Sparring video shows Conor McGregor is DEFINITELY not ready to fight Floyd Mayweather

Just days after insisting he would KO Floyd Mayweather should they meet in a boxing match, the above footage of Conor McGregor sparring (or attempting to) emerges.

Worst. Timing. Ever.

The Irishman is obviously an exceptional fighter... when it comes to using every part of his anatomy.

But when it's down to just using his fists, it looks as though McGregor struggles somewhat - which is a slight issue when you've verbally agreed to a boxing match... AGAINST AN UNDEFEATED WORLD CHAMPION.


In the footage, the Notorious can be seen sparring with pro boxer Chris van Heerden (25-2-1). McGregor used the Welterweight fighter to help prepare for his Nate Diaz clashes earlier in the year.

And given that Mayweather is an undefeated welterweight champ, the signs aren't exactly encouraging.

McGregor, who's sporting the grey vest and blue hat, looks sluggish, slow on his feet and unable to hold his own.

In fact, the majority of the time he finds himself up against the ropes barely clinging on.

Somewhere, someplace, with a giant wad of cash - Mayweather is laughing.
