Floyd Mayweather Insists He ‘Carried’ Conor McGregor Through Superfight

Is Floyd Mayweather Jr. more of a showman than he is a competitor?

The boxing legend claims he helped Conor McGregor appear to be a better boxer than he actually was during their Aug. 26 superfight in Las Vegas.

Mayweather said so amid an astonishing attack on Oscar De La Hoya, and Twitter user @WeavusChrist on Monday shared a video of Mayweather recounting his McGregor bout, which he won in the 10th round via TKO.

“Everybody try to protest the Mayweather-McGregor fight,” Mayweather said. “But I’m gonna tell you all the truth. You know I carried McGregor? You know I made it look good for y’all?”

Mayweather previously admitted McGregor’s boxing skills impressed him, but that compliment now seems somewhat disingenuous.
