Spence said on the‘All The Smoke’ Podcast:“100% focused, I think I’d beat Floyd.

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

“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.”

Many expected Mayweather to fire back at his former sparring partner, however the retired 50-0 legend instead gave a classy reply.

“I’m proud of him,” Mayweather toldFightHype,” 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.”
