After retiring in 2015, the multi-divisional boxing world champion was “coaxed” out of retirement to face McGregor in Las Vegas due to the attractive financial incentive. Both men are expected to earn over $100 million for the fight.
Mayweather has the perfect 49-0 record and is a five division world champion. He is referred to as the best defensive boxer in history as well as one of the most accurate punches in recorded history.
What the Experts Say
“Floyd will stop him. He’s just too good at boxing for McGregor and McGregor is too inexperienced at boxing. He can’t use his other styles.” – Lennox Lewis
“I feel embarrassed to say this but I’d be very surprised if (McGregor) wins a round.” – Ricky Hatton
“Conor McGregor is going to look really ridiculous boxing [Floyd Mayweather].” – Mike Tyson
The boxing world isn’t giving McGregor a chance against Floyd Mayweather. McGregor is a tough competitor but has never boxed professionally and is unlikely to cause any problems against the best defensive boxer in history. Expect a comfortable victory for Mayweather.
