By Manuel Perez: Former four division world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner says Floyd Mayweather Jr. is going to knockout Conor McGregor “REAL BAD” tonight in their fight on Showtime pay-per-view at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Broner is predicting a 6th round knockout win for Mayweather over McGregor.
Broner says McGregor has about as much chance of winning tonight as he does in hitting the lottery twice.
“He’s looking great,” said Broner to Fighthype about Mayweather in the training that he did for the McGregor fight. “He has a better chance of hitting the lotto twice,” said Broner about McGregor. “Floyd Mayweather Jr. will [expletive] him up. He’s going to stop him in the 6th. He’s going to stop him REAL bad, real bad,” said Broner.
McGregor is going to need to make a real strong push in the first quarter of the fight to get to Mayweather’s chin to knock him out. If McGregor doesn’t knockout Mayweather early he’s going to wind up getting out-boxed and likely stopped by the 8th round. Broner is giving Mayweather a little too much credit for being a good fighter. He’s not going to knockout a guy like McGregor in 6 rounds. It’s going to take longer than that for McGregor to wear down and stop being a threat to hurting Mayweather.
“December,” said Broner when asked when he’ll be fighting again. “Right now, I feel like [expletive] the USA, because they’re haters. I [expletive] with the UK.”
Broner (33-3, 24 KOs) lost his last fight to Mikey Garcia by a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision on July 29 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. It appears that Broner is still harboring some ill will with the boxing fans in the U.S about the negative things they said about him after his loss.
