(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Mike Tyson has claimed that Floyd Mayweather can be the best trainer alive if he has the required desire.
Earlier this month Mayweather revealed his desire to follow in the footsteps of his late uncle Roger and become a trainer.
Tyson says that it’s rare for a boxer to become a trainer, but has backed Mayweather to become a success.
According to Tyson: ‘Mostly, the guy that’s the great trainer is not the great fighter and that’s why he becomes the great trainer.
‘I give Floyd a good chance because Floyd’s a gym rat, that’s all he does.’
‘You see him in the club for one week but he’s in the gym every day for 25 years. Even when he goes out and party, he’s back in the gym the next day. He does it in his sleep, this is what he do.
‘He has a good chance of doing it because he stays in shape.’
Mayweather is one of the greatest boxers ever having won 15 major world titles, while he was also undefeated across 50 fights in his career.
