Floyd Mayweather posts video of two ‘future world champions’

Published Add your comment

Floyd Mayweather, it appears, is on the lookout for the next boxing superstar.

The WBC welterweight champ has posted a short video on Instagram of two young boys, who Mayweather describes - tongue-in-cheek, we presume - as “two future world champions,” battling it out at his gym.

Mayweather, 37, watched on as the two young lads fearlessly competed with many others watching around the ring.

The pound-for-pound king wrote: “Watching these two future world champions bring back many childhood memories. This fuels me to keep paving the way for the next generation”.

Whether the two lads in question go on to become future world champions obviously remains to be seen, but it’s interesting that Mayweather is taking such a keen interest. Perhaps he will look to coach youngster once he finally hangs up his gloves?

Mayweather, however, it not expected to quite for a few more years. At the moment he is busy preparing for his May 3 showdown with Argentina’s Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, while he has also told British boxer Amir Khan that he is keen to set a future date for their fight.

Every boxing fan, meanwhile, still hopes that the potential super-fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will take place before either of them retires.
