On August 26, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor go head-to-head at the T-Mobile Arena in what promises to be an unforgettable evening.
On Friday, McGregor took part in an open workout in front of the media, offering journalists and the public an opportunity to see what sort of shape he’s in ahead of the biggest challenge of his life.
The Irishman looked in great shape physically and remains confident ahead of his fight against the unbeaten Mayweather.
