Conor McGregor: ' I will beat Floyd Mayweather Jr in two rounds'

The Irishman is just nine days away from facing the undefeated world champion in Las Vegas The Irishman is just nine days away from facing the undefeated world champion in Las Vegas

I've never seen anybody who believes in themselves more than this guy does and when he makes up his mind of what he's going to do, he absolutely 100 per cent believes it (and) lives it.

'The first time this thing started to get serious was (when) I was on ESPN (in January) and I threw out "Floyd I'll give you £25million". that's what started the negotiations, ' he said.

But, based on the fact that we have two separate disciplines (boxing and MMA) it's pretty much unprecedented and the fact we have two warriors that are willing to use eight ounce gloves, and in an effort to accommodate them because this is a bit of an anomaly because they are two separate disciplines. On Aug. 1, Mayweather announced on social media that he would have no trouble accommodating his opponent. Conor hits like a truck, so smaller gloves helps him big time.

Exactly one year ago today, August 17, 2016, all hell breaks loose at the UFC 202 pre-fight press conference in Las Vegas. "I think it'll be a good fight".

"For me, it's athlete versus athlete", McGregor said. "How often he's worn the gloves or any of that doesn't really factor into - I didn't even know that, for instance. If we were to get it on, I would most certainly dismantle him, also". His odds have improved to +325 with the latest news, via OddsShark, moving from +350 just a few days earlier.

Boxing contest's which take place at a weight higher than 147lbs are subject to wearing gloves which weigh 10 ounces, however both fighters did ask for 8 ounce gloves to be used which the NSAC agreed to Mayweather's and McGregor's requests.

Both parties have been keen to express confidence in their ability to come out on top and Conor McGregor was once again full of bravado about his prospects on one of the biggest talk shows in the United States on Wednesday night.

While promoting his upcoming interim featherweight title fight against Chad Mendes at UFC 189, McGregor made his first appearance on the Conan O'Brien Show.

Mayweather hasn't knocked out a fighter since he defeated Victor Ortiz six years ago with a controversial knockout.
