Floyd Mayweather, in his role as a promoter, is hoping to see a super middleweight unification fight between WBC titleholder Badou Jack and IBF titleholder James DeGale, speaking about the matchup in his interview with the BBC.
Mayweather promotes Jack (20-1-1, 12 KO), and both Jack and DeGale (22-1, 14 KO) work with Al Haymon, making it a fight that shouldn't be impossible to get done. Perhaps the only thing standing in the way of the fight is sanctioning body politics, or maybe some sort of conspiracy where Haymon doesn't want to do that fight. But Mayweather says it's on his mind:
"[DeGale] talked to me the other day when I was in Los Angeles at the fights. He said he would like to fight Badou Jack. But everything takes time. Eventually it will happen. If he continues to win and Badou continues to win, which I truly believe both will, the ultimate goal is to match those two in a super bout, down the line."
Jack last fought in September, beating George Groves on the Mayweather-Berto undercard, while DeGale was last seen in November, traveling to Montreal to defeat former titleholder Lucian Bute.
