McGregor aiming to 'put away' Mayweather in 10 seconds

McGregor aiming to 'put away' Mayweather in 10 seconds

The NSAC voted unanimously in favour of Byrd's appointment, for a fight that is tipped to become one of the most lucrative in the history of combat sports.

As expected, Mayweather remains the favorite.

"So for McGregor to be putting MMA in the spotlight like he is - it is just unbelievable".

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.

"Duh", laughed McGregor. "If you're asking would I like to fight Floyd Mayweather - I mean, who would not like to dance around the ring for $180 million?"

The undefeated champion is -500 favourite with USA sportsbooks and available at around the 2-9 mark in the United Kingdom at Unibet and Bet365, while most bookmakers are predicting that the fight will finish between the ninth and twelfth round. Accordingly, "all fighters over 147 pounds must wear 10-ounce gloves". In addition, Conor has limited boxing experience himself.

The Notorious also spoke of adjustments in his training regime to cope with a 12-round fight, a perceived advantage over Mayweather in terms of pace and his desire to "go straightforward and put him (Mayweather) away" rather than dancing around the ring in Las Vegas.

"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. So I believe I will paint pictures in there that he has never seen or the boxing community has never seen before and that will cause him big trouble", said the Irishman.

8 News Now Sports anchor Ron Futrell has the story on the mega-fight ruling.

"I think Mayweather will win", Till said.

We want to take him seriously but when someone is dressed like a dodgy uncle in the '80s selling used vehicle parts on the side for an extra pit of cash, it's hard to hear anything they say.

"That's it in a nutshell, you've got pros and cons on both sides", he said. "I look forward to going back and continuing where I left off". Will I be watching the fight? Yes.

"His views ... he went public on what he thought the fight was", McGregor told reporters.

"He's a lot younger".
