It is the opinion of Conor McGregor Coach John Kavanagh that the will-they-won’t they boxing contest betwixt McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will go ahead, sometime later in the year.
Kavanagh has been busily honing McGregor’s boxing skills and abandoning any of the other skills typically the subject of training for a Mixed Martial Arts competitor.
Kavanagh told Fox Sports, “In my mind, it’s on. That’s the mentality we’re in.” He went on to say, “There’s a lot of fingers in the pie with this one — there’s different promotions, different organisations, there’s different commissions that are involved.”
The rumour mongering over the proposed fight seems to be equally, perhaps more entertaining, than the fight itself would be, as McGregor has about as much chance of beating Mayweather in the ring as he would going up against Winx in Saturday’s Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
McGregor’s MMA bouts are typically waged with McGregor in the 66 kilogram category and boxing with Mayweather might be at 67 kilograms, so McGregor may have to stop talking long enough to down a couple pints of Guinness and have a couple extra plates of bangers and mash, but the slight weight differential should not be any sort of significant issue.
