Freddie Roach Says Conor McGregor Trained At His Gym & Sucked Against Pro Boxers
Well, isn’t this just SHOCKING? An MMA fighter struggling to hold his own against professional boxers. Who could have possibly seen this coming?
The answer to that question is EVERYBODY, including Legendary boxing trainer Freddie Roach, who has trained Pacquiao, Amir Khan, Mike Tyson, and many others. Roach recently stated that MMA star Conor McGregor was at one of his gyms recently training with pro level boxers & he was not performing well against them at all.
“As I told Mayweather, I said, ‘it would take me three years at least to get him ready to fight you.’ I don’t really think it’s possible for an MMA fighter to fight a boxer and I don’t even really think it’s fair. Depends on what rules you fight under, one person has too big of an advantage. Mayweather would outbox him all day long. Conor McGregor seems like a tough guy and all that but being a tough guy doesn’t really help you in boxing…
But I do know that he’s trained at Wild Card West which is one of my gyms on the west side and he’s sparring with a couple of my professional fighters over there and I hear he’s not doing that well with my professionals.
Mayweather is the best boxer in the world and I think he would absolutely not even lose a round against a guy with Conor’s experience. I mean, he looks like an okay boxer, he’s a very good MMA fighter but the thing is this is boxing and he’s kind of a beginner at boxing. It probably would take me almost three years to get him ready for a fight against a guy like Mayweather.”
“If I can help him I would definitely do that. I work twelve hours a day in the gym, I like to stay busy in the gym. I think we could help him and if he did come and ask I would love to help him.”
You heard it first from Freddie Roach. It would take 3 years of training to get McGregor ready to fight a 42-year-old Floyd Mayweather. Nobody wants to see that.
