Lee: McGregor ‘like a triathlete trying to swim against Michael Phelps’

Makes Statement

Lee, who has had over 38 professional boxing matches, says that while a Mayweather-McGregor superfight will be entertaining to watch, ultimately McGregor cannot beat Mayweather.

In terms of a contest, I don’t see it being a real fight. Mayweather is the best boxer of our generation. Conor McGregor is a great boxer in UFC but hasn’t had a professional (boxing) fight. It’s like asking a triathlete to swim against Michael Phelps. He has to spread his skills across four or five disciplines and Mayweather is just focused on boxing. If it’s a boxing contest, Mayweather wins hands down. But Conor McGregor is tough and can punch. It’ll be one of the biggest promotions in the history of boxing. It’ll probably do more pay per views and sell more, be unprecedented. It will be a great promotion and a lot of fun watching the build-up.
