Floyd Mayweather Gets Positive Feedback From Mike Tyson
Former Heavyweight Champion of the World, Mike Tyson has something to say about Floyd Mayweather becoming a boxing trainer. Tyson tells TMZ Sports that boxing is Floyd’s life.
As you will recall, Floyd Mayweather announced earlier this month that he wants to be a boxing trainer. This revelation occurred after his uncle, Roger Mayweather passed away last month. Roger was a 2-weight boxing champion who later became Floyd’s coach. Now, Floyd wants to honor him by walking in his shoes. Mayweather also said he is using his knowledge to help the next generation.
TMZ Sports talked with Mike Tyson to discuss Floyd’s wishes. And though Tyson said it was rare for a boxing superstar to successfully transition to training, he also had a few other statements about Floyd’s decision –
“Mostly, the guy that’s the great trainer is not the great fighter and that’s why he becomes the great trainer.”
“I give Floyd a good chance because Floyd’s a gym rat, that’s all he does.”
“You see him in the club for one week but he’s in the gym every day for 25 years. Even when he goes out and party, he’s back in the gym the next day. He does it in his sleep, this is what he do.”
