The latest McGregor boxing video has come and he’s had a message for Floyd Mayweather, as well as mentioning Manny Pacquiao.
The latest McGregor boxing video has drummed up a fair bit of debate and well over 4.5 million views on Instagram. It shows the Irishman talking about boxing movement and shadow boxing.
As well as talking about tips for a young fighter he helps with boxing by exchanging videos and critiquing them, he’s had a long message accompanying the post:

Here is a reply video I sent one of my protégés who was seeking advice on some boxing only pad work footage they sent me. I believe you will like it. The focus has been solely boxing lately but make no mistakes, the kicking and grappling aspects, and everything else got to do with unlimited free fighting, is still very much present in my thoughts. Floyd may crap his jocks after all and if so I will go back to true fighting or just pick another boxer like manny or something. But whatever that's another conversation. I like to build fighters and watch their progression. I have built many to this date, and all unintentionally. One is fighting in the UFC main event this weekend. When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it.
In recent days the Mayweather fight looks closer to ever before being made.
McGregor’s child with his girlfriend Dee Devlin is expected this weekend and after that most likely his side of the negotiating will be done.
It’s up to Dana White and team Mayweather to hammer out their side of the deal now.
Although McGregor mentions ‘Manny’ (Pacquiao) above, anything less than a Mayweather match now after all this hype would surely be a massive let down for all.
Tom Craze of Bad Left Hook made a good point on the above video last night that got quite a few re-tweets:
I figured Mayweather would coast to a wide UD – until I saw McGregor’s Instagram. Now I think Floyd might struggle to avoid stopping him.
