Floyd Mayweather considering MMA career switch Floyd Mayweather Jr. is seriously considering a new career in the MMA arena, according to ESPN. The sports network claims that Mayweather is working no a deal with HDNet Fights owner Mark Cuban, with whom Floyd Mayweather Jr. has developed a friendship in the recent months, after their participation in the TV show Dancing with the Stars. Mayweather's adviser Leonard Ellerbe has been quoted saying: "It's definitely something he is interested in, and when Floyd makes his move, obviously it's going to be a mega event. We don't have a timetable. Floyd is taking some time off, but Floyd understands what is involved. You have to take time to go out and understand what you're getting involved in, and he's ready to do that. But it's something he's definitely interested in doing. Mark Cuban is a very successful business man and has some very, very successful business ventures that we've discussed. We're looking to do a lot of business with Mark. He's a great guy, and we had a great meeting. Doing an MMA event with him is most definitely something we are looking at, among many things we are looking at doing with Mark Cuban."

 Mark Cuban has confirmed to ESPN that Floyd Mayweather is indeed considering joining MMA through HDNet Fights. Cuban also said that if Mayweather doesn't fight with HDNet Fights, he will likely invest or train MMA fighters.
