Watch: McGregor fights Mayweather in Tyson’s Punch-Out remake
Conor McGregor’s dream to land a fight with Floyd Mayweather has come true, at least that is, in a remake of the classic Nintendo game of Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out.
Dream-maker Adam Arnali has put together a spoof of what would happen in a cross-codes clash between the pair, with an ending that would cause quite a stir in reality.
Arnali’s tag-line for the two-minute-plus video reads: “In an epic Dream Fight with Nintendo’s Mike Tyson’s Punch Out 8bit Graphics, Floyd Mayweather challenges Conor McGregor to a boxing death match for 100 million dollars a piece. Who would win in this Dream bout? Watch to find out!!!”
In the clip, McGregor and Mayweather go at it for three rounds of the 1987 console hit as the Irishman initially fails to work out the former boxing pound for pound king’s move and grab tactics.
The UFC champion quickly realizes what he needs to do in order to get the win, but may have to revert to his own method of fighting to do so with comical results.
