On Wednesday, the 28-year-old Irishman posted a video on Instagram that shows him training for a boxing match. McGregor (in green) looks quick and impressive in the video.

For a while now, there have been rumors of McGregor taking on one of the best boxers in the world, Floyd Mayweather. The two have a beef, and "The Notorious" isn't afraid to step out of his natural element to squash it. The two men are similar in size: McGregor stands 5-foot-9, 155 pounds, and Mayweather is 5-foot-8, 151 pounds.

 

Though "Money Mayweather" is retired, he was one of the best boxers to ever step inside the ring. He has an undefeated 49-0 record and holds many titles. No one knows if the match will ever happen, but in case it does, McGregor will be ready.
