Bayless: Mayweather is afraid of McGregor

Makes Statement

Bayless says Mayweather’s offer of $15 million shows that he is not interested in fighting McGregor.

What a bunch of delusional bluster from Floyd May-or-may-not-Weather Jr. He can sell this bologna to the people he pays to say yes to him, who surround him and hang around him all day long but I am not going to buy it because it’s obviously what Floyd May-or-may-not-Weather is doing. He’s making an insultingly low offer to Conor McGregor because there is no way he wants any part — even boxing under boxing rules — of Conor McGregor, who is now the baddest man on this planet. He is afraid of Conor McGregor. Conor McGregor is 28 years of age, Floyd is almost 40 years of age and he’s heading towards washed up. Because he has not fought anybody for a long, long time. He is afraid of what Conor McGregor, even under strictly boxing rules would do to Floyd’s 49-0 legacy, which is tainted forever. Some MMA fighter, what if he lost to an MMA fighter? Which he would. What he’s going to do, this is classic Floyd — he’s going to jab and he’s going to run and he’s going to jab and he’s going to run. Then he’s going to jab and then he’s going to run, run, run some more because he’s going to run and hide from Conor McGregor. Globally, Conor McGregor is much bigger than Floyd Mayweather. I’m sorry, he’s the draw in UFC and so he’s the global draw right now.

Bayless: Mayweather worried about McGregror boxing skills

Makes Statement

Bayliss says that McGregor is very strong in boxing and, in his opinion, Mayweather declined to fight him to protect his legacy.

I never trust what Floyd says, only what Floyd ends up doing. This could be a ploy to hype what could become a Floyd vs Conor McGregor boxing match…I think [Floyd] studied McGregor as a boxer, because McGregor can box…I liked his footwork and I really like his chin. He’s got an iron jaw, not a glass jaw. I’m guessing that Floyd has studied him and started to think, ‘Maybe I couldn’t school him the way I thought I could. I couldn’t just run rings around him. Maybe he’s just crazy enough to hang in there with me’…That would diminish Floyd’s legacy, if Conor McGregor even hung in with him and made it a battle. I’m thinking that Floyd finally decided, ‘He wants a lot of money, I don’t know if  need this aggravation right now. I think I’m going to steer clear.’
