Now that Gervonta Davis’ title fight against Liam Walsh is in the books, Floyd Mayweather can turn his attentions elsewhere.
In fact, he wasted very little time in bringing up UFC’s Conor McGregor after president Dana White revealed a contract had been signed, and Money refused to bring up the subject during a press conference in London.
However, not much has stopped him since as he’s remained in the limelight throughout the week.

Before claiming that he’s 90% sure that the Notorious will be his next opponent – should he come out of retirement for one more fight – fans were highly critical of the 49-0 American after an interview saw him refusing to answer questions about Britain’s Anthony Joshua potentially carrying the sport of boxing; much like he did.
Instead, he opted to talk up fighters under the Mayweather banner.

Now, he has a new target on his mind when speaking to Fight Hype as Gennady Golovkin was brought up, somebody many believe would have troubled Mayweather had they fought but as you’d expect, he didn’t see it that way.
The Kazakh knockout artist is now preparing to battle one of Mayweather’s victims when he takes on Saul Alvarez in September, and told Fight Hype that a fight against Triple G would not only be easy, but he’d school him even at his age.
He said: “I seen Kell Brook fight Triple G and you guys was crazy about Triple G, talking – ‘Oh, Triple G was such an unbelievable fighter.’
“He’s okay, I mean, straight up and down no special effects. I mean, even at the age of 40, but I’m not looking forward to fighting Triple G but…that’d be easy.”
When asked if he’d school him, he added: “Oh, of course, you know that. What’s understood ain’t really got to be talked about.
“I can’t, I can’t, I can’t go up to middleweight, I never was a 154 pounder and like I said before, when the history books is written, you know, when you look at the records, hate it or love it, they will say Floyd Mayweather was a winner.
“And Badou Jack was a winner, Gervonta Tank Davis was a winner, and all I do is – I help guys’ careers and I help guys become winners, that’s my job. I want to help these guys grow. I did it all, there’s nothing else I can do in the sport of boxing.”
Mayweather is never one to shy away from controversy, and you can bet his latest claims will have fans talking about who’d leave the ring the victory; if they had ever fought.
