Floyd Mayweather

The UFC star has remained confident of taking over boxing as he sets his sights on becoming the first athlete to defeat the American boxing great. He's at his physical prime, even though he hasn't fought (UFC or otherwise) since he defeated Eddie Alvarez in November of a year ago. He even announced that he was officially coming out of retirement to fight McGregor.

"September is what I'm thinking - that's what the word is, that's what we're close to doing", Conor McGregor told the Los Angeles Times of the date for his potential fight with Floyd Mayweather. That's what the word is.

"We're very close to inking it, I'm not going to say no more, we're very close that's it". Trust me, I'm going to stop Floyd and you're all going to eat your words'. "I flew to Las Vegas to have talks with Floyd and then he retired", McGregor said, as quoted by the MMAMania.

"He just doesn't want to see me", he continued. No one knows what to expect with me, and they shouldn't.

That will be easier said than done, obviously, as Mayweather is 49-0 in his legendary boxing career. But that hasn't affected McGregor's confidence, and the UFC lightweight champion believes he has the tools to hand Mayweather his first-ever loss.
