After cementing his place as arguably the greatest boxer of all time following his tenth-round victory over Conor McGregor last month, Floyd Mayweather has given his first interview since the historic showdown when appearing on the Steve Harvey Show.
In what was a short but sweet conversation, the undefeated boxer touched upon a number of different issues, ranging from his legacy to McGregor’s game plan and his impending retirement.
It looks like we may have seen the last of ‘Money’ Mayweather in the ring as he surpassed Rocky Marciano’s record to reach 50-0, but the iconic boxer reiterated that the sport is nothing without the fans, paying tribute to the incredible Irish support which descended upon Las Vegas to support McGregor in their record-breaking bout.
While Mayweather admits that he and Conor have not spoken since the fight – it’s clear that there is mutual respect between the fighters despite all the trash talk which circulated in the build-up to one of the year’s most highly-anticipated sporting occasions.
The interview includes some amusing lines, with Floyd reckoning that he was so good at boxing they had to go find somebody from another combat sport to take him on because he had already dominated one scene.
Although we won’t see as much of him given the curtain has drawn on his fantastic career – there is no denying that Floyd Mayweather is a character who oozes class and charisma and entertains fans everywhere he goes without failure.
