Team McGregor are riding high on confidence heading into ‘The Notorious’ Irishman’s boxing clash with Floyd Mayweather on Saturday night, with his long-time coach John Kavanagh even going as far as to say he expects the UFC lighweight champion to dominate the undefeated boxing legend.
Kavanagh made that bold prediction while noting how different the two fight camps are envisaging the fight will go, with Mayweather’s team being convinced that McGregor won’t even land a punch, while he believes McGregor is going to shock the world.
“I can honestly say, I don’t expect this to be the hardest fight of all time for Conor,” Kavanagh told The Mac life. “I expect him to go in there and completely dominate.
“So, one of us is living in a dillusion, but I really find it hard to imagine anything else other than Conor really putting on a clinic and really just destroying him. That’s if I’m being genuinely honest.”
