It just a little over two months, the UFC Lightweight Champion in Conor McGregor is boxing Floyd Mayweather.
According to McGregor’s longtime boxing coach in Owen Roddy, the MMA superstar is going to walk away victorious this August.
“I have no doubt in my mind he’s gonna do it,” Roddy said on The MMA Hour. “I think it's gonna be one of the most insane nights ever.”
Mayweather holds a record of 49-0-0 as a professional boxer, while McGregor has no professional boxing experience at all.
Not only does Roddy believe that McGregor is going to get the win, but the boxing coach feels that McGregor is getting the knockout.
“I think he’s gonna put him away,” Roddy said. “I think he’s gonna KO him. I think it’ll take a couple of rounds. And I know my phone is about to explode, I’m sure. But look, Conor does these things. He does these exceptional things all the time. If he says he’s gonna go in and knock him out, I think he’s gonna go in and knock him out.”
Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather takes place on Saturday, August 26 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
