Alvarez - There Is Real Chance Conor Knocks Floyd Out

UFC star Alvarez has admitted he enjoyed Mayweather-Mcgregor press conference last week and says he was amused by McGregor's antics.

"I was sitting back with some popcorn, really enjoying this tour they went through," Alvarez told ESPN's Five Rounds podcast. "The most comical thing for me, even when I watch movies, is the guy who's so crazy confident about himself, with the mink jacket -- to me, that is so funny.

"I wish I could be like that. As a fighter, I wish I could do that, so I could make people laugh. But I can't, it's not my style. I'm glad he does it. We need guys like that."

Alvarez (UFC - 28-5) was really impressed with McGregor over the previous conference tour last week and even said it was clear McGregor came across better overall.

He also believes that Conor McGregor could had Floyd Mayweather his first professional defeat through knockout, with conditions of one to four rounds and if Conor does not do it by four rounds Floyd could make the fight one sided.

"Floyd's stuff, I don't know," Alvarez said. "I don't think there's a lot of intelligence behind it."

"Within [the first] four rounds, if you don't think Conor can knock this guy out, you're an idiot or you just don't know fighting," Alvarez said. "It can very well happen. If he doesn't get it done by then, then it could look very one-sided. The technical boxing of Mayweather is enough to make it look really one-sided.

"But Conor, there is a very real chance that he can put him away."

"Everybody could see hints of me in that [Gaethje, Johnson] fight, the way Justin kind of puts it out there," Alvarez said. "If you get the right guy in front of you, you can make some magic -- and he's one of those guys.

"These are the kind of fights I win every time. So it should be fun to see who is 'America's Most Violent.' It's a battle of that right there."
