Conor McGregor gets in boxing reporter’s face with bold prediction
Conor McGregor continues to do what he does best: talk a big game.
McGregor was in New York on Friday night to walk Mick Conlan into the ring for the Irishman’s professional boxing debut. Conlan won his fight in three rounds, which gave McGregor plenty of time to talk afterwards. McGregor did just that.
The famous UFC fighter got into the face of ESPN boxing writer Dan Rafael and promised some big things.

There has been talk for months about McGregor switching from MMA to boxing to face Mayweather. Mayweather thinks it would be an easy fight, which is why he’s eager to come out of retirement for it and make countless millions. UFC president Dana White recently said he thinks the fight will happen.
