The highly anticipated Conor McGregor/Floyd Mayweather boxing match promises to be the most hyped sporting events of all-time, but the consensus opinion is that the actual fight will probably resemble a steaming pile of trash.
Even though no one connected directly with the fight will admit it’s a giant money grab, McGregor’s former sparring partner, South African boxer Chris Van Heerden, has spoken out about the UFC champs chances, or lack thereof.
Van Heerden posted a tweet video of him in an unimpressive sparring session with McGregor, and said that if a boxer of his caliber was able to land shots on McGregor, the Irishman is in big trouble with Mayweather.

Van Heerden also made comments to TMZ, stating that he whooped McGregor in their sparring session with no training, while completely out of shape. He said that people giving McGregor a chance against Mayweather are delusional. He also said that Conor doesn’t have the punching power to knockout Floyd, even if he does connect.
