When the name Conor Mcgregor is mentioned in a fighting sense, it’s the power of his left-hand that get’s brought up.

But according to science, McGregor is just as quick as the once pound for pound great Manny Pacquiao.

In fact, in a video by Sports Science, it was claimed that McGregor gets that left-hand off in 0.15 seconds, the same speed as Manny. However McGregors punch extends an extra 3 inches on Pacquiao’s which technically makes McGregor the quicker puncher since he’s covering a further distance in the same amount of time.

This is exciting news since it adds an extra element to the fight between McGregor and Floyd Mayweather on August 26.

As many have said, “IF” McGregor can land on Floyd then it could be night-night. However many have doubted that Conor has the speed to hit Floyd, but this information changes everything.

Most believed that Pacquiao had the speed advantage over Floyd, and only lost due to Floyd’s skill level. Well if McGregor has the quicker punch according to science, has a longer reach and considerably more power than Pacquiao, it raises the question “could an early knockout be on the cards?”

One thing’s for certain, Floyd will know about this, his pre-fight research is unrivalled. Whether this changes how the fight goes or not, who knows. But there’s certainly a lot of mystery surrounding the August 26 bout.
