Conor McGregor willing to fight Canelo Alvarez in boxing match
By Daddy: Conor McGregor says he’s in returning to the ring for a boxing match in opposition to famous person Canelo Alvarez.
The 34-year-old McGregor, whose MMA profession seems to be performed, says he is aware of Canelo (59-2-2, 39 KOs) is on the decline and has no issues combating him. Followers would have a subject day trashing Canelo if he selected to fight McGregor as a substitute of dealing with David Benavidez or Dmitry Bivol.
It will affirm to these on the fence who’re nonetheless undecided whether or not Canelo is a cherry-picker. His final fight in opposition to John Ryder ought to have made it clear, however for these sluggish on the uptake, they’d lastly get it if Canelo selected to cherry-pick a fight in opposition to McGregor as a substitute of the killers ready on assassin’s row to bloodbath him.
It will likely be a predictable transfer if Canelo takes the tender path by steering his sinking ship away from the predators in the direction of safer waters to take a fight in opposition to McGregor.
If Canelo phases a battle between himself and McGregor on the large 100,000-seat Aztec Stadium in Mexico City, they’ll most likely fill it and make good cash on ticket gross sales. It will be enjoyable to see McGregor trash-talking Canelo unmercifully throughout the press conferences.
Would Canelo management himself and resist belting McGregor as he did Caleb Plant throughout their kick-off press convention in 2021?
McGregor fought Floyd Mayweather Jr in a boxing match in August 2017 and was knocked out in the tenth spherical. The previous two-division UFC champion McGregor made $130 million for that fight.
If McGregor thinks a fight between him and Canelo could make wherever close to that sort of cash, he’s sadly mistaken.
McGregor’s recognition in his sport has arguably declined as a result of his profession evaporated after his huge payday in opposition to Mayweather. The Irish native McGregor hasn’t fought in a boxing match since that fight, and followers gained’t be keen to pay $100 and even $60 per family on PPV to watch Canelo him.
Mayweather-McGregor offered for $100 on pay-per-view, and naive followers bought the fight in big numbers, ensuing in the occasion bringing in a file 4.3 million buys. That’s a file that also stands right this moment. The one method Canelo would have an interest in combating Conor McGregor in a boxing match is that if he believes their fight would deliver in these sorts of purchase numbers.
Even when Canelo-McGregor introduced in half of these totals at 2 million buys, it could be an enormous quantity of dough for the Mexican star and rather more than he’s made in any of his fights throughout his 19-year skilled profession. It doesn’t appear sensible that many saps can be willing to buy a mismatch between Canelo and McGregor.
“I’m a southpaw, John Ryder’s a southpaw, Billy Joe Saunders is a southpaw. I’ve seen strategies, I’ve seen issues I do, and I do know he’s waning. I’d fight Canelo no f***ing downside,” mentioned Conor McGregor to The MAC Life about his curiosity in returning to the boxing ring to tackle Canelo Alvarez.
If McGregor first proved himself contained in the boxing ring by beating some prime fighters at 168 or 160, a fight between him and Canelo would go over properly. These can be glorious choices for McGregor to fight to show he deserves a Canelo payday:
David Morrell Jr
McGregor might take his choose of combating any of these guys, however this author doesn’t see him beating any of them.
The truth is, McGregor would possible get knocked out in the primary spherical by all of them except they selected to carry him, which is what many boxing and believed Mayweather did.
