The Mayweather vs McGregor showdown is just a few days away and while Mayweather is a huge favourite to triumph over Conor McGregor in the squared circle, there is another arena where things are not so clear-cut – the social media space. On Instagram, The Notorious out-points Floyd Mayweather with his following of just over 17 million. On the other hand, the undefeated 40-year-old boxer lags behind in the 16 million range.
We worked together with CupoNation Singapore, the leading online savings platform that helps consumers save on their day-to-day budget, to analyse the social media statistics between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, and find out which fighter brags the most.
Here’s what we found:
- People search more about Floyd Mayweather’s net worth especially in January 2017 compared to Conor McGregor
- Both Mayweather and McGregor have a fondness for luxury cars over other luxurious items
- However McGregor has 3 times more Lamborghini posts and 2.4 times more Rolls Royce posts on Instagram compared to Mayweather
- McGregor has 3 times more Instagram posts about luxury watches even though Mayweather is sponsored by luxury watch brand Hublot
Although both seem to be luxury car aficionados with a penchant for brands such as Rolls Royce, Lamborghinis and Cadillacs, McGregor has 2.5 times more Instagram posts of his cars compared to Mayweather. Conor McGregor also has double more Instagram posts of luxury cars in comparison to Floyd Mayweather. Of course, there has been a lot of speculation that McGregor just rents his cars while Mayweather owns the cars he drives.
When the final bell has rung, it’s quite clear that McGregor is the clear winner in the social media circle. After all, his stratospheric rise through the fight world can be attributed to that left hand as well as his mastery of Instagram, Facebook and the other platforms to promote himself. And as much as you would like to hate both of them, it is clear that they are as much smart businessmen as they are fighters.
Who are you rooting for?
