Conor McGregor insults Floyd Mayweather as supposed battle inches nearer to reality

It's been all around archived that Conor McGregor will have the benefit of youth on his side on the off chance that he ventures into the boxing ring with Floyd Mayweather in the not so distant future.

At 28, McGregor has all the earmarks of being in his battling prime after an extremely bustling 2016 that saw him required in two of the greatest sessions on pay-per-see while additionally turning into the principal ever synchronous two-division champion in UFC history.

Concerning Mayweather, he turned 40 years of age recently and hasn't ventured between the ropes since 2015 when he resigned from the game of boxing.

On Monday night, McGregor tackled Mayweather with a post on Twitter, provoking the previous champion for his age after a photo surfaced of him back in preparing.

"Man, many regards to Floyd senior as yet getting a couple of rounds at the rec centre," McGregor composed. "I trust I can at present prepared at that age. Regard."

The underhanded compliment was clearly a shot from McGregor at Mayweather's propelling age as they keep on negotiating for a battle among them that could be a standout amongst the most lucrative occasions in battle sports history.

Not long ago, Mayweather's group had asked for and after that withdrew a demand to the Nevada State Athletic Commission to hold August 26 as a date for an up and coming occasion at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

There's since been a huge amount of theory that Mayweather was focusing on that date for his battle with McGregor.

The main issue with that date is that all signs have pointed towards McGregor and Mayweather going head to head at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and that date is as of now possessed by the BIG3 Championship Finals. Obviously, the battle could simply move to the MGM Grand Garden Arena, however, that is a substantially littler scene, which implies fewer ticket deals and less cash created for the super battle.

Obviously, this new date could likewise be simply another Mayweather Promotions occasion made a beeline for Las Vegas.

As per the present timetable at T-Mobile Arena, August 12 and 19 are as of now open and September 9. Tragically the UFC as of now has outlined on an occasion on August 19, which would clearly struggle with the potential McGregor versus Mayweather confrontation.

Initially, the battle was supposed for September 16, however that date has now been possessed by the bout between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin. That occasion is advanced by Oscar De La Hoya, who has straightforwardly condemned the conceivable McGregor versus Mayweather matchup in the course of recent weeks.

Putting McGregor versus Mayweather anyplace close to the battle between Canelo versus Golovkin would without a doubt hurt the fight between two of the top stars in that game today.
