Sunday marked the one-year anniversary of the highly successful boxing battle between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor in Las Vegas and now, Mayweather has offered to help his former adversary prep for his upcoming fight against opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, October 6, also in Las Vegas.
Mayweather told TMZ Sports he would allow the Irishman to train at his massive gym just west of the strip adding, "I know that UFC got a training facility but we'd like for him to work out at the Mayweather Boxing Club."
Mayweather, 41, who stopped McGregor in the 10th round of their surprisingly competitive match Aug. 26, 2017, praised his last opponent for being a "warrior" who does not "back down from anyone."
Mayweather refused to predict who would triumph at UFC 229, but said McGregor is "not a scared fighter at all, win lose, or draw."
