He holds a whole host of incredible boxing records, one of which is that he knocked off 16 different world champions consecutively, including the likes of Manny Pacquiao, Ricky Hatton, Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Oscar de La Hoya.

The best of the best have failed to lay a glove on Mayweather, with his defensive skills and movement just unparalleled.

"100% focused, I think I'd beat Floyd," Spence 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."
