Both Floyd Mayweather and his protégé Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis are confident about their chances of competing in the UFC.
Recently there has been speculation suggesting that “Money” could be set to cross-over to ultimate fighting, in which Mayweather’s previous opponent Conor McGregor is under contract.
Early last week, Mayweather fuelled the fire by insisting that he would soon start training to compete in the UFC, however nothing concrete was confirmed.
“Money” has teased with the possibility of squaring off against Conor McGregor in a re-match of last year’s boxing bout which the former boxing champion went on to win through T.K.O in the 10th round.
The American boxing legend has suggested that he is set to soon start training with UFC welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley leading to the possibility of Mayeweather vs. McGregor 2.
“We’re going to start working out real soon,” Mayweather told TMZ. “Even if it takes six to eight months, whatever it takes, we want to make sure everything is done correctly.
“I can wrestle. My wrestling game is not that bad. One a scale from one to 10, I would say it’s probably a seven. My hand game, on a scale of one to 10, is 100. The kicking game … that’s probably a four. We have to tweak a few things to take things to the next level.”
Davis who co-headlined the Mayweather vs McGregor bout in August last year has been engaging in a war of words with UFC stars over social media and has suggested that he too would be open to crossing over.
“If the opportunity’s up for grabs then I’m definitely willing to fight any one of them guys near my weight class,” Davis told TMZ Sports. “Dana White, I’m waiting on your call, baby.”
