It’ll be McGregor’s first boxing match since his clash with Floyd Mayweather in 2017 and he’ll want to be in peak condition.
McGregor has taken to Instagram to show off his brand new look, with many fans commenting on his muscular frame.
‘The Notorious’ is currently holidaying in France but captioned his post: “FAST athlete, we are not paid by the hour.”
One user stated: “Cleaned shave McGregor does this mean motivated Conor 2.0?”
A second added: “Who fook is this guy? Looks like young Conor.”
Anyway all water under the bridge who gives a fook.
I’m boxing Manny Pacquiao next in the Middle East.
