He never took a loss fighting straight up. I can’t overlook that, because one shot can end your whole career. He’s a tough competitor but it is what it is.”Mayweather forged his 49-0 record on the back of phenomenal speed and defensive reflexes, often being criticized for his unwillingness to go to toe-to-toe with opponents.Another boxing masterclass could well be in store for McGregor, but Mayweather is unfazed by the possibility that the Irish brawler may deploy mixed martial arts tactics if he struggles to lay a glove on the American.“That’s the referee’s job,” Mayweather said. “My job is to go out there and be a boxer, be a fighter. I’m pretty sure the referee’s going to be fair and fun.“I’ll leave all that up to the referee. My job is to go out there and fight against the guy that’s across from me.“The fans demanded the fight. McGregor wanted this fight, I wanted this fight. August 26, it’s going to be blood sweat and tears from the opening bell.”center_img MOST READ LATEST STORIES View comments End of his agony?
