Conor McGregor: ' I will beat Floyd Mayweather Jr in two rounds'

Chris Eubank Jr prepares to make his exit after a training session at Mayweather Boxing Club

However, the former has worn four-ounce gloves throughout his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) career, while the latter has worn eight-ounce gloves in 46 of his 49 fights.

UFC champion McGregor will step away from the octagon and into the ring to face unbeaten boxer Mayweather in Las Vegas.

Some local bars and restaurants in San Angelo will undoubtedly show the fight and there's a question as to whether the move to eight ounce gloves will draw a bigger crowd or not. "I believe first-round KO in 8-ounce gloves".

"The fact I can't follow through [as I can] in MMA and pound the head into the canvas and there's a ten-count in boxing, maybe I'll give him second round".

Till says the world of mixed martial arts will be behind McGregor on fight night but he has a hard time envisioning him stopping Mayweather improving his record to 50-0. Even though NSCA regulations require 10-ounce gloves for any bout above the welterweight limit of 147 pounds, an exception will be made for next week's 154-pound fight.

Where is the fight taking place?

"I do not see him absorbing the blows in the first few rounds, but we are ready for absolutely every scenario".

The fight did go on as scheduled and was not only successful in numbers but it was one of the best fights in UFC history.

Mayweather Jr and McGregor, along with their teams, are highly intelligent businessmen who know how to sell both a fight and themselves and, above all, how to make money.

McGregor and Mayweather have traded insults in the lead-up to next week's fight and the 29-year-old said he felt disrespected by the boxing community, but vowed to use that as a motivation in 10-days time.

"As Simba in The Lion King says: 'I laugh in the face of danger.' Throughout my career, the more risky opponent, I step up". "It's going to help McGregor because he's not a boxer", Miller added when asked about who the beneficiary is of the rule change.

Somehow, though, this fight is the one that continues to hold the media and public's attention, with people from all walks of life gathering for it.
