Is there a chance that Mayweather could actually lose? Will Paul be competitive? The CBSSports.com experts broke down the fight and gave their predictions. For his part, Paul said at the pre-fight press conference that he believes he could get a result against the undefeated boxing legend.
“I think I have to knock him out. Someone’s getting knocked out. Someone’s gonna quit,” Paul said.
Mayweather told the assembled reporters that he’s happy Paul has that belief in himself but reminded them that his 50 other opponents have had that same mindset.
“I’m glad he’s got confidence. I’m glad he believes in himself. Last time I checked, all 50 fighters that I faced, they all said the same thing,” Mayweather said.
