Roy Jones Jr. is widely celebrated as one of the greatest boxers to ever enter the ring, holding many titles throughout his career.
When it comes to the l Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather fight, the boxing great believes that Conor is going to have difficulties against Mayweather.
“I can’t really see Conor McGregor dealing with Floyd like that because of that experience factor and the fact that Floyd has proven that he’s actually one of the best pound-for-pound fighters to ever do it,” Jones Jr. Said on The MMA Hour. “So it’s very difficult to see Conor beating Floyd in a boxing match.”
Jones Jr. was pining to face a UFC fighter in a boxing match as well, as it was long rumored that he would face former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva in the boxing ring.
With the fight now official, expect Jones Jr. to be one of the many people who are going to be watching it.
“Of course I’m gonna watch it,” Jones Jr. said. “I want to see how much preparation Conor McGregor did, how seriously did he take it. Did he just do it to score a pay check or did he really go out there and prepare and try to win the fight? I want to see. That would let me know something. That would tell me more about Conor McGregor as a person. I love him as a person so far, but if he goes out and truly [tries to win] the fight, that would tell me more about him.”
