Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather Prediction: UFC Star Thinks He'll KO Boxer Within Four Rounds

International Business Times

Even if MMA and boxing experts are giving him little or no chance to pull off the upset, Conor McGregor is confident that he will beat Floyd Mayweather on Aug. 26. It's how he's dominated UFC, beating the likes of Eddie Alvarez, Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes within the first few rounds. The general consensus seems to be that the judges wrongly handed Horn a unanimous decision victory, though Pacquiao was far from dominant and the fight was much closer than it was expected to be. One judge inexplicably scored his 2013 fight against Canelo Alvarez as a draw, but Mayweather was dominant and won by majority decision.


Fury sorry for online video comments

BBC News

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has apologised for statements he made in a video posted online. Fury, 27, was filmed making homophobic, sexist and anti-Semitic comments in a video posted online earlier this month. In November, Fury caused an upset by outpointing 40-year-old Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in Germany, with the rematch for his WBA and WBO heavyweight titles to take place at the Manchester Arena on 9 July. His previous comments on homosexuality, paedophilia and women saw more than 100,000 people sign an online petition in an attempt to get him removed from the BBC's 2015 Sports Personality of the Year shortlist.
