Bascome talks boxing with Mayweather

  • Las Vegas-based boxer Nikki Bascome

Nikki Bascome has made another appearance on the Mayweather Boxing Channel on YouTube after being interviewed by his new trainer, Jeff Mayweather.

Bascome was asked by Mayweather, the uncle of Floyd — the undefeated multiple-weight world champion, to predict the winner of a potential showdown between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr.

Crawford, a former lightweight and light-welterweight champion, was impressive in his ninth-round knockout win over Australian Jeff Horn at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas last weekend.

It was Crawford’s debut in the welterweight division as he took a world title belt in his third weight class.

Spence, the IBF welterweight champion, is also undefeated and faces Mexican Carlos Ocampo at the Dallas Cowboys’ training centre, the Star, in Frisco, Texas, tomorrow night.

To watch Bascome’s views on the possible match-up, go to 5min 28sec on the attached YouTube video, filmed at the fabled Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas.

Bascome is hoping to return to the ring for the first time with Mayweather in his corner next month.
