By Allan Fox: Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0, 26 KOs) surprisingly weighed in at 149 ½ pounds on Friday for his weigh-in with UFC champion Conor McGregor (0-0) for their fight this Saturday night. The weight limit for the fight is 154 lbs. McGregor weighed in at 153 lbs.

McGregor was psyched up, talking trash the entire time during the face off with the very subdued Mayweather. It looked like McGregor had gotten completely into Mayweather’s head during the face off. McGregor had him quiet and looking uncomfortable.

You hate to say that Mayweather made a mistake with his weight for the fight, but I think he did. He could have come into the weigh-in heavier than he did. You’ve got to believe that Mayweather will be well into the 150s in terms of weight tomorrow night. Why then did Mayweather make the decision to come in 5 lbs. under the 154 lb. limit for the weigh-in? It makes me wonder whether Mayweather over calculated his weight when draining down to make the weight for the fight.

“He looks out of shape,” said McGregor in talking about Mayweather after the weigh-in. ”I’m going to blow right through him. I’m in peak physical condition. I’m a lot bigger than him. I’d say close to 170,” said McGregor when asked what weight he’ll come in for the fight with Mayweather on Saturday night. “You never beat the Irish. Las Vegas is Ireland now. I’m stamping my foot in the center of the ring and I’m not moving. I see a man afraid,” said McGregor.

McGregor got the better of Mayweather during the face off. McGregor was talking pure trash, and he had Mayweather looking nervous and unsure of himself. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Mayweather look so squeamish before during a face off during his career. It’s usually Mayweather that is getting the better of his opponents mentally during the face off. This time, it looked like Mayweather was afraid and already beaten. It makes you wonder how much the 2 years out of the ring has affected Mayweather.

It’s been a long. long time since Mayweather last fought, and he hasn’t looked good in a fight in many years. He beat an injured Manny Pacquiao in 2015, and he still almost lost to the Filipino star. In Mayweather’s last fight against the hand-picked Andre Berto, he lacked energy and looked old in that fight. It’s not surprising that Mayweather picked out Berto for his last fight, because if he had taken on Keith Thurman or Errol Spence, I think he would have lost. Mayweather isn’t capable of fighting hard any longer. Age has caught up to him and made him an old man at 40. McGregor looks poised to take advantage of Mayweather’s old age on Saturday.

“Weight doesn’t win fights,” said Mayweather after the weigh-in. “Fighting wins fights. It won’t go the distance, mark my words. It’ll not only be my last fight, it’ll be his last fight as well,” said Mayweather in predicting McGregor won’t fight in boxing after tomorrow night.
