Evander Holyfield the former heavyweight champion in boxing stated his side that Mayweather has a very big chance to win over McGregor during their Mayweather vs McGregor fight on the 26th of August, however, he sees a different side as well on how Mayweather will be defeated by McGregor.
Holyfield was invited in TMZ Sports for an interview and insight on the upcoming fight and for him, the only way for McGregor and his team reign Victor is to put Mayweather in a situation that he is not compatible with and that is too rough him up and put Mayweather in a face-off battle.
Floyd Mayweather is one of the most versatile and a virtuoso in defending and time after time, he has been very efficient and successful with it. The question is if McGregor can put in a significant damage to Mayweather and penetrate his defenses although McGregor is known to have a very powerful left hand.
From ESPN.com, Brett Okamoto had been reading along comments and opinions about McGregor and his sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi in regards with their sparring session.
As per Paulie who experienced McGregor in the ring during their sparring sessions, he stated and emphasized McGregor’s left-hand power. A pop in his left hand can literally damage anyone who will get hit by it. Although that would be McGregor’s asset, being a fighter, McGregor is devising a lot of techniques and ways to attack Mayweather’s defensive stance and not just rely on his left hand.
On the other hand, Mayweather is very well aware of McGregor’s left power however he will be prepared enough for it and he is a smart fighter as well. If McGregor is not prepared to find another way to put Mayweather in a face-off in the ring, then McGregor will definitely have a hard time knocking him out and lose McGregor’s hopes in winning against Mayweather.
