Floyd Mayweather shows off his training talents as he takes pads with Devin Haney who looks sharp in gym workout – The Sun

FLOYD MAYWEATHER put his passion to becoming 'a great trainer' into action with a pad session with world champ Devin Haney.

Since retiring from boxing after beating Conor McGregor to make it 50-0, Mayweather has kept himself in shape in the gym.

It has even led to many speculating that the 43-year-old might fancy lacing up the gloves to extend his unbeaten record as a pro.

But Mayweather has gone on to insist it would take £500MILLION to tempt him back to the sport that made him a legend.

And he has spoken about how he has been inspired to become a top-class coach to follow in the footsteps of his uncle Roger.

He died at the age of 58, and is credited with getting nephew Floyd to the very top of boxing's tree.

WBC lightweight champ Haney shared a training of video of him with Mayweather on Instagram.

But Mayweather might have a tricky decision to take in the future – he also works with WBA king Gervonta Davis who could fight Haney in a unification bout int he future.

Speaking about his move from fighter to trainer, Mayweather previously posted on social media: "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."

Mayweather recently shared footage only holding the pads for his son Kouran and nephew Chris.

He also worked on defence drills with 11-0 lightweight Rolando Romero, 24, who he also promotes.
