… ‘I Know I Would Win!!!’

“I would like to rematch him under boxing rules, again,” Mayweather said to Tony Robbins during a recent interview … “and I believe I would win.”
“Actually, there I go again with that fake humbleness … I KNOW I WOULD WIN!”
Yeah, you can hear it in his voice … McGregor really wants this.
Of course, Conor first fought Floyd back in August 2017 — with Floyd beating on Conor so badly in the 10th round, the referee stopped the fight.
But, Conor didn’t see the bout as a one-sided massacre … he thinks he was WINNING early on.
“When I went into the fight in the early rounds I was WHOOPING him in the early rounds,” Conor said … “I went back to my corner after the 1st round and I said, ‘This is easy!’
But, Conor says Floyd switched up his style — going from a “back-footed,” defensive approach to a more aggressive “Mexican style.”
Conor says the switch shows how talented Floyd is … but now Conor says he can prepare better for that alternative style and crush Floyd in a rematch.
“He never fought like that in his entire career, but he was forced to fight that way because he was getting beaten,” Conor said.
“The approach caught me off guard. I was not prepared for it, I was not used to it … and he walked me down and end up getting the stoppage.”
Conor says Floyd originally agreed to fight McGregor in an MMA match after the boxing event — but Conor says, “I haven’t heard from him since!”
Floyd has been taking exhibition fights ever since racking up his 50th pro victory … but will a rematch with Conor pique his interest in a comeback?
Stay tuned …
