Welcome to the world of the wildly misinformed. Undefeated welterweight boxing stud, Keith Thurman, has no clue what he’s talking about when it comes to MMA. Like most boxers, he has the mentality of, ‘A fight is a fight’. I’m here to say, “No, Mr Thurman. Just, no”.
I do, however, believe he’d beat the brakes off of Conor McGregor or anyone else in his weight class in a boxing match.
“I’ll take em. I’ll take Conor in the Octagon. It ain’t like he’s throwing a lot of kicks anyway. I’ll take Conor in the Octagon, you know.
Yo Conor. Do you want a real fight? You want to feel what a real punch feels like? Holla at ya boy. My name is ‘One Time’ and we can do it, just one time. Because that’s all we’ll need.”
Sorry, he lost me at, “It ain’t like he’s throwing a lot of kicks”.
