Berto's Tale of Mayweather Fight Sends Warning To McGregor

UFC boss Dana White all but confirmed Conor McGregor’s forthcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather earlier this week.

The 47-year-old claimed the lucrative boxing match was the fight all fans wanted to see.

“It’s intriguing and obviously, it’s a fight that Conor wants because financially it’s going to be massive for him,” he said.


He went on to concede that he could not imagine the fight not happening in the near future, such is the interest in the match-up.

With that in mind, The Notorious could do a lot worse than listening to Andre Berto – a former world welterweight champion who was beaten by Mayweather in 2015 – as he reminisced about the points loss.

“It’s crazy, it’s almost like he cons himself out of every round,” the 33-year-old said to “He throws just enough to be active enough to win that round.

“You get frustrated because you want, you prepared for eight or nine weeks to go to battle with somebody, to touch somebody and get into contact.

“But when you get in there it felt like I was sparring. I get back to my corner and I’m like ‘What was that last round? Did he hit me? Did I hit him? What are we doing?’”

If Money Mayweather meets McGregor in the ring, it presents him with an opportunity to surpass Rocky Marciano’s 49-fight unbeaten streak.

But UFC legend Bas Rutten claimed the Dubliner had a puncher’s chance of pulling off one of the greatest upsets in sporting history.
