Floyd Mayweather on Conor McGregor: 'He's a hell of a competitor'

Register columnist Chip Malafronte doesn’t see any good reason to fork over money to watch Floyd Maywether fight UFC star Conor McGregor

But while the fight between the 49-0 boxing star and current UFC lightweight champion will be historic in nature, Sulaiman seems to believe Mayweather has the clear path to victory. People who do two different things, and they're going to box, in a boxing ring, with boxing rules.

Danis spoke to TMZ Sports recently and gave his own insight into the controversial match-up as well as his own thoughts on McGregor's fighting future in the UFC.

Unsurprisingly, the tickets sold out in seconds and fans were left with the sky-high prices on third party sites like TicketOffice and StubHub to get a seat in the MGM Grand for the fight.

They'll use those gifts to ratchet up the hype during a hot summer culminating in their desert showdown. He's the one that they're all trying to get a fight with in boxing and in MMA. So even if McGregor loses, he still wins. McGregor rapidly rose from obscurity to multi-division UFC dominance only because he coupled his mixed martial arts skills with attention-grabbing soundbites.

"McGregor is too inexperienced at boxing", he reasoned.

Asked about financial details of the fight, Mayweather said both sides are pleased.

After the announcement of the "mega-fight" between the Irishman and the unbeaten American, the South African released footage of his training sessions with McGregor. Not only has he never been defeated or knocked out, but "Money" has never been knocked down, nor has he ever seriously been hurt inside the squared circle, so it'd be hard to imagine a fighter making his professional debut knocking him out.

"We're really excited. She's a tremendous talent and we're very glad to welcome her into the Mayweather Promotions stable". And the people who are involved in Mayweather vs. McGregor wanted to blunt that, hurt it, hurt the buyrate.

It is not like Floyd has been spoon-fed opponents either, as most of Mayweather's fights have come against top tier fighters, as well as fellow and former champions.
