Floyd Mayweather set to fight Conor McGregor

In preparation for the fight against Conor McGregor which will hold on August 26, Floyd Mayweather was seen in a gym in Los Angeles spending over four hours training and repeating a mantra to himself during the workout session.

"You name him. I beat him." Mayweather said to himself as he punched the boxing bag.
"I be trying to tell ya'll ... I can get a black eye, a bloody nose. I can have a bad day in the gym. At the end of the day, I don't have a bad payday and I don't have a bad night under the lights," he continued while pacing.

He added, "I get bumps, bruises ... but I don't have a bad night."

Mayweather retired from boxing in 2015 after beating Andre Berto but came out of retirement to fight McGregor. He made the announcement in early May that he was finally going to make the fight between him and Connor happen after weeks of hints and intimations
“For Conor McGregor … I’m coming out of retirement just to fight Conor McGregor. I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC. Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain, let’s fight in June,” he had told the crowd at a promotional event in May.
