Jim Lampley veteran boxing commentator and International Boxing Hall of Fame inductee said, Floyd Mayweather, is “Marvelous Scam Artist.” who threw several rounds to Conor Mcgregor just to earn another lucrative payday.
Back in August Mayweather (50-0 boxing) picked up another win via TKO in the tenth round against UFC lightweight champion McGregor in Las Vegas. It was McGregor’s first pro boxing debut which was considered lucrative blockbuster pay-per-view in sports history.
Jim Lampley who’s been covering the sport for nearly three “decades unleash on Mayweather as a “scam artist” suggested he would not retire after pulling off that stunt is dead wrong against Mcgregor, stacked undefeated boxer a reported $150 million.
“Why should he retire? He created a marvelous scam with this whole thing,” Lampley told TMZ.com. “He allowed Conor to quote ‘win’ three rounds so that the whole global MMA wish community could have something to latch on to. I think there’s a decent chance there’s enough suckers out there Floyd could maybe make another $150 million. Why not? It’s all a setup.”
Lampley suggested rematch with Conor is very likely, as Mayweather recently posted couple training videos on social media.
“Are we having a bet on whether or not Floyd Mayweather wants to make another $150 million? It’s not a bet,” Lampley said. “Why else is he putting out videos of himself working out? Why else did he allow Conor McGregor to ‘win’ three rounds? Why did the whole thing last 10 rounds? It’s all a set up.”
Despite what Jim suggested a rematch two between Mayweather and Mcgregor is a possibility, even Dana White also suggested this fight recently. As well Nate Diaz (19-11 MMA, 14-9 UFC) trilogy fight is backstage and unification bout with newly interim lightweight champ Tony Ferguson could be next for Conor McGregor. Nothing is confirmed yet all these suggestions are still in the air.
