Conor McGregor believes Floyd Mayweather was in the "worst shape" ever after both superstars made weight for their Las Vegas showdown.
The UFC star weighed more than three pounds heavier than Mayweather ahead of their fight in the early hours of Sunday morning, live on Sky Sports Box Office, and was far from impressed with the 40-year-old's physical condition.
Mayweather had claimed that McGregor would not make the 154lb light-middleweight limit, but the Irishman came in at 153lbs with the five-weight boxing world champion tipping the scales at 149.5lbs.
That's the worst shape I've seen him in. He looks out of shape, I'm going to breeze through him.
"He's full of water, that's the worst shape I've ever seen him in," said McGregor, who expects to have a significant size advantage. "That's the worst shape I've seen him in. He looks out of shape, I'm going to breeze through him.
"I'm a professional, I make weight. It's about sacrifices, dedication, it's focus, I make it, and that's it. I've put in the work as everyone can tell. I'm ready.
"(I'll be) a lot bigger than him (on fight night). Pushing 170lbs, yes."
McGregor was greeted by a large travelling Irish support and promised to deliver one of the biggest upsets in the history of boxing.
"You'll never beat the Irish, and that's it. Las Vegas is ours now. I'll stop him in four," he added.
"Let's see if he can take it. He's over there twiddling his thumbs and twitching away."
