Conor McGregor Is ‘100 Percent Positive’ He Beats Floyd Mayweather

on

Conor McGregor finally got his bout against Floyd Mayweather, but the question is whether he can succeed in the ring. Of course, there is no debate where the Irish fighter is concerned.

“He is absolutely 100 percent positive that he wins this fight,” UFC president Dana White said on SportsCenter Wednesday, via Marc Raimondi of MMA Fighting. “I stopped doubting Conor McGregor a long time ago.”

Mayweather confirmed Wednesday the highly anticipated matchup between the two superstars is set for Aug. 26.

McGregor has never competed in a professional boxing match, but most of his success in UFC came through his punching ability. He has a 21-3 career record, with 18 of those wins coming by knockout.

However, Mayweather comes with a lot more experience while compiling a 49-0 record in his boxing career.

The betting odds don’t agree with McGregor’s confidence either, with Odds Shark currently listing him as a 5-1 underdog. It takes a bet of $800 to win $100 while betting on Mayweather. With that said, Justin Hartling of Odds Shark noted the shift in odds over the past few months:

This might be one of the most unpredictable fights in boxing history, but that will only keep fans on the edge of their seats.
