The trash-talking champion Conor McGregor really knows where to find some motivation. The MMA superstar posted a mural of himself knocking out undefeated boxing great Floyd Mayweather, Jr. before their hyped-up match this August.
Here’s another look.
This comes after it was announced last week that both fighters will finally face each other in a historic inter-sport megabout on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Each of them are expected to bag at least a $100 million paycheck just for that night.
But not everyone is happy with this development. Boxing legend and promoter Oscar De La Hoya has explicitly stated that he is against the matchup, which he described as a “circus” that will further tarnish boxing’s reputation as a sport.
On the other hand, top boxers like Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin, who have an upcoming fight after the Mayweather-McGregor megabout, shared De La Hoya’s sentiments.
Meanwhile, here are some of the most hilarious reactions from netizens on social media about the upcoming megabout.
First, let’s take a look at these cool mockup fight posters:

And Conor’s going to roll in even more stacks of cash right after.

Meanwhile, Nate Diaz is either bitter he got left out or is just a pro at trolling.
But let’s face it. We all know how it will turn out in favor of Floyd’s boring defensive style.
It’s so obvious that even McGregor’s sparring partner is leaning towards Floyd.
And yet, someone’s getting ready for a slug fest. Or maybe not...
Here’s the only way Conor can win:
