Add former world champion Adrien Broner to the list of boxers that doesn't give Conor McGregor much of a chance in a boxing match.
Broner spoke to fighthype.com and said McGregor wouldn't last one round in a boxing ring and that the UFC Lightweight champion should stay in the octagon.
“I’m not being biased; I’m just telling the truth,” said Broner. “If he came in our world, we’ll stop him in one round. We got a chance. We leaving them over there. That cage shit, that’s all you.”
Broner joins other boxers, such as Paulie Malignaggi, Amir Khan and Floyd Mayweather, to name a few, that would either like to fight McGregor or doesn't give McGregor much of a chance in a boxing match. Cries for a rumored McGregor vs. Mayweather match had been going on for several months, but only gotten even stronger since McGregor defeated Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 to become the UFC Lightweight champion and also got issued a boxing license in the state of California.
Broner has a fight scheduled for February 18 against Adrian Granados at the U.S Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. This is Broner’s first fight since losing his WBA light welterweight title earlier this year when he failed to make weight for his fight against Ashley Theophane last April.
The 27-year-old is a four-weight world champion and was in line to fight WBA super lightweight champion Ricky Burns, but negotiations fell and Broner chose to fight Granados in February.
