Malignaggi Says McGregor Can't Progress Due To Arrogance

Carl Froch- cropped Party Poker 'Massive pressure' on Mayweather Froch claims

And I'm in my 40s.

The most anticipated boxing event in recent history between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is set to become the biggest ever in terms of gambling, with over £10m already wagered by the end of July.

It has been confirmed that two world title fights will take place beforehand with Gervonta Davis (18-0) defending his IBF junior lightweight world championship title against the undefeated Francesco Fonseca (19-0-1).

However, Mayweather - whose last fight was a win over Andre Berto in September 2015 - has conceded that McGregor, 29, has age and height on his side.

"I'm not the same fighter I was two years ago".

But Froch, who will be ringside at Vegas on August 26, admits he fears that Mayweather's two-year break from the sport could render him a shell of the fighter he once was. "I lost a step", Mayweather said. What happens? Any damn thing can happen in a fight.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER and Conor McGregor travelled to Los Angeles, Toronto, New York and London ahead of their historic bout - here are some of the best photos from their press tour. Given the hype surrounding the bout, fans were upset. "But I'm strong, smart, patient and come August 26, I'm the same person - strong, smart, patient - and the same way he called us monkeys, I'm going to see if he says that August 26".

The betting odds for McGregor continue to improve, which means the public is placing more and more money on him.

"He was talking to Mayweather's guys, talking to pro boxers and doing interviews - what did he think was going to happen?" The fight drew somewhere between 400,000 and 550,000 PPV buys.

Given McGregor has been beaten in the Octagon, his titles are impressive but he has been beaten, so the tension is real, the match is on, and the pounds-for-pounds will be pounding each other into the dust.

"And somewhat trying to steal the stage from Floyd just with his antics and get Floyd into a mind-game situation, have him pulling some type of mistakes and then catch [Mayweather] with a big shot".

McGregor will also make the same request and Bennett explained that as far as he knew, the NAC had never been asked to change the rules for a 154lbs fight. He also knows he'll be a ideal 50-0 when he retires for a third time, whether he's willing to admit it or not.
