Floyd Mayweather can become a great coach, says boxing legend Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson has said that Floyd Mayweather has what it takes to become a world-class boxing coach.

According to a report in TMZ, the former heavyweight champion said that if Mayweather wants to be the best trainer alive, he will be the best trainer. “I give Floyd a good chance because Floyd's a gym rat, that's all he does,” Tyson added.

He said Mayweather is always in shape and could be ready for a fight at any time, and that discipline is what separates him from everyone else.

RIP Roger “BLACK MAMBA” Mayweather

A post shared by Floyd Mayweather (@floydmayweather) on

Mayweather's decision to be a coach seems to have come after the passing away of his former trainer and uncle Roger Mayweather last month at the age of 58.

Mayweather shared a long emotional post where he said his uncle’s death has inspired him to help those around him.

Referring to the social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, he wrote, "In a time where we must distance ourselves from others, it has allowed me to reflect on how I want to make a difference in people's lives and help them achieve their goals."

Mayweather said the quarantine period has allowed him to see the importance of staying united and helping others grow.

Meanwhile, in a separate interview with the rapper T.I on his YouTube channel, Tyson had revealed that he has been training as he is preparing for a return to the ring to "box some exhibitions and get in shape," reported Insider.

This is my first day working with my 14yr old nephew @slugboi.chris who has absolutely NO boxing experience at all, and this is my second time doing mitt work. The first time was with my oldest son @kingkoraun which you may have seen I recently posted. As many of you know, I've had incredible trainers which included my dad and uncle. Due to the recent passing of my Uncle Roger, I’ve felt inspired to help those around me the same way they have been there for me throughout my boxing career. In a time where we must distance ourselves from others, it has allowed me to reflect on how I want to make a difference in people lives and help them achieve their goals. A true trainer wants the best out of their fighter and pushes them to the best of their abilities. I am new to helping people train as I’ve always been on the other side of the mitts. A fighter could be impressive at mitt work but it doesn’t make him a great fighter. A trainer could be impressive on the mitts but it doesn’t make him a great trainer. It has become a goal of mine to help others reach the best versions of themselves and walk with it in confidence. I want to leave an impression on those around me and allow them to see their potential. This quarantine period has allowed me to see the importance of unity and helping others grow. I want to do my part on this Earth and allow people to see the potential in themselves so that they can share it with the world. I am new at training and so far I've been working with people with no boxing experience, therefore we are growing together. But I promise you, I will be one of the best trainers in the world. Inspire and be inspired... 🎥 @tmtbside7
