Conor McGregor: I'll KO Floyd Mayweather within two rounds in lighter gloves

Conor McGregor: I'll KO Floyd Mayweather within two rounds in lighter gloves

According to UFC superstar Conor McGregor, the Nevada State Athletic Commission could change the entire landscape of his upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs).

"I love the sport of boxing".

"I never said he's going to beat me", Mayweather said. I think we both owe the fans, as well as the public and everyone tuning in, excitement.

We are almost two weeks away from what could set the record for the richest fight in combat sports history as superstars Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are set to meet in the boxing ring on August 26.

Meanwhile, Bennett also shed some light on why the fight was approved despite McGregor's inexperience.

Jordan Matthews Traded to Bills for Ronald Darby After Sammy Watkins Deal
He, like Matthews, was a former second-round pick, the 50th player taken overall in 2015 after having played at Florida State. Intrigue bubbled beneath the surface with Matthews all spring and summer, as he approached the final year of his rookie deal.

"For years and years it's just been excuses, just with fighters period". The four-fight main card airs on Showtime PPV, following a preliminary program live on FOX.

"The most (important) thing that fighters need is confidence in themselves".

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old McGregor last stepped foot in the Octagon last November when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez in the second round to win the lightweight title at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. He praised McGregor for bringing Hall of Fame referee Joe Cortez to his camp to help the MMA star with the rules of boxing. McGregor's newly formed company, McGregor Sports and Entertainment, has been featured on all promotional material alongside Mayweather Promotions during the build-up to next month's fight. If the undefeated Mayweather is able to best McGregor, who is making his professional boxing debut, the bettor would net a $160,000 profit.

"He's going to come out, and he's going to keep switching". "The future looks bright".
