Justin Bieber doesn't think Floyd Mayweather will knock out Conor McGregor

Justin Bieber doesn't think Floyd Mayweather will knock out Conor McGregor”

The Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight is set to break revenue and broadcasting records, according to Dana White, the president of the UFC, and the co-president of the company organising the fight promotion.

Boxing champ Floyd Mayweather says he's not only going to defeat UFC lightweight star Conor McGregor on August 26, but will walk away with $300 million or "better" for the 36-minute fight - if it lasts all 12 rounds - which equates to about $8.3 million per minute.

McGregor addressed Paulie Malignaggi's comments again, simply saying that the former champion got his "a** whipped" and if he wants to fight he would be more than willing to take him on. Only this time, instead of bigging up McGregor's abilities, he was talking shit about the fighter and his team.

Finally, McGregor feels boxing experts have been very dismissive of his chances in the ring and he fully intends to open their eyes.

Mayweather made a surprising admission on The Jimmy Kimmel Live! show earlier this week, when he said he would consider a rematch with McGregor inside the Octagon, despite having no prior experience in the sport of mixed martial arts. But now that the gloves are eight ounces, I don't believe he makes it out of the second round.

Who will win: the undefeated Mayweather or the wild card McGregor?

"My whole life has been about boxing and about fitness, and now I'm taking everything I developed and bringing it into the fitness market", Mayweather said in a media release provided to Club Industry. It's light-hearted. I don't take it personal.

"He's a lot younger".

Online ticket exchange StubHub has said that it had sold four times more tickets for the Mayweather-Pacquiao at the same stage, and at a price per ticket that was nearly $1,000 greater on average than for the Mayweather-McGregor clash. And I'm in my 40s.

You've been warned, McGregor imitators.
