There is mounting concern for the well-being of UFC star Conor McGregor leading up to his Saturday fight with Floyd Mayweather as some veteran ringside doctors believe McGregor's health could be in jeopardy in the bout against the skilled former welterweight champion.

Mayweather now holds the box office record at 4.6 million for his victory over Manny Pacquiao in May 2015 - almost twice as many as the previous record, when he fought Oscar De La Hoya.

"Well, I'm just being honest", Mayweather said.

After back-to-back convincing wins in 2015 against Manny Pacquiao and Andre Berto, the boxing world thought that Mayweather's sensational career was at an impressive end.

At Friday's weigh-in, Mayweather tipped the scales at 149.5 pounds, CBS Sports reported. The 40-year-old is the heavy favorite to win the bout and walk away with a ideal 50-0 professional record. "You don't have a soccer player playing basketball against someone and expect it to be a fair fight".

Both fighters continued to promise fireworks.

"We knew that many of their athletes were using our product at other sites", said Nicole Biesecker, the company's VP of marketing. If Mayweather wins then boxing goes on a high, if McGregor wins then people will follow MMA.

"I'm gonna breeze through him. I see a man afraid".

"I'm 81 years old, so I'll probably never see it, but I wouldn't be surprised, in fact I predict that the National Football League and places like that will be on pay-per-view", Hand said.

We're getting excited and so are the fans in Las Vegas.

.

"He looks blown out, full of water", said McGregor, 29.

"The buzz from this fight is massive, it happens with every huge fight but this one has that edge for us because McGregor is one of our guys, our champion".

Bogdanovich told AFP that bets on McGregor were outstripping wagers on Mayweather by a ratio of 17 to 1. Mayweather doesn't cut a ton of weight, and he'll likely weigh around the same for the match.
