Conor McGregor wants Floyd Mayweather super-fight to happen in September

Conor McGregor wants Floyd Mayweather super-fight to happen in September

The game is going to be in shock when I step in the ring.

Conor McGregor has vowed to "shock the whole goddamn world" by stopping Floyd Mayweather should the pair meet in a proposed showdown this summer.

Maybe don't hold your breath for this one, but Bellator superstar Michael "Venom" Page has made an admittedly interesting call-out of the UFC's lightweight champion, Conor McGregor over social media.

"Twenty eight years of age, confident as a motherfucker, long, rangy, risky with every hand", McGregor continued.

Floyd Mayweather calls Conor McGregor a b*** a href="https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/3133793/conor-mcgregor-goes-on-x-rated-rant-towards-rival-floyd-mayweather-as-he-reveals-fight-is-very-close-to-inking/" class="local_link" target="_blank" *McGregor has gone off on abusive rant towards Mayweather and admitted they are very close to the fight being confirmed.

He said: "September is what I'm thinking".

Over the weekend, McGregor made headlines after he walked out with Irish Olympic boxer Michael Conlan for his professional boxing debut at Madison Square Garden.

That will be easier said than done, obviously, as Mayweather is 49-0 in his legendary boxing career.

Wenger: Sanchez's ankle in 'absolutely bad state'
Writing on Instagram in a post tagged in Santiago, Chile, Sanchez captioned a photo of himself with the phrase: "The only failure is not to try".

"When pushed as to when the fight is likely happen, he added: "'We're getting close. "I flew to Las Vegas to have talks with Floyd and then he retired", McGregor said, as quoted by the MMAMania.

"The whole world is going to eat their words". He just doesn't want to see me. That would still be five times more than McGregor has ever been guaranteed for a fight, and he would make millions more on pay-per-view revenue. "He's petrified. Wouldn't you be?"

Mayweather, at age 40, hasn't fought since taking down Andre Berto in September of 2015, so he's had an even longer hiatus from serious competition than McGregor.

Like I said before, though, I wouldn't recommend holding your breath on this one.
