“The Notorious ” Conor McGregor
McGregor is younger, has more reach and is expected to be the aggressor in the Mayweather Vs McGregor Live bout. Although his coming fight with Money is his first professional boxing bout, he is not a stranger in combat sports.

Along the way, McGregor became a two-division champion. His most notable win was when he pulverized the former best pound for pound in MMA, Jose Aldo, in just 13 seconds.
Who Will Win?
McGregor is fighting in Mayweather’s yard, so the latter is definitely at a big advantage. Money’s more than 2 decades of boxing experience will certainly stack the odds in his favor.
On the other hand, one should not simply dismiss the toughness and knockout power of McGregor. He may be deprived of his kicks and grappling moves, but he still has his fists, which were instrumental in many of his MMA wins. A solid one delivered to his rival will surely be a game-changer.
