably the biggest fight in boxing.
“Honestly speaking, I think soon the biggest fight that’s going to be in boxing is Terence Crawford and Errol Spence,” Mayweather told Fighthype.com.
“That’s going to be a huge fight I think in boxing.”
“In the future [it’s going to be pay-per-view worthy], in the future [it will be pay-per-view] but not right now.”
“I would pay to see it,” Mayweather told Fighthype.com.
Bet we can set that game up right after our fights https://t.co/9el5TGLXAY
