Roach: McGregor can’t beat Mayweather


Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach believed UFC superstar Conor McGregor has no chance of beating Floyd Mayweather Jr., if their fight pushes through.

But admitted he’s also excited to see them fight.

In an interview with FightHype TV, Roach was quoted as saying: “I’d love to see it, he’s fun to watch. He’s a character. [But] he’s not that good of a fighter. He’ll let his hands go and so forth. He’s a little wild.”

“He’s putting himself on a very high level. I think he’s more of a four-round fighter at this point.”

“He’s [Mayweather] not a risk-taker anymore. He’s not the most exciting guy in the world. But, he’s still a great boxer. [McGregor] can’t beat guys like that, in my opinion.” (Axel Roman)
