Full of Irish horse power I am going to run you over. pic.twitter.com/NtaczPEnVM — Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) August 22, 2017"It will be dreadful for the sport of boxing if Mayweather, one of the greatest fighters of all time, gets rolled by a guy having his first fight but I can’t see McGregor doing too well even with all the hype. "Their fight is going to be under boxing rules and Mayweather will probably not even get hit.

After Horn's own win over Pacquiao, the Australian immediately laid down a challenge to Mayweather, holding up a walking stick to bait the 40-year-old.
Former schoolteacher Horn is set for a rematch against Pacquiao in Brisbane later in the year but said he would "love a crack" at Mayweather. "He could challenge me for the world welterweight title. And if McGregor wanted to fight me I’d take it right now. I wouldn’t be worried one bit," said the 29-year-old.

Floyd Mayweather says Conor McGregor is "extremely heavy" right now at 164 pounds and could miss weight ? https://t.co/x48bZ56OxM pic.twitter.com/G9BDM22pyQ — Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) August 22, 2017Horn added that he would fight Mayweather like Marcos Maidana, who pushed the American in two defeats in 2014. "A few years ago we saw Maidana from Argentina give Floyd the fight of his life but Maidana didn’t have the engine to sustain it for 12 rounds," the Australian said. "I’d fight Mayweather like Maidana did but I’d do it for 12 rounds, not six."
