McGregor prepares for big bout with Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather Taken to Beat Conor McGregor in Bettor's $880k Wager

It follows a similar availability from Mayweather on Thursday, in which Mayweather spoke confidently about the prospect that he would knock out McGregor - even though he hasn't won a fight by knockout since 2011.

"We'll see where it goes", he said.

Floyd Mayweather is confident his fight with Conor McGregor will meet all of its financial expectations including a sellout crowd at T-Mobile Arena when the two meet on August 26 in Las Vegas.

Tickets for Mayweather-McGregor range from $1,600 to $17,878 and remain available on TicketMaster. The pay-per-view numbers are going to be unbelievable and we will have a sold-out crowd. "I'm not anxious about that".

The fight is expected to do record business, both at the gate and on PPV.

McGregor is used to wearing four-ounce gloves with open fingers, but he obviously can't use that in boxing. "You want to know what they like to eat, what they're doing when they're not in camp", said the undefeated 40-year-old.

"I never said he's going to beat me", Mayweather said. But I'm saying IQ is on my side, experience is on my side, and I think just fighting knowledge is on my side.

In addition, McGregor is an inch taller than Mayweather and has a two-inch reach advantage as well.

WBA light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly will defend his title against Sweden's Badou Jack, who is promoted by Mayweather, on the undercard of the Las Vegas bout, event organisers announced on Thursday.

I'm sure McGregor will be after he looks at his bank statement.
