Floyd Mayweather Sr. doesn’t seem happy with the rumors that his son might come out of retirement in 2020 to try his luck in MMA.
The father of the American boxer vowed to whoop UFC president Dana White’s ass if he gets him a fight in the Octagon.
”We usually talk but I ain’t heard nothing from him. It’s a big surprise to me. It better not be MMA. 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 wil”, Mayweather Sr. told Fight Hub TV.
Dana White has been sceptical in the past of boxing stars trying their hand at MMA. Most recently, he shared is disinterest in seeing heavyweight star Tyson Fury 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.”
