Mayweather breaks his silence on McGregor fight

Floyd Mayweather Conor McGregor Andre Berto Las Vegas T Mobile Arena

Conor McGregor has gone from making $16k in first UFC fight to winning 2 titles to getting a fight booked with Floyd Mayweather, in just 4 years. Only Brock Lesnar's fight against Frank Mir in 2009 is sandwiched between those two. He's just too good at boxing for McGregor and McGregor is just too inexperienced. Every time he fights he's doubted, people are like, 'You can't do this, you can't do that'.

With Roddy training and fine tuning McGregor's boxing skills, the fellow Irishman revealed as much as he could on how the 28-year-old will be able to knockout Mayweather.

McGregor is an extremely skilled athlete who started boxing at age 12 and later transitioned to Mixed Martial Arts after becoming an All-Ireland youth boxing champion. The Westgate says 90% of the money has been placed on Mayweather. We need to see what Mayweather is gonna be coming with.

This will mean the secondary market then opens up, where prices will sky-rocket in the months prior to the August 26 clash with Conor McGregor.

Taliban attacks key Afghan police base, killing at least five officers
Zabihullah Mujahed, a spokesman for the group, claimed to have killed "scores of security personnel" in this attack. The militant group often exaggerates casualty numbers in attacks against government targets and security forces.

UFC president Dana White admits he has no idea how the fight will pan out but he insists McGregor will become the "biggest sports star ever" if he manages to knock Mayweather out.

With less than ten weeks until the unprecedented event takes place in the T-Mobile Arena, we still await confirmation of a press tour, which would be certain to produces fireworks. But, even McGregor's team has to understand why the vast majority of people who understand fighting, believe that Mayweather is going to win, and do so, pretty easily. "Their number one job is commerce and I don't think there is anything wrong with them saying that, other than the fact that they don't".

"If they got in close and Floyd was shucking and juking on the outside and he threw a jab to cover up a left high kick and that left high kick necks him?"

It's great to hear HHH talking about a mainstream fight like this, and if Floyd's history with the company tells us anything, it's that there is always the potential for someone like McGregor to cross over into our universe.
