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.
The 27-year-old confirmed over the weekend that his next fight would be against Mayweather. The bout will happen in late 2017 or early next year.
Mayweather ratified his prospective opponent just hours later to Showtime.
Conor McGregor boxing skills
While the consensus is McGregor’s chances are limited, the fight is all about money. Clips of the two-weight UFC champion show some skills and elusiveness of his own.
However, it’s nowhere near enough to give Mayweather any challenge.
Mayweather will also have been out of action for another two years and be 40 at the time of their contest.
It could make the PPV offering all the more interesting when the pair finally trade blows. However, the press conferences could be more interesting than the fight.
If Conor McGregor lands a crack at Floyd Mayweather inside the boxing ring later this year, his earnings could skyrocket.
Predictions the fight could break Pay Per View records are not wide of the mark. Two massive personalities inside the ropes is intriguing to any fan of combat sports.
