Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor stands to be one of the most anticipated fights ever. Usually, Mayweather doesn’t take a beating in the ring, and he’s never been knocked out. But his fight against McGregor could be a bit more physical. He acknowledged his chances of taking some damage during the Aug. 26 fight and assured everyone that he will still come out on top.

Mayweather tends to be boastful and possibly for a good reason. The 40-year-old fighter has never lost a fight and carries a record of 49 wins overall. But what may be as impressive is that he has never been knocked out. In fact, he is known to be an evasive genius in the ring.

However, Mayweather may be a bit past his prime, and he is facing a smart, spry, and young opponent in McGregor. In a video from TMZ Thursday, Mayweather expressed that despite his chances of getting hit in the ring, he may still come out victorious.

"I be trying to tell ya'll, I can get a black eye, a bloody nose. I can have a bad day in the gym. At the end of the day, I don't have a bad payday and I don't have a bad night under the lights." He added, "I get bumps, bruises ... but I don't have a bad night."

Undoubtedly, Mayweather has won all his fights and has a perfect record. Though the boxer has never been knocked out, critics often propose that his fights can be a bit boring due to his tendency to evade most hits from his opponents.

A prime example is a fight that took place in May 2015 between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao when the two electrifying fighters seemingly hopped around the ring for 12 tedious rounds, which concluded in a unanimous decision in Mayweather’s favor based on points.

"Two years ago, you had Mayweather-Pacquiao and it was a boring fight," retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya told CNN Sport. "It was a fight that had a lot of people thinking "Wow, this is it? This is boxing?."

He added,"Mayweather is the best boxer in our generation, and he knows what he's doing, he knows how to box. I do not knock that whatsoever. I actually respect him for that. But to make people watch a 12 round snoozer is not good for boxing."

Mayweather’s peers echo a similar sentiment. Fellow boxer Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, who is set to fight on Sept. 16 isn't too enthused about the future bout.

"As a fighter, I’m really not interested in watching it," he told ESPN via a translator. "Because McGregor has no experience in boxing, and we all know what’s going to take place. It’s going to be an easy, one-sided boxing match for Mayweather, so I’m really not interested."

Though some may agree with Alverez and De La Hoya’s reactions, Mayweather could be right about his chances of winning. The betting odds have tremendous fate in his chances of winning. The Westgate Las Vegas Super Book has McGregor as the underdog at +500 and Mayweather listed as a -700 favorite to win the bout. The fight, no matter the outcome will be grand.
