Conlan: ‘I would love to carry the tricolour’ for McGregor against Mayweather

Interview

In an interview Conlan talks about his upcoming fight in New York, and McGregor.

Irish fans are the best fans in the world. I’m getting 200 people coming from Ireland, more maybe. That’s just a rough estimate. I’m very, very grateful and honored to have them out here…I’ve known Conor since 2015. Ireland’s a small country: there’s eight million people in New York, and four million in Ireland so it’s a small place and we stick together…We talked and we started to grow our friendship. After the Diaz loss he got me to get him sparring partners for him…Our relationship has grown and grown…It’s an honour for me to have him [carry the tricolour for me], and an honour for him, having the hopes of the nation on both our shoulders…I would love to [carry the tricolour for him when he fights Mayweather]…Floyd’s the greatest fighter that there’s ever been. So it’s almost an impossible task for Conor. But anything can happen in boxing.
