On Saturday night, Conor McGregor announced that he was ‘100%’ focused on booking a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather and that the next time he entered a combat arena, it would be through ropes.
Speaking with Ariel Helwani at an unprecedented pay-per-view event, Conor McGregor removed any doubt with regard to the legitimacy of reports linking him with a boxing bout against Floyd Mayweather, controversially stating that he would get the fight made, with or without the UFC’s involvement.
“I’m going to go to Las Vegas, get my boxing license and then we’ll see where the fuck Floyd’s at. I have my eyes on one thing and that’s Floyd Mayweather,” McGregor proclaimed.
That fight is more than being explored. That fight has been in the works for a while now. Why conquer one world when you can conquer two worlds.
We’ll figure it out the same way he and Manny figured it out.
With the Ali Act I believe we could put it together without the UFC. I believe I can make this fight without the UFC, but I think it’s smoother if we’re all involved. Everyone’s got to know their place. There’s Mayweather promotions, there’s the UFC and now there’s the newly-formed McGregor Promotions!
“If they let people fight in jiu-jitsu tournaments, they can let me box. Right now there’s something humongous that needs to be done and it doesn’t really involve them, even though they think it does. We’re getting there. It’s closing on it. This is the first billion dollar fight!
It’s the fight I want. I’ve got the reach. I’ve got the youth. You can’t prepare for a style like me. I can’t wait until we get a date and go and have a proper knock. Let’s get this done.
Although most dismiss the fight as a sideshow and believe that McGregor wouldn’t have the slightest chance of even competing with Mayweather, there have been some who believe that the SBG man’s sheer size could prove to be telling in the proposed bout.
On top of this, although McGregor’s boxing is no where near the level of Floyd’s, he is unquestionably one of the greatest stand up fighters in the UFC and now, one eager fan has compiled a phenomenal video to illustrate this exact point.
