Floyd Mayweather gives Conor McGregor a fighting chance

Floyd Mayweather gives Conor McGregor a fighting chance

But Mayweather has admitted that after a couple of years out of the ring - and the age gap between the fighters - McGregor has a slight advantage.

Mr. Money spoke with ESPN recently and he claims that if you look at all of the factors in his August 26th fight with Conor McGregor that Conor is the more unsafe man. And I'm in my 40s. His last knockout came in 2011 against Victor Ortiz, and his past seven fights have gone the distance. Plus what would a loss mean for Floyd Mayweather's legacy? But Mayweather also knows that he has to sell a novelty bout that most observers think won't be particularly close, and when you consider some of the news coming out about possibly lackluster ticket sales ...

The two will finally meet in the ring on August 26 at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena after years of posturing and two months since the fight was announced. "It's obvious I'm slipping a little bit to even let a fighter like that go the distance with me".

"This can't be a defensive fight", Mayweather said.

Falcons, Devonta Freeman agree to terms on a five-year contract extension
I'm so excited for him. "I want to thank (owner) Mr. (Arthur) Blank, Thomas and coach (Dan) Quinn for all of their support". ATLANTA-The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension with running back Devonta Freeman .

Owen Roddy, who, of course, is Conor's longtime striking coach, has made a habit in recent times of chronicling McGregor's fight camps and publishing the resulting videos to the official SBG Charlestown YouTube channel, but this time around, the stature of the event within the context of combat sports history has made this series by far the most anticipated to date. "I have to go to him", Mayweather said of McGregor. "It's obvious I slipped somewhere". Before that, his megafight with Manny Pacquiao was a lackluster decision win for him in May 2015. "Something has taken a toll on my career".

"This can't be a defensive fight", he said. If it goes wrong, the consequences... will destroy him mentally.

"I've got to do what I've got to do", he continued, when asked why he plans to break from his trademark style. They weren't pleased with the Pacquiao fight. They weren't pleased with that.
