Floyd Mayweather thinks he can turn Francis Ngannou into a star.
Floyd Mayweather wants to sign Francis Ngannou to Mayweather promotions
“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.”
Mayweather believes Ngannou has what it takes to be competitive with some of the best heavyweights in the world. He believes he would do better with his help. Ngannou is not ready to write off MMA altogether and has been talking with some promotions to return to the cage after his one-off boxing endeavor. Fans are still waiting to see what will come of it although he’s expressed that negotiations for his boxing debut are moving forward.
