The 39-year-old American is currently retired after extending his unbeaten record to 49 wins, but what has happened to his final five opponents after they endured defeat at the fists of Mayweather Jr?
His former foes have experienced mixed fortunes after lucrative fights against a superstar of the sport…
The undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. warns the unbeaten World Boxing Organization super flyweight titleholder Terence Crawford on a possible showdown with eight-division world champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao.
“If Terence Crawford happens to fight Manny Pacquiao, I want to let him know that it’s not going to be easy. Even though I know I made it look easy, it’s not going to be easy,” said “The Money.”
Mayweather also admitted that “Pacman” surprised him as he could really fight.
“He’s a lot better than what I thought he was. From me being in the ring with Manny Pacquiao, I take my hat off to him and I can see why he went so far in his career,” the retired boxer added.
Mayweather explained that Pacquiao is bigger, stronger and even “hits harder” that Crawford’s previous opponent, Yuriorkis Gamboa.
