Floyd Says He Owes The Fans – “This Can’t Be A Defensive Fight”

If we are to believe Floyd Mayweather, it will be a different fight this time around.

He is known for his perfect defensive style and not taking many hits during fights. But against Conor McGregor, we will most likely see the Floyd of old and not the one that we were used to seeing time and time again.

In an interview Stephen A. Smith, Floyd admitted that he owes the fans a different kind of fight. He will go for the knockout and also discussed what happens if he loses to the Irishman.

“This can’t be a defensive fight. I have to go to him [McGregor]. I gotta what I gotta do,” said Mayweather.

Back in 2015 Floyd finally fought Manny Pacquiao but the fight left the majority of the fans very displeased. It’s time to give the public what they want.

“I owe the public for the Pacquiao fight since they were not pleased with the Pacquiao fight. They’re going to be pleased with this fight,” admitted Mayweather.

There is a surprising amount of fans who have picked the Irishman to win. When asked has he thought about the idea of losing to McGregor, Floyd responded with caution.

“When you fight at this level, there’s no loser. I’ve never known a man to make hundreds and hundreds of millions that’s a loser. I’ll walk out that ring with my head high. I’m a fighter. I’m gonna walk out that ring happy. Losing is never in my mind. Things can happen. My mother and children are still gonna love me the same way. I’m still gonna have the same lavish lifestyle. Life will move on,” commented Mayweather.

Mayweather and McGregor are set to collide on August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
