"Part of me. kind of wants to show some skills and dismantle him that way".

"I look forward to putting him down", he said.

While most pundits have McGregor, who has never boxed professionally, as a heavy underdog, the Dubliner said he was determined to prove the doubters wrong. "And earning my respect in this game also".

"It would be the biggest sporting achievement of any sports ever if he manages to pull this off", he said.

According to White, early industry estimates suggest the unorthodox bout will crush revenue records in both boxing and UFC, surpassing the $72m generated by an estimated 4.6m pay-per-view sales for Mayweather's 2015 meeting with Manny Pacquiao. Boxing doesn't usually do a lot of digital.
