– My final and biggest take away from what I saw on Saturday night was that early in the ninth round, Conor McGregor was robbed of a chance to win that fight by a Floyd-protecting, Floyd-loving referee named Robert Byrd.
MAN: Stop, Skip.
– And I will get to all that in a moment. But before I address all of your off-point, preposterous, delusional points– trying to save face, and be a man.
MAN: [LAUGHS] My guy won!
– Let me congratulate Floyd Mayweather Jr. And Floyd Sr. Because I thought this was their greatest collaboration. I thought this was their greatest combined achievement of their combined careers. And I want to congratulate both Junior and Senior. Because they had a game plan. They stuck to it. It almost did them in. And Robert Byrd pulled them out of the fire.
But the point is, Floyd did something I thought he couldn’t do. He came out of his comfort zone. He won attacking. He lowered his head and played fullback on Conor McGregor, and I never thought I would see the day that that would happen.
This was the most, by far, entertaining and impressive fight of Floyd’s career– of his career– because this man was in big trouble early in the ninth round, and he pulled himself out of it with a little help from his friend Robert Byrd. But I do owe Floyd Sr. a suit, and I will send him a check.
