What do you make of White's comments, and are you giving McGregor any chance of spoiling Mayweather's return party? Despite the jaw-dropping numbers, the men behind the McGregor-Mayweather super fight are confident the record can be broken.
"Of course, why not?" "He is absolutely 100 percent positive that he wins this fight", White told ESPN.
Former multi-division world champion Mayweather fought and defeated wrestling giant Big Show in a No Disqualification wrestling match at Wrestlemania XXIV in March 2008.
"People will think I'm insane and people will go mad about this but, mark my words, Conor McGregor is going to knock Floyd Mayweather out cold", he told Sky Sports. "It's going to be a tremendous event". Mayweather Promotions will present the all boxing event and will air exclusively on Showtime pay-per-view.
"I don't believe it can ruin boxing at all". There are definite positives and negatives to this one, whether you are a fan of boxing, MMA or both. "We've actually tapped into the audience that really doesn't follow either sport". He has boxing training, but has never faced anyone with the speed of Mayweather.
Now that McGregor vs. Mayweather is happening, it is being reported that some very odd conditions have been added to McGregor's contract.
The speculation surrounding a match, between UFC star Conor McGregor and boxer Floyd Mayweather has been raging for months. Oscar De La Hoya has called it a farce and said it will harm boxing regardless of the result. It became this thing were it was so impossible to get tickets, that after you already paid for them, that people started canceling their rooms and all kind of things. "In the conversation that I had with him, he's fired up for this fight and he's excited to fight again and defend his title by the end of the year". With a flawless record of 49-0, one win away from breaking Rocky Marciano's record to move to an unprecedented 50-0, Mayweather announced his retirement from boxing after his decision victory over Andre Berto in September 2015.
