Chris Eubank Jr offers his take on the fight having watched Mayweather in training leading up to the August 26th bout.
Chris Eubank Jr has been spending the last few weeks in Floyd Mayweather’s gym in Las Vegas as the Englishman gets ready for his World Boxing Super Series debut in the near future.
He’s been keeping an eye on Mayweather and knows plenty about the American having trained in his gym many times before – and under the watchful eye of Floyd Mayweather senior for parts of his career.
He’s been respectful of Conor McGregor’s work ethic and athletic abilities but has warned Mayweather is in as good as shape as a couple of years ago:
Watching Floyd train over the last 3 weeks in my opinion he's in just as good condition as he was when I watched him train for Maidana & Pacquiao. Even though Conor has never had a pro boxing match Floyd is not taking this fight lightly, he is going to bring it & I know Conor is never the type to back down so I expect there to be some serious action come August 26 #MayweatherMcGregor
Eubank Jr’s next fights on October 7th in Germany against unbeaten Turkish fighter Avni Yildirim in a bout for the IBO super-middleweight world title.
