McGregor - the biggest name in mixed martial arts (MMA) - will switch sports to box Mayweather next month, with the American having never lost a fight during his 21 year career. I'm disappointed as a society because we've come to accept this.
The pair finished their four-day promotional tour on Friday with a heated exchange at Wembley where McGregor referred to Mayweather as a 'stupid, baldy t***'. "I'm the type of person, I have to visually see it with my own eyes".
Swift, firm denial from McGregor's camp..
In an interview with Villainfy Media, Vargas said: "I heard that they tried Bradley Wheeler but he knocked him out". Rios said not only has he never even sparred McGregor, the two have never even met.
"I love them both, Mayweather's brains - he's the best fighter of our generation - and McGregor is so amusing and witty and he backs it up in the ring", Fowler told Sky Sports News.
It could be that the story is just a rumor, but Jesse Vargas has really no reason to make up such a story, and it is true that news in the boxing world does travel fast. I've been getting text messages and calls about this. 'My phone's been blowing up.
Former boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi has confirmed that he will be working with McGregor as he gets set for the fight, which is less than six weeks away.
He told Fight Hype: "Me and Jesse Vargas are in communication".
Rios then added, "If he got knocked out in sparring with 14oz gloves, Imagine with 8oz gloves, 10oz gloves".
Mayweather-Pacquiao set a record with 4.6 million PPV buys, and some estimates indicate that Mayweather-McGregor could surpass five million buys.
