Floyd Mayweather was in the middle of an interview at the W hotel in Washington D.C. when he spotted Lorenzo “Truck” Simpson. Simpson is a 15-year-old boxing prodigy. He has a 145-2 record as an amateur and has six National Silver Gloves titles as well.
Mayweather views Simpson as the next big thing and says he could be the next Money Team fighter.
According to TMZ, Mayweather wants to sign Simpson “when he gets a little older” saying that “Everything takes time. We ain’t worry about that. We’ll get there.”
He also issued a statement stating, “[Truck] is a great amateur fighter. His is only 15 right now but I look forward to working with him when he turns 18.”
