Mayweather Losing, Will Be The Greatest Sporting Upset

Mayweather Losing, Will Be The Greatest Sporting Upset

Michael 'Venom' Page has told Skysports that the biggest sport upset of all time will be Conor McGregor winning Floyd Mayweather and that it will shock the world.

Page, who is also venturing into the boxing world, could testify how hard it is for McGregor to fit into the boxing thing but does not underrate his chances of an upset.

"I think the last thing that shocked the world was Leicester winning the Premier League," Page said.

"In one night he could overshadow that, in one boxing match. It would be the biggest upset of all time.".

The MMA fighter also claimed that McGregor needs to utilize his MMA knowledge if he is to stand a chance against Mayweather come August 26.

"If Mayweather takes things for granted that's when he can get caught," Page said. "Being a mixed martial artist myself, we do bring different attributes to the table.

"We fight at a higher pace because our fights are slightly shorter in their length of time. Our maximum for title fights is 25 minutes.
"We have a higher intensity when we fight. The first four or five rounds is going to be massively competitive.

"It's going to be McGregor taking it to Mayweather and I don't see any other way he can do that. If he tries to fight like a boxer I think he'll definitely lose.

"If he goes in there and brings his MMA attributes to the boxing table, that's where it's going to be competitive."

While Page insists McGregor has a "puncher's chance", the Londoner expects Mayweather to have too much class for the Irish fighter when they meet in Las Vegas.

"It's very difficult to land that clean shot against somebody who has been one of the best defensive boxers of all time," he said. "It's definitely going to be a difficult one but exciting nonetheless."
