Conor’s Irish Boxing Teammate Makes Shocking Prediction — Picks Mayweather To Beat His Boy

One of UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor’s boxing teammates in Ireland doesn’t think McGregor can defeat Floyd “Money” Mayweather.

In a recent interview, Irish boxer Michael Conlan gave his prediction for the upcoming boxing match between Mayweather and McGregor. Conlan wants McGregor to win, but he thinks defeating Mayweather is almost impossible.

“I hope Conor wins, but I have a feeling Floyd is going to win,” Conlan said. “With Conor, you always have to be surprised because he always ends up doing something that no one expects.

“If he pulls off the impossible, it won’t be anything strange to him. He believes 100 percent that he is going to win this. I want to back him, but it’s a hard one. It’s almost an impossible task.”

Mayweather vs. McGregor will take place Saturday, August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Showtime Sports will air the fight live via pay-per-view.
