FORMER lightweight world champion Mickey Bey has praised Floyd Mayweather and his father for the effect they have had on his career.

Bey, who edged out Miguel Vazquez over 12 dull rounds in 2014 for the IBF title, vacated his belt without defending it, but will challenge new champion Rances Barthelemy on June 3.

Bey, an Ohio native who fights out of the Mayweather gym in Las Vegas, feels privileged to work with the former pound-for-pound king and his father.
