Conor McGregor has only boxed professionally once in his entire combat career. But it was a big fight, possibly the biggest any boxer would want.
In 2017, Conor went toe-to-toe with arguably the greatest boxer of this generation in Floyd Mayweather Jr. And even though “Notorious” was stopped by “Money” in the tenth round, it was a huge accomplishment for Conor to even get the fight.
Now, another pro boxer wants his shot at McGregor, as Keith Thurman took the chance to challenge the fiery Irishman.
“You know you make more money in the boxing ring anyway,” he said, addressing Conor McGregor via TMZ Sports. “Box me, Conor! Next pay-per-view fight after Pacquiao.”
Thurman wasn’t overly-impressed with what he saw from McGregor against Floyd.
“[In boxing], the advantage is do you have skills with the left? Do you have skills with the right? Do you have footwork?” he said. “One thing [Conor] doesn’t have is conditioning! He does not have conditioning. He is not ready for these championship fights.”
“Floyd walked him down and beat him like he was playing ‘Fight Night!’”
McGregor has hinted at future boxing fights, but he is eying a do-over against the now-retired Mayweather.
“Notorious” will look to make his MMA comeback sometime this summer, while Thurman puts his 29-0 record against Manny Pacquiao on July 20.
