A lot has been said in the media during the build up to the super-fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, with both fighters confident about their chances.
And, in his most adamant interview yet, the Irishman has vowed that he will capitalise on his opponent's poor preparation in sparring when the two collide on Saturday night.
The 29-year-old even compared himself to a gorilla, before warning the American that he will 'rip his head off and play football with it'.
In an interview with ShowTime, 'Notorious' claimed: "If there’s ever a contest to be motivated by this is the one.
“Not a chance, not a hope, he’s not going to land a glove, he’s going to get embarrassed, he’s going to get killed.
“My whole career, I am always told – I can’t do this – I can’t do that, I feel when someone tells you you can’t do something that’s when you must do something.
“He’s sparring 135 lbs kids, you think I’m a 135 lbs kid? I’m a 170 lbs Irish gorilla and I am going to rip his head off and play football with it.
“You’re seeing an animal come in here and destroy the whole game.”
McGregor's comments follow on from Mayweather telling fans that throughout fight week he will be partying at his La Vegas strip club Girl Collection and visiting roller discos.
Despite his claims, the Irishman believes that those comments were just mind games from his opponent, expressing his opinion that Mayweather is in fact training hard ahead of their fight.
The Dublin fighter commented: “It's amusing to me to see a 40-year-old man acting that way.
“Floyd at the beach club, at the strip club, what's that b*******?
“He's going roller skating at the roller disco.
“I don't believe that he's not working, I believe he's putting in work.”
With the fight fast approaching, both McGregor and Mayweather will be entering their final week of training in preparation for a fight which has been described as the fight of the century.
After expressing his belief that he will kill his opponent, we are edging closer to finding out whether McGregor can back up his claims when the two contest their bout on August 26.
