But the former apprentice plumber from Dublin, who was unemployed four years ago, defiantly predicted he was ready to spring a monumental upset on the skilful Mayweather, one of the finest boxers in history who boasts a perfect 49-0 record.
At the weight was conducted on Friday, McGregor weighed in at 153 pounds (below the limit of 154 pounds) and his rival weighed in at a trimmed 149.5 pounds. Technically speaking, McGregor will also have the height and reach advantage beyond the weight.
