Seryoso si Floyd Mayweather, Jr. sa pagtawid sa mixed martial arts mula boksing.
Katunayan, ilang linggo na siyang nagpapakondisyon at nagsasanay para sa posibilidad ng unang laban niya sa MMA ngayong taon.
“I started training already. Not the physical part – endurance, as far as moving around. So far, I’ve started running,” bulalas ng 41-anyos na American undefeated five-division world boxing champion.
Kuwento pa niya, posibleng ngayong taon siya lumaban at puntirya ang weight division ni Conor McGregor ng Ireland, ang MMA superstar na tumawid ng boxing at tinalo niya noong Agosto 2017, na 145-pound division.
“I’m thinking about fighting in the MMA, I’ve thought about it. I started training in Miami. I look forward to fighting probably by the end of the year. We don’t know. Right now it’s a 50-50 (chance), not a hundred percent. But we’ve started training,” aniya.
“I’m going to be working with different guys in the Jiu-jitsu world. My wrestling game, I’m going to be working with guys with the wrestling. My kicking game, I’m going to be working with guys for the kicking game. Before I get in the octagon, I’ve got to be well rounded, all around the board,” pangwakas niya.
