In a recent interview, speaking with motivational speaker Tony Robbins, Conor McGregor expressed his thoughts on his fight with Floyd Mayweather and how he thinks he wins the rematch.
“I would love another go in the boxing arena. Floyd is known for his Philly-shell defensive style of fighting. He has his right arm tucked in, or he’s orthodox so it’s the opposite, but he has one arm tucked in by his belly and one arm kept up by his ear. He uses his shoulder to deflect shots. He’s a back footed fighter, he fights on the back foot.
“That’s what I prepared for because that is all I had seen of him. My sparring partners were fighters on the back fight, fighting defensive, back against the ropes and then when I went into the fight in the early rounds, I was whooping him in the early rounds. I actually went back to my corner after the first round and said ‘this is easy’. I literally said that to my corner man, this is easy and then he had to switch up his style.”
“I believe I would win. Actually, there I go again with the fake humbleness — I know I would win.”Conor McGregor speaking with Tony Robbins
