Floyd Mayweather has turned himself into one of the biggest names in boxing thanks to his flamboyant style and unbeaten record.
Mayweather, who runs his own promotion company, sees the sport of MMA as a future investment for himself and his team, Mayweather Promotions.
“I want to promote MMA fighters,” said Mayweather, during a recent interview with FightHype. “We are looking to promote MMA fighters, so it’s the first time you’re hearing it. Al Haymon is looking to manage MMA fighters.
“Even though Al Haymon hasn’t come on record and said it, but I want Al to manage MMA fighters. I think I can take it to the next level.”
Despite some in boxing attacking the world of MMA, and vice versa, Mayweather has a relationship with UFC president Dana White that could help him succeed in the sport.
“I don’t mind doing business with Dana,” he said. “Dana White’s a cool guy. I’ve been knowing Dana before he got involved with MMA.”
