If the mural in Conor McGregor’s gym is anything to go by, Floyd Mayweather could be facing a devastating knockout blow.

The UFC star tweeted a photo of himself inside a boxing ring and followers soon spotted some telling artwork on the wall behind him.

Yes, some people seem to think that might be Mayweather that McGregor is taking a swing at.

Having that staring down at you while training is certainly one way to psych yourself up…

After months of speculation, it was confirmed earlier this month that McGregor and Mayweather will face each other in the ring on August 26 in Las Vegas.

If his Instagram posts are anything to by, McGregor is hard at work preparing for the bout, which will be his first ever professional boxing match.

Forty-year-old Mayweather’s boxing record reads 49-0, while McGregor became the UFC’s first dual-division champion in November last year.

Since Mayweather retired from boxing in September 2015, he has been involved in a war of words with McGregor on social media and their bout is long-awaited for many boxing fans.

We can’t help but wonder if Mayweather has a similar mural in his gym…
