British fighter Liam Harrison will not play around if he gets the opportunity to fight undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Speaking to The MMA Superfan, “Hitman” shared that he was approached by the handlers of “Money” for a possible boxing showdown. He told them that he was up for it and made a promise to bring the heat if plans pushed through.
Liam Harrison said:
“Obviously he’s not gonna be challenging like the top-level boxers of the minute because he’s not a pro boxer anymore. He’s retired, he’s fought in exhibitions, but I think that he saw that I got a big following. The manager, when I spoke to Floyd’s manager, he said ‘Look you look aggressive, will you take the fight to Floyd?’ I said ‘yeah of course. I’m not here to f*cking play around. I’ll take it to him.”
