Floyd Mayweather is not an out-of-shape journeyman

When Floyd Mayweather boxes, you can see why the sport is called the sweet science.

When Conor McGregor boxes, you can see that he is going to get a biblical ass-whopping from Floyd Mayweather.

Don't believe us? Take it from McGregor's former sparring partner. In an interview with TMZ Sports, ex-IBO welterweight champion Chris van Heerden said that he was able to land punches “at will” when he fought McGregor, even though he was out of shape.

He went on to say it was “crazy” that anyone would actually compare the two fighters or even suggest that Mayweather (49-0) could possibly lose to a guy who’s never even boxed as a pro. “If you go on his résumé, he's beaten the best in the world,” van Heerden said of Mayweather. "He's been hit by guys that can punch and he doesn't go down. He's so good. He knows how to recover.”

He also knows how to dupe people into thinking his fight with McGregor (who’s in grey in the video, if you couldn’t tell) will be worth watching.

But it ain’t gonna happen.
