Conor McGregor working on boxing skills in two clips posted by the Irishman today ahead of (an expected) soon to be announced Mayweather fight.

The Mayweather McGregor story continues to roll on after another week has gone by without the fight announcement getting actually made.

A week that came after reports last weekend that the fight would finally be announced early this week but yet again, fans have been forced to wait.

There’s not much doubt in anyone’s mind now though that it’s not going to happen.

Both men want it and the UFC and Dana White are now on board with the idea too, but like all big fights, they take time to get over the line.

Ahead of an announcement expected soon the Irish UFC star has posted two clips of himself working on his boxing skills outdoors today:

What do you think? How are his hands looking on the pads?

Consensus and popular opinion concedes skill-wise he doesn’t have a prayer against Mayweather, how could he? He’s taking on one of the best pure boxers of all time without even having a pro bout.

But you can’t fault him for wanting the match, or the fact he will make one shed load of cash for his troubles.
