Floyd Mayweather Makes Startling Admission About His Mega-Fight With Conor McGregor
Floyd Mayweather has shockingly admitted that he "didn't really train" for his blockbuster super-fight with Conor McGregor.
The 42-year-old American superstar famously clashed with McGregor in a crossover fight in 2017.
And Mayweather, who retired from boxing undefeated, walked away with the ultimate bragging rights after he secured a stunning TKO victory over the Irish UFC superstar.
The undefeated former boxer has now claimed that his training regime was far from intense.
"For the Conor McGregor [fight], I didn't really train," Mayweather told Drink Champs.
"All I did was do pushups and sit-ups. That's all I did. Pushups and sit-ups, box a few times, hit the bag a few times. Because, actually, the training camp was in different places.
"I would do a training camp in Vegas a few days. Sometimes I wouldn't go to the gym for a week.
"I took it serious. Like I said before, I wanted to have some fun in the fight. I wanted to entertain the people."
Mayweather also boasted that he didn't watch any footage of McGregor fighting ahead of their mega-bout.

"My thing is this: I don't have to watch any footage of a fight because I'm Floyd Mayweather," he said.
"Everybody's got to watch me."
Former five-weight world champ Mayweather revealed last year that he is "coming out of retirement in 2020."
And the ex-boxing star said that he would be collaborating with UFC president Dana White on bringing the "world another spectacular event in 2020."
McGregor, 31, made his sensational UFC return last month with a stunning first-round victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.
However, the 'Notorious' has refused to rule out a rematch with Mayweather and argued that he would beat him should they fight again.
"I'd like to rematch Floyd. I think we should rematch, Floyd," McGregor said.
"He's flirting with [a comeback] and doing all this. He can go and pick someone else, it's not going to be the same."
