Mayweather: I Can't Overlook McGregor, I'm Facing a Warrior

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Floyd Mayweather says it will be a "victory" for Conor McGregor if their lucrative grudge match goes the distance in Las Vegas.

Most boxing experts are predicting five-weight world champion Mayweather will coast to victory against UFC star McGregor, who is making his professional debut in the squared circle.

Indeed, it would be viewed by many as a moral victory for the big-talking Irishman, the first man to hold belts in two weight divisions at the same time in UFC, if he can see the fight through to the end.

And that is a view shared by Mayweather, who will take his career record to 50-0 with victory at the T-Mobile Arena on August 26.

"He believes it's not going past four [rounds] and I believe that it's not going to go the distance at all," Mayweather told reports at his media workout.

"He feels one way, I feel another way, we are both confident in our skills and we'll just have to see. It is a victory for him. If it goes the distance, it's a victory for him - in my eyes also."

While McGregor is a huge underdog, Mayweather is not looking past him. He expects a very tough outing.

"This isn't just a fight; this is an event. We both owe the fans and everyone tuning in a lot of excitement. That's what we're there to give them. I know I'm going to face a warrior. It's not for me to worry about what he does on a day-to-day basis. I have to worry about what I have to go out there and do. I have to execute the game plan. I'm not going to overlook him. That's why I'm in here working extremely hard," Mayweather said.

The Irish are not known for winning much at all and Conor will disappoint bigtime. Floyd embarrasses the inept clumsy Conor and humiliates the Irish Conor .Floyd by KO.
