Back in May 2015, Floyd Mayweather easily cruised to a decision victory over Manny Pacquiao in a very uneventful fight. Given the hype surrounding the bout, fans were upset.
Though he’s known for his defense-first fighting style, Floyd is promising his fight with UFC star Conor McGregor later this month will be much more exciting.
In an interview with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith this week, Mayweather surprisingly revealed that he plans to take the fight to McGregor. “This can’t be a defensive fight. I got to go to him,” he said to a shocked Stephen A. “I gotta do to him. I have to go to him. I gotta do what I gotta do.”
When asked why, Mayweather replied: “I owe the public. Since they wasn’t pleaesed with the Pacquiao fight, they gonna be pleased with this fight right here.”
From there, Stephen A. posed the question: What if? What if Conor McGregor lands a knockout shot and Mayweather loses. “I never known a man to make hundreds of millions that’s losing,” he said. “I’m gonna walk out that ring with my head high. I’m gonna walk out happy. Losing is never on my mind, I just say, ‘Things can happen.’ ”
Wow! So, if Mayweather sticks to this claim, it could make for one interesting fight. Who you got when Mayweather takes on McGregor in Las Vegas on August 26th?
