We’re just two months away from the most-anticipated fight in years—a crossover battle in which MMA champion Conor McGregor will open his boxing career by stepping into the ring against undefeated legend Floyd Mayweather—and all the smart money is on, well, the man they call Money.
But one man well versed in the ways of the boxing ring thinks McGregor will not only win, he’ll make quick work of the 49-0 Mayweather: the perfectly named Tyson Fury.
“I think Conor McGregor will knock him out in the first 35 seconds, like he did to Jose Aldo,” said Fury, the undefeated former heavyweight champion whose penchant for entertaining once saw him storm a press conference dressed as Batman.
The Brit may be a tad biased, though: “I think McGregor will do him inside one round. C’mon McGregor!”
Fury hasn’t fought since besting Wladimir Klitschko for the world title in November 2015.
As you’ll see in the video below, Fury has a ways to go before he gets back in the ring.
“Well, you can see I’m in the fattest shape of my life, I’m a fat b*****d,” Fury recently told the Sun. “I’ve had too much curry and pie. I have started training back after two years out of the ring nearly, I’m only the fifth day in—I’ve only got eight stone (112 pounds) to lose. To be honest, I’ve got a few things going on, I’m looking to be back September-October time. I’ll have a couple of warm-up fights to try and get some fat off, then we’ll go for the big ‘un. But if I can’t beat a weightlifter (Anthony Joshua) then I must be shit!”
