Despite insisting he was serious about the occasion, he admits that he ‘didn’t really train’.
Floyd Mayweather has spoken about his laid back preparation for fight with Conor McGregor
‘All I did was do pushups and situps. That’s all I did. Pushups and situps, box a few times, hit the bag a few times. Because, actually, the training camp was in different places’, he told Drink Champs.
‘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 reportedly earned £211million for the showpiece Las Vegas bout nearly three years ago.
Mayweather’s last bout was an exhibition appearance against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve in 2018.
