The proposed fight has been talked about for the past year but now negotiations are ongoing to put McGregor into the ring with Mayweather, who retired in 2015 with a perfect 49-0 record while widely being considered one of the best boxers of all time.
McGregor has never competed in a pro boxing match so clearly he’s fighting an up hill battle, but he’s stated numerous times that he plans to shock the world when he finally gets his opportunity to face Mayweather in the ring.
Unfortunately, it doesn?t appear St-Pierre is ready to buy that hype that McGregor has a realistic shot of handing Mayweather his first professional loss.
“He’s going to lose. I’m pretty sure he’s going to lose if it happens,” St-Pierre said in a recent interview with RT Sport. “The odds are not in his favor. But I think if he manages to survive, it could be like a win for him because after he’s going to start talking ‘I stepped into your game, why don’t you step into mine now?’.
“It depends on not only the result of how it’s done. It all depends on how things play out.”
