Conor McGregor has vowed to knockout undefeated Floyd Mayweather “inside four rounds” of their August 26 mega bout in Las Vegas.
The fighters faced off last night for the first time at a press conference in Los Angeles to kick off the bout’s promotional tour.
Addressing the press in front of 11,000 fans at the Staples Center, McGregor said: “There’s no other way about it. His little legs, his little core, his little head. I’m going to knock him out inside four rounds, mark my words.”

“The movement, the power, the ferociousness – he’s not experienced this. He’s fought people who have shied away from him. I don’t fear this limited set of fighting. This is a limited set of rules that makes this half a fight, a quarter of a fight. If this was a true fight, it wouldn’t even take one round.”
40-year-old Mayweather replied the UFC star, who has never boxed professionally, saying: “You going out on your face or you going out on your back. Which way you want to go? Which way do you want go?”
“He looks good for a seven-figure fighter, he looks good for a eight-figure fighter, but I’m a nine-figure fighter.”
“God only made one thing perfect – and that’s my boxing record.”
The mega fight’s promotional events continue on Wednesday in Toronto, New York on Thursday before finally heading to London on Friday.
