Despite his impressive performance, Floyd Mayweather recently revealed that he was actually not in the best shape for that fight. Speaking with Revolt TV, he explained just how lightly he took this fight.
”You know, for the Conor McGregor fight, I didn’t really train,”Mayweather said. “All I did was push-ups and sit-ups. That’s all I did, push-ups and sit-ups. Box a few times, hit the bag a few times. ‘Cos actually, training camp was in different places. I would do training camp in Vegas a few days. Sometimes I wouldn’t go to the gym for a week.”
Floyd Mayweatehr explained that while he took the fight seriously, he was more interested in giving fans an exciting fight. Moreover, he says that he wanted to leave the door open for a possible rematch. Although this is something that both parties have hinted at over the years, the chances of a different outcome are not great, considering this information.
