Floyd Mayweather continues training career as he guides 2016 Olympian Richardson Hitchins ahead of Logan Paul fight

FLOYD MAYWEATHER is continuing his transition into coaching as he was captured taking 2016 Olympian Richardson Hitchins on the pads.

Mayweatether was inspired to become a trainer after the death of his uncle and former cornerman Roger in March.

The retired legend, 43, has been lending masterclasses to proteges Gervonta Davis, 26, and Devin Haney, 22, in his Las Vegas gym recently.

Now 12-0 super-lightweight Hitchins – who represented Haiti in the Rio Olympic Games – is the latest prospect under the guidance of Mayweather.

And the former five-weight champion was so impressed with what he saw, he signed the 23-year-old to his promotional stable.

Mayweather's latest acquisition comes as he prepares to return to the ring.

In an unprecedented move, he faces YouTuber Logan Paul in a 'special exhibition fight' in February 2021.

Despite Mayweather's farcical skill and experience disparity, Paul, 25, is armed with a FOUR STONE and six inch height advantage.

And while appearing to focus on the next big thing, Mayweather leave no stone unturned to avoid what would be an unthinkable and disastrous defeat.

Solomon Engel, Founder and CEO of Fanmio, who are putting on the pay-per-view spectacle, told SunSport: "I think Floyd is going to have fun with it but he's taking it very seriously. 

"Floyd trains extensively and I don't think he's going to go into this fight and not be prepared. He's very excited for the fight.

"He sees some big opportunities here, and I don't want to speak for him but I think we all feel this could be a very historical fight and a number of different levels."
