Floyd Mayweather has stated that going the distance with Conor McGregor will be considered a victory by the UFC star.
Both fighters have predicted stoppage victories , as they hope to end the match without going the distance in Las Vegas.
Mayweather is of a mind that McGregor can find solace in going the distance with him as a victory, even if he loses.
“He believes it’s not going past four and I believe that it’s not going to go the distance at all,” said Mayweather at his media workout.
“He feels one way, I feel another way, we are both confident in our skills and we’ll just have to see.
“It is a victory for him. If it goes the distance, it’s a victory for him – in my eyes also.”
“He’s said that he’s used to fighting in 4oz gloves, so like I said in my post, I want to give you (McGregor) any advantage that you think,” said Mayweather.
“For years and years it’s just been excuses, just with fighters period.”
