In preparation for Floyd Mayweather’s next exhibition fight, Money’s trainer states the boxer is training like he is in his prime.

For his latest bout in the Middle East, the boxing legend faced off against his former sparring partner Don Moore. The boxer outclassed his opponent with a notable display, and after the bell, he revealed that he would continue his boxing career.

Coach Gerald Tucker says Mayweather’s training reminds him of how he prepared for his 2012 win over Miguel Cotto.

A clip from a few days before the fight.. @floydmayweather is getting closer and closer to the Floyd of his younger days. The workouts now remind me of around the time he faced Cotto. Can’t wait to see the announcement for the next bout coming up soon. 

Having already fought in three exhibition bouts, he defeated Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa followed by a bout with YouTube star Logan Paul last June. According to the boxing legend, he may have earned up to $100 million for his encounter with Moore in addition to the $65 million he earned from dealing with Paul.

The next opponent for Floyd Mayweather has yet to be determined, but recently retired Amir Khan observed the proceedings from a ringside seat.

Amir Khan might just get the opportunity to share the ring with Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition boxing bout.

Khan was recently interviewed by talkSport and discussed the potential of boxing Mayweather in one of his exhibition bouts. The recently retired boxer said he actually spoke to Mayweather about potentially fighting each other next while recently in Abu Dhabi.

He certainly sounds interested in the possibility, leaving the door open for a potential clash with “money.”

“Look, exhibitions always happen,” Khan said. “I met Floyd the other day in Dubai and there was some excitement there, he was like ‘don’t retire, let’s do something, there’s something we can do’. I was like ‘maybe if it didn’t happen when we were both professional fighters, maybe it can happen as an exhibition’. No-one wins, it’s just a bit of fun to give the fans a bit of entertainment.

“I think now with boxing, it’s totally changed now where a lot of these fights happen, social media guys fight each other, and a new door’s been open. People can just step in after a week of training and have a fight!

“We saw the event today, I think Floyd needs a real challenge. We should do it. 100 per cent guys, let’s make it happen. I’m calling him out. Either hit me up or hit my brother [Tam Khan] up.”

Khan recently called it a career after over 15 years as a professional. His last outing resulted in a sixth-round TKO loss to Kell Brook this past February. He leaves the sport with a record of 34-6, and a former welterweight champion of the world.
