“Mentally I could just go to another place where nobody else can go just in that ring, and outside the ring, because I can’t speak for no other fighters, but I don’t know what, how they have invested.”

He continued, “I can go anywhere, you know, just being able to adapt. Being able to adjust, making adjustments. So that’s we’re good at that, that’s what goes on in real life.”

Floyd Mayweather was an extremely hard-working boxer. He dedicated countless hours in the gym to give his best inside the ring. In the interview, Mayweather asserted that his mantra was to adapt to situations real quick and deliver what he was supposed to.

This is principally why he feels none of the boxers could reach his level. He added that there are colossal boxers out there who’re bigger and stronger than him. But they just cannot reach the mental stability that he has.
