THE last boxer to fight Floyd Mayweather has given his taken on Floyd’s first match-up with an MMA fighter, Conor McGregor. Andre Berto boxed Mayweather in 2015, in Floyd’s 49th fight, and lost a wide points decision over 12 rounds.
He’s not surprised to see Mayweather returning to the sport. “If there’s a record to break then he’s going to make sure to break it. I thought he’s going to come to fight. If he wins he beats Marciano’s record. He’ll definitely want to finish off 50-0 and break Marciano’s record and make a lot of money in the process,” Berto said.
He doesn’t think the break will affect Floyd either. “When he fought Marquez I believe he came off a two year lay-off. The guy is sharp. He’s stays in the gym. It won’t be different with McGregor. I believe he’ll be sharp going into that one too,” Andre said.
