Ex-sparring partner predicts 'easy' win for Mayweather in McGregor fight

The UFC lightweight champion has been booked to fight fellow megastar and boxing all-time great Floyd Mayweather Jr.in a boxing contest on august 26 in Las Vegas.

The big fight was announced on Wednesday (14Jun17), when the undefeated boxer declared he was officially out of retirement so he could face off with mixed martial arts star McGregor. The two men will meet at the light-middleweight limit of 154 pounds, which bodes well for McGregor, who is now the UFC's 155-pound champion.

"People will think I'm insane and people will go mad about this but, mark my words, Conor McGregor is going to knock Floyd Mayweather out cold", he told Sky Sports.

Naturally, fighting on his home turf and in his own sport, Mayweather is a heavy favourite. Pulling off a knockout win, he said, would make McGregor "the biggest athlete on earth".

While many would have likely expected the negotiations between Mayweather and McGregor to be hard, both UFC boss Dana White and Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe stated that the negotiations went extremely smoothly. Still, the fans want this match thanks to the promotional ability of McGregor, who has been calling Mayweather out for years. It is not a fight which will please the boxing purists. I don't think McGregor has the boxing prowess to do anything with Mayweather. The fight has been rumoured to take place inside the MGM Garden arena in Las Vegas, which has been the host of fights such as Mike Tyson vs Evander Holyfield and even Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao. "I have no documents from the promoters requesting this fight and/or for this fight to be approved".

He is 11 years older than his opponent. "When you talk about a guy like Floyd Mayweather, the lawsuit if that ever happened..."

"Floyd Mayweather is 40 years old, he's always had problems with southpaws".

At this point, we have an early prediction from the bookmakers, which are saying that Floyd Mayweather is a favorite, but in an unusual match like this one, we have to add that there are no underdogs and favorites.
