Some have said that Mayweather may not be taking this fight as seriously as those in the past, but fellow boxer Eubank Jnr has laughed this off
FLOYD MAYWEATHER is taking Conor McGregor deadly serious, according to IBO middlweight champ Chris Eubank Jnr.
Much has been made in the build-up how Mayweather may have slackened in certain aspects of his training camp – recently he was captured on video wolfing down a Burger King.

But according to Eubank Jnr, who has been training in Mayweather’s gym for the last three weeks, no stone is being left unturned in The Money Team.
Speaking to SunSport in Las Vegas, Eubank Jnr said: “From what I have seen Floyd is in tremendous shape.
“I watched him train for [Marcos] Maidana, for [Manny] Pacquaio, and for [Conor] McGregor, and in my opinion he is in just as good shape as he was for those opponents.
“He is not taking this fight lightly.
“Floyd is treating this fight like he’s about to go in there with the number one contender.
“So I expect there to be some serious action on the night.”

When asked of his opinion on how the fight would go, Eubank Jnr added: “I can only think that Floyd is going to be victorious, just because we have nothing to base Conor’s boxing abilities on.
“We don’t know what he is, and we know that Floyd is one of the best ever, so you can’t really say that Conor has got much of a chance of winning.
“Obviously anything can happen but if you’re a betting man the smart money is on Floyd.”
