2. McGregor Is 12 Years His Junior
The age difference is enough to give Mayweather pause alone. Those 12 years are more like two decades in fighting years.
That’s more years of punishment on the body and mind, and even though Mayweather has taken little damage in the ring, given McGregor’s young age and limited years fighting, he’s naturally taken less damage and will come into the bout as the fresher, younger fighter.
Mayweather has been on top of the boxing world for a long time, but everyone eventually loses if they roll the dice to often.
Will this be that time for Mayweather? I’m sure it’s crossed his mind in the buildup to this fight.
