Mayweather's huge claim about McGregor fight

'Everybody tried to protest the Mayweather-McGregor fight, right?' Mayweather said, via FightHype. Neither McGregor nor UFC president Dana White has expressed any interest whatsoever in McGregor boxing De La Hoya, who was very vocal in his opposition to McGregor's polarizing boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather Jr. on August 26 in Las Vegas. "I know that. I know I could do it in the first place", McGregor said at a Q&A in Scotland in late September.

Many pundits, particularly in the boxing world, indicated that Mayweather allowed McGregor to win the first three rounds. "You know I made it look good for y'all". He couldn't figure out what I was doing early on.

Mayweather finished the fight via TKO stoppage in the tenth round. "I'ma tell y'all the truth - you know I carried McGregor. I feel with the lessons I learned, if I had another go around, I'd get it".

"My mind wants to do it, my body doesn't let me", De La Hoya said.

Hugh Jackman Passed On Playing James Bond
Jackman said he hasn't looked back since taking a pass on James Bond , adding he "always tried to do different things". Jackman doesn't seem to have any regrets about turning down the Bond role, and he is not the first actor to do so.


De La Hoya's comments came months after he pleaded on video for McGregor to challenge his own fighter, Canelo Alvarez, creating an outcry of hypocrisy against him.

"I still have it in me". But De La Hoya switched gears one more time in November when he announced, at age 44, that he has been secretly training for a comeback against McGregor (a statement he has subsequently walked back). I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever. I'll come back for that fight. De La Hoya hasn't fought since Manny Pacquaio pummeled him into submission in a stunningly one-sided fight De La Hoya was heavily favored to win in December 2008. I'm calling him out. "That's all I'm going to say".

McGregor had promised to knock out Mayweather and become the first man to stop the American.

Mayweather's reveal is far from surprising considering he partially admitted so after the fight by claiming it was his strategy to refrain from throwing punches in the first four rounds, knowing the tightly wound McGregor, 29, would wear himself out. "Is he a hypocrite?"
