The undefeated boxing great Floyd Mayweather has been a dominant force back in the day. Getting the opportunity to learn from him is a rare affair. It has come to light that was teaching his grandson how to box. The 45-year-old’s daughter, Iyanna ‘Yaya’ Mayweather, gave birth to NBA YoungBoy’s son Kentrell Gaulden Jr. in 2021. Since then, both ‘Yaya’ and YoungBoy have gotten into a lot of legal trouble and found their names in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Despite this, ‘TBE’ has been spending a lot of time with his grandson.
Floyd Mayweather pretends to get hurt
In a recent video that was posted on social media, Mayweather was seen teaching his grandson how to box. In the video, Kentrell Gaulden Jr. is wearing his own headgear and personalized gloves. ‘Money’ tied Gaulden Jr.’s gloves and sat down on the ground to exchange light punches with the toddler.
Floyd Mayweather is set to fight British YouTuber-turned-boxer Deji on 13 November at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai. This is Mayweather’s third exhibition fight of the year. It seems ‘Money’ is not quite familiar with his opponent.
In a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Floyd Mayweather revealed that he does not know who his opponent is:
“I don’t really know Deji, they just called me with the name. My team have done their homework and we said, ‘Why not?’ I’m pretty sure he’s a tough competitor, a tough little guy. We’re gonna have fun, let’s just say that. We’re gonna have fun.”
