During this phone interview with Fight Hype, Floyd Mayweather shares his thoughts on what he thinks fighters can expect as boxing tries to re-open its schedule, particularly what it’ll likely mean regarding the amount of money they can earn.
Floyd on if we can expect ‘business as usual’ once boxing returns:
“Well, from what I’m told, there’s not gonna be an audience. So, I mean, it’s gonna be crazy as far as with the money. A lot of fighters are gonna wanna go up in there, they gonna want what they been getting. But, you know, when there’s no audience, how can we do that? I mean, that’s a lot of the money. And also television, of course that’s a lot of money but also, like I said, the arenas and the stadiums filling up — that’s a lot of cash flow right there...
“So as far as all these young fighters — I’m just being honest — I think if a fighter is looking for a manager, you gotta go to Al Haymon. If Al Haymon is not a fighter’s manager, they in the wrong sport.”
