Mayweather says McGregor has edge on paper

Posted August 11, 2017

That's what the boxer wants the world to believe, anyway.

"No different", Mayweather said. He's mild-mannered and even humble, discussing a fight that could go either way.

"He's a lot younger". When you look at the two on paper, when you look at myself and you look at Conor McGregor on paper, he's taller, has longer reach, he's a bigger man from top to bottom. I haven't experienced this in over three years on the job. And I'm in my 40s.

When Conor McGregor made comments that were found offensive to African Americans during the Mayweather-McGregor media tour, Floyd Mayweather wasn't about to just sweep it under the rug.

The 40-year-old remains very confident that Mayweather will surpass Rocky Marciano and secure his 50th career victory.

The undefeated legend hasn't stepped in the ring since taking a win over Andre Berto in 2015.

Since the fight is at 154lbs, it is against NAC regulations to allow 8oz gloves.

Yet following a four-city worldwide media tour last month in which Mayweather spent the majority of time discrediting McGregor's chances, focusing largely on the MMA star's three submission defeats, Mayweather changed his tune this week.

Fast-forward two years later and the fight is now official and the size of its scope is apparent. "It's obvious I slipped somewhere". I'm not what I used to be'.

In a statement submitted to the hearing, Sergeant Helen Parkinson, said: "Not only will viewers be exposed to a high adrenaline atmosphere, they will also be more likely to have already had alcoholic drinks leading up to the fight. We're not", Ellerbe told reporters at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on July 13.

The second episode was both revealing and controversial. What happens? Any damn thing can happen in a fight.

The fight is also being sold at $99.95 HD/$89.95 SD on U.S. pay-per-view.

The betting odds for McGregor continue to improve, which means the public is placing more and more money on him.

It seems unlikely that the fight will be finished off inside the first round. Mayweather was a -3000 favorite. He fought Manny Pacquiao in a fight that drew 4.6 million PPV buys. The contracted weight for the Mayweather, McGregor bout is 154 pounds.

Pub bosses have stood down in their bid to open until 7am to show a boxing match.

In a sit-down with Stephen A. Smith yesterday afternoon, he recalled some of those remarks and said he's dedicating his upcoming fight to "all the black around the world". If he attacks too strong, he may find himself on the wrong end of a Mayweather counter attack just like Ricky Hatton found out!

As you surely know, Malignaggi has been dominating the headlines, since he announced he was leaving McGregor's training camp. "The chairman and commissioners would make the determination with the health and safety of the fighters being the number-one priority".

"He doesn't deserve 50-0 because he's not fighting a fighter".
