Though he considers himself a fan of Conor McGregor, boxer Ricky Hatton doesn’t think there is any way the Irishman lays a glove on Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match.

“I couldn’t hit him. Oscar [De La Hoya] couldn’t hit him. Canelo [Alvarez] couldn’t hit him. Conor’s not going to hit him.”

  • Of course he’s gonna say that. A.) He’s a boxer and it’s insulting to their sport to suggest an MMA fighter with no pro (or amateur, for that matter) boxing experience could come in and beat the BEST guy from the past 20 years. B.) He himself got destroyed by Floyd, so saying some MMA fighter could go in there and do what he couldn’t would be a self-inflicted blow to his own pride.

      Ricky is humble as anyone you will ever meet. As he said, he would love Conner to go to town on mayweather. Problem is, 49 have tried, 47 didn’t even get close.

      For me Oscar came close, 1, maybe 2 round away and that one guy rocked him…. If Conner lands a flush hit to the chin Money goes down, but no-one has managed it. Boxing isn’t MMA, you can’t just pound the guy.

    Every boxer who ever fought Floyd is worried that Conor, a non-boxer, is going to do what they couldn’t. I’d be worried too! Conor’s talent is fxcking scary!

    • Murdock

      And yet boxing and mma are completely different sports, yet most mma fanatics can’t seem to differentiate them.

      • Bakin’ Soda Marketin’

        What does that have to do with these boxers being worried about being shown up by Conor?

        • Murdock

          These boxers know firsthand what they’re talking about whereas you don’t as you’ve probably never seen a boxing match in your life nor do u follow the sport and are too caught up with all the hype by a mismatch of a fight.

          • Bakin’ Soda Marketin’

            Now that we have a date set for the fight, how about a bet? Put up or shut up, bxtch!

          • Murdock

            Go ahead and bet while Mayweather wins every round while making Conor look stupid.

        • Frank

          These guys aren’t worried. They are just speaking truth about the circus that is this fight. Hatton is just pointing out the obvious. He even says he wants Conor to win but knows it’s just not going to happen. Just like the rest of us know as well

    I think this is a most interesting match-up as well. Too many people are writing of Conor and I personally believe that he has the edge going in to this fight, he is bigger, he is more confident, has much more to gain that Floyd and he has great power and he is not slow. I honestly would not be surprised if he knocks Floyd out, I truly believe it can happen.

  • Sean Lanigan

    It’s all about the money. Conner lands a punch, happy days. He doesn’t? Still picks up more money than most of us will see in our life time.

  • Adam

    I do not like Conner McGregor but he has God given talent. His timing is impeccable he is by far one of the best counter punchers in the mma world and he hits hard……. The only way that Conner doesn’t land on Mayweather is if we see another fight like Money vs Pac Man where Mayweather runs away from his opponent all night afraid to tarnish that perfect record…. With that be said I still don’t think McGregor wins at all but these boxing jacktards need to give a man of his caliber a little more respect than what they are… if it wasn’t for Anthoy Joshua boxing would be dead to most true boxing fans………

  • Johnny Sanchez

    Every dollar I can muster is going on Connor – so 20 bucks on Connor….

  • I work from ease and comfort of my residence, with the help of basic gigs which only normally requires from you a Laptop or computer and additionally web connection and I am just more joyful than ever before… After six months with this task and i acquired compensated in whole 36 thousand bucks… Ordinarily I earn roughly eighty bucks/hr and also work for 3 to 4 hours day after day.And great thing relating to this job is usually that you can also supervise your time at the time you get the job done and for how much time as you may wish for and you generate a paycheck a week.—–>>>> VZTURL.COM/bnk55
