Too many to count. However, just connecting any punches on Mayweather will be a tall order. Mayweather is regarded as one of the best defensive fighters to have ever lived. Way back in against Carlos Hernandez, Mayweather took a ten-count after having glove issues, but it was far from a real knockout strike.
By ducking and dodging a barrage of punches, Mayweather will either tire out or frustrate McGregor. With McGregor worn down or flustered, Mayweather will counter with pin-point precision and win on points alone. At the end of the day, anything can happen in boxing. And we mean anything. Mayweather is the sure-fire pick here.
