Despite never stepping into a boxing ring for a professional fight before, Conor McGregor has been given the task of defeating one of the best defensive fighters of all time in his first bout. Floyd Mayweather Jr. has reigned atop boxing for many years and sits with a 49-0 record coming into the August 26th bout. Clearly McGregor is starting at the top. So you’d think that if he lost, there wouldn’t be much that could bring him back for another trip to the boxing ring.
According to McGregor though, who spoke to the media after an open workout to hype the bout, that isn’t true. He says he intends to continue boxing after this fight no matter what, in addition to continuing his MMA career (via MMA Fighting):
“I love the sport of boxing. Boxing has been dear to my heart my whole, entire life. I will contend in boxing bouts going forward, and I will contend in mixed martial arts bouts going forward. I will rule both with an iron fist, and that’s where my mindset is.”
“I will have fun. I like it over this side. It’s good. The buildup is good, the preparation is good, I love the sport of boxing, I love the sport of mixed martial arts.
