Nine figures? Selling a fight is not a hard thing for this iconic combat sports athlete namely: Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Which also means from Floyd’s latest prediction tell us that “It won’t go the distance. I look forward to ending the fight early. It’s not going the distance.”
‘Money’ Mayweather won’t probably knock McGregor out due to a long-standing problem, said Floyd Mayweather Sr.
Mayweather Sr told the Fox Sports, “I ain’t gonna say a knockout because my son got a hand problem. That’s a true story, he got a hand problem.” He added: “He gonna make Conor McGregor look like a fool. Believe me.” But expect the ending of this fight will be crooked in the decision.
Mayweather’s record features 26 KOs (53 %) out of his 49 wins. His last KO was against Victor Ortiz, which is a very controversial termination against Ortiz, eight fights and six years ago. He wasn’t able to KO consecutively since 2000-01, against Emanuel Augustus and Diego Corrales.
Why? Because of his fight against hand problems for his entire career, that force him to become a defensive type and counter punching exponent who no one has been able to stop.
Mayweather’s former cutman Miguel Diaz revealed that broken hands have been a problem for their family for two generations, having also wrapped the hands of his uncles Roger and Jeff Mayweather and his father, Mayweather Sr.
Diaz told the Daily Intelligencer that Mayweather Jr has all the problems in the world with his hands in 2015, before the Manny Pacquiao fight.
“Their bones did not grow strong. They all have the same hands and the same problems. They didn’t have enough calcium as babies.”
Rafael Garcia, another long-time former cutman of Mayweather, revealed that he used a special, unnamed Mexican medicine on the boxer’s hands. And of course, Mayweather did not even try to stop Pacquiao, embracing an ultra-conservative gameplan that annoyed the millions of fans who paid to watch the super-fight.
