Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor McGregor will cross over to the world of boxing and fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. on pay-per-view (PPV) this August in Las Vegas, Nevada (full details here).
Longtime boxing personality Max Kellerman is not impressed.
“I’m a big McGregor fan and if he had been boxing this whole time, maybe we’d be having a different story,” Kellerman told ESPN. “Let me tell you what’s going to happen, Conor McGregor will not land a single punch on Floyd Mayweather. Not one punch.”
Kellerman must have been watching this video.
Not long after the fight was announced, oddsmakers flooded the sportsbooks with all the relevant numbers (see them here), though former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub is making a few prop bets of his own.
“Let me tell you! I guarantee Conor lands not only a punch but wins rounds,” Schaub wrote on Instagram. “Matter of fact, I would be willing to bet $100k on it. Would you Max Kellerman?”
