(BetOnline News Wire) - Floyd Mayweather's mouth is often running, and he had a lot to say during a recent interview on "The Fight Guys" show.


The Fight Guys, produced by gaming site, sat down with Mayweather for an exclusive one-on-one interview where the GOAT discussed a range of topics pertaining to the boxing world.

One of the most intriguing quotes from the interview comes when Mayweather is asked about former UFC Heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou's interest in transitioning to boxing.

"I would love to work with [Ngannou], I would love to sign him to Mayweather Promotions," Mayweather said. "He's a very skilled guy...unbelievable...and if he wants to fight one of the top heavyweight guys, he should do it."

When asked if Ngannou could beat one of the top heavyweights in the world behind Mayweather training, "Money" responded:

"Absolutely. With his size, strength and power, anything can happen. With his power and his toughness he can make some noise in the heavyweight division."

Mayweather also had some interesting thoughts about the need for total unification among the boxing ranks. One belt to rule them all...if you will.

"I want to have a sit down with the different boxing organizations and tell them we really need to clean the sport of boxing up. And, if we can't clean the sport of boxing up, then I think it is time for us to take boxing to the next level," Mayweather said.

"That means it's time for me to come out with my own belt. My own championship belt that trumps all titles, trumps all belts. It doesn't matter who the champion (is for other organizations) because only one belt's going to count. And it's the belt that I'm going to come out with."

Mayweather and host Mystic Zach discuss myriad other topics, including the top boxing matchups Mayweather would like to see booked (teaser...Crawford vs. Spence was at the top of his list), amateur boxing, pay-per-view piracy, exhibition fights, his next opponent and more.

It's a very candid sit-down with Floyd "Money" Mayweather that you can watch above.

Finally, we leave you with the best advice Mayweather said he received as a young fighter:

"The less you get hit, the longer you can last."
