While Floyd Mayweather's boxing future could potentially be fixed on Conor McGregor, Mayweather also said he could easily beat Gennady Golovkin.
Speaking to reporters after his protégé Gervonta Davis retained his IBF junior lightweight title against Liam Walsh on May 20, Mayweather didn't think Golovkin was anything special after his 2016 win over current IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook.
"Kell Brook fights Triple G and you guys were crazy about Triple G, talking 'Triple G was such an unbelievable fighter'," Mayweather said. "He's OK. I mean, straight up and down, no special effects. Even at the age of 40, I am not looking forward to fighting Triple G, but that would be easy."
When asked about whether or not the former pound-for-pound king can beat Golovkin, the current unified middleweight world champion, Mayweather said he could easily "school" Golovkin.
"I mean, of course [I would school Golovkin]. You know that," Mayweather said. "I mean what is understood ain't really got to be talked about. Like I said before, when the history books are written, when you look at the records, hate it or love it, they gonna say Floyd Mayweather was a winner."
Mayweather is currently handling Mayweather Promotions and its fighters, including Davis, but could make a return to the boxing ring against McGregor, the current UFC lightweight champion. McGregor had already signed the fight contract, but Mayweather has yet to finalize his part of the deal to make the dream fight official.
