Florian: ‘Conor to have 16 pounds on Floyd come fight night’

UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor will be a lot larger than Floyd “Money” Mayweather when the two fight in a boxing match.

Last week, both fighters officially agreed to compete in a boxing match. The two will compete at 154 pounds.

However, former UFC title challenger Kenny Florian claims McGregor will weigh over 170 pounds on fight night.

While most of the advantages in a boxing match go to Mayweather, McGregor will have a size advantage. According to Florian, McGregor will weight around 171 pounds, while Mayweather will barely hit 154 pounds.

Florian also says McGregor has about a 10 percent chance of defeating Mayweather because of his striking power.

Mayweather will be ending a two-year retirement to fight the UFC champion. He is currently undefeated with 49 wins, while McGregor will be making his professional boxing debut. However, McGregor is on a two-fight win streak in the UFC.

Mayweather vs. McGregor will take place Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
