He spoke about this in a recent interview with BetOnline_AG.

“I would love to work with him actually, you know, I would love to work with him, I would love to sign and you know, to Mayweather Promotions. He’s a very skilled guy, he was unbelievable, from the highlights that I was able to see in MMA. I would like to work with him someday, you know, if he wanted to fight one of the top heavyweight guys, he should do it,” he said. “He’s powerful. And with his power and his toughness. He’s able to make some noise in the heavyweight division.”
