The Notorious One Conor McGregor has a lot of work to do before he considers getting into a boxing ring with Floyd Mayweather according to Floyd’s Dad.
Floyd Mayweather’s Dad, Floyd Sr was far from impressed when he watched a video of Conor sparring in a gym.
“His boxing skills are nothing. I’d beat his ass myself. I’m not impressed at all. If my son decides he doesn’t want to do it, I’ll do it. I’ll take over and beat his ass myself.”
“I guarantee you I’d beat his ass myself. He can’t whoop me with that right there and I’m a 63 year old man. All he did is do the same thing and throw the same punch over and over.”
Floyd’s old man was responding to this video.
To be fair Floyd Sr has a point. I think there is some much better sparring on show here.
Floyd Mayweather Senior’s Career
The father of the undefeated boxing star was a decent boxer himself. He also trained world champions such as Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Chad Dawson and Muhammad Ali’s daughter Layla Ali.
McGregor vs Mayweather
As talks of a fight continue, the big hurdle seems to be the location. Will the fight be in the boxing ring or an MMA Octagon? Or will Floyd and Conor both have to throw on sumo suits and fight it out in the middle of the Pokies floor at Caesar’s Palace?
We’ll leave the final words to Mr Mayweather Senior…
“Conor McGregor is a bum!”
