World boxing champion Floyd Mayweather is coming off a night to remember, as he picked Canelo Alvarez apart and added millions of dollars to his bank account.
Mayweather, who has already started his Mayweather Promotions and promotes several boxers, is looking to venture into the MMA game.
“I want to promote MMA fighters,” said Mayweather, during an interview with FightHype.com. “We are looking to promote MMA fighters. I think I can take it to the next level.”
Mayweather scored a guaranteed purse of over $41 million for his win vs. Alvarez, and that was before the pay-per-view totals came in. “Money” has even competed in pro wrestling on “Wrestlemania” previously.
As for where he wants to take his MMA fighters to, Mayweather said he has no issues with UFC president Dana White, adding, “(he’s) a cool guy. I’ve been knowing Dana before he got involved with MMA.”
