The lead-up to the highly anticipated boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0) and Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA) should be extremely entertaining.
Nothing has been signed as of yet, but mark my words ... this fight will happen before the end of 2017. The money generated from it will be enough to make both fighters considerably more wealthy and satisfy the UFC and whichever network gets the rights to broadcast it via pay-per-view.
Mystic Mac was at Madison Square Garden on Friday, March 17, to watch the Michael Conlan-Tim Ibarra boxing match. The 28-year old UFC Lightweight Champion spotted ESPN boxing writer Dan Rafael ringside and proceeded to chew his ear off about how he would emerge the victor against Money May.
"You're the boxing guy? I'm the boxing guy. Watch me takeover boxing ... trust me on that," said an animated McGregor. "No one in this boxing game knows what's going on. Trust me on that. I'm gonna shock the whole goddamn world. Trust me on that!
"Look me in the eyes! 28-years of age, confident as a motherf*cker. Long range, dangerous with every hand. Trust me, I'm gonna stop Floyd. You're all gonna eat your words. The whole world is gonna eat their words!"
I predict Floyd will stop McGregor within six rounds. Who are you picking?
