Floyd Mayweather: I’m glad I didn’t knock McGregor unconscious

22 Sep, 2017

After Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round of their superfight, McGregor says he thought the fight could have gone on longer.

I thought it was close though and I thought it was a little early of a stoppage. I get like that when I’m tired. I get a little wobbly and flowy. But fuck, get me into the corner and I’ll recover and I’ll come back. And I’d like it to hit the floor. There’s a lot on the line here, [Byrd] should have let me keep going I thought, but fair play to [Mayweather].

However, Mayweather says he didn’t want to end McGregor’s career by knocking him out cold.

He has a career. He still has a career. He’s still young. [Knockouts are] very, very damaging. We have to think about these fighters. Even with my uncle Roger. Right now, I got a call, just before I came here, he keeps walking offer, wandering off – no one can find him. He ends up in a hospital. So, brain damage… it happens…In combat sports there are two names. There are two names. Mayweather and McGregor. There are two names. And even with me being off two years, I still was the biggest name. Even with me retired, I’m still the biggest name in boxing and MMA.
