Watch: Conor McGregor boxing ability highlight reel

Some of Conor McGregor’s best moves have been put together in a video showing the Irishman’s potential to mix it with former pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The 27 year-old confirmed over the weekend that his next fight will be against Mayweather in late 2017 or early next year, which was then ratified by his prospective opponent just hours later to Showtime.

Whilst the general consensus is McGregor’s chances are limited and the fight is all about money, the clips of the two-weight UFC champion do show some considerable skills and elusiveness of his own.

Mayweather will also have been out of action for another two years and be 40 at the time of their contest, which could make the PPV offering all the more interesting when the pair finally trade blows.
