The Floyd Mayweather’s super-fight with Conor McGregor has been going on since they last met at the press conference, now a boxer claims that Conor was knocked out in a sparring session in preparation for his Floyd Mayweather showdown. Read the article to know more about the story.
Meet under boxing rules
Almost two years of verbal jousting finally came to a head last month when it was announced that the pair would meet under boxing rules to settle their differences.
At the conclusion of their press conference.
Mayweather and McGregor faced off, with UFC President Dana White (centre) forced to separate them, ‘On August 26, this man will be unconscious, he’s too small, he’s too frail,’ McGregor taunted. But McGregor’s weak words did not phase the top boxing champion, who praised his opponent McGregor for promoting the multi-million dollar fight.
The Notorious will fight.
Mayweather and McGregor will face off in a boxing match on August 26, in what many have labelled a complete mismatch. If you remember in the last conference they met the 28 year old Irish born fighter had the biggest insult prepared for 40 years old Mayweather, hidden in plain sight with McGregor wearing a suit complete with pin stripes containing the words ‘F**K YOU’ throughout the press call.
According to boxer Jessie Vargas.
It was reported that McGregor’s former sparring partner – Chris van Heerden – claimed the Irishman looked vulnerable and open to several counter shots in their sessions, which is bad news if Conor wants to win the match!
The UFC superstar.
It also was reported that the UFC superstar Conor McGregor was allegedly knocked to the canvas in training. Was he that easy to beat? Lets find out…
Vargas revealed that.
According to boxer Jessie Vargas during an interview with Villainfy Media revealed his thoughts saying, on the upcoming bout, mentioning rumours of McGregor’s KO he said, “Conor has 1% – maybe 0.5% chance of winning, he got knocked out in sparring already. The boxing world is small, it’s a small circle. I heard they tried Brandon Rios but he knocked him out, so they had to push him away.”
His inexperience in the ring.
The 29-year-old Irish champ Conor McGregor hasn’t been afraid to trash talk Mayweather during their world tour like the one he did during the last conference they met!
Pretending to spank the boxer…
Cono being an arrogant inexperienced boxer was filmed pretending to spank the boxer as he followed him around the stage at Wembley stadium. The fight is expected to be the most lucrative in combat sports history also it is suggested that sales will eclipse the $455m (£351m) generated by Mayweather’s showdown with Manny Pacquiao in 2015.
