Former cruiserweight boxing champion Tony Bellew is giving UFC fighter Conor McGregor absolutely no chance in his proposed bout versus undefeated retired boxer Floyd Mayweather.
Bellew who is fresh from his recent victory over heavyweight David Haye, believes the fight is bound to be completely one-sided in favour of Mayweather.
The Everton Football Club supporter admits to being a fan of McGregor’s and believes that were the two to face off under MMA rules there would only be one winner.
“It is very simple, there is only one winner. I’m a huge MMA fan, I’m a massive UFC fan, and a big Conor McGregor fan. I’m also a Floyd Mayweather fan.”
“If these two guys were to get in a cage it would be over within a minute.”
While most would accept this as truth, Bellew went on to voice his belief of the same being possible in the ring. With even the most biased of McGregor fans willing to admit that Mayweather is likely to breeze past the Dubliner, Bellew emphasised this point.
“These two guys aren’t going to get in a cage, they’re going to get in a ring, and it will be over whenever Floyd Mayweather sees fit.”
Certain clusters of fans believe that should McGregor land a punch, he could rock Mayweather. Tony Bellew does not entertain this notion. Having watched Mayweather box for years now, Bellew has witnessed many great boxers try and fail to land on one of the greatest defensive boxers of all time, if not the greatest.
“Don’t talk nonsense to me and say ‘oh he could land a punch’ ”
“The best fighters of his whole era have tried to land that punch, never mind the guy from a cage.
“So for me there is only one winner in this.”
Bellew acknowledges that both men are likely to receive massive purses from the fight and that this is ultimately the goal between the pair.
