Now, the former welterweight kingpin has offered his response and suggested that Le’Veon is just chasing fame. Meanwhile, Le’Veon is also known for his boxing ability, as he has been practicing the art form for many years. He is just 29-year-old and is in his athletic prime, which could make for a compelling fight against ‘The Problem Child.’
