Det har varit många som uttalat sig gällande den omtalade matchen mellan UFCs fjäderviktsmästare Conor McGregor och boxningslegenden Floyd Mayweather, och nu har även tränaren Freddie Roach sagt sitt. Freddie ger inte McGregor någon större chans att vinna mot Floyd förutsatt att de möts, och detta hade han att säga via ”InsideMMA”:
Well there’s a lot of rumors out there that I’m getting calls from Conor McGregor asking me to train him, but they’re not true. They have not called me yet. Mayweather did come by my gym last week and he asked me to take that job if it’s offered to me because he told me the fight is going to happen and we’re going to make a lot of money.
It would take me three years at least to get him ready to fight. I don’t think it’s really possible for a MMA fighter to fight a boxer. I don’t think it’s really fair. Mayweather would out box him all day long. I mean Conor McGregor seems like a tough guy and all that, but being a tough guy doesn’t really help you in boxing.
Mayweather is the best boxer in the world and he would not even lose a round against a guy with Conor’s experience. He looks like an okay boxer, he’s a very good MMA fighter, but this is boxing. He’s kind of a beginner at boxing.
