Irish UFC star can better the 49 fighters that fell before him with these very simple steps
RING legend Larry Homes believes Conor McGregor could make easy work of Floyd Mayweather.
The boxing icon – who won 69 of his 75 fights, including his 1980 clash with Muhammad Ali – explained how the UFC star can pull off the giant shock.
The 67-year-old says all McGregor has to do to better the previous 49 fighters who came up short against the Money Man is hit him without getting hit.

The former IBF and WBC king seems to think Mystic Mac has been overlooked by the boxing fans who view the billion-dollar August 26 fight as a glaring mismatch.
And he has given a very simple description of how the MMA master can do the unthinkable and beat one of boxing’s best ever.
Holmes told the Bald Faced Truth Radio Show: “Don’t sell McGregor short. He doesn’t have to do too much to win.
“All he has to do is get him in the corner and bang him.
“Put his hands up over his head, get down low, keep coming in and throw punches once you get him against the ropes.”

Floyd Mayweather fears Conor McGregor has edge over him going into super-fight due to 11-year age gap
Holmes – who became the lineal heavyweight king when he became the only man to stop Ali – believes Mayweather’s legendary defensive style is beatable.
And, after making repeated comeback attempts and fighting as recently as 2002 aged 52, Holmes recognises the two goals the Irishman is targeting.
The veteran said: “He’s going to tie him up and try to hit him on the break.
“McGregor has to put his hands up, stay right on top of him and keep him from hitting him. It’s going to be an interesting fight.
“People are selling (McGregor) short. This guy is an athlete.
“He sees a lot of money, and he sees a medal on his chest if he can get over this hump.”
