The UFC’s and combat sports’ most debatable star, Conor McGregor, will make an electrifying return to the octagon this weekend. Prior to this outing, the ‘Notorious’ has been involved in bulk of interviews and podcasts. Recently, he expressed his notions on the upcoming exhibition bout between boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and YouTuber Logan Paul.
Paul shared this video of the Irishman on his official Instagram account, wherein he cited ‘Money’ Mayweather as ‘fat’.
McGregor said, “You know fair play to them. Fair play to the Logan guy. Getting in with Floyd, I’m excited to see how that goes. Floyd looks a bit fat to me, man!”
The American YouTuber turned boxer cracked up laughing when he heard McGregor’s statement on the boxing legend. He even added a photo of Mayweather to the above video, making it seem even more hilarious.
McGregor wished nothing but luck to both the boxers. He said he’ll be excited to see this fight and Paul’s approach towards the undefeated boxer.
It sets the American duo to confront each other on February 20 in a six-round bout. ‘Money’ Mayweather will return to the squared circle after almost a couple of years. In his last exhibition outing, Mayweather took on Tenshin Nasukawa and finished him in just a round.
Even though Logan Paul has a mammoth frame compared to the former five-division champion, the 50-0 boxer will undeniably walk into this fight as a favorite.
One of the greatest boxers of this era, Floyd Mayweather retired in 2017 after viciously beating Conor McGregor. Even after hanging his gloves from the sport, Mayweather hasn’t let boxing walk off his life. Till today, he continues his rigorous training regimes to keep himself fit and ultra-active.
He even coaches a few young prospects in his gym, providing them insights with his unparalleled experience.
The 43-year-old is going through grilling workouts yet again for his preparations ahead of the Logan Paul fight. At his current age, many boxers do not intend to put so much of pressure onto their physique, but the former champion does it hassle-free.
He is looking to put on another intriguing show for the boxing fans on February 20.
