Belfast light middleweight Dee Walsh is looking to take his game to the next level when he heads to Las Vegas in the coming weeks.
Walsh - unbeaten so far as a professional - is heading to the American city for a holiday but he is hoping to lay eyes and gloves on boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather.
Walsh - who has his next fight in Belfast on October 17 - already has sparring lined up in Mayweather’s Gym in Las Vegas.
“I was going over to Vegas for a holiday, but I thought that while I’m over there I might as well have a crack at it.
“I’ve seen ‘the Doghouse’ where they just fight until one man stops.
“People would probably think ‘that’s crazy – why would you want to do that?’ but I’d love to test myself like that against some of the best in the world.
“ I made contact with Jeff Mayweather and he said sparring wouldn’t be a problem.
“I’ll go over there on my weight and train and talk things over on the first day and then on the second day I plan on sparring. It’ll be an amazing experience and if I go over on my weight I can’t see why they wouldn’t spar.”
