Eddie Alvarez Backs Conor McGregor To Knock Out Floyd Mayweather


Eddie Alvarez reckon Conor McGregor has it in him to KO Floyd Mayweather this August 26.

The former UFC Lightweight Champion was speaking on ESPN’s Five Rounds podcast when he offered his thoughts on what is gearing up to be the fight on the century.

Alvarez explained:

Conor has about three or four rounds to get this done. When this comes down to being a technical boxing match, which is usually round four, it usually goes to the more technical boxer.

Although not exactly bigging up McGregor’s stamina and endurance, Alvarez still made it clear he was backing the Irish fighter.

He added:

Within them four rounds, if you don’t think Conor can knock this guy out, you’re an idiot or you just don’t know fighting.

Later on in the interview Alvarez also admits that he wishes he was as funny as McGregor.

In other related news, Universal has announced that there is a documentary on Conor McGregor called Notorious is on the way.

The tweet confirmation was sent out by the Universal Pictures Entertainment account which covers the home entertainment side of the company.
