Floyd Mayweather is going to fight his 50th and final fight on August 26 against Conor McGregor at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Mayweather is definitely the best of his generation, and maybe the greatest of all-time, but a loss to McGregor could change all of that.
Andre Berto, who was the last fighter to lose to Mayweather(49-0, 26 KOs) back in 2015, believes a Mayweather loss to McGregor could have an impact on his legacy.
Here is what Berto told The MMA Hour:
“If this were to be an upset, it would definitely be a big blow to the boxing game, for sure. Definitely, definitely. It’s gonna be a big blow to Floyd’s legacy, as well. Just being undefeated and able to let some guy upset you and he’s an MMA fighter and he probably talks a little more sh__ than you talk. It’s gonna be tough for him to swallow if that were to happen,” Berto said.
Although Mayweather is a 40-year-old fighter, he is fighting a guy who is making his pro boxing debut. Therefore, a loss to McGregor would affect Mayweather’s legacy, especially if he calls himself “TBE”(The Best Ever).
