Former lightweight and welterweight boxing world champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley is among one of many in the boxing world who feels Conor McGregor has virtually no chance of defeating Floyd Mayweather in their Aug. 26 boxing match.
In a recent appearance on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Mosley went as far to say McGregor would have a better chance at defeating Floyd Mayweather Sr. — and even then it’s a “50/50 chance” at best.
“I can’t even come up with a scenario [where McGregor beats Mayweather],” Mosley said. “The best fight that I think is Floyd Mayweather Sr. and McGregor. He’s 64-years-old. Now that’s a fight. That’s a good fight where I don’t know who’s going to win. And I slightly, I slightly pick Floyd Mayweather Sr. I slightly pick him but I don’t know who’s going to win that fight.”
For the record, Mayweather Sr. last competed in 1990.
Mosley also gave the edge in the Aug. 26 bout to Mayweather because, despite circumstances such as facing an MMA fighter and the use of 8 oz. gloves, he knows from experience that Mayweather can adapt to anything out of the ordinary.
