TMZ: Floyd Mayweather says he’s DEAD SERIOUS about taking an MMA fight — confirms he’ll start training with Tyron Woodley — and breaks down his wrestling and kicking skills.
Floyd was leaving Katana in L.A. with his TMT crew on Wednesday when he opened up about EVERYTHING … and admits gearing up for the octagon is “probably gonna be a little difficult.”
As we previously reported on “The Hollywood Beatdown,” Mayweather and UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley have agreed to train together … and Floyd thinks he can REALLY elevate his ground game.
Floyd Mayweather will start his MMA training with a bona fide UFC champ — with Tyron Woodley saying he’s spoken with TBE and has agreed to get him ready for his debut in the Octagon.
“I can wrestle,” Floyd says … “My wrestling game is not that bad. On a scale of 1 to 10, it’s probably a 7 and I think we could take it up to like a 9.”
Floyd also breaks down his kicking game — and explains why he scores himself a 4 out out 10.
So, how much MONEY will it take to lock Floyd for an MMA fight, possibly with Conor McGregor?
“It’s all about presenting the right numbers and of course, they gonna present the right numbers and we gonna make it happen.”
Floyd Mayweather Has Legit Wrestling Skills, Say TMT Bodyguards
“Don’t sleep on Floyd Mayweather” when it comes to MMA … because the guy can REALLY wrestle — so says Floyd’s hired muscle.
We spoke with Floyd’s personal private security force — Jizzy Mack and Greg La Rosa — and asked them how their boss is prepping for his MMA debut.
The guys say they haven’t seen Floyd training with UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley yet — but acknowledge “he’s a beast” and would definitely be the man to get Floyd UFC-ready.
But, the most interesting part … both guys claim Floyd has legit ground skills.
“Floyd’s tough all around … he can wrestle.”
These guys spend MOST of their lives right by Floyd’s side — from traveling to the gym — and they would know how Floyd’s been training for his rumored transition into MMA.
As for Tyron, he says he’s spoken with Floyd and agreed to train him — and even spelled out how his training camp would go on “The Hollywood Beatdown.”
