WATCH: Conor McGregor Reacts To Seeing His Mayweather Mural For The First Time

WATCH: Conor McGregor Reacts To Seeing His Mayweather Mural For The First Time

If you're not one of the 14.1 million people who follow Conor McGregor on Instagram, you may not have seen the gigantic, fuck off mural that has been emblazoned on the wall of his gym, depicting the Irishman plastering a trademark left hook across the face of Floyd Mayweather.

The pair will meet inside the squared circle on 26th August at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and McGregor has gone into full blown hype mode ahead of the 'Fight of The Century', taunting Mayweather at every available opportunity.

The mural first made an appearance on McGregor's Instagram page last week, alongside a picture captioned, 'I am a filthy Irish animal'.

And the painting has made several more appearances since its debut on Notorious' social media accounts.

McGregor is unsurprisingly delighted with the mural, which is being used as a 'visualisation' tool ahead of Notorious' clash with Money in just under two months time.

Explaining the thought process behind the painting, Subset said, "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."

Will the 'visualisation' tool prove to be a success or not?
