50-0 boxing icon, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has offered to team up with ‘Team McGregor” throughout the six weeks remaining in camp to help prepare the Dubliner for the mouth-watering battle with arch-rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Speaking with entertainment outlet TMZ Sport, Mayweather spoke of his intent to have Conor spend some honing his boxing repertoire at the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas:
“I’ll talk with Dana, I may talk with Conor to get some tickets. But leading up to the fight, when McGregor gets to Las Vegas, we’d like him to train at… I know the UFC has got the training facility – but we’d like him to work out at the Mayweather Boxing Club.”
Both men faced off in Las Vegas in August 2017, with Floyd scoring a tenth round TKO victory over Conor in the Irishman’s premier walk to the ring. Despite showing some promising counter striking in the early rounds, “Money” Mayweather began finding his range on Conor from the eight-round onward, forcing referee Robert Byrd to step in and close the show late on.
As of yet, it is unknown whether or not McGregor will take up Mayweather on his offer, but in recent headlining trips to Sin City where Conor has faced the likes of Chad Mendes, José Aldo and Nate Diaz, McGregor has spent the remaining two to three weeks in Nevada to acclimatize for upcoming bouts.
