Manny Pacquiao knows what it's like to lose to Floyd Mayweather Jr., and he thinks that is exactly what's in store for Conor McGregor on August 26.
"McGregor has no chance in this fight," Pac-Man said Monday, per Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports. "In fact, it could be very boring."
Pacquiao was far more interested in the September 16 showdown between two boxers and not a boxer and an MMA fighter.
"The real fight and the best fight is [Gennady] Golovkin vs. Canelo [Alvarez]," Pacquiao said. "The best vs. the best. That's the fight I will be watching."
While Pacquiao will be watching that fight, it is the upcoming showdown in Las Vegas between Mayweather and McGregor that could threaten the all-time pay-per-view record of 4.6 million purchases. That record just so happened to be set by the 2015 bout between Pac-Man and Money.

There will certainly be a spectacle element to McGregor entering the ring for his first professional boxing match against one of the best in the sport's history, but it's not hard to see where Pacquiao is coming from.
The 49-0 Mayweather is known as a defensive fighter who eludes his opponent's best punches and counters with blazing speed and timely jabs. Not even career-long boxers such as Pac-Man can keep up with him, let alone someone who has made his fame in the UFC.
As for Pacquiao, he has his own matchup to worry about before McGregor and Mayweather square off. He will fight the undefeated Jeff Horn Sunday in Australia.
