When it was announced last week that Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor had agreed to fight on August 26, the venue was originally reported to be the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Pacquiao knows a little something about facing Mayweather in a much-hyped fight, though his 2015 bout against Floyd was hardly the sideshow Mayweather-McGregor figures to be.
Last week, McGregor tweeted out a picture of himself standing in front of a mural showing him knocking out Mayweather with a thunderous left hand to the chin.
“I can say Floyd Mayweather will win because the fight is in boxing, not an MMA fight”, Pacquiao told reporters in a June 19 interview from Brisbane as he readied himself for a fight with Austrian boxer Jeff Horn.
Conor McGregor has been given little chance against Floyd Mayweather for the August 26 fight between a UFC star and boxing legend.
The UFC star’s head coach insists McGregor is at his most unsafe when people write him off. He said that McGregor was going to knock out Mayweather in the first 35 seconds.
“McGregor has no chance in this fight”, Pac-Man said Monday, per Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports. “I mean, both fighters are moving around”. However, Pacquiao isn’t the only boxer who gave Mayweather the edge against McGregor.
Kavanagh is expecting to see McGregor stun the combat sports world.
“Obviously, we’re talking about one of boxing’s all-time greatest, but there’s also some openings ” added Kavanagh. I’m really seeing that spirit lit up in the team. The fight is set to take place in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena.
