McGregor: No Fan of Canelo, Golovkin - I Want Lomachenko-Rigo

UFC superstar Conor McGregor is less than a week away from his Showtime Pay-Per-View showdown with five division world champion Floyd Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs), which takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Three weeks later, at the same Las Vegas venue, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) will collide with IBF, WBA, IBO, WBC middleweight king Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) in the main event of an HBO Pay-Per-View card.

McGregor, who makes his professional debut in a boxing ring, is not a big fan of Canelo or Golovkin.

He's not really impressed with Canelo's abilities and feels Golovkin is not looking to be in the best physical shape for this training camp.

But the boxers that McGregor does like - are two-time Olympic gold medal winners Vasyl Lomachenko and Guillermo Rigondeaux. The two fighters are close to a deal to face each other on December 9th at The Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden.

That fight is a hardcore fan's dream, to see Rigondeaux move up by two weight divisions to face Lomachenko for the WBO super featherweight title. And McGregor is also salivating to watch that fight.

"Canelo and Golovkin, I’m not really too much of a fan of either of those. I think Canelo’s a little bit stuck, a little bit flat on his feet. When I watch footage of him, I see him just getting peppered, he has no feet under him. Golovkin, I think came to camp for this preparation badly out of shape. I’m looking at him badly out of shape up in Big Bear and I just see a drained individual," McGregor said.

“But I like the lighter guys. Lomachenko and Rigondeaux is a fight that I’m eager to see. Floyd’s young kid, Gervonta (Davis) is okay, he’s good as well, good, strong kid. Maybe one or two more fights, I’d like to see him in the mix there.”

[QUOTE=lparm;17970410]You're the most delusional gimp I've seen on this forum. Do you really think the best mma fighter in the world will suddenly disappear if he loses? Do you think his 155 UFC title magically goes away and he ceases…

[QUOTE=GhostofDempsey;17967629]Once he gets humiliated in the ring by Floyd, he will take his money and run. I doubt he'll want to be knocked out a second time by a pro boxer. I would favor Chris Algieri to knock this clown…
