WATCH: Here’s how Conor McGregor reacts when he sees the Mayweather mural in his gym for the first time

He couldn't stop smiling

It’s hard to leave McGregor speechless.

Video footage has been released on YouTube of the moment when Conor McGregor walked into his gym and discovered a mural of him punching Floyd Mayweather had been put up ahead of the clash between the pair.

McGregor, who is wearing all grey in the video, was left speechless as he caught a first glimpse of the mural which he hopes will motivate him to beat the boxing champion in August.

He is currently in preparation for the fight and is training in Ireland.

He was clueless about the mural before it was unveiled to him and as he walked into the gym, he was immediately suspicious about the cameraman who was recording his entrance.

His trainer, John Kavanagh, and co reassure McGregor that the cameraman is there for a good reason and tell him that he’ll realise why in about twenty seconds.

His face lights up when he sees the painting and he responds by letting out a few curse words but he is in complete awe of the creation and concludes the expletive blurts with a ‘wow’.

The person behind The Mac Life Productions is a man by the name of Christian Tierney. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because he was interviewed by JOE  just a week before the McGregor-Mayweather fight was announced.

He told us that: “I’m looking forward to doing more work with Conor [McGregor] as his career continues to grow,” so if you want to get the latest from McGregor in the build-up to his face-off with Mayweather, there is probably no better person to follow than Tierney.

The super fight between McGregor and Mayweather will take place on 26 August and will be held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
