Floyd Mayweather is already trading shots with Gennady Golovkin … telling TMZ Sports the guy’s just running his mouth for a payday — and he’s way out of his league. Golovkin — who’s knocked out his last 20 opponents — told us Mayweather would be his “dream fight” and is 100% certain he’d win if they ever got in the ring together.
Now, Mayweather’s camp is issuing a response … saying, “Everyone in boxing wants to fight Floyd. It’s the biggest payday they could possibly have.”
“[Golovkin] has never fought a top opponent in his whole career … we’re surprised you guys would even have him on your show to be honest.”
Sounds like fightin’ words.
Triple G — I Would Destroy Floyd Mayweather
Floyd Mayweather has just been called out by the most dangerous boxer in the world … Gennady Golovkin … who says he’s 100% confident he would crush Money … if they ever got in the ring.
Triple G appeared on “TMZ Hollywood Sports” and told us a bout with Mayweather would be his “dream fight” — if Floyd ever agreed to come up in weight and fight the 33-year-old phenom.
There’s more … we also asked Golovkin about fighting Oscar De La Hoya, who recently told us he’d want to get in the ring with Triple G if he ever comes out of retirement.
Long story short … if Oscar’s serious, Golovkin says he’s absolutely ready to rumble.
