Floyd “Money” Mayweather’s team is worried about UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor doing something “crazy” in their highly anticipated boxing match.
Mayweather’s assistant trainer Nate Jones recently talked to MMAjunkie about McGregor’s unpredictability.
“One way I can see the fight ending is Floyd outboxing him, beating the crap out of him. Another way I’m gonna be concerned about is when Floyd gets to a point where he frustrates him too much, McGregor’s gonna do something crazy,” Jones said. “That’s the only thing I’m worried about.”
Mayweather may have all of the advantages going into this fight, but McGregor has never fought in a professional boxing match. There is no knowing what McGregor will do in a boxing ring.
“We’ve seen Sugar Shane Mosely, we seen (DeMarcus) Chop Chop Corley, we seen Zab Judah hit him with a good shot and Floyd kept going. I think he (McGregor) punches a little bit harder than those guys. That’s my opinion,” Jones said.
“I would be more concerned about this fight because Floyd’s a little older now. He’s 40 years old, McGregor has crazy weird power and he’s got weird shots from weird angles. I’m worried about that.
“But for my prediction in the fight, is Floyd either confusing him and frustrating him and stopping him in the later rounds or Floyd outboxing him or he doing something stupid and losing the fight. That’s my prediction.”
