The first official trailer for Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Jr has landed and if this doesn’t get you excited for the prospect of the fight to end all fights, nothing will.
Showtime dropped the two-minute promo over the weekend, with boxing and UFC fans alike left salivating at the prospect of the fight in the hours since.
But among the many things that shine through in the accompanying clip are the facts that McGregor is the younger man and a fighter with limitless amounts of self-belief.
Could the mother of all upsets be on the cards? Possibly, but McGregor still has some way to go in training before he will be ready for the challenge of arguably the best boxer of a generation.
Regardless of that, he’s been full of fighting talk in the months since the idea of a fight between the two was suggested, claiming Mayweather lacked some of his skills in the ring and was, at one point, running scared from the fight.
In any case, whether you care about the victor or not, this trailer represents essential viewing ahead of the pair’s big showdown on Saturday, August 26.
