Chris Algieri on Whether Floyd Mayweather Has Enough Power to Stop Conor McGregor
By FCF Staff
Some people have argued that Floyd Mayweather doesn’t possess enough power to stop Conor McGregor on Saturday night, but former boxing champ, Chris Algieri, disagrees.
Since Mayweather has gone to the judge’s scorecards in nine of his last ten bouts, some have questioned whether the undefeated boxer could finish McGregor. But, during an interview on Talking With TK, Algieri said this (quote via Boxing Scene):
“They’re boxing, so the boxer is going to win. I do think Floyd has enough power to stop him, he’s fought 20-plus world champions in a row. At that level, every one hits hard. Conor can win a round I think early. Floyd will make him work to tire him out,” Algieri said.
“Conor could win a round or two on high activity and doing more than Floyd is doing. Although I think Floyd will be setting things up for further rounds. When transitioning from kickboxing to boxing, I was always more of a boxer than a traditional kickboxer. Even still it took me 10 to 15 fights to figure it out.”
Algieri hasn’t fought since April, 2016, when he was TKO’d by Errol Spence. Mayweather and McGregor will box on August 26th, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
