McGregor: Floyd Bets on Himself, But Some Bets Should've Been Banned

At 40-years-old, he hasn't fought in two years, but is returning to the ring to face off against McGregor.

It's only the beginning of Conor McGregor's first fight week as a professional boxer and he's already given himself a promotion before Saturday's clash with Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor last fought on November 12, 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez three-minutes and four-seconds into the second round and took home the UFC lightweight title. "I love the fight game more so than the MMA type of stuff".

"He has messed up with eight ounce gloves, I think that's a big mistake". He is a future hall of famer and he will break the unofficial record of Rocky Marciano's 49-0 streak. Bookmakers have said that it will be the largest bet fight ever as there have been a large number of early tickets for McGregor to get the upset. "He's going to get tore up".

The market had opened with Mayweather at 1/20, but punters have lumped on McGregor, meaning the odds have shortened dramatically as the fight approaches, tumbling to 10/3. "I come out and bang people right away. I believe he'll be unconscious inside one round". "Remember this, the same way you give it, you have to take it".

"It's not going to be easy Conor", Mayweather told his opponent.

Experts say Kim Jong-Un doesn't want nuclear war
MASARU CHIBA, a Japanese salesman, said he hopes dialogue between the parties involved can head off a conflict. Moon says he believes dialogue with North Korea can happen when North Korea stops missile and nuclear tests.

McGregor was far less effusive in his compliments but after months of mercilessly attacking Mayweather said he welcomed the pause in hostilities.

"You should have left me over in that game where I'm from, that more ruthless game where we bounce heads off the canvas and drill them through the floor". I will go out and perform.

Earlier yesterday, Mayweather had taunted McGregor over his fitness, telling the United States website FightHype that he believed his opponent would struggle to make the 154-pound limit for Saturday's bout. He is responsible for some of the highest-selling pay-per-views in UFC history, and in his last fight, at UFC 205, McGregor set the all-time gate record at Madison Square Garden, taking in $17.7-million for his lightweight title fight against Eddie Alvarez.

The winners, McGregor boasted, invest in businesses that earn a sound profit, like his own deal with luxury clothing maker David August.

Given what he heard through the buildup, does Mayweather feel that McGregor doesn't respect his skills? Today, he said the undefeated boxer's gambling habits and bad decisions had ultimately brought them together.

"I've never missed weight in my life and it won't be happening this time", McGregor said. "If anyone then wants to come challenge me then it must be in my octagon, or whatever we come up with". When I fight, I wear what I want to wear and Hublot has the main spot on my trunks.
