According to Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach, he was approached to train UFC world champion Conor McGregor, who is linked in recent headlines to a potential crossover showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the fall.

McGregor was upset back in March when he was submitted by Nate Diaz in a big upset. McGregor moved up two divisions for the fight.

Roach said there was no mention of a Mayweather fight when he was approached by McGregor's team

Roach is interested and asked McGregor to come down to the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California.

"No [talk of Mayweather], just to train him," Roach told "They did ask me if I'll train him. I said 'sure, bring him down.' I'd like to see [him], meet the guy and see what he has. He seems like a nice guy."

If Roach is asked to prepare McGregor for a boxing match, against Mayweather or another fighter, the veteran trainer is unsure if he'll be capable of sculpting McGregor's hand skills to compete on that level.

"No [I don't know if I could do that], I don't even know what level he's at right now. I couldn't say that without working with him. He seems like a good kickboxer. That's all I've seen of him. But as a boxer, I've never seen him box," Roach said.
