I loved training. But you know what?
"Everybody trying to protest the Mayweather-McGregor fight but I'm going to tell you all the truth", Mayweather said.
Still, there was a lingering feeling from some in the aftermath that the fight, pairing the greatest boxer of his era against a boxing novice, may not have been completely on the up and up.
Right now, McGregor's future in the sport of mixed martial arts is uncertain. "Come on, you don't give me two rounds? And that's it. I feel with the lessons I learned from that first fight, if I had another go around, I'd get it". It was all part of the undefeated boxer's strategy to let McGregor punch himself out - something that certainly appeared to happen as the rounds wore on - so that he could put him away in the later rounds.
Mayweather confidently said that he made the fight "look good" for the audience, including the four million who ordered the pay-per-view event.
The hype around the Mayweather (50-0 boxing) vs. McGregor (21-3 MMA, 0-1 boxing) bout, which took place in August and saw "The Notorious" lose by TKO in Round 10, was a once-in-a-lifetime circus.
"You know I'm competitive", De La Hoya said on "Golden Boy Radio with Tattoo and the Crew", a daily digital radio show.
Mayweather labelled De La Hoya a "hypocrite" after the boxing legend challenged the UFC fighter to a fight of his own in mid-November.
While McGregor won the first three rounds according to most, he didn't get credit from all circles for it. De La Hoya hasn't fought since Manny Pacquaio pummeled him into submission in a stunningly one-sided fight De La Hoya was heavily favored to win in December 2008. "That's all I'm going to say". The 44-year-old De La Hoya reiterated that he would need only two rounds to knock out McGregor in a 154-pound boxing match, but admitted that his body won't allow him to return even for what he thinks would be an easy fight. "Is he a hypocrite?"
