Legendary British super middleweight and former world champion Carl Froch is confident in Floyd Mayweather when he takes on Conor McGregor on August 26th. ‘The Cobra’ feels that Mayweather is carrying the boxing world on his shoulders.
“I thoroughly expect Floyd Mayweather to win, but he’d better not let the world of boxing down. I hope he wins it for boxing but this is an amazing event and I can’t wait for it,” told Froch to Sky Sports.
Froch absolutely sure of a Mayweather win after it’s all said and done on August 26th.
“McGregor’s got to land something, a punch, quite hard and hurtful early on to be within any chance but anyone who knows boxing isn’t giving him a chance. This is a Mission: Impossible,” commented the former boxer.
However, he does realise the fact that Mayweather has been out of the game for a while and McGregor is the younger and more active fighter of the two.
“McGregor is 29 against a guy who is 40 – a little bit older than me – and he’s been retired for a couple of years. You really do ‘feel’ you’re retired, you become civilised and soft and you lose that fighting mentality. Floyd has brittle hands, so how is the training camp going to go? I am just looking for some positives for Conor here and Mayweather isn’t the Mayweather we know from two, three, four, five years ago when he was the best of the best,” summarised Froch.
