SBG Ireland head coach John Kavanagh predicts Conor McGregor will shun the limelight once he retires.
McGregor, one of the UFC’s biggest stars, is not shy in coming forward and being the centre of attention within MMA.
He also has the boxing world talking just now with his rants at the boxing media about taking over and his potential fight with Floyd Mayweather.
Thankfully Kavanagh doesn’t see him leaving combat sports for a while yet.
“Like any sport there’s a sell by date”, Kavanagh said to the Irish Mirror. “But Conor is 28, he’s a baby in the sport. I look at Bernard Hopkins who’s 50, winning world title fights so Conor isn’t going anywhere soon. I predict once he’s done in the sport he will disappear. People think he likes the limelight, he doesn’t. He just likes fighting and promoting fights.”
“Who knows, maybe he’ll go to Hollywood and become the next Schwarzenegger.”
Who knows indeed.
