Floyd Mayweather indicates his next fight will be in MMA

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather Jr seems to be making it pretty clear that there is a lot more than just talk behind the possibility of him stepping into the octagon.

Mayweather was interviewed by Showtime’s Jim Gray on Saturday night during the boxing show headlined by Erislandy Lara and Jarrett Hurd. In his interview, Mayweather talked heavily about what’s in store for him, and he indicated he will fight in MMA.

“Is it possible that I come back? Yes, but if I do comeback, it has to be in the octagon,” Mayweather said.

Then Mayweather didn’t equivocate about whether he would fight in MMA.

“When I do go to the octagon, I look forward to going to 145 (pounds),” he said.

Note how Mayweather said “when” and not “if”.

Gray noticed that and pointed it out. Mayweather also said he was confident he would get the amount of money he wants for the fight.

“Only if the money is right. The money will always be right. Of course the numbers is going to be crazy.”

There has been plenty of talk about Mayweather stepping into the octagon and fighting in the UFC. Mayweather’s father has said that Floyd Jr is training for MMA. As for whom he would fight, well Dana White seemed to hint at it last week.
