Michael Conlan has weighed in on the highly-anticipated McGregor/Mayweather fight.
The Irish MMA fighter is set to take on the unbeaten Mayweather in a boxing match on the 26th of August in the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas.
Michael, who turned professional last year, is a big fan of Conor, but admits that it is almost impossible that the Notorious will win.
“You know yourself, some people are realists. But Irish people, no matter what, you’ll back your own. We think Ireland are going to win the World Cup every time we’re in it.
“Like, there’s always that chance that gets people dreaming. To be honest, it would probably be bad for boxing if Conor won, but f*ck it, I’m an Irishman. I hope he does it,” he told the 42.
While he remains slightly more sceptical than most Irish fans, he admits that anything could happen.
“Look, it’s a fight which is almost impossible for Conor, but as I’ve said, in the sport of boxing anything is possible.”
