Puerto Rican street artist Ozuna received special boxing training from legendary American boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr., according to a video the singer posted on his social media on Saturday.
In the video, Ozuna appears with Mayweather on a ring and in which the former world champion instructs the artist on how to strike various blows, including “jabs” and “one-two” combinations.
“Now I’m going to represent Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic and my Latinos, but in boxing,” Ozuna explained about his purpose of training with Mayweather.
“Thank you Mayweather for believing in my talent,” highlighted the expugil artist, considered by many to be the greatest boxer in history after finishing his undefeated career with 50 wins, no losses.
Ozuna’s intention to meet and train with Mayweather is due to the fact that the artist plans a project to educate youth through former world boxing champions from various countries, one of his representatives told Efe.
Given this, there is the possibility that some legendary Puerto Rican fighters, such as Félix “Tito” Trinidad and Miguel Cotto, will join Ozuna’s proposal.
