McGregor Taunts Mayweather With Mural
Ahead of Conor McGregor’s rematch with Nate Diaz, McGregor lined his gym with images of him landing left hands on Diaz’s chin as a means to motivate him during training. Ahead of his upcoming boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather, McGregor has upped the ante when it comes to gym artwork.
The Irish UFC champion took to social media to post a photo of himself inside his gym SBG Ireland’s boxing ring, with the caption "I am a filthy Irish animal."
But fans were quick to notice the painting on the wall behind McGregor, which depicts him landing a left hand on the chin of Floyd Mayweather:

The trash talk may have just begun on social media for the August 26 fight, but will likely heat up in the coming weeks as McGregor and Mayweather come face to face for the first time.
If McGregor’s gym artwork is any indication, the Irishman has full confidence in his prediction that he will indeed shock the world and land a fight-ending punch on Mayweather.
