I heard talks of Floyd earlier this year wanting to fight a MMA fight stating he could beat a MMA fighter (sigh...please bro). UFC fighter Din Thomas even called Floyd out during one of the Ultimate Fight Nights on Spike saying "He's he motherfucker to fight".
So because of the relationship Floyd made with Mark Cuban on Dancing With The Stars (how nice...) both have had meetings about business ventures and one that was mentioned was a possible fight in the MMA world for "Money May".
Why he would legitimately fight a trained MMA fighter kills me, but just gives me more reason to think he's ducking Cotto.
