UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor is looking to get his first win as a professional boxer when he faces Floyd Mayweather on August 26.
However, the lightweight champion believes that he has already instilled a sense of fear into the entire boxing community.
“No one knows what’s coming, and that’s why there’s a lot of fear in the boxing community and in his camp,’’ McGregor said at a media event. “They don’t know what to expect. I’m going to come out a lot different.’ I am fighting. He’s boxing. The two worlds collide.’’
While McGregor is making his professional boxing debut at the event, the bout will serve as the fiftieth in Mayweather’s career. McGregor is also a firm believer that when he is in the ring with Mayweather, that he is going to run through the boxing great.
“There’s some psychological warfare going on,’’ McGregor said. “But at the end of the day, I’m just looking at him and I’m looking at his little frame and knowing that I’m going to run through that. Look, this is easy. No one’s kicking me, no one’s elbowing me, no one’s trying to choke me. You know what I mean?’’
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.
