Last night as a guest at the pro debut of Irish Olympic boxer Michael Conlan in New York, UFC superstar Conor McGregor exploded at ESPN boxing writer Dan Rafael about the potential superfight between himself and Floyd Mayweather Jr.
You’re the boxing guy? I’m the boxing guy. Watch me take over boxing,”. “Trust me on that. No one in this boxing game knows what’s coming. Trust me on that. When I step in there, I’m going to shock the whole goddamn world. Trust me on that. Look me in the eyes. Twenty-eight years of age, confident as a motherf*cker, long, rangy, dangerous with every hand. Trust me, I’m going to stop Floyd and you’re all going to eat your words. The whole world is going to eat their words.”
McGregor went out to confirm that he’s close to signing a fight with Mayweather.
McGregor’s rant comes less than a day after UFC president Dana White conceded that he thinks the fight is going to happen
