Manny Pacquiao says Conor McGregor must "rumble" to catch Floyd Mayweather, ahead of the pair's fight in Las Vegas on August 26, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Pacquiao questioned McGregor's ability to land a meaningful punch on Mayweather as he claimed the Irishman has little chance of sealing victory, but admitted Mayweather could be caught if McGregor can "get lucky".
Pacquiao and Mayweather met in 2015 in what was billed by many as the 'Fight of the Century,' which saw the latter confirm his status as the best in the world of boxing with a one-sided win over the Filipino.
It was later revealed Pacquiao injured himself in training - a well-kept secret until the fight was over - and the 38-year-old feels he has a perspective on the upcoming clash, having himself taken on the undefeated five-division world champion.
When asked about the fight which will see Mayweather return to the ring following two years retirement, Pacquiao said: "McGregor has no chance in this fight.
"The guys who caught him and rumbled did best.
"McGregor is of that school. Maybe he'll get lucky."
Pacquiao also questioned McGregor's professional experience and stressed the difficulty of the task in hand.
"There is no way he will be able to land a meaningful punch on Floyd," said Pacquiao.
"How could he? He (McGregor) has no professional experience in boxing."
