Mayweather Admits Age Might Play A Factor, Says Conor Can Beat Him

Boxing legend Floyd “Money” Mayweather recently admitted that there is a chance UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor can defeat him in a boxing match.

In a recent interview with TMZ, Mayweather said the large age difference between himself and McGregor could play a factor if the two were to compete in a boxing match.

“I’m not gonna sit right here and knock Conor McGregor. He’s gone out there and done what he’s had to do. It’s obvious he’s done something right thus far to get to the point where he’s at. I’ve been off for a couple years and I’m 40 years old now. So, I’m a lot older and he’s still in his 20s and I’m in my 40s now. So that could play a major key, we don’t know. And he’s a heavy hitter. Every time he goes out there and defeats fighters, he’s standing up. He’s in a boxing position and he’s beating fighters. Does he have a good chance of upsetting Floyd Mayweather? I can’t say, but anything can happen in the sport of boxing.”
