'The Truth', who holds the IBF and WBC welterweight world titles, said he'd be the man to inflict a first professional defeat on 'Money's incredible record.

Mayweather has now weighed in on his American compatriot's bold claim by saying he's "proud" of the 30-year-old.

"I'm proud of him, he's supposed to believe in his skills, he's supposed to believe in his talent. I want all these fighters to believe if they were facing Floyd Mayweather they would win," the former pound-for-pound king told Fight Hype.

Spence Jr hasn't fought since his unification victory over Shawn Porter in September 2019.

But he made headlines when he went on record saying he'd beat Mayweather in a prime-for-prime fight.

"100% focused, I think I'd beat Floyd," he told Showtime Boxing.

"He's mentally tough. I'd cut him up, and use my jab, throw combinations and work the body and work the head.

"A lot of people work the head and then work the body. And then they go to the head, but you can't hit them in the head.

"So I work the body and then work the head and break them down physically because I know I can work them down mentally.

"He's one of those tough fighters like Shawn Porter. You're not going to break him down mentally. You can break him down physically, but mentally he's always going to be there. I would just break him down physically."
