Floyd Mayweather Jr. has extended an invitation to Conor McGregor to train at Mayweather Boxing Club ahead of his UFC 229 bout against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“When McGregor gets to Las Vegas … I know UFC got a training facility, but we’d like for him to work out at the Mayweather Boxing Club,” Mayweather told.
Mayweather refused to offer a prediction but did say that McGregor will make things difficult for Nurmagomedov.
“I don’t really have a prediction because I’ve never seen the guy fight that’s facing Conor McGregor – from what I know he’s a hell of a guy that’s on the ground – hell of a grappler – and he can wrestle,” Mayweather said.
“But, you know, the fans want to see you stand up and fight. That’s what the fans like to see. But, Conor McGregor, he’s a tough competitor, like I said before, Conor McGregor’s not gonna back down from anyone, he’s not scared, he’s a warrior.”
Sunday marked the one-year anniversary of McGregor’s loss to Mayweather, which he reflected on in an Instagram post.
