As we eagerly await Mayweather to do the same, a fight venue to be arranged, and a date to be booked, boxing and MMA fans will just have to discuss amongst themselves about how this proposed super-fight is going to play out.

Ricky Hatton has given his predict on how he thinks McGregor vs Mayweather will unfold, and he thinks The Notorious won't be able to land a punch on Money, just like he, Oscar De La Hoya and Canelo Alvarez failed to do so.

Hatton said, according to TMZ Sports: "I couldn't hit him. Oscar [De La Hoya] couldn't hit him. Canelo [Alvarez] couldn't hit him. Conor's not going to hit him. If he's the UFC's biggest name and he doesn't lay a glove on Floyd -- which no disrespect, I could actually see that happen -- I think there is only one organization that is going to come off worse or one sport."

The former British boxer knows what it's like to face the American in the ring, as in 2007, Mayweather defeated Hatton by stoppage. Mayweather has also beaten De La Hoya by split decision, and also Canelo Alvarez by majority decision.

Hatton believes if this does happen, it could be a bit embarrassing for McGregor, but don't get him wrong, he wants Conor to win and hopes he does so as well.

"I am a boxer but I am fan of UFC. But if he is UFC's biggest name and what I think happens in the fight, happens in the fight, it could be a bit embarrassing and I wouldn't like to see that happen to Conor because I love him to bits. I think he is good for sports, good for entertainment."

He added: "If the truth be known, I would like Conor to splatter him. My heart says it but my mind says no, he probably wouldn't [beat him]."
