Mayweather vs. McGregor Simmers in Eclipse Shadow

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.

McGregor built his reputation as one of the leading figures in the UFC, but few within the boxing community give him any chance of even testing an opponent who is 40 and has been inactive for nearly two years.

Boxer Bomber - who succeeded in setting up a fight with British MMA pioneer Michael Bisping on the back of the billion-dollar August 26 show - backs the Money Man.

A matchup that will see Irishman McGregor attempt to cross over from the sport of mixed martial arts and make his pro boxing debut against Mayweather.

Dana White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), followed McGregor on the conference call and predicted the fight could even threaten the reported US$600 million (S$819 million) haul from the Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao showdown in 2015.

In any case, the NSAC on Wednesday voted unanimously in favor of the fight taking place in 8-ounce gloves - a one-time exception to its rules, ESPN said.

"I really want McGregor to win but if I have to say my own opinion, I don't think he will win". "They took both fighters requests into consideration and I'm very happy with it". I am coming up in weight on the gloves. "I look forward to coming back and continuing where I left off".

McGregor added that his gruelling preparations for the fight would enable him to triumph, no matter how the fight develops.

The undefeated Mayweather takes on on MMA star McGregor, making his professional boxing debut, in a much-hyped meeting between the two codes' biggest stars at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena next Saturday. "He's a lot younger, so youth is on his side".
