Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather is hungry for his next victory—in the kitchen.

Mayweather, who has won 10 world boxing titles during his career, says he wants to open Las Vegas eatery with "Masterchef’s" Gordon Ramsay at the helm.

"I want to be the best at everything I do. If I open a restaurant I have got to have the best chef. I am going to be speaking with Gordon Ramsay about becoming my business partner,” Mayweather told the Mirror U.K.

Ramsey operates 25 restaurants internationally and already owns three Sin City eateries in three different casinos. He is planning a third Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips for the The Linq hotel later this year.  

Ramsay has had his financial ups and downs.  This week, a British judge ruled Ramsay personally liable for the $1 million annual rent on the hip London gastropub York & Albany. The chef charges that his father-in-law forged his signature on a document  making Ramsay personal guarantor for the rent.  And his business, Kavalake Holdings, continues to have financial difficulties.

Mayweather probably has the funds to bankroll a new dining endeavor but the British chef has yet to comment on whether he plans to partner with boxing great.
