Mayweather Says Fight Against McGregor About Race

Floyd Mayweather Vs Conor McGregor Prediction

Floyd Mayweather Vs Conor McGregor Prediction

A 12-time world champion in five weight classes, the 40-year-old Mayweather retired undefeated in September 2015 as one of the greatest to ever step in the ring, buoyed by box office success that saw him shatter almost all of the revenue records in the sport's history.

He's a lot younger, so youth is on his side.

"Just throwing up the yearly tune, and for the month that's in it, thought I'd do one on Conor McGregor, and the fight coming up against Mayweather". And I'm in my 40s.

When asked whether the McGregor fight can be compared to the 1982 heavyweight championship match between Larry Holmes and Gerry Cooney, which featured a "white versus black" narrative, Floyd said, "it's no different".

None of that is untrue. Betsafe branding will appear on McGregor's shorts for the upcoming Mayweather fight, and a variety of exciting activations will bring Betsafe customers closer to the UFC star over the coming months. I checked with the previous executive director, Hall-of-Famer Marc Ratner, and our program officer, who has been here for 30 years. I owe the public for the Pacquiao fight since they wasn't pleased with the Pacquiao fight. "I lost a step".

The retired boxer has now come out to say that McGregor's arrogance is holding him back from progressing as a boxer. It's obvious I'm slipping a little bit to even let a fighter like that go the distance with me. "I have to go to him", Mayweather told Smith, per ESPN.com. "I never known a man to make hundreds of millions that's losing", he said.

See the rest of Mayweather's interview above. McGregor then responded that he was all for it, and now, the wheels seem to be in motion.

Mayweather is not only one of the great boxers in history.

Mayweather is right not to underestimate McGregor.

Still, most of the boxing world is convinced Mayweather will win without any trouble. Both Mayweather Jr. and McGregor have gone on social media to state their case for the lighter gloves. IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence, who has also sparred with Mayweather, said the same thing.

Malignaggi quit the camp after he felt he was set up by McGregor when photographs showing him sprawled on the canvas were leaked online.
