McGregor: I'm Confident I'll Walk Through Mayweather's Shots

Floyd Mayweather Jr. may be the best defensive fighter boxing has ever seen, but he is going on the offensive against Conor McGregor in their Aug. 26 fight.

Mayweather is a defensive fighter in the style of former and one of the original heavyweight champions, James J. Corbett. He is quicker and more precise than anyone else in the boxing world so he doesn't have to engage with anyone. He can get in, land his shots, and get out before the other fighter knows what hit him.

While he says he will come after McGregor later this month, he will still be on his guard as he always is. Mayweather is one win away from overtaking former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano as the winningest undefeated fighter in boxing history, and he will remind everyone of that when he steps in the ring with the MMA champion.

McGregor is confident of a big upset victory.

Now that both fighters were given permission to use 8-ounce gloves, McGregor believes that he will knock Mayweather out even quicker.

And he doesn't fear any of the punches that Mayweather will release with the new glove size. Mayweather has not had a clear knockout victory in a decade - since he knocked out Ricky Hatton in the fall of 2007.

“I will go in and dismantle him at his own game. That’s what a true martial artist can do, they can adapt under any circumstance. Bruce Lee said, ‘be like water,’ and when the water enters a cup, it becomes the cup. That’s the philosophy I’m going into this contest. It doesn’t matter what rule set or stipulations they try and put on me, I can adapt and overcome any situation. And that’s what I will do on Aug. 26. I’m feeling very confident I can walk through any shot and break him down,” McGregor said.

Precision and speed are a dangerous combination... Connor will soon find that out for himself.
