Boxing GOAT Floyd Mayweather wants to sign Ex-UFC champion Francis Ngannou: “He can make some noise in the heavyweight division”

Former world champion Floyd Mayweather is unarguably one of the greatest boxers of all time. With an undefeated record of 50-0 and big wins over Manny Pacquiao, Shane Mosley, Canelo Alvarez and several others, the American boxer has proven his mettle in the sport.

Interestingly, despite retiring from the sport in 2017, Money Mayweather has tremendous star power and makes a lot of noise whenever he steps inside the ring for his exhibition bouts. However, now that he has retired from the sport, Floyd has shifted his focus on his own promotion.

The 46-year-old American boxer has guided stars like Gervonta Davis, Rolando Romero and many others. However, now that Tank has left Mayweather promotions, Money Mayweather is looking to sign new stars and talents under his promotion.
