Conor McGregor threatens to abandon the boxing rulebook against Mayweather #CAPgist

In their first press conference to publicise their upcoming bout, Conor McGregor threatened Floyd Mayweather that he might leave out the rules of the game in case he feels disrespected by his opponent.

The American boxer will face the UFC star on a fight set to take place on August 26, in Las Vegas and the latter didn't hesitate to warn Mayweather that he may have to abandon normal regulations.

"As long as he speaks my name with respect, I will abide by the boxing rules, I'll abide by the Marquess of Queensberry rules," McGregor said to reporters. 

"If he disrespects me during this tour or during this build-up, then maybe I might just bounce an elbow off his eyebrow. 

"If his head dips down low I might just wrap it up in a strangle and it only takes three seconds to send a man to sleep a man from a strangle."
