Podcast mogul, comedian and UFC commentator Joe Rogan says he wouldn’t commentate on a potential boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.
In a pure boxing match it would be strange to see why an MMA commentator would be in the mix to joint call the fight, given the fact it would be under boxing rules.
Some have suggested that there should be someone from the MMA world on the commentary, to represent the sport of MMA for ‘their guy’ in McGregor, so to so speak.
But it’s apples and oranges.
They are two completely different sports and it’s hard to see why that would make sense.
Here’s why Joe Rogan says he wouldn’t commentate on the potential boxing match:
Good old Joe – it seems as though he’d rather do his podcast and get drunk with friends watching the fight.
Rogan commentates on the UFC’s big fights and also works as a comedian – as well as running one of the world’s biggest podcasts.
If this Mayweather vs McGregor entertainment circus does come to fruition under boxing rules, expect boxing commentators to be calling the fight.
Although never say never. Stranger things have happened.
The colorful, outspoken but always entertaining Stephen A Smith of ESPN covered his first boxing match as a a live commentator in November 2016 – when he called the Manny Pacquiao vs Jessie Vargas fight.
