Conor McGregor Responds To Floyd Mayweather With Training Video
Conor McGregor won’t let Floyd Mayweather dominate the narrative prior to their boxing match.
The Irish-born fighter posted a video late Thursday of himself training for their fight, and his moves looked silky smooth as he beat up on a punching bag with yellow boxing gloves.
The UFC champion also showed some mobility and elusiveness with his moves. He captioned the video, “You’ve never seen these moves. #Ghost.” (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)
The video comes shortly after Mayweather released his own training video, where he showed off his hand speed.
“I know I’m not the same fighter I was 20 years ago, I’m not the same fighter I was 10 years ago… As a matter of fact, I’m not the same fighter I was 5 years ago,I’m just an old legend putting in work in 16 oz gloves,” Mayweather wrote on the Instagram video.
It’s important to note that the legendary boxer practicing with 16 ounce gloves is essentially just showing off because the actual fight will happen with ten ounce gloves.
