Conor McGregor compares himself to Bruce Lee ahead of Floyd Mayweather fight

March 15, 2017 - White, also appearing on Conan and therefore nearly bringing the saga full circle, says: "I do think it's going to happen".

Mayweather and McGregor are less than a week away from the fight that has captured everyone's imagination.

American referee Robert Byrd is to oversee the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor on August 26.

The boxer took to Thursday for a post that has been deleted and reposted, instructing fans to buy tickets for his upcoming fight with Connor McGregor from Solky, who we referred to as a 'scalper'. I think what you want to really look at for this matchup is the intensity. Mayweather has reigned supreme in Las Vegas, but McGregor attracted 10,000 Irish and UFC fans to his last fight.

Mayweather will surpass fellow American Rocky Marciano's flawless record of 49 fights without defeat should he overcome McGregor.

"So what I would try to do is get him to understand that he's got to work three minutes out of three minutes and move his hands". If McGregor is able to employ any MMA tactics in their fight, it could end up being a long night for Mayweather. "There's so much money involved, I just don't see how it doesn't happen".

"I believe now that gloves are eight ounces I don't believe he makes it out of the second round", McGregor said.

"I'd probably get beaten". I think his biggest setback in this fight is going to be defensively, he's stepping into a whole new world compared to MMA striking.

Atlético waiting on a call from Chelsea over Diego Costa
Meanwhile, it is not yet clear if Diego Costa would meet these requirements as the striker is now in Brazil training alone. Chelsea striker Diego Costa has revealed that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho contacted him by phone this summer.

But Horn couldn't throw his support behind the UFC legend, giving Mayweather his vote in what should be a ripping fight. The response may make you uncomfortable, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I'm not the same fighter I was two years ago.

"I had done the bare minimum beforehand just to show up in a little bit of shape as I assumed the training camp would be like mine or other boxers where each sparring partner does four to six rounds, not twelve. While Mayweather is still the favourite, bettors have overwhelmingly backed the MgGregor to win with odds having been cut in half", said Alexander Kostin from the website Bet-bonuscode.co.uk.

According to McGregor, it didn't matter who Mayweather trained with over the past two months to get ready for him because the options are very limited when it comes to a person capable of imitating the Irishman in the ring. "Two men at the pinnacle of the game in both sports". And [McGregor] could stop him.
