There are at least 10 celebrities who believe that Conor McGregor will defeat Floyd Mayweather Jr. during their boxing superfight on Aug. 26, Saturday, in Nevada.They have different explanations why they support the Irish MMA fighter, the underdog.

  1. Demi Lovato
    “Floyd is obviously a boxer and he’s very, very good at it. But Conor’s crazy. And I want Conor to win because it would be so good for MMA.”

2. Idris Elba
“Mcgregor. He’s gonna throw some things around that Floyd’s not going to be used to. If Floyd does what he does normally, which is just hold a tight fight, I think McGregor’s going to topple that, strike him. If he gets one on his chin, it could be over.”

3. Mark Wahlberg
“Conor, I think is a very different kind of fighter. I don’t think [Mayweather] has the power to knock out McGregor.”

4. Sylvester Stallone
“I only got the underdog. [McGregor]’s a real life Rocky. But then again I live in fantasy. Mayweather’s gonna get hurt.”

5. Tony Hinchcliffe
“McGregor, KO 2. The same creepy boxing (a sport which I’ve loved since a child) people that said, “the fight will never happen” are the same ones saying, “McGregor doesn’t have a chance.” I’ve seen the insane feats Conor is capable of, I know Floyd loves money, so Conor wins and Floyd gets a rematch, makes double the cash and everyone is happy.”

6. UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson
“I’m riding with Conor. I think Conor, he can probably get it done sooner if he goes out there being ferocious, but I’m going with Conor. I think Conor’s gonna get the job done. It’s hard to say. I’ll tell you what: He ain’t gonna make a big check like that in the UFC. Hopefully Conor goes out there and knocks Floyd out, and then he can go ahead and fight the winner of GGG and ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. I’d love to see that.”

7. UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley
“I’ll be honest, me and Conor ain’t really see eye to eye on a lot of things. At the end of the day, I still want to scrap him, butI’m betting on Conor. You know why? I bet a grand, I win 6,500 bucks. I bet two grand, 13 grand. It’s freaking combat sports. Anybody got a chance at all times, so I’m willing to lose for the chance to win because that’s crazy that somebody that is that big of a underdog.”

8. Former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez
“Conor has about three or four rounds to get this done. … Within those four rounds, if you don’t think Conor can knock this guy out, you’re an idiot or you just don’t know fighting because it can very well happen. If he doesn’t get it done by then, then it could look very one-sided. The technical boxing of Floyd Mayweather is enough to make it look really one-sided for him. But Conor, there is a very real chance that he can put him away.”

9. Boxing Hall of Famer Shane Mosley
“MMA and boxing is like a sprinter running against a long-distance runner in their fields, it just doesn’t work. Strategically, I see Mayweather having a great time in there, smiling and laughing while McGregor is trying to hit him and find him. I see McGregor noticing how hard Mayweather hits, thinking that he doesn’t hit that hard. When he gets hit by Mayweather, he’s going to be like, ‘Oh wow, this is different from UFC punches.’ I think Floyd, if he wants to, can knock him out by the fourth or fifth round. I think that he’ll give the fans a show.”

10. Former welterweight boxing champion Andre Berto
“If this were to be an upset, it would definitely be a big blow to the boxing game, for sure. Definitely, definitely. It’s gonna be a big blow to Floyd’s legacy as well. Just being undefeated and able to let some guy upset you and he’s an MMA fighter and he probably talks a little more [expletive] than you talk. It’s gonna be tough for him to swallow if that happens. I see Conor coming in there really showing that bravado, showing that cockiness and showing that he’s really there to fight, and somewhat trying to steal the stage from Floyd just with his antics and he kind of gets Floyd into a mind-game situation, has him pulling some type of mistakes and [Mayweather] gets caught with a big shot and gets hurt. And [McGregor] could stop him.”
