Floyd Mayweather has confirmed plans for him to work with Anthony Joshua “soon”.
‘Money’, who is also scheduled to fight YouTuber Logan Paul in an exhibition bout later in 2021, last fought professionally in a TKO win over Conor McGregor back in 2017. Ever since then he’s focused his attention on other ventures including coaching and promoting.
His friendship with Joshua has been well-documented and in an interview for the Disruptive Entrepreneur podcast, Mayweather noted that he’s expecting to meet up with AJ in the near future.
“I look forward to working with Anthony Joshua real soon. We communicate all the time. We talk all the time,” Mayweather said.
“As I say, me and Anthony Joshua we talk on the regular. So I look forward to working with Anthony Joshua.”
Floyd went on to give an inconclusive prediction for Joshua’s rumoured superfight against Tyson Fury.
Just what kind of “work” he’s actually referring to remains to be seen. Could it be training with AJ? Or it could it be from a promotional aspect? Only time will tell.
Few people on this planet understand the boxing game better than Mayweather and even fewer understand what it takes to get the W – whether that’s from a performance or financial aspect.
Whatever happens, there’s no doubting that a meeting with Fury is Joshua’s toughest challenge to date. Pundits and fans alike are split on how things will pan out, though Fury’s much-talked about tricky style of fighting makes the bout that bit more fascinating.
