On Sunday, Floyd Mayweather won and attained 50-0 for his career in a highly anticipated bout against Conor McGregor.
While McGregor certainly represents the most unusual of Mayweather’s opponents, the 40-year-old, self-acclaimed “Best Ever” has faced a wide variety of opponents over his 21-year career.
Some of those opponents are still fighting today, some are recently retired, some are legends in boxing, while others have faded out of view. Unfortunately, some of the fighters have since died as well.
We did our best to track down all 47 of Mayweather’s past opponents and find out what they’re up to today. While some have seemingly fallen off the map, some still hang around the boxing world.
