Mayweather Admits Age Is Catching Up — ‘I’m Not The Same Fighter Anymore’

Boxing legend Floyd “Money” Mayweather admits that his age is catching up to him.

At 40, Mayweather is currently training to come out of retirement. After two years away from the sport, Mayweather is returning to fight UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.

“I know I’m not the same fighter I was 20 years ago, I’m not the same fighter I was 10 years ago… As a matter of fact, I’m not the same fighter I was 5 years ago, I’m just an old legend putting in work,” Mayweather wrote on his Facebook page.

Mayweather will fight for the 50th time in his legendary career when he fights McGregor. He is currently perfect in the sport of boxing with a professional record of 49-0.

McGregor will be making his professional boxing debut when he steps into the ring with Mayweather. However, McGregor is one of the best MMA fighters in the world. He is the only UFC fighter in history to hold two titles at the same time.

Mayweather vs. McGregor will take place Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
