While Conor McGregor has been getting murals painted and posting daily videos of him training for the mega-fight, Floyd’s been pretty quiet outside of promoting his new strip club “Girl Collection”. He’s pretty stayed away from the training videos, save for a few IG stories here and there.
Then he drops this one last night, which is without a doubt a direct shot at Conor. Not because it’s just a regular training video, but because he’s rocking the 16 oz gloves while he’s doing it.
His caption reads:
I know I’m not the same fighter I was 20 years ago, I’m not the same fighter I was 10 years ago… As a matter of fact, I’m not the same fighter I was 5 years ago,I’m just an old legend putting in work in 16 oz gloves #TMT #TBE@mayweatherpromotions
Remember, the UFC uses those tiny 4 oz gloves and regular boxing uses 10 oz gloves, which a lot of the so-called experts think is a major disadvantage for Conor.
So when Floyd drops the video showing off his blazing fast hands wearing the 16 oz’s, that’s a message to the McGregor camp.
