Despite the rather low probability of a fight actually taking place, the tension between pound for pound boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr and dual UFC Champion Conor McGregor is intensifying, and fans of both sports are still entertaining the idea surprisingly.

In this hilarious take on the super fight, film director Adam Arnali gave Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather the retro treatment to bring you ‘Conor McGregor’s Punchout’ which is based on the popular vintage Nintendo game.
