The boxing legend Floyd (50-0 boxing) claimed that he is glad this fight did not end on clean knockout and unconscious note. He didn’t want to impact his bright career. UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor played really good then expected inside the octagon against Floyd Mayweather.

“He has a career. You know, he still has a career. He’s still young,” Mayweather said. … (It could’ve been) very damaging. We have to think about these fighters. Even, like, my uncle Roger. Right now, I just got a call just before I came here. He keeps walking off, wandering off. No one can find him. He ends up in a hospital. So, brain damage – it happens. It happens.”

Former champion Floy claimed that he barely train for Conor Mcgregor fight.

“OK, hold on. It’s a catch 22,” Mayweather said. “If I blew him out in the first round, they would have something to say. If we let the fight go on a little longer than expect, they’re going to have something to say. So it’s like, damned if I do, damned if I don’t. If I let it go the distance, they’re going to say something.
“Once again, we’re praising him. We’re not praising me. We’re praising him. Because I’m 40 years old, retired for two years. He’s 28; he’s active. I’m inactive. He’s taller; he’s bigger. Hey, may not be stronger. He has a longer reach. He’s taller. He’s bigger. He’s younger. Youth is on his side. I’m just saying, everything on paper links on him. For me to come and be off, and really only train totally, probably three weeks .. and (I was) out every night partying.”

Floyd Mayweather said in his post-fight interview that was his final boxing match and he is retired now. While Conor McGregor said in his post-fight interview, he would like to try another boxing match.
