Former four division world champion Adrien Broner would love the opportunity to trade punches with his former mentor, former five division champion Floyd Mayweather.

Broner, at one point, was tabbed as the second coming of Mayweather.

The two boxers were very close friends, but several years ago they seemed to grow apart - with Broner calling Mayweather out to a sanctioned fight.

Mayweather retired from the sport back in 2017, after stopping UFC star Conor McGregor in a cross-sport boxing match.

Broner is still actively fighting, with a ring return scheduled to take place next month against Ivan Redkach.

While retired, Mayweather has actively been taking part in exhibition fights. Last year, Mayweather entered the ring three times - and he plans to have another exhibition on a date in February in the UK.

“A bout is planned in the UK for 2023. In February we’re looking forward to coming here and putting on an exhibition for the fans in the UK," Mayweather told The Telegraph.

"I’ve never had a chance to come over here and fight when I was actively boxing as a professional. So hopefully in February I’ll come over and do an exhibition if it’s possible.”

Broner believes the two of them could generate a lot of money if they agreed to an in-ring clash. He feels that a showdown could bank each of them at least $100 million.

“These last couple of exhibitions that Floyd has been doing, he’s been getting threes, fours, fives, eights. He say, ‘I got 10 million, 20 million.’ OK, cool. If that’s what he say, cool," Broner told the Round Da Way podcast.

"But if me and him do an exhibition, automatically off the top, you got to give him 100 million, and you’ve got to give me 100 million."
