Bob Arum on McGregor-Mayweather: 'It's Not a Fight For Christ's Sake'

He also said McGregor has a legitimate chance to beat Mayweather if he can find a way to make the boxer lower his defenses.

"Even when I was away from the sport for two years, still in boxing all you hear is Floyd Mayweather and in MMA you hear Conor McGregor". And I'm in my 40s.

There's only one Conor McGregor, and there's no fighter better And he's going to knock out Floyd Mayweather So Floyd watch out cos the Irish are coming You can talk all you want, buy you'll do nothin!

But the 40-year-old has struck a different tone only weeks out from the fight during an interview with ESPN's Stephen A. Smith.

While the series is about access to the two fighters, McGregor cut it off at the most interesting moment. Our regulations require 10-ounce gloves, but I won't say that there's no negotiations. "I just said I'm not the same Floyd Mayweather I once was".

Bennett told Sky Sports: 'Mayweather's team has, and McGregor's team are in the process [of submitting a request]'.

Because Mayweather is an older fighter, he noted his knockout power has decreased. It's obvious I'm slipping a little bit to even let a fighter like that go the distance with me. "So much more hittable that I was putting more weight on my shots and sitting down more on my shots, and of course, the body shots started to affect him more and more. Something has taken a toll on my career".

Starting fast and hard could be an indication of what McGregor plans to do against Mayweather at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, later this month.

"I'm not going to say whether it was a KO or a knockdown or a push because I don't know".

"(Mayweather) is just a wizard when it comes to boxing, the thing is Conor's a way bigger guy, he's younger, he's way stronger", Rogan said. They weren't pleased with that.
