Mike Tyson Says He HATED “Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out” When It First Came Out (VIDEO)
Boxing Commentator Jim Lampley Says Mayweather Threw Rounds Vs. McGregor To Set Up Rematch (Video)
According to Hall of Fame boxing commentator Jim Lampley, August’s record-breaking boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor was just a “marvelous scam” designed to milk a bunch of “suckers.”
Lampley, who’s been calling boxing matches for over 30 years, recently shared his harsh feelings on the so-called superfight with TMZ. He says he is utterly convinced Mayweather tanked at least three rounds, dragging the fight out so as to set up a possible rematch.
But wait, you object. Hasn’t Mayweather said he is definitely 100% retired now?
Lampley doesn’t think so.
“Why should he retire?” Lampley asks rhetorically in the video. “He created a marvelous scam with this whole thing.
“He allowed Conor to quote ‘win’ three rounds so that the whole global MMA wish community could have something to latch on to. I think there’s a decent chance, there’s enough suckers out there, Floyd could maybe make another $150 million, why not?
“It’s all a set up.”
Take a look:
Clearly Jim Lampley is not a member of the Floyd Mayweather fan club.
While I don’t know if Mayweather “threw” any rounds, I do know Lampley’s not alone in thinking the whole fight was a scam. A lot of people (including yours truly) said all along that there was no way on earth McGregor could win, and that this whole thing was just a cash grab.
