Tyron Woodley has revealed the start date for Floyd Mayweather’s MMA training.
Whether this training actually leads to a pro-MMA fight remains to be seen, but it’s going to be something interesting to follow in the coming months. This has been an ongoing story all year long.
Mayweather has been teasing for months now that he will make the transition from the world of boxing to the land of MMA.
He recently went on record by saying that he plans to submit the paperwork to get an MMA license, which will likely be in Nevada.
With Mayweather teasing a jump to MMA from the boxing world, there are many who believe that the opponent for Mayweather would be his former rival Conor McGregor.
Mayweather has gone on record by stating that this would serve as his retirement fight, which would leave him with a perfect 50-0 pro-boxing record.
If this fight does happen then, it wouldn’t impact his boxing record but rather his MMA record.
The UFC welterweight champion is a strong believer in the boxing legend and has gone on record in the past by stating in interviews that he is willing to train Mayweather.
Woodley has recently given an update on when Mayweather would start his training and decided to share the news with the world through the power of social media.
“I just talked to Floyd. He was in Singapore…somewhere else,” Woodley said during an Instagram Live session earlier this week (transcribed by MMA News). “I just talked to him a couple of days ago. So when he get back in town next week, me and him are going to start training.”
