Those were the words that McGregor threw on Friday night after the talks surrounding the potential Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather super fight, where many speculate that is has been confirmed and will be happening anytime soon. McGregor is, of course, in his usual vibe of overconfidence, saying that he can do business against one of the most renowned boxers in the world if the opportunity presents itself.
Why McGregor Is The Underdog In This Matchup
However, old for Joseph Duffy isn't quite convinced about McGregor's words. According to The 42, having won his UFC Fight Night 107 contest against Reza Madadi in London on Saturday night appeared on this week's episode of MMA hour and claimed that McGregor is the underdog in this matchup.
The 29-year-old previously beat McGregor way back in November of 2010, and while he doesn't consider writing him off completely, he feels that Mayweather most definitely has the upper hand. Duffy believes that in every combat sport, "there will always be a puncher's chance, no matter what; whether it be in MMA or boxing."
Duffy also said that aside from McGregor entering a completely new combat medium, he also states that Floyd Mayweather is already used to being in the ring with bigger hitters than Conor. He believes that boxer hit harder than any other combat sport.
According to MMA Fighting, Duffy would later on say that in terms of the projected scorecards, he really won't give McGregor a chance. "I really feel like it's going to be a landslide towards Floyd," Duffy said.
