Floyd Mayweather’s grandson appears to be a chip off the old block.
‘Money’ is the biggest star in a family of boxers that includes his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., and uncle Roger Mayweather who sadly passed away in 2020.
Now, another Mayweather seems destined for big things in boxing, and it’s not Koraun who has previously trained under his boxing legend father.
On Friday, the retired five-weight world champion shared a seriously cute video of his first grandchild shadowboxing on a kitchen counter as his mother coached him.
KJ is just two years old but already seems to have a grasp on the boxing basics and is earning ‘just like his grandpa’ praise from those around him.
Fans were clearly impressed by what they saw as the post on Mayweather’s Instagram page gained almost 600,000 likes in less than 24 hours.
Meanwhile, a social media account set up for KJ quickly garnered 81,000 followers and seems to be the place to be if you want to follow the next Mayweather boxing journey.
Since retiring from professional boxing after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor and improving his perfect record to 50-0 in 2017, Mayweather has been keeping busy with exhibition bouts.
The 46-year-old has faced seven low-level opponents which have included MMA fighters, reality TV stars, and YouTubers – making a ton of money in the process.
Mayweather is showing no signs of slowing down, but with a growing family of wannabe boxers, he may finally follow his father and uncle into coaching.
‘The Best Ever’ previously showed an interest in becoming a trainer and even revealed his plan is to become one of the greatest to ever do it.
“Due to the recent passing of my Uncle Roger, I’ve felt inspired to help those around me the same way they have been there for me throughout my boxing career,” Mayweather wrote on social media in 2020.
“It has become a goal of mine to help others reach the best versions of themselves and walk with it in confidence.
“I want to do my part on this Earth and allow people to see the potential in themselves so that they can share it with the world.
“I am new at training and so far, I’ve been working with people with no boxing experience, therefore we are growing together.
“But I promise you, I will be one of the best trainers in the world. Inspire and be inspired.”
