Conor McGregor Vs. Floyd Mayweather Likely To Happen, Says Freddie Roach

Silva has maintained that one of his career goals was a boxing match against Jones Jr., an Olympic silver medallist, but his watertight UFC contract has denied him that opportunity.

Mayweather and McGregor have always been mooted for what would be a spectacular clash between two titans of boxing and UFC. I do train him quite a bit, and he is a great guy. All he does is decisions. And of course, McGregor is such a mega-star that if you put those two on a main event, I don't think that anybody in the world wouldn't watch that.

McGregor's boxing experience is only at amateur level, so even as an elite MMA fighter he would need to be trained up significantly to face one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in history. Conor McGregor's UFC comeback was initially projected as August.

Floyd Mayweather, left, is ready to fight Conor McGregor, for the right price. "I think it was a very fair deal".

McGregor, of course, is the most recognizable MMA fighter on the planet, so a return fight with him would be enormous, especially in terms of the money it would generate. My number is a guaranteed $100 million.

Everyone wants to see, if only to stop everyone from talking about how we might see it. "The UFC will never allow it", De La Hoya recently told Soprts Illustrated.

During his PPV interview, Conor referenced the Ali Act; however, it is unclear whether it has been implemented in the UFC and reports late past year suggested that UFC is lobbying to prevent the expansion of the federal law into MMA.

This could mean that the iPhone 8 will have a main screen resolution that's twice as much as the iPhone 6, 6s and 7 models. Tech giant hints intention to leverage LuxVue acquisition to integrate fingerprint reading technology to Apple gadgets.

Most critics expect Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather to generate PPV sales similar to the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight. "Mayweather would probably outclass him".

At nearly 40 years of age, Mayweather will come up against a UFC champion in his prime, who despite having limited boxing experience has the knockout power to potentially hand Mayweather his first career defeat.

Canelo lost his unbeaten record to 49-0 Mayweather and he has labelled his next possible fight a joke Mexican said: It's a joke for boxing if that happens.

Do you think we'll ever see McGregor fight inside the Octagon again? "And we can all make a lot of money".

"We weren't looking to steal anyone away from anybody", Roach said.

Speaking on "The MMA Hour", Roach told host Ariel Helwani that about three months ago, Mayweather stopped by his gym "a couple of times".
