McGregor: There is A lot of Fear in The Boxing Community!

By Chisanga Malata, courtesy of The Daily Star

CONOR MCGREGOR is adamant he will shock the boxing world.

On August 26, the reigning UFC lightweight champion will take on Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match.

Mayweather vs. McGregor, a fight which just a few short months ago seemed like a pipe dream, takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

McGregor, 29, will enter his bout with 40-year-old Mayweather having never set foot inside the boxing ring.

His lack of pro boxing experience has led many to predict an easy victory for 'Money' Mayweather, who came out of retirement in March.

McGregor is well aware of what his detractors' thoughts on his chances of becoming the first man to beat Mayweather.

And in a media scrum after the second press conference of the pair's international tour, Ireland's first UFC belt holder sent a chilling message to all his doubters, particularly those in the boxing world.

“No one knows what’s coming, and that’s why there’s a lot of fear in the boxing community and in his camp," he said.

"They don’t know what to expect. I’m going to come out a lot different. I am fighting. He’s boxing. The two worlds collide.”

While Mayweather has seen and done it all in the boxing ring, McGregor believes the former five-weight world champion has never encountered an opponent like himself.

“I just don’t think he’s ever seen anything like this,’’ a fired up McGregor added.

“I don’t think the boxing world has ever seen this kind of power, this kind of velocity, this type of movement. These attacks are different.

“Until you’ve seen the traditional martial arts style against a flat-footed style like boxing, you can’t compare. “I have the footwork advantage by a mile.”

LOL @ those mocking Conor's footwork. How did those 47 opponents with 'traditional' footwork do against Floyd again? Fact is if Conor could wave a magic wand and acquire the footwork of a pro boxer it would only put him…

[QUOTE=kafkod;17868920]Hey peanut brain, whatever the result of GGG vs Canelo, it won't alter the fact that Canelo won the WBC MW title at a catchweight and stalled for 2 years, until GGG had turned 35, before finally, at last, agreeing…
