McGregor says he'd be looking to KO Mayweather

McGregor says he'd be looking to KO Mayweather”

Despite the UFC announcing Conor McGregor has voluntarily vacated his featherweight title last week, the MMA star claims otherwise.

"If I focus, with the work ethic that I have, exclusively on the sport of boxing then there's no telling what I could do", McGregor said.

"Since I've got that boxing license, Floyd's fat manager came out and was like 'Oh Floyd's in the Bahamas, he doesn't care about Conor, '" McGregor said.

And come January when he leaves Belfast behind and jets out to live in Los Angeles with his fiancee Shauna and lovely young daughter Luisne, the target is to be fighting for a world title in the next two years.

"He's either serious about boxing or he's thinking he can get some leverage on the UFC", Schaefer said.

"I know you apologised about absolutely nothing last fight but after I am done with you - I am going to knock the beard off you homie - you are going to be apologising for everything you have been trying to do to get into boxing".

NGO alleges gangrape of US tourist in a CP hotel
In the complaint, the victim has alleged that she was gang-raped by five men including her tourist guide at her hotel room. The agency contacted its partners in India that had booked the hotel and employed the prime accused as the tour guide.

The 28-year-old entered the UFC 205 as a featherweight champion and defeated Eddie Alvarez in the second round in NY to win the lightweight title.

Conor McGregor became the UFC Featherweight Champion when he knocked out the former champion, Jose Aldo, in less than four seconds at "UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor".

An interim featherweight title fight between Max Holloway and Anthony Pettis will headline UFC 206 next weekend. I know the size is on my side, I know the reach is on my side and I know the youth is on my side.

"They're scrambling right now, but that's OK", McGregor said yesterday at a Q&A at The Devenish bar in Belfast (h/t Marc Raimondi of MMA Fighting) "I'll leave them scrambling".

LAST summer Floyd Mayweather teased a possible boxing match between himself and McGregor. "I still got that belt".

Mayweather promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe offered his opinion on the bout and claimed that it would never come to fruition, suggesting that the UFC brass had more sense than to embarrass their most reliable cash-cow by acquiescing to a fight against one of the most technical boxers of all time.

United Nations commission: ethnic cleansing underway in South Sudan
A recent AP investigation uncovered evidence of ethnic targeting and frequent attacks on civilians by South Sudan's military. Ethnic cleansing is taking place in war-torn South Sudan, the country's United Nations human rights commission has warned .

Malignaggi made the comments on Twitter following an interview with World Boxing News, in which he discussed McGregor's boxing licence and the chances of him making the move to the sport.

"The guy like is like, do you ever do viagra, Cialis and all that type of stuff?' And I was like, 'yeah, I've had male enhancement pills before".

"You can play with those fake belts all you want".

His boxing license rekindled fans' excitement over a speculated fight with boxing immortal Floyd Mayweather. You're looking at the two-weight world champion, and that's it.

McGregor will need a little bit of luck if he hopes to pursue another interest in boxing, one he said came about as the result of retired boxing kingpin Floyd Mayweather's callout, which he said was leaked to the media this past year.

Of course, McGregor is contractually obligated to the UFC, and while they could do nothing to stop him taking out a pro boxing license, allowing their star asset to compete inside the squared circle is another matter entirely.
