We’re just two weeks away from the 12-round boxing showdown between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor, and both men are in Las Vegas making final preparations for Aug. 26.
Yesterday, the undefeated, 49-0 Mayweather put on a show for the media at the T-Mobile Arena, hitting the bag and showing off his skills in a 35-minute workout.
‘The Best Ever’ also fielded questions from reporters and gave his thoughts on McGregor’s chances in the fight.
According to Mayweather, a comfortable decision win would be a personal ‘victory’ for McGregor, so he plans to stop the Irishman inside 12 rounds.
Mayweather, 40, is the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world and arguably the greatest defensive boxer of all time. In his 49 professional fights, ‘Money’ has made almost all of his opponents look like they don’t belong in the ring with him, proving to be too slick for the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Canelo Alvarez.
McGregor, the current UFC lightweight champion, is one of the best boxers in MMA but has never stepped foot in the boxing ring for a professional fight. ‘The Notorious’ has an impressive KO ratio and has finished 13 of his opponents in the first round. McGregor will be giving a workout later today at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT and will answer questions in a media scrum.
Mayweather vs. McGregor takes place later this month, August 26, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
