Conor McGregor will be receiving plenty of support from fans back home in Ireland ahead of his fight with Floyd Mayweather.
McGregor will take on Mayweather in a ground-breaking bout which sees the two worlds of professional boxing and UFC collide at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26, live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Mixed martial artist McGregor, the reigning UFC lightweight champion and former UFC featherweight champion, has never taken part in a professional boxing match, but switches sports at the peak of his powers and will be determined to cause an upset.
His devoted fans, musicians and artists alike, believe their man can be victorious and you can watch as they have taken to the streets of Dublin to show their unquestionable support.
Mayweather, who holds a perfect 49-0 fight record and won 12 world titles across five weight divisions, is considered one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters boxing has ever seen and will no doubt pose a formidable task for 'Notorious', but that has only strengthened the belief of those who know him best.
One of those is his father Tony, who said: "McGregor just has the entire package, he has the persona, the style and he has the power.
"The power has got him there and all the rest is keeping him there."
