McGregor already planning for Mayweather
SBG Ireland head coach has said Conor McGregor is already planning for Mayweather fight.
He said McGregor has started preparations for a training schedule and they believe the fight is happening.
Kavanagh told FOX Sports in Australia, “In my mind it’s on,” Kavanagh said about the ‘super’ fight. “That’s the mentality we’re in. Like you said, there’s a lot of fingers in the pie on this one. There’s different promotions, different organizations, different commissions that are involved but as far as I’m concerned, I really believe it’s going to happen this year. That’s the mindset I have.
“Let the people in the suits worry about the paperwork. We’re training for it.”
Kavanagh knows it will be a mammoth task to defeat one if the best boxers of all time at his own game. However believes that with only concentrating on a single aspect of MMA, boxing, then the training will be simplified.
“Boxing is one of the 10 skills you need for mixed martial arts. But now we’re only doing boxing so we can drop wrestling and jiu-jitsu and Thai boxing, we can just focus on the boxing,” Kavanagh said.
“So of course we’re getting ready to fight arguably one of the best defensive boxers of all time, but the training will become simplified cause we only have to do boxing so it’s a new challenge I’m excited about.”
