"This era, I call it the Mayweather Era, and in the Mayweather Era, we have social media and computers in this era so it's a lot different now".

He said: "I believe at the beginning he had a lot of difficulties when it came to southpaws. but within the last few years, he's really dialled in". And I'm in my 40s.

"I don't know how much interest the boxing and MMA public would have in a fight between Canelo and McGregor if the UFC star is soundly beaten by Mayweather".

"I used to have a 90 percent knockout ratio", said Mayweather, who fully acknowledges he's not the fighter he once was.

"This undercard includes three meaningful matches featuring fighters we've seen develop over the years on Showtime", Showtime Sports executive vice president and general manager Stephen Espinoza said in the release.

'I checked with the previous executive director, Hall-of-Famer Marc Ratner, and our program officer, who has been here for 30 years. What happens? Any damn thing can happen in a fight.

'You don't quite know what we're going to get from Mayweather. the fact that he's coming from two years out nearly makes this competitive from the point of view where Mayweather is not going to be the Mayweather we're used to'.

See the rest of Mayweather's interview above. McGregor was almost a 10/1 underdog when the fight began to seem like a possibility in November, and his odds are down to +375. Mayweather is not that type of boxer, he prefers to pick off his opponents. He fought Manny Pacquiao in a fight that drew 4.6 million PPV buys.

Pub bosses have stood down in their bid to open until 7am to show a boxing match.

Still, most of the boxing world is convinced Mayweather will win without any trouble. "I never known a man to make hundreds of millions that's losing", he said. "The chairman and commissioners would make the determination with the health and safety of the fighters being the number-one priority". He also knows he'll be a flawless 50-0 when he retires for a third time, whether he's willing to admit it or not.
