Former two-division champion Conor McGregor took to social media and reminisced on arguably one of the biggest moments in sports. ‘The Notorious’ fondly looked back at his 2017 professional boxing debut against the undefeated icon, Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather. The two squared off at the T-Mobile Arena in what would become a top-selling event.
The Irish fighter did a thorough analysis of the aforementioned fight that was viewed by both casual as well as hardcore combat fans. The appeal of the match-up rested on whether McGregor’s supreme MMA striking would carry forward into boxing. The perennial optimist, Conor McGregor still believes that his skill set would be enough on a given night.
This is not the first time that McGregor has shared his insight into the fight. Chiefly, the Irishman has always been involved in analyzing his own work and attempting to make adjustments. Although he displayed great success in the early moments of the Mayweather bout, the boxing Hall of Famer outclassed him. Floyd famously stopped ‘The Notorious‘ in the tenth-round of their fight.
Conor McGregor drops yet another hint of a boxing return
The UFC megastar recently announced that he would step into the boxing ring once more. Moreover, he surprised fight fans with the confirmation that Manny Pacquiao was to be his opponent. There was speculation that the aforementioned bout would take place due to the fact that they shared a management agency.
What’s more, Manny Pacquiao has shown an interest to lace up the gloves against the Irishman. Manny spoke out through his assistant via ESPN and more or less confirmed his willingness to scrap against the UFC standout.
The fight will serve as Conor’s second pro boxing bout, and the WBA Super welterweight champion will be a game opponent. Additionally, the contest will surely be yet another blockbuster affair as both athletes are bonafide stars. With McGregor and Pacquiao as headlining features, the event could rake in the highest numbers in boxing history.
