The greatest defensive fighter of our era and perhaps ever has promised a different kind of fight for this Saturday.
Floyd Mayweather is not known for brutal scraps and toe-to-toe wars but he did imply that we will get something like that this weekend. Conor McGregor has certainly seen his fair share of bloody battles in MMA and there’s one on its way now as well, according to Floyd.
In a media scrum after the final press conference yesterday, Mayweather promised that the judges definitely won’t be needed on August 26th.
“Let’s give the fans what they wanna see. Fans wanna see blood. He said it’s not going to distance, I said it’s not going to distance. It’s obvious we’re gonna come out there from the opening bell and drop bombs,” Mayweather promised.
McGregor’s coach, John Kavanagh, has been very vocal about a knockout victory for ‘The Notorious’. Especially during a recent interview where he mentioned that they have ‘something a little bit different for Mayweather’.
“This fight won’t go to the distance. Remember that. No matter what his coach say. Coach can’t fight for him. It comes down to the two fighters,” commented Mayweather.
Floyd also made a comment about McGregor struggling to make weight for the upcoming fight.
“I’m pretty Conor McGregor is somewhere trying to make weight. I know he’s struggling to make weight but I’m on weight. There’s always a fine if you do anything wrong,” he told.
After the comment, Floyd did say that he believes McGregor will ultimately make the weight for the fight.
