Cowherd says McGregor is a far more interesting fighter than Mayweather.
Conor McGregor is our Ali. Floyd Mayweather was undefeated, but he’s boring. He’s all about money. How many people do you know that wear dollar signs on their hats that are fascinating? Floyd Mayweather is not a fascinating personality. He’s not a fascinating self-promoter. He’s not a fascinating fighter. He’s a boring fighter. He’s stylistically capable of shutting people down — you don’t land punches. He’s not captivating…[He’s] not even close to being one of the most interesting. Ali was more interesting. Joe Frazier was more interesting…In the world we live in today, Conor McGregor engages the public, is a self promoter, connects with the fans, can drive pay per view numbers. And it really speaks to the erosion of boxing that Floyd’s fighting him, because there’s no one else to fight.
