  • Floyd Mayweather Reveals Possible Location For Conor McGregor Fight

Conor McGregor has responded to Floyd Mayweather's latest jabs in which the boxer accused the UFC star of avoiding a potential super-fight.

McGregor, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, is now pursuing a boxing match with the five-weight world champion. How he made [Manny] Pacquiao look, and Pacquiao's one of the best boxers we have seen in a long time, I think that just proves the level he's at. "That's what the word is". That's what we're close to doing. "I'm going to stop Floyd and you're all gonna eat your words".

Then, reports emerged that the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas was booked for June 10 and UFC President Dana White also said that he would not stand in the way of McGregor should he want to get in the ring with Mayweather. It's not just a feeling, I know that I will. He is petrified. Would not you be? Because I do not know what to expect either.

"At the moment we have not signed any papers", Mayweather said during a press event following a boxing Masterclass.

"Look me in the eyes, 28 years of age, confident as a m-- f-- long, rangy, risky with every hand", added the motor-mouthed Irishman with conviction. I have been ready for a long time. The game's going to be in shock when I step in the ring. "Trust me on that".

However, McGregor, at age 28, is 12 years younger than Mayweather, so he has the youth element on his side.

The unbeaten Mayweather hasn't fought since out pointing Andre Berto in September 2015 and has toyed with the idea of taking on the Dubliner in a boxing match.

Mayweather is undefeated in boxing after 49 fights and will go down as the sport's greatest athlete.

Ever since this fight was first mooted, anyone who has even attempted to make the argument that McGregor has a chance of beating Mayweather has touted the MMA star's punching power, more specifically that which he possesses in his famous left hand. Twenty eight years of age, confident as a mother, long, rangy, risky with every hand.
