FLOYD MAYWEATHER would have breathed a sigh of relief when Wanheng Menayothin’s 54-fight winning streak was ended.
The Thai boxer, 35, surpassed the American’s incredible 50-0 professional record in 2018.

This led to claims that Menayothin was ‘the best ever’ – which infuriated Mayweather.
The Thai star – who weights just 105lbs – announced his plans to retire at 54-0.
But he reversed that decision to face Thai rival Panya Pradabsri – and then he lost.
Judges scored the title fight 115-113, 115-113, 115-113 in favour of Pradabsri.
Now that he has a record of 54-1, Mayweather is back where he belongs at the top.
The American – who last fought when he beat Conor McGregor in 2017 – hit out at claims that Menayothin was the GOAT.
During an interview with Club Shay Shay, Mayweather fumed: “I’m 50-0 for a reason.
“Right now they git a fighter that’s over in Asia that’s 54-0 and they say, ‘This is the new TBE’, because he’s about to retire.
