‘I would kill him’
“I don’t look at a man who’s expert in one area as a specialist,” he said. “I look at him as a rookie in ten other areas.
“If you can box, what happens if I grab hold of your legs? If you put me face-to-face with Floyd Mayweather – pound-for-pound boxing’s best – if I fought Floyd, I would kill him in less than thirty seconds.
