The truth is out: Floyd Mayweather did little in the way of preparation for his August 2017 boxing match against Conor McGregor, this week revealing the training camp regiment consisted of press-ups, sit-ups and a few rounds on the bag and in the ring.
In the end, of course, he didn’t need much more than that. The stoppage of McGregor, secured in the 10th round, was as straightforward as it was predictable. But it will still come as a surprise to some to hear how little Mayweather did in the lead up to such a heavily hyped so-called super fight.
“For the Conor McGregor (fight), I didn’t really train,” Mayweather said to The Drink Champs.
