The former UFC welterweight champion had some training sessions with the boxing legend before becoming a former Disney star boxer.

The 39-year-old said of his training with Mani: “When I worked with Floyd. [Mayweather]He was very vocal.
“There was nothing wrong with that. And that’s what makes it great.
“We do it a lot in the MMA, but it doesn’t always transfer power.
“It doesn’t always change to accuracy.
“It gave me the basis for how he beat everyone.”
