If you didn’t know by now, Conor McGregor has made a career of predicting the round for his knockouts in the UFC. He gets them right most of the time. Apparently, his latest prediction has been made public.
According to The Sun, McGregor has said that he will stop Floyd Mayweather Jr before the fifth round.
“He has made predictions before and has always managed to back it up so who’s to say that he’s wrong?He’s told pals he’ll KO Floyd in the fourth round,” said a source in an interview with The Sun.
A fourth round knockout victory over 49-0 Mayweather would definitely send massive shockwaves across the world. A win like that could lift McGregor to the top as one of the biggest sporting stars of today.
McGregor and Mayweather are about to start their world wide press tour this week. Their first stop is the Staples Center in Los Angeles. On Friday this week, the tour will arrive in London and the press conference will be held at The SSE Wembley Arena.
The fight itself will happen on August 26th in Las Vegas.
