MAYWEATHER WILL FIND IT CONVENIENT TO BEAT MCGREGOR - CARL FROCH

Carl Froch feels that the potential boxing match between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather would not be a difficult task for the latter boxer due to his capability to knock out any of the top level boxers.

The clash of the two boxers almost came into fulfilment in January after the UFC president Dana White publicly offered both men a £20m ($25m) purse.

Many fighters in the boxing world have zeroed McGregor’s chances of defeating the popular Mayweather several times, meanwhile, Froch, the former WBA, WBC and IBF super-middleweight champion, has added his name to that growing list by reportedly saying: "McGregor against Mayweather is a mismatch, let us be honest” in an interview with Fight Hub TV.

Froch believes that it is too easy for Mayweather to defeat any boxer at any time, even without training. He said: "I think he would not even need to train. It is difficult for top fighters, top boxers, that are really, really top-level boxers, world champions to get near Mayweather and land a shot successfully. So there is no way a 'cage fighter' is going to get in there and near victory.

He noted that if there was going to be any match between Mayweather and McGregor at any time, it most probably was not going to be a fight, neither would it be a boxing match. For him, he says he would want to see it first to know what it exactly would be.

Froch further cited his past sparring sessions with former UFC fighters Dan Hardy and Paul Daley as a reason why Mcgregor would struggle to defeat ‘Money’ Mayweather.

Many in the boxing world have doubted Mayweather’s eagerness to come out of boxing to face McGregor. Froch does not foresee that happening and believes the fight would not be a competitive one.
