Mayweather tipped for knockout

Chris Eubank Jnr has tipped Floyd Mayweather to knock Conor McGregor out when they clash in Las Vegas this weekend.

Eubank has spent the past three weeks training alongside Mayweather in preparation for his World Boxing Super Series quarter-final with Turkey's Avni Yildirim in October.

He says the veteran American will be keen to end his career with a flourish, by knocking out his Irish opponent.

McGregor, 29, will make his professional boxing debut against the finest fighter of the modern era at the T-Mobile Arena in a match-up Mayweather, 40, insists will be his last.

From what I've seen and how I've heard him talk, he wants to put on a show.

Having watched Mayweather at close quarters in the countdown to their much-hyped tussle, Eubank expects to see an aggressive approach.

"With him, the main focus for this camp has been fitness. We're going to see the same Floyd we've been seeing, but a more aggressive Floyd," said Eubank.

"From what I've seen and how I've heard him talk, he wants to put on a show. With the 8oz gloves, he's going to go for the knockout. I just have a feeling, he wants to make a statement."

Mayweather is 3/1 to win by knockout and Eubank feels he will be determined to finish his career with a final flourish.

"This really is going to be his last fight, he wants to go out with a bang. Who wouldn't? I don't think he'd want to end his career on another points victory. So if he sees an opportunity, if he gets a chance, he's going to go for it and try and take Conor out," he added.

McGregor is 3/1 to win the fight, while a Mayweather victory on points is 11/4.
