Word is that Conor McGregor agreed to fight Luke Keeler in a boxing match, after an intense argument regarding his alleged assault in a pub in Dublin in April.
By now we have all seen the footage which appears to show McGregor punching an elderly man because he refused a drink of his whisky.
“I’d be happy to put him in his place if he had the balls to step in a ring again” said Luke Keeler, middleweight champ. Luke has now also brought to light that he and McGregor had a heated phone call, and the McGregor then verbally accepted an offer to a fight.
Speaking to IrishBoxing.com Keeler said:
“I don’t want to get into it too much, but I know he wasn’t happy about the call out. He is not happy.
“The fight community in Ireland is small enough and Crumlin isn’t too far from Ballyfermot- and I heard he wasn’t happy with the timing of it.
“He rang me and we had a few words. I told him the fight was there to be made and he was all for it. He agreed to fight over the phone.”
Unfortunately for Conor, his last big boxing experience was losing to Floyd Mayweather in 2017.
MTK Global, who manages Keeler is reportedly discussing making the fight between the two Irish men happen. Keeler thinks McGregor is all talk so hopes having MTK deal with it will ensue it actually happens.
Keeler said: “I agree it could be just all talk.
“Whether he has the balls or not to get in the ring again, never mind with me, we will have to see.
“He could have been just trying to front up or speaking in anger, but it got to the stage where I felt comfortable enough passing onto my management team.
