Floyd Mayweather is considering two fights in 24 hours, former champion’s uncle has revealed.
Mayweather Jr. has earlier announced he’s going to have two fights in 2020 against UFC superstars Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Jeff Mayweather, unbeaten boxer’s uncle has revealed the talks with UFC president Dana White have started as there is a possibility of two mega-fights in several hours.
“Floyd is talking about the possibility of fighting McGregor and Khabib in the same day, which he could easily make happen. There have already been talks with Floyd and Dana White about making a deal.” Jeff Mayweather said (via Daily Mail).
“Floyd is no longer the top of his sport, but he’ll beat both of them. He could beat both of them back to back, one in the day time, one in the night time – it doesn’t matter, they’d have no chance, it’s easy for him.
“Floyd said one in the daytime and one in the night, it’ll be something that’s never been done before. Double pay-per-view, expensive a** buy. He’d knock Conor’s a** out early because if he knows he has a second fight coming, he’s not going to put on a show like last time. He’d beat the s***t out of Conor.
“Floyd is a master of planning these things. He’s the one that always turns nothing into something huge. These things are expected of him. It’s evolution, times change. You’ve got to roll with it, and if you don’t roll, you lose.
“Why would he stay retired when he can fight UFC guys that couldn’t beat him up if he was f*****g 60 years old? At some point he does need to retire, but if he’s gonna be fighting guys who never really boxed, why not carry on? He’s gotten more than these guys could ever learn, so why not take the money?
“I’m sure it’s gonna be hard for him to come back because he has been out of action for a while, but he’s gonna get back into that same old mode – and when he gets into that mode, you pick any UFC fighter in the damn world, they’re not gonna touch him. Simple.” he added.
Earlier in 2017 it took 10 rounds for Floyd to beat Conor McGregor in Las-Vegas.
