Floyd Mayweather Explains How Conor McGregor Avoided ‘Damage’ in Their Bout

0

It has been almost one month since Floyd Mayweather Jr. stopped Conor McGregor in the tenth round of their money-spinning bout in Las Vegas

Mayweather has been a constant presence on social media since the conclusion of the “Money Fight”, displaying the opulent fruits of his labor in that bout.

“Money” has also made a few TV appearances, even gracing The Steve Harvey Show with his presence in what was the first media obligation following the much-publicized fight. While showing no disdain towards the Irishman, Mayweather has preferred to discuss his retirement and plans for such.

In a recent appearance, the 40-year-old living legend discussed how he was grateful that the fight was stopped rather than seeing his opponent knocked out as a result of his punches:

“It’s two names in combat sports. It’s two names. Mayweather and McGregor. It’s two names…

He has a career. He still has a career. He’s still young. [Conor McGregor being knocked out would have been] very, very damaging. We have to think about these fighters.”
