I will k*ill Mayweather in less than 30 seconds - New challenger Conor McGregor...
MMA fighter Conor McGregor is confident in his abilities to take down undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr in just 30 seconds.
McGregor and Mayweather aren't scheduled to fight each other, but if they were, McGregor says the clash wouldn't last long.
"I don't look at a man who's expert in one area as a specialist," McGregor told Esquire.
"I look at him as a rookie in 10 other areas. If you can box, what happens if I grab hold of your legs? If you put me face-to-face with Floyd Mayweather-pound-for-pound boxing's best — if I fought Floyd, I would kill him in less than 30 seconds.
"It would take me less than 30 seconds to wrap around him like a boa constrictor and strangle him."
To be fair, it wouldn't be a surprise if McGregor had the upper hand in a UFC match.
Mayweather doesn't participate in that sport. If the tables were reversed and McGregor fought Mayweather in a boxing match, Mayweather would be favoured.
Mayweather is likely too busy focusing on his fight with Manny Pacquiao to make a response to McGregor's comments.
McGregor, who is Irish, is preparing for his own fight in July.
He'll face Jose Aldo for the featherweight title.
