MCGREGOR WAS KO'D DURING SPARRING FOR FLOYD MAYWEATHER
While Conor McGregor has spent the last week going toe to toe with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on the world tour, former world champion Jessie Vargas cast further doubt on whether McGregor can hang with Mayweather in the ring. In an interview with Villainfy Media, Vargas said McGregor got knocked out during a sparring session in preparation for his Aug. 26 bout with Mayweather. While considered a great striker in a mixed martial arts capacity, many question whether McGregor has bitten off more than he can chew in a fight against Mayweather. According to OddsShark, McGregor is a 7-2 underdog against Mayweather. McGregor's months of training should pay off with regard to making him an improved boxer, but he's facing a nearly impossible task of bridging a gap with one of the best defensive boxers in the history of the sport.
