“If you’re asking would I like to fight Floyd Mayweather, I mean, who would not like to dance around the ring for $180m?” Conor McGregor replied to a playful question from late-night host Conan O’Brien, in July 2015, on whether he would ever be tempted into switching sports. “I would certainly box him if the opportunity arose,” he smiled. “Most certainly.”
The opportunity has not just arisen, but skyrocketed. August 26th 2017 will see McGregor take on boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the biggest fight of the century.
Conor Anthony McGregor (AKA Conor McGregor) is one of the most famous athletes in the world. The Irishman's 'regular' day job is as an professional mixed martial artist, currently the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)'s Lightweight Champion, although the impending fight with Mayweather sees him swap the Octagon for the boxing ring, changing disciplines and breaking records as he squares up to the Olympian in one of the most talked about fights of all time.
Thanks to his incredible confidence, expert trash talk skills, and, of course, PR know-how, it's difficult to escape McGregor's influence, not only in the UFC, but in the world of sport as a whole. When he fights, people know about it - mostly through his cunning pre-fight publicity tactics, but also because he always puts on an incredible fight. The man can fight - and he's not afraid to tell you and his opponents exactly that.
