Former 4 time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield is willing to help UFC celebrity Conor McGregor prepare for a potential go-sport boxing match with WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao.
McGregor made his boxing debut in August of 2017, when he suffered a ten round TKO loss at the hands of Floyd Mayweather.
McGregor all started neatly, however he became unable to sustain that success as Mayweather broke him down because the contest performed out.
After that loss, McGregor lower back to the world of combined martial arts and continues to compete for the UFC.
but closing year, McGregor all started calling for a boxing suit with Pacquiao – and each warring parties are represented by way of the identical administration business.
If he became approached for his assist, Holyfield could be open to the conception of passing on some advantage to McGregor.
“If i used to be requested then i’d exit to him and say to him, ‘You know what, do that component’,” Holyfield instructed solar recreation.
“The component is that I’m not a ‘train’. I may give him first rate tips, however I’d have somebody else hang the hand pads. I don’t be aware of how to hang hand pads! I got here up hitting hands pads. So, it’s like Mayweather, he doesn’t recognize the way to hang hand pads like coaches do. but he changed into a very good fighter.
“The issue is i do know boxing, but I realize the extra you inform a person what to do it’s going to make him slow because a guy can get confused while in a combat with too a great deal assistance. here’s what you should do. So, what I’m speaking about is the grownup with the talents – Manny in opposition t McGregor – is always the man who’s been doing it longer. Pacquiao received’t need to believe tons because it’s going to be a boxing in shape compared to Conor McGregor.”
Pacquiao has been out of the ring since July of 2019, when he captured the WBA title with a twelve round determination over undefeated Keith Thurman.
