LAS VEGAS – Many people are skeptical about Floyd Mayweather’s comments about going on the offensive against Conor McGregor in “The Money Fight.” Heather Hardy is one person who believes him.

Hardy (20-0 boxing, 1-0 MMA), who is an active fighter in both boxing and MMA, is of the belief that Mayweather (49-0 boxing) will actually try to make a statement against McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) in Saturday’s anticipated boxing match at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

“He’s never said that before,” Hardy told MMAjunkie. “He always defends his style. He says, ‘Look at my face. I’ve got (49 wins).’ He defends how he boxed because it’s smart boxing. This time he feels like he’s going to come out, and I think he is.

“I believe ‘Money’ May, that he’s going to come out swinging, that he’s going to stay right in his face. He said, ‘I’m not backing down, I’m not moving backwards, I’m not running around, and I’m ending the fight.’ I’m with it.”

Hardy picks Mayweather to win the fight but believes McGregor is taking the correct steps in order to maximize his chance of winning. She said the UFC lightweight champion needs to take Mayweather out of his comfort zone, and his unorthodox style of fighting could make the bout interesting.

“He’s doing all the right things right now,” Hardy said. “He’s very awkward. I don’t say that disrespectfully. He hasn’t adopted a conventional style. He hasn’t adopted conventional training methods, and he’s trying to come out a different way. There are 49 guys who went out and tried to outbox the master, and this guy’s saying, ‘I’m just going to beat you up.'”
