“It was a f*ckup situation”: Floyd Mayweather’s coach discloses under which condition he would ever drop the towel

Despite all the controversy, Floyd Mayweather unquestionably ruled the boxing ring for around 20 years. What did Floyd do to strike a balance between assuring longevity and domination and a career free of injuries, though? Pretty Boy’s former trainer disclosed the circumstances in which he would ever give up on Mayweather.

The fundamental nature of boxing is taking a huge risk inside the ring. A boxer’s career could at any time be in jeopardy with a lethal strike delivered with the perfect force and direction. Nate Jones, Mayweather Jr.’s assistant trainer, recently explained how he was able to keep Floyd safe throughout his pro career.

What did the trainer of Floyd Mayweather say regarding safeguarding Floyd’s career?

“If Floyd got hurt. And I see his life in danger in a situation like that. And one of the guys in the corner want to step up to the plate. I would’ve done it.” said Nate. 

In boxing, the coach is always going to be the person who knows a boxer better than the boxer themselves. Nate has known the five-division champion for his whole professional life because their association dates back to 1996, the same year Floyd made his professional debut. No matter what, The Snake was always in Floyd’s corner to provide necessary assistance.

“It was a f*ckup situation. Of course, I would have accepted the play, stood on the apron, and announced before getting him hurt.” Nate continued. 

After defeating Conor McGregor in 2017 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Floyd ended his 20-year-long professional boxing career. ‘Money’ was still unbeaten after 50 fights, with 27 of those contests ending in knockouts.

Despite his retirement, Pretty Boy maintained a significant connection to the sport as seen by his participation in several exhibition fights for the enjoyment of his passionate fan base. On February 25, Mayweather Jr. defeated Aaron Chalmers in his sixth exhibition match at London’s O2 Arena. This was Money’s debut match in the UK.
