Bob Arum: “Floyd vs Conor is just talk. It is absolute nonsense”

Rarely do I ever agree with anything boxing promoter Bob arum says. After watching this video posted by TMZ sports, Mr Arum seems to have a better grasp on ‘Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather’ than most.

Conor McGregor boxing

“Let me tell you something… Conor McGregor is not a boxer. If they box with boxing rules and boxing gloves, a novice will beat Conor McGregor. He has no experience as a boxer. On the other hand, if they did that cage thing, Floyd wouldn’t have a chance.”

Damn, Bob Arum! You had me at ‘That Cage Thing’.

“So it’s just talk and it’s absolute nonsense that these guys are going to fight each other.”

On Dana’s $25 million offer:

“Dana White is playing a game. Floyd is calling McGregor out… the point is McGregor has a contract with the UFC. No fight, even if McGregor wanted, can be done without the UFC. This is Dana White’s way of establishing that that point.”
