In an interview with the Mayweather Boxing Channel (via MMA Fighting), Floyd Mayweather Sr., the father of undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., said that he thinks his son will eventually fight in the UFC. Here are highlights:

On the chances of Mayweather going to the UFC: “The way I see it, I have to believe that this is where it’s going. The way it looks, I think so. I don’t know what the legacy is because as of now, he has enough money and he’s got enough to live until his life runs out. I don’t even know how to say it because there ain’t no way to say it because everything is done right now. I wouldn’t [advise him to fight in MMA]. As his trainer, no, as his father, no. I want him to have all the money he’s got. The money he’s got, he’s got enough money – look here, it’s crazy money, man. He’s his own man though, that’s one thing about him.”

On if he thinks his son would be successful there: “I’m gonna tell you the truth about it, I think he can win a few fights but I think it’s best to leave it alone. You can do your own thing but you’re in somebody else’s playground now and holes and stuff are in there. You just can’t do that. Don’t get me wrong, I believe he can beat some fighters like the same as he did with the other guy but it ain’t worth it. Anytime you’ve done what he’s done, there ain’t no other way he can go right now but backwards. That’s the only way he can go right now.”
