Floyd Mayweather Jr. proved he’s the best pound-for-pound boxer of all-time with his defeat of Conor McGregor on Saturday.
The GOAT improved to 50-0 lifetime and cruised to victory without even putting forth all that much effort. So really, it was a great deal for him, as well as for McGregor, who will enjoy a $30 million payout.
McGregor also learned some other valuable lessons as well — like, how to box, for instance. When you’re training for, watching tape on and squaring up to the GOAT, you’re gonna learn some things. The Notorious One believes he did, which he recently stated on Instagram.
McGregor will likely come back stronger than ever after this loss — from the skills he developed and flaws in his style that he can now work on correcting.
