Floyd Mayweather Jr. will try to improve his boxing record to 50-0 when he takes on Conor McGregor on Saturday in Las Vegas. And with the stakes being sky high for the undefeated champion, it’s only natural that a friend would reach out and ask how he’s handling it.
It just so happens that friend is a five-time Super Bowl champion.
ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio caught up with Mayweather on Wednesday, and “Money” told him that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady recently texted him.
“That’s a close friend of mine, Tom Brady is a very, very close friend,” Mayweather said. “He’s an unbelievable guy with unbelievable talent. He’s a great guy. Actually, Tom Brady texted me yesterday.”
And what did Brady say to one of best fighters of all time?
“We have a cool friendship, he texted me and asked me ‘how’s everything going?'” Mayweather said. “And I texted him back, ‘everything is cool, how you doing? how’s the family?’ And he said, ‘everything is going A-OK.'”
Brady and Mayweather both recently turned 40 years old, and still are at the peak of their powers, so we can see why the two would be close friends.
