Conor McGregor Suits Up His Son In Preparation For The Mayweather Fight

Conor McGregor Suits Up His Son In Preparation For The Mayweather Fight

Conor McGegor has got his 'mini me' son suited and booted ahead of his fight with Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor enlisted his friend, David August Heil, the founder and creative director of David August, to make a custom suit for three-month-old Conor Jack which he will wear to the big fight.

McGregor is feeling pretty confident before the showdown. In fact, he has said that he plans on flooring Floyd Mayweather Jr 'in 10 seconds'.

Speaking to ESPN, he said: "We are prepared for every possible outcome.

"Part of me wants to show some skill and dismantle him that way. I'm ready to put him away in the first 10 seconds."

The build-up to the fight has been bigger than any in boxing history, as MMA star McGregor switches to boxing to scrap with the former world champion.

The fight, which is due to take place on Saturday night in Las Vegas - early morning Sunday UK time - is cited as being the most valuable of all time, having already surpassed the $72 million (£56m) arena ticket sales record set by Mayweather's 2015 bout with Manny Pacquiao.

The minimum price for entry to the T-Mobile on the Vegas Strip is $500 (£390), going all the way up to $10,000 (£7,800) for the best seats in the house.

In the lead up to the fight, the odds on McGregor winning have shortened, although 'Money' Mayweather is still the big favourite.

McGregor, who was once as long as 6/1 to win, is now 3/1 with some bookmakers, while Mayweather has seen his odds come down from 1/6 to 1/4.
