Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor surprised pretty much every one on Saturday night by actually putting on a much more entertaining boxing match than most people expected. A lot of that probably had to do with the fact that despite the tremendous amount of hype no one really expected the fight to be anything more than the circus the lead-up to the event was.

During that lead-up to the fight the trash talk between Mayweather and McGregor was virtually non-stop whether it was at an official presser or just on social media. So it only makes sense that it continued during the fight with Mayweather dropping this gem on McGregor at the end of the fifth round as the UFC champ was beginning to tire…

“You still haven’t knocked me out? You said it wouldn’t go past four, when are you going to use your power?”

Of course the shade didn’t end when the fight did as Mayweather also added a little insult to injury at the post-fight press conference…

“We had a cool training camp, but I didn’t do any sparring for the last month,” admitted Mayweather. “My hands are real brittle and I wanted them to be solid when I came out here. If I had serious hard injury I wouldn’t have been able to hit so hard.”

Mayweather also added, with regard to McGregor’s skills and performance…

“He was solid, but I’ve been off for a couple of years and I’m older now. I still have a hell of an IQ and I’m still a thinker.

“His punching power is solid but I’ve felt it before so I kept coming forward. It wasn’t the kind of power that stopped me coming forward.

“I told you guys I’d come straight ahead. I could have sat back and counter-punched. My plan was to let him shoot heavy shots and take him down the stretch. I wanted to let him shoot heavy shots from the beginning.”

McGregor pretty much echoed what Mayweather said about coming forward during his post-fight presser

“He had to change his style, and fair play to him, he adjusted, he changed his style — put his hands up and moved forward. He’s composed. He’s not that fast, he’s not that powerful, but boy was he composed in there.”

“He was making me throw and he was patient with his shots. I’ve got to give him nothing but respect. Fair play to him. Great career he has had.”

So who’s ready for Mayweather vs. McGregor 2? Yeah, that’s what I thought…
