Floyd has been impressive to some degree in every single one of those 49 wins.However, they will count for little if he loses to MMA kingpin Conor McGregor.
To judge the likelihood of a Floyd loss, we have looked over ‘Money Mayweather’s’ last five fights to see what we can learn.
They do say that you should always try to learn from a master, so here is our rundown of Floyd’s last five bouts.
Andre Berto – he hasn’t lost any speed
This fight was only two years ago, yet Floyd still had the speed he needed to close the distance against an attacking opponent. We also learned that Mayweather can’t resist a challenge and Conor McGregor represents an interesting challenge.
Berto did alright for much of this fight, but he just couldn’t lay a meaningful glove on Mayweather. Many people feel that Mcgregor may end up as frustrated.
Many Pacquiao – he won’t play into the fans hands
Mayweather played this one in an intelligent way. He didn’t let it turn into a slugfest, which he may not have won. Instead, he played things his way and took the decision victory.
This man hasn’t got the record he has by being influenced by the audience. This fight may not have been the most entertaining of bouts, but Mayweather got the job done against one of the best boxers ever.
Marcos Maniana 1 and 2 – he is elusive
Floyd Mayweather’s fights against Maniana for the defensive showcase that Mayweather displayed. He ducked, dived, rolled and did everything else you can imagine against the fighter.
After all was said and done, Mayweather’s hand was the one being raised aloft at the end of both bouts. A common theme in most of Mayweather’s later fights is that boxers really do struggle to hit him.
Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez – big hitters don’t worry him
One of the biggest claims from the McGregor supporters is that Mayweather won’t be able to handle his hard left. Canelo is arguably one of the hardest hitters in the sport today and Mayweather got through this bout without much of an issue.
Thus, McGregor fans may have to come up with a new plan for how their hero will get the win.
