Conor McGregor has given the world a taste of his boxing prowess during an open workout; ahead of his fight against Floyd Mayweather later this month.
It has been a controversial lead-up to the big fight, with Paulie Malignaggi’s sparring sessions taking centre stage.
The former IBF Junior Welterweight and WBA Welterweight champion was drafted in to help McGregor train for his upcoming bout, but things got out of hand.
But finally, McGregor has been able to showcase his abilities during an open work out session and a number of videos have emerged of him punching bags and strutting around like ‘Notorious’ tends to do.
But many people think the 29-year-old is in ‘big trouble’ ahead of the Mayweather fight.
UFC expert Ariel Helwani posted the below footage of Conor McGregor unloading on a punch bag, which sparked plenty of comments on Twitter.

The stuff McGregor is doing in this media workout is either a master troll or he literally has no idea what he’s doing. #MayweatherMcGregor
