Floyd Mayweather is likely to stay retired following his boxing match with Conor McGregor due to a back injury. And it’s easy to see why his back would hurt considering Mawyeather carried McGregor to the final moments of their match. At least, that’s the story according to the undefeated boxer.
McGregor started off the contest looking as if he belonged in the same ring as the boxing great. He landed some solid shots and perhaps stole some of the early rounds on some people’s scorecards. As the momentum seemed to be firmyl in McGregor’s corner, “Money” Mawyeather appeared unfazed between rounds. Judging from his claims in a new video from FightHype.com, we know why Mayweather didn’t appear unsettled by McGregor’s offense.
“I’m gonna tell you all the truth,” Mayweather said. “You all know I carried McGregor. You know I made it look good for y’all.”
Outside of boasting that he carried the UFC champion to the ninth round, Mayweather also took a shot at Oscar De La Hoya for being interested in a boxing match with McGregor after “The Golden Boy” was so against Mayweather vs. McGregor. Mayweather has reiterated multiple times that he’s retired from boxing but he also said the same before stepping back into the ring against McGregor. UFC President Dana White is unsure if McGregor will fight again but could we see Mayweather and McGregor work their way into a rematch?
