Manny Pacquiao: “Mayweather-McGregor could be boring because Conor has no chance”
On August 26 UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor will step inside the ring to take on undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in a pay-per-view boxing match that is poised to break all the records. The bout took months of negotiation before an agreement was reached, but if things had gone south, Manny Pacquiao was ready to save the day by stepping in, according to Top Rank CEO Bob Arum.
In a recent interview with Yahoo, Pacquiao was quite ironic about the upcoming fight.
“McGregor has no chance in this fight. In fact, it could be very boring. […] There is no way he will be able to land a meaningful punch on Floyd. How could he? He has no professional experience in boxing.”
He said that Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs. Gennady “GGG” Golovkin fight as the better one to watch:
“The real fight and the best fight is Golovkin vs. Canelo. The best vs. the best. That’s the fight I will be watching.”
