Eddie Hearn picked Katie Taylor over Conor McGregor for a few reasons

The multiple title holder managed to ace past her toughest test and Hearn couldn’t refrain from showering words of praise. This latest match marked her 21st victory inside the ring, extending her record to an unbeaten (21-0-0).

He said,” The fourth was treacherous, and the fifth was tough but she came back and how she managed to win the 6th, the 7th, the 8th. The 10th was very close, and it was an amazing fight. It’s just a thrilling fight, and I have said before, the way women’s boxing has longevity, and sustainability, is for its quality.”

Hearn continued to shower words of praise, “So tonight forget male or female, we saw one of the greatest fights in the history of Madison Square Garden. Amazing so proud of Katie Taylor, ‘The greatest Irish athlete of all time in my opinion. She is such a humble individual, such a great role model, such a great ambassador, and thank you to everyone for supporting this fight.”

The UFC star is seeing a bad patch in the last few years, as the Irish mixed martial artist has failed to record more than one win. Since 2018, McGregor has lost the majority of his bouts, with two back-to-back losses in 2021. These supposed bad days at the office have led to his unfortunate fall from grace and in rankings as well.
