UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor is making his highly anticipated professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather on August 26.
Just a short time after that fight, another super fight is taking placing between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez, but McGregor isn’t much of a fan of either competitor.
“I’m not really too much of a fan of either of those,” McGregor said at a media scrum. “I think Canelo’s a little but stuck, a little bit flat on his feet. When I watch footage of him I just see him getting peppered — he has no feet under him. Golovkin I think came into camp, for this preparation, badly out of shape. I’m looking at him badly out of shape up in Big Bear and I just see a drained individual.”
McGregor has faced his fair share of criticism from Alvarez and GGG, mostly for the spectacle that his super fight has become.
The Irishman also doesn’t feel that either fighter is on the same level as he is when it comes to being in fight shape.
“So, although they’re supposedly up there as well, I don’t really think they are,” says McGregor.
Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather takes place on Saturday, August 26 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
