FLOYD MAYWEATHER has sensationally claimed Conor McGregor has the edge over him going into their mega-fight. "Which way do you wanna go?" The former boxing champion recently did an interview Stephen A. Smith of ESPN, and during the interview, he explained why McGregor has some advantages for the upcoming fight. Then Oscar De La Hoya said I am not good for boxing but I was good enough for you to fight me to get your biggest pay day? I'm not the same fighter I was five years ago. But he said he owes it to boxing fans to be more aggressive in this fight against McGregor.
"He's a lot younger, "the 40-year-old told ESPN. So, if you look at everything on paper, it leans toward Conor McGregor". According to Mayweather, it's all about McGregor's youth, height and reach. I've been off a couple of years, and I'm in my 40s.
SBG Charlestown's Owen Roddy has released the first in his long-awaited series of looks into Conor McGregor's ongoing fight-camp ahead of his showdown with Floyd Mayweather later this month.
Mayweather, who isn't known for his deference, is still heavily favored to defeat McGregor and improve to 50-0 in his career.
"I'm not what I used to be". A fighter like Andre Berto isn't even supposed to go the distance with Floyd Mayweather.
It's conceivable that McGregor, fighting against possibly the greatest defensive boxer of all time, could fail to land any significant blows on the American when they meet in Las Vegas.
Bear in mind, we're only a few weeks removed from the massive press tour "Money" Mayweather and McGregor did in Los Angeles, Toronto, Brooklyn and London, during which Mayweather made no bones about McGregor having no shot.
