Leonard Ellerbe Says Mayweather Prepared For McGregor's Style

BROOKLYN NY- JANUARY 14 Gervonta Davis defeated Jose Pedraza by tko at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn NY

Many wonder if UFC fighter Conor McGregor has what it takes to beat - or even keep up with - boxing champion Floyd Mayweather in their super fight slated to go August 26 from Las Vegas.

Conor McGregor says Floyd Mayweather is "scared" in the build-up to their multi-million dollar fight on 26 August in Las Vegas.

Mayweather, who is yet to lose a fight in his boxing career, made it clear when responding to comments made by the Australian. McGregor spoke at his media workout (via MMAjunkie) and said he plans to become a dual sport star. He took a lot of head trauma. They were ringing us, anxious about him stumbling out of the vehicle, incoherent. We were anxious. The sparring partners were actually telling us that he was stumbling out of the auto after a 12 rounder.

"He was knocked down, the ropes kept him up multiple times, he was badly concussed". We were anxious about him.

Let us know your thoughts. "And then he just got out of there and went running". Malignaggi believed the photos posted were misleading and disrespectful in nature since they showed him on the canvas and McGregor landing flush.

"Everybody already knew what happened with Van Heerden, now he's doing the same with me too". It's a house of cards.

Malignaggi maintained in a series of tweets that snapshots didn't paint a clear picture of their sessions.

Last week Mayweather posted an Instagram message stating, "I'll be wearing 8oz Grant gloves", which was met with much approval from his opponent Conor McGregor. "The spars were not good for him", McGregor said about Malignaggi.

Among Malignaggi's biggest complaints was one particular shot where he was laying on the ground with McGregor standing over top of him after an apparent knockdown.

But the timeline changed overnight, with UFC chief Dana White posting two videos on Twitter.

Conor McGregor has always been adamant that his fight with Floyd Mayweather will hinge on whichever fighter takes the first step back.
