“It’s not something you get to see everyday, a UFC fighter boxing a top class boxer, I definitely see Floyd Mayweather winning by knockout.”
Conor McGregor is a newcomer to both amateur and professional boxing at the highest level, and when asked how she’d fare in a boxing ring against him Adam’s said, “[I’d win] yeah, definitely.
“Yeah definitely in the boxing ring, I don’t know about in the octagon, but in the boxing ring.”
