Spanner in the Works for Betway Sports
Floyd Mayweather came out of a two-year retirement to fight McGregor this month. So, rumour has it that the undefeated boxer will return to his retirement plans following his win. The boxer is well-known for taking out star boxers, but the match with McGregor proved that even Mayweather can’t beat time. While his strategy to conserve energy eventually earned him a total knockout against McGregor, critics claim that he had a tough time.
‘I’m not the same fighter I was 21 years ago. I’m not the same fighter I was 10 years ago. I’m not even the same fighter I was two years ago,’ Mayweather said in a statement before the fight. Ending his career on a high, might just be the best move for the boxer. For more gambling news, visit us at NZ Casinos.
