  • a man who needs no introduction.

  • Be one and only Floyd money Mayweather Lakers down to the socks right now I see you all those championships, Floyd, I know you're liking it.

  • Thank you so much for being with us.

  • I know it's early for you, but talk to me about Saturday night.

  • Why is this a must watch?

  • All right, this is a must watch because you have one guy that wants to prove to the world that he's able to jump weight classes and be up there with the likes of a sugar Ray Leonard like a Floyd Mayweather like a Roy Jones and so many others that have jumped different weight classes and tested their skills.

  • And I'm talking about Leo Santa Cruz, relentless tough competitors.

  • And then we have another kid from Baltimore, um, like a baby Mike Tyson, but wants the wants to show the world that he's a paper view star in your body.

  • Take Davis 23 wins 22 knockouts.

  • And this is a must see because, I mean, both guys are relentless.

  • One guy, power puncher, heavy hitter.

  • Another guy would never quit and come straight ahead with the world of win.

  • So when you got two guys like this in both, uh, with that killer attitude, it is gonna be a great fight.

  • Flood.

  • I remember interviewing you for the first time in 1998 on Friday night.

  • Fights on ESPN two and I don't know, you might have been 20 or 22.

  • I was only, like, maybe 25 at the time.

  • And And I thought you were going to be a great fighter in all that, But there was some question as to the way they were gonna market you at the time and how you would become a pay per view attraction.

  • And you had different ideas than your promoter at the time Top rank.

  • And you proved yourself right the way you marketed yourself.

  • And you became the number one pay per view attraction.

  • When you look at Tank.

  • When you looked at him originally, what made you think this guy I wanna I wanna be with this guy in his career.

  • I want a mentor.

  • Um, I want to guide his career because I believe he could be a pay per view star.

  • What about Tank made you believe that?

  • I believed in him because he was He came to my gym, actually, when I first met him, I don't I don't really know his exact age, but he was A young kid came to me one of the autograph, and I told him within a few years I said, This is to the future world champion.

  • And if I'm not mistaking within four years, he was world champion when I first signed this phone, but this kid got the will to win.

  • I mean, the attitude.

  • I mean, he's means hungry, and he's dedicated.

  • And he's a heavy hitter.

  • You know, I've never seen the guy, you know, uh, you know, with the Wilder were like Tank and say, Well, that he that I see a tank is what I've seen it myself When I looked in the mirror, so I mean, this kid got dynamite in his hands.

  • What else can I say?

  • He's got dynamite in his hands.

  • Florida ain't gonna take that away from him.

  • I like Davante a lot, but I ain't gonna lie.

  • I want to see him against someone other than Leo Santa Cruz.

  • I expect him to handle his business thoroughly this Saturday night.

  • I'm looking forward to it.

  • I will be watching that fight.

  • But I just for sort of female Lopez going up against Lomachenko and I want to see J.

  • Vontae Davis fight those kind of guys.

  • What do you say to that?

  • How soon can we expect to see that?

  • I mean, when we say those kind of guys, I mean, meaning that we can We're never gonna We're never going to take anything away from my fighter.

  • My fighter didn't have to go to the Olympics.

  • And as of right now, my fighting, his own pay per view.

  • And he's fighting on pay per view for a reason.

  • I mean, Tank has been out there every time, please the crowd and prove to the world that he deserves to be on that big stage deployed.

  • There's there's two different things and you wore both hats Very well.

  • Um, you're among the best of all time.

  • You have a case for being the best of all time, certainly in terms of the boxing business and one of the great one of the greatest, your boxers of all time as well.

  • But I think what Stephen A is touching on there is something fans are interested in.

  • So that Z like the competitive aspect Do you feel well?

  • You Do.

  • You feel that because you're saying that.

  • Look, tanks already on paper view.

  • He didn't have to do the same thing everyone else had to dio.

  • Well, you gotta realize this check.

  • When Tank won the won the world title, he'd be the undefeated fighter.

  • He went out there and beat a top, a top guy when he first won the world title, and he wasn't even ranked in the top 10.

  • So we're not going to discredit my champion in my fighter.

  • He's hungry, He's dedicated.

  • And when the time presents itself, it doesn't matter who it is.

  • Take is gonna go out there and do what he has to do now.

  • Leo Santa Cruz is also a fighter that's testing the waters.

  • To be great and test the waters to be great, you have to do the same thing Floyd Mayweather did.

  • I slowly gradually moved up and fought the best guys out there.

  • Yeah, I like Santa Cruz, but he's not Floyd Mayweather, Ted Cruz, a good fighter and not be.

  • Let's be very clear.

  • Nobody's trying to discredit haven't because I haven't taken fight.

  • We know this and the brothers got knocked out power.

  • We see, we see what he can do.

  • What I'm saying is that there are some elite catch.

  • You know, Leo Santa Cruz is not even in the top five in the junior lightweight division.

  • You've got a situation where in the lightweight division, Davante is right up there climbing the charts.

  • And there's a couple of elite fighters that I think that he could take.

  • It would be interesting to see that.

  • I want to know how so, No.

  • So you like to see that now?

  • So now we're based in a fight off just off one fight.

  • I told you guys before.

  • I never took nothing away from Lomachenko.

  • I thought he was solid, but you guys that talk and said all.

  • He's basically better than Mohammed Ali.

  • He's better than Floyd Mayweather.

  • Remember?

  • Never said that the professional ranks.

  • We never said that professional and amateur is two different things.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
