Conor McGregor: Floyd Mayweather in his worst shape ever

Conor McGregor: Floyd Mayweather in his worst shape ever”

Pakistan's very own boxing champion Muhammad Waseem believes the fight between Floyd Mayweather and the UFC champion Connor McGregor is going to be a one-sided affair.

There will be no titles on the line, only a gaudy "Money Belt" with a strap made from crocodile leather and featuring 24 karat gold, 3,360 diamonds along with sapphires and emeralds, but much will be riding on the result.

Today (Aug. 26) two men will beat the crap out of each other and a bunch of other (mostly) men will win or lose a lot of money depending on who beat more crap out of whom. He's not a bull in a china shop by any stretch of the imagination, but if his only chance according to the experts is to bum rush Mayweather and catch him early, will he change his strategy and go for it all?

But I'll give Mayweather's interest and dedication in boxing the benefit of the doubt here, and say he's going to underline his belief that his sport is the king of combat sports.

Mayweather has repeatedly insisted Saturday's fight will be the last of his decorated career, and despite the likelihood his ability will make their match-up highly non-competitive, his impressive shape suggests he has thoroughly prepared. And as McGregor has kept dominating opponents in the UFC, his Boston Irish fan base has grown.

But Trudeau doesn't think it's going to be a spectacular fight to watch.

"Even I can defeat Mcgregor in boxing", said Waseem. "I don't see him lasting two rounds, I feel I will have the decision to end it inside one".

Aside from McGregor's cocky assurances there is little in the tale of the tape to tip an upset.

They might be the only advantages the mixed martial arts champion will have in Saturday's much anticipated clash against the undefeated Mayweather, who tipped the scales at 149.5 pounds, well under McGregor's 153.

McGregor weighed in three-and-a-half pounds heavier than Mayweather on Friday night ahead of his first professional bout, coming against one of boxing's all-time greats.

As aggressive in the ring as he is outside it, the 29-year-old Irishman will have youth and power on his side. "After 21 years I've been hit with everything and I'm still right here".
