The WBO middleweight champion weighs in on the Floyd Mayweather – Conor McGregor saga.
Mayweather vs McGregor speculation took another turn over the last day after it emerged that Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach was approached by Mayweather himself, who apparently claimed that the fight will definitely take place and urged Roach to accept any offer McGregor makes as pertaining to the hiring of his boxing coach services to help him in the bout.
Circus act to some, hype frenzy to others, either way, the McGregor – Mayweather talk isn’t appearing to go away anytime soon, ahead of what is being mooted as a potential boxing rules meeting between the two combat sports athletes.
Indeed many rightly give no chance to McGregor in a boxing fight with Mayweather, with WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman feeling all he has is a puncher’s chance.
WBO middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders is the latest from the boxing world to chime in and give his thoughts on how a match-up would go in his view.
When speaking to Kugan Cassius of IFL TV, Saunders said:
“I’ll tell ya what’s going to happen. McGregor is going to eat that many jabs he’s going to be a super-heavyweight by the end of it. Mayweather would be cautious of going into him, because he’ll know he’ll be strong on the inside. He’ll just keep him long, pop-pop, pick-pick all night. That’s all it will be, for how ever many rounds it goes.”
In keeping with Billy Joe’s prediction, here’s another candid but 3D interpretation from one Twitter user on how a potential Mayweather-McGregor spectacle might unfold:
