Legendary boxer George Foreman has weighed in on Conor McGregor’s professional future with the 72 year old thinking he knows what is best for the Irish MMA star.
Conor McGregor’s last trip inside the octagon ended in heart break with the ‘Notorious’ losing via a second round knockout against Dustin Poirier and fans have been speculating his next possible step.
McGregor had been leaking info as far back as September of 2020 that he would be facing legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao in side the boxing ring but his loss in the octagon seemed to hamper those plans.
George Foreman was speaking to the Star via The Sun about the whole situation:
“It’s hard for McGregor to accept it but he’s a better puncher than he is in MMA.
“I’d rather see him in boxing matches now.
“I think if he has a fight with Pacquiao he can actually beat him – good rules, over ten rounds, McGregor can beat him.
“He’s already adjusted to boxing, he’s not going to do good in MMA anymore.
“Pacquiao is very good as a matter of fact, but McGregor can beat him in a boxing match.”
Foreman believes McGregor has the skill to beat Manny in a ten round boxing match and McGregor even stated that he used his Poirier fight as practice for a boxing match with Pacquiao.
Do you think McGregor should turn his back on MMA and go pro in boxing to beat Manny Pacquiao?
