Conor McGregor shows off training for Floyd Mayweather bout

New, comments

We’ve seen what Floyd is doing in the gym to get ready for McGregor, but what about the other side? What’s Conor got going on in camp?

Fans who were expecting Floyd Mayweather to look significantly diminished, out of shape, or somehow otherwise unready for a fight with Conor McGregor probably didn’t take much heart from recently released footage of the boxing all-time great hitting the bag in the gym. Mayweather showed off his fast hands and slick movement, as he prepares to fight McGregor on August 26th in Las Vegas Nevada.

But fear not, McGregor fans... or at least fear less. “The Notorious” Irishman has been putting his own time in, and released some footage of a recent training session on Instagram.

You've never seen these moves. #Ghost

And of course, with footage of both men now out making the rounds, there’s some serious opportunities for a side by side comparison.

Expect a lot more footage, mini-docs, features, and breakdowns for comparison over the next few months, as promotion and excitement for the event kicks into high gear. And, of course, stick to Bloody Elbow for more news and updates.
