McGregor: Floyd Mayweather is ‘scared’ of fighting me
Conor McGregor
Conor McGregor has said Floyd Mayweather is “scared” in the build-up to their multi-million dollar fight on 26 August in Las Vegas.
Mayweather, 40, said on Thursday that the bout “won’t go the distance”.
Speaking at a media workout on Friday, McGregor, 29, said: “You know what I heard him say yesterday? Nothing. I saw a man scared... I saw a man trying to talk himself out of it.
“I’m preparing to win, and to win in devastating fashion.”
UFC lightweight champion McGregor, who has never boxed professionally, is due to face Mayweather in a 12-round super welterweight bout that could earn both men about $100m.
Mayweather, who retired in 2015 with an unblemished 49-0 record, has beaten boxers such as Ricky Hatton, Manny Pacquiao and Oscar De La Hoya during his professional career and is aiming to surpass 1950s heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano’s mark and move to 50-0.
