Conor McGregor vows to 'destroy' Floyd Mayweather as sparring sessions intensify
Conor McGregor has vowed to 'destroy' Floyd Mayweather when they finally face off in the ring on August 26.
The Irishman is continuing his preparations for the Las Vegas bout, which will be his first foray into professional boxing.
McGregor posted a picture of himself taking part in a sparring session as the UFC icon ramps up his training less than a month away from the fight date.
"Another handy 12 rounds today. We are prepared to destroy Floyd," McGregor wrote in the caption accompanying the image.
"Pick whatever size gloves you want as well little man. I fight with 4oz. I don't give a f*** about the size of the glove.
"I am coming sprinting at you with bricks. Know that. Brittle hands."
McGregor, 29, has been given very little chance of beating the undefeated Mayweather.
British fighter Michael 'Venom' Page believes a win for McGregor would represent the biggest sporting upset of all time.
"I think the last thing that shocked the world was Leicester winning the Premier League," Page said.
"In one night he could overshadow that, in one boxing match. It would be the biggest upset of all time."
