Floyd Mayweather, 44, called out by 18-0 Bellator MMA star AJ McKee who aims cheeky dig at Logan and Jake Paul

AJ MCKEE is the latest MMA star who wants a piece of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.

The Californian called out the 44-year-old veteran after his convincing demolition of rival Patricio Pitbull to win the Bellator featherweight title.

After scooping the prize, which netted him a whopping £719,166, Mckee revealed his dream to go toe-to-toe with Mayweather in the boxing ring.

Mckee, who boasts an impressive unbeaten record of 18-0 in MMA, thinks fighting Mayweather, who's 50-0 in boxing, would be the best of the two fighting worlds coming together.

Mckee told Sky Sports that he'd have a lot of respect for Mayweather if he accepted his challenge.

He said: "I would have a lot of respect for him, straight up.

"I'm the best at my sport. He's the best at his sport.

"I would just enjoy sharing that moment with him."

But the 26-year-old couldn't resist referencing Floyd's age and said that going up against him would be like fighting his dad, who he's protective over.

He quipped: "He's like my dad! I call my dad 'my antique'. If you go hard with my antique in the gym? I will [mess] you up.

"Be careful because if you hurt my antique we've got a problem."


During his rant Mckee also took aim at YouTube stars Jake and Logan Paul, with the latter having fought Mayweather in an exhibition bout in June.

Logan went the full eight rounds with the self-proclaimed best boxer of all-time but Mckee dismissed him and Jake as fame-hunters.

Mckee added: "These younger guys who aren't in the sport? They have something to prove.

"I don't have anything to prove in boxing against Floyd.

"It's just me wanting to be acknowledged as the best in my sport and sharing a moment with a great from another sport.


"Hopefully it happens one day."

The last MMA fighter to step into Mayweather's domain was Conor McGregor who he beat with ease in the 10th round during his retirement bout in 2017.

The pair have traded digs ever since and a £1billion rematch has even been touted to settle their differences.
