Conor McGregor has been kept pretty much under wraps ever since his fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. was announced, emerging occasionally to trash Mayweather only to disappear again behind the closed doors of the UFC training center.

It's not by accident. The biggest selling point of the spectacle that is Saturday night's 154-pound fight is the unknown.

Is McGregor good enough to land a big punch on Mayweather? Did he acquire enough boxing skills in just a few short months to make what should be a lopsided fight competitive?

Inquiring minds want to know, and there are enough of them to make this the most watched fight in history.

Some 50 million people in the U.S. alone are expected to gather with friends and family to see it all unfold.

"I will be the king of both sports," McGregor crowed. "I'm already the king of fighting, I'll soon be the king of boxing."

Not so fast, said Mayweather, who comes from a boxing family and famously began throwing punches before he could walk.

"After 21 years I've been hit with everything and I'm still right here," Mayweather said. "If you give it you must be able to take it."

No worries, said McGregor, who says his boxing talents shouldn't be underestimated."I've been lacing up the gloves my entire existence," McGregor said. "Of course, we will come with a different approach than people are used to, we will paint many pictures inside the ring. It's not going to end well for Floyd. It's not going to end well for all the people who are doubting me and are so convinced that this is what it is."
