The build up to the bout continues, it’s nine days left to the anticipated bout between Conor Macgregor and Floyd Mayweather.
The Irishman has once said that Mayweather is “scared” of him, now he has come out to say the American boxer won’t last two rounds in encounter coming up in Las Vegas, on August 26.
Conor McGregor is confident he will beat Floyd Mayweather in two rounds after the use of 8oz gloves was approved for the contest. The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NAC) confirmed a one-off rule change to drop the glove size from 10oz.
“I don’t believe with the new gloves he makes it out of the second round,” said UFC champion McGregor, 29.
“Part of me kind of wants to show some skill and dismantle him but I do not see him absorbing the blows.”
“I am ready to go to war for 12 rounds and I am also ready to put him away in seconds,” he added. “There is no way in hell I am not prepared to fight in the deepest of trenches.”
