Opinion Of Mayweather
Wood On Podcast
I don't even think its going to be a close fight.
I think its going to end up in a disqualification because he (Conor) does not want to get knocked out.
I've trained Floyd on the national team a number of times.
He is a personal friend of mine.
I've worked with his uncles a number of times.
I was just out at the Mayweather Boxing Club with Eddie Mustafa Muhammad. I don't think Comor has a chance to beat him.
