Everyone is talking about whether a Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather fight will ever actually take place with many feeling like if it did, Floyd would end up taking the fight, down to his superior boxing skills. In a recent interview with CSN Fights, Nate Diaz, the only person to have beaten Conor McGregor in recent times in the octagon shared his views on whether he thought Conor stood a chance at winning the fight at all.
You can check out the full video interview below, or read the transcript around his views underneath:
I think McGregor, he’s good and he’s got a good chance of making something happen in two or three rounds.
He’s got an amateur style, where he’s got the good movement and good punches for six, eight minutes. I would say he’s got a puncher’s chance, if anything.
Anybody can be good for … six, seven minutes — anybody — and they all have that puncher’s chance. But [Floyd is] ready to go round after round and he’s gonna be a hard person to get a hold of, so it’s gonna be rough one.
Well there you go, seems like he’s given Conor an outside chance, even if he wasn’t too complimentary about the whole thing. I would love to see the fight go down, but know it’s probably never ever going to happen.
