Floyd Mayweather warns Khabib that Conor is a “hell of a fighter and tough competitor
Money” Mayweather on Monday leaving Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City and asked him about the one-year anniversary of his fight with Conor McGregor.
“A year on the 28th, Mayweather verse Mcgregor hell of a fight. Hell of a showdown. I take my hat off to Conor Mcgregor. He’s a hell of a fighter. He a tough competitor,” Floyd said.
Then, the cameraman asked him about what advice he’d give to Khabib, the man Conor is facing in a couple months in what is arguably the biggest fight ever. Floyd replied: “Conor’s not gonna back down and he’s not a scared fighter at all, win, lose or draw. Conor gonna come to fight,” Floyd said before calling Conor a “warrior.”
In addition to all that, Floyd appears to have moved on from his differences with Conor and is offering his assistance to the Irish fighter, giving him a chance to train at the Mayweather facility in Las Vegas where the fight will be. “I know that UFC got a training facility but we’d like for him to work out at the Mayweather Boxing Club,” Floyd said. However, you know that’s just more promotion for Floyd and I doubt that will even happen knowing Conor, but ya never know.
Check out the brief discussion with Floyd (below) and look for the Conor vs Khabib fight to go down October 6th in Las Vegas.
