Roach: I was asked to train McGregor

11 May, 2016

Roach says he was asked to train McGregor.

They said, ‘will you train him?’ I said ‘Tell him to show up’. I like helping people. But I’m not going to train him to fight Mayweather. I’d have to train him for at least three years to get him ready for [Floyd] Mayweather…He’s a little green, but c’mon. He’s good at MMa, but come on…If you fight boxing rules the boxer will win, if you fight MMA rules the MMA guy will win…If he comes I’ll help him for sure.

Freddie Roach "They asked me to train McGregor. Wont train him to fight Mayweather!"
