Watch extended footage of Conor McGregor’s trip to New York, where the Irishman supported Michael Conlan in his pro boxing debut.
Conor McGregor knows how to make an entrance.
Last month, ‘The Notorious’ shocked combat sports fans with his entrance at New York’s Madison Square Garden Arena to walk out Northern Irish boxing talent, Michael Conlan.
Conlan, a 25-year-old Belfast local with an Olympic bronze medal to his name, is considered one of the best amateur boxers in Northern Ireland and made his successful professional debut against Tim Ibarra, stopping the American with a barrage of strikes in the third round.
McGregor, the UFC’s lightweight champion, celebrated Conlan’s victory and even gave a post-fight interview in the boxing ring, congratulating his countryman on a stellar performance.
The former UFC featherweight champ is expected to square off with pound-for-pound boxing great, Floyd Mayweather Jr., and told reporters at MSG that he is going to take over the sport.
“You’re the boxing guy? I’m the boxing guy!” McGregor yelled at a reporter. “Watch me take over boxing, trust me on that. No one on this boxing game knows what’s coming.
“When I step in there, I will shock the whole goddamn world. Trust me on that. Look me in the eyes. 28-years of age, confident as a motherf—er, long range, dangerous with every hand! Trust me, I will stop Floyd. You’re all going to eat your words. The whole world is going to eat their words!”
While no date or venue has been announced, sources told FOX Sports that the boxing megafight is being targeted for September and McGregor teased that the bout will be signed very soon.
