McGregor is looking a bit fatigued (As am I). This is Floyd's time. That guy has insane endurance. pic.twitter.com/vdw2wg1NpX— Amy Fadool Kane (@amyfadoolCSN) August 27, 2017
McGregor's gastank was the difference in the fight. If he had the endurance in him, he'd have really run that close.— Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) August 27, 2017
If McGregor could have maintained his stamina, he'd have KO'ed Mayweather. But Mayweather didn't start fighting till half the fight.— Macy Walker (@WalkerMacy) August 27, 2017
Idc what you guys say: #McGregor can box! He lost because of a lack of stamina.— Julius Hodge (@Follow24Hodge) August 27, 2017
