Floyd Mayweather reportedly plans to help Anthony Joshua prepare for the undisputed unified champion fight against Tyson Fury.
Mayweather watched from the ringside as Joshua knocked out Kubrat Pulev to retain his world heavyweight titles last December.
He was heard offering tactical advice during the fight and visited the champion’s dressing room afterwards.
Joshua and Fury finally signed their proposed undisputed mega fight worth about £200million and Mayweather has revealed he will team up with the Anglo-Nigerian boxing champion.
“I look forward to working with Joshua real soon, we talk all the time,” he told the Disruptive Entrepreneur podcast .
“It’s a very interesting fight. Anthony Joshua has a lot of experience and Tyson Fury as well has a lot of experience but with Anthony Joshua losing a fight [to Andy Ruiz Jr], it helped him become stronger.
”I met Tyson Fury on a few occasions; he’s great guy and very interesting. After the fight I like to see him sing… I haven’t seen him fight a lot of times.
“I’ve seen him fight twice, against Deontay Wilder, but it’s a very intriguing match-up. You can never say what’s going to happen in the sport of boxing. Both guys are great competitors.”
On Monday, promoter Eddie Hearn announced Joshua and Fury have signed a deal for two bouts.
