Floyd Mayweather Sr. has expressed his disapproval about the possibility of his son entering the Octagon. Mayweather Sr. even went further and threatened Dana White:
“It better not be MMA,” Floyd Mayweather Sr. said.
“I don’t think he’d take it because I’d go in there and whoop Dana White’s ass! F**k yeah I will. I’d whoop the s**t out of him. Even though Floyd is a grown man, I’d be the grown one that’d take over that. Sure will.”
Floyd Mayweather recently hinted that he will come out of retirement in 2020 for two more matches. Even though further details are not yet known, the boxing superstar shared a photo with Dana White, saying:
“Dana White and I are working together again to bring the world another spectacular event in 2020.”
It still remains unclear whether Mayweather Junior will compete in UFC. A lot of fans would still like to see a second clash with Manny Pacquiao or Canelo Alvarez.
Dana White, himself, has been skeptical in the past of boxing stars switching to MMA.
Most recently, White shared his lack of interest in seeing heavyweight star Tyson Fury make the move from boxing to MMA.
“Tyson Fury has worked hard his whole life to become one of the top four fighters in the world in boxing,” White said. “He’s making good money and everything is going great for him. Why would you even want to come over here and attempt this? I don’t think it ends well for him.”
Still, Dana White would probably be more than happy to work with Mayweather who will undoubtedly bring huge commercial success.
