Floyd ‘Joy’ Mayweather watched on in London as protege Gervonta Davis ripped through Liam Walsh in just three rounds to retain his super-featherweight title.
Once he’d corrected BT Sport’s Ronald McIntosh that he was not ‘Floyd Mayweather Jr.’ but was ‘Floyd Joy Mayweather’ in between the second and third sessions, it was just a couple of minutes until the fight was over.
In assessing the performance of Davis, McIntosh managed to gain some reaction from the former pound for pound king on recent reports that UFC champion Conor McGregor had agreed his side of a cross-codes deal.
Mayweather and McGregor look set to fight in Las Vegas this September and when prompted by McIntosh, The ‘Money’ man had this to say:
“If me and Conor McGregor happen to make the fight, which I think the fight will happen, I would love this young kid (Davis) to be on the undercard.
“I would also love Badou Jack to be on the undercard, but tonight is Tank’s (Davis’) night, let’s talk about him. He did a tremendous job.
Floyd continued: “I had a great career and my career may not be over. Number 50 may be against Conor McGregor, we’ll just wait and see but tonight is Tank’s night. He went out here and I give him an A+.”
Mayweather has a lot on his plate once he arrives back in the United States as a PPV blockbuster with MMA’s brightest star lies in wait upon his return.
