McGregor's Coach Explains Reason Behind New Mayweather Mural

McGregor's Coach Explains Reason Behind New Mayweather Mural

Yesterday, Conor McGregor uploaded a photo to Instagram of himself wearing a rather comfortable grey marl ensemble that would be ideal for a crippling Sunday hangover.

OK, so the picture actually revealed a massive mural of Notorious clouting Floyd Mayweather in the face with his prized left hook, but still, his rig out still looked spot on.

The mural, currently adorning the wall in McGregor's gym where he is currently training for his 'Fight of The Century' with Floyd Mayweather, was commissioned by the Irishman's coach, John Kavanagh, who surprised McGregor with it in order to help with the UFC lightweight champion's 'visualisation'.

Subset, the company responsible for painting the mural, explained the thought process behind the idea.

"We have a great relationship with John Kavanagh and he graciously provided us with the opportunity of producing the artwork which is now the backdrop for Conor's preparations.

"The artwork is a gift for John which will aid Conor with the visualization of his success.

"As it was a surprise we were required to produce it once he finished a training session on Sunday evening and before he began another training session on Monday night.

"We filmed his arrival and reaction to the artwork and we are currently in the process of making a short video using the footage.

"This will be posted online in the coming days."

We can only imagine what McGregor's reaction was to seeing the mural in all its glory.

The Irishman is the clear underdog ahead of the bout in Las Vegas on 26th August, so he might need all the helpful murals he can get between now and then.
