The Notorious Conor McGregor is determined on making a case for himself as a boxer. This is why he’s so determined to make the Floyd Mayweather match a reality. Now that he’s reportedly at only a week from settling his case with the Nevada State Athletic Commission it’s looking more and more like reality.
The altercation in question happened when a friend of McGregor’s had a boxing match – Michael Conlan, a two-time Olympian, made his professional boxing debut Saturday night in New York. Conor McGregor walked out to the ring with him, and he cheered on as the Irish boxer won with a knockout in the third round.
“You’re the boxing guy? I’m the boxing guy!” McGregor screamed. “Watch me take over boxing, trust me on that. No one on this boxing game knows what’s coming.
“When I step in there, I will shock the whole godd*mn world. Trust me on that. Look me in the eyes. 28-years of age, confident as a motherf—er, long range, dangerous with every hand! Trust me, I will stop Floyd. You’re all going to eat your words. The whole world is going to eat their words!”
The whole incident ended after McGregor screamed one more time.
“I am boxing!”
Dana White recently said :
“I think it’s going to be a tough deal, because obviously [there are] a lot of egos involved in this deal and a lot of people, so that always makes it tougher. On the flip side, there’s so much money involved. I just don’t see how it doesn’t happen.”
