Kahn wants McGregor MMA fight

19 Jul, 2016

Khan says Mayweather would most likely not take a fight with McGregor.

I don’t think Mayweather would ever take it. When Mayweather knows he’s in a real fight, he just backs out of it. It was good hype while it lasted but I knew it was never going to happen. If it did happen, it would be the biggest fight ever. It would’ve been a great business move, but I don’t think it would’ve been a good fight. I don’t think Mayweather would want to fight under MMA rules. I look at it more as a publicity stunt. People were talking about it. It worked while it lasted, and they brought the hype up.

However, he says he is interested in fighting McGregor under MMA rules.

I would get into a cage and I would fight in MMA rules, so that’s the difference between me and Mayweather. I would definitely give it a go. It’s something to learn, as well. I’m at that age where I’m still learning, adapting and getting better. So I still have time under me as well. I’m still a young lad and got loads left in me…As a fighter, that’s a fight I would take. McGregor is a massive name in MMA, and I’m a big name in boxing, so globally, I think it would be a massive fight…Even if I started to train MMA next year, I’d only be 30 years old. I could stop and train for a full year and become a good MMA fighter…McGregor has some great boxing skills. A good boxer will always win a MMA fight.
