Mike Tyson Gives Honest Verdict On Whether Floyd Mayweather Will Succeed As A Boxing Trainer
Boxing legend Mike Tyson has backed Floyd Mayweather to be a successful trainer due to his unyielding commitment to working in the gym.
Mayweather, 43, retired undefeated after his lucrative mega-crossover fight with UFC superstar Conor McGregor in 2017.
And the future Hall of Famer now plans to pass on his incredible boxing knowledge to a new generation of fighters.
Speaking to TMZ, Tyson branded Mayweather a "gym rat" and argued he is "in the gym every day for 25 years."
The 53-year-old ex-boxing superstar explained: "Mostly, the guy that's the great trainer is not the great fighter and that's why he becomes the great trainer.
"I give Floyd a good chance because Floyd's a gym rat, that's all he does.
"You see him in the club for one week but he's in the gym every day for 25 years.

"Even when he goes out and party, he's back in the gym the next day. He does it in his sleep, this is what he [does]."
'Iron' Mike also added that Mayweather's "lifestyle is predictable to a long duration athletic range."
Floyd revealed that he drew inspiration from his legendary uncle Roger Mayweather, who passed away in March, as part of his decision to become a trainer.
"Due to the recent passing of my Uncle Roger, I've felt inspired to help those around me the same way they have been there for me throughout my boxing career," 'Money' wrote on Instagram earlier this month.
"In a time where we must distance ourselves from others, it has allowed me to reflect on how I want to make a difference in people lives and help them achieve their goals."
