“You know Dana posted a photo with Floyd and Henry jumped on it and I reached out today and I’m like; I said I’m a Muslim healer he smiled you know, listen, I’m sure Dana’s working on something with Floyd and Sakakibara.

“But listen, Henry Cejudo, he has some boxing fights in the past, people don’t know this.”

“If we’re gonna have Jake Paul fighting Ben Askren. Why don’t have two GOATs Henry Cejudo and Floyd Mayweather fight each other?

“I think it makes a lot more sense than having Jake Paul fighting Ben Askren. I’m not saying it’s a bad fight. If Henry’s going to fight Mayweather it should happen, I think people would pay to watch this.”

White and Mayweather are probably planning to do something together. If what they are planning is a Cejudo vs Mayweather fight, it would be a grand spectacle. Fans of combat sports all around the world would love to watch these two legends collide.
