It looks like Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather could well end up wearing 8-ounce gloves after all.

On Monday, Conor McGregor's former sparring partner unleashed a litany of insults and accusations as the MMA star prepares for the August 26 fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Floyd May weather (left) has denied reports he has already agreed to a bout with Conor McGregor. After opening as a 7-1 underdog, McGregor's odds have been cut in half and is now returning about $3.5 for every $1 bet on an outright win.

Recently, Mayweather sat down with ESPN's Stephen A Smith in an interview that covered a wide variety of topics.

The details are that "Mayweather and McGregor will meet in a super welterweight contest (154-pound limit), serving as the first time champions from boxing and MMA will meet in a sanctioned boxing match".

Tyson Fury is predicting a win for McGregor, stating that the younger, sharper man will bring more to the ring than Mayweather will have ever had to deal with before.

Was it a moment of brutal honesty and self reflection? What can fans expect from this fight in comparison to the fight with Manny Pacquiao two years ago? "So, if you look at everything on paper, it leans toward Conor McGregor".

The Brooklyn boxer explained the "knockdown" photo, saying McGregor pushed him over in order to catch his breath. It will be his first fight in almost two years, since a unanimous decision over Andre Berto in September 2015. He's mild-mannered and even humble, discussing a fight that could go either way. Mayweather, who retired back in September 2015, is coming back for one final fight.

Remember Mayweather's fight with Ricky Hatton all those years ago?

"I'm not what I used to be". "It's obvious I slipped somewhere".

He won 33 of his 35 fights, with 24 victories by knockout, but has no intention of following Mayweather's example by making a comeback.

McGregor vowed to stop Mayweather within four rounds during their uproarious promotional tour last month, but Aldo is among those who don't think even McGregor believes it. Aldo saw the posturing and insult-trading as something else entirely.

McGregor could make north of $100 million for the Mayweather fight, depending on the pay-per-view sales.
