Hunter, who trains Andre Ward, the current number one pound for pound boxer, says that McGregor should simply rush Mayweather.
[If I was training McGregor I’d] condition him to be a straight brawler…forget boxing…just get in tip-top shape where you go in and literally run at him and just throw. I would definitely take the blueprint of Maidana, and just throw. If he’s trying to box and be technical about it, it’s not gonna work…Just run at him and fight. He can’t do it continuously, but y’know, when you have a chance.
Floyd Mayweather Sr. says that, not only will his son beat McGregor, but that he can beat him in the ring.
He don’t want that fight. Floyd’s gonna turn him upside down. That be like you and Floyd in the ring! [Laughs]. He looks bad in the ring. That’s a done deal right there. They’ve already showed the best that he’s got…He ain’t nothing but talk! I told them people on the TV already, forget about Floyd. Let’s throw Floyd to the side. Here I am, I’m a 64-year-old man and I’ll beat your ass. I’ll beat the shit out of McGregor! Anytime he wants it, let’s go.
Mayweather Snr. responds to the video of McGregor sparring in boxing gloves.
In would love to see [a match against my son], ‘cos I know Conor get knocked out…Who is he? His boxing skills is nothing. I’d beat his ass myself… I’m not impressed at all. If my son decided that he didn’t want to do it I’d take it over and I’d do it. And I’d beat his ass. He can’t whoop me with that there, and I’m a 63-year-old man…Conor’s a bum!
Mayweather Senior says McGregor could not beat his son even if he trained him.
Brother, that right here is a no-can-do deal. I can’t make Conor McGregor turn around from being a caveman fighter, I don’t know what he is. I’ll let my son fight McGregor and I’ll take on his trainer, whoever he is. I’ll knock his trainer out, I don’t even know who he is and I will knock him straight cold.
Mayweather Snr. comments on McGregor against his son.
Floyd would whoop someone like his ass anyway. A jab would take care his ass all day…I think Conor McGregor is a talker not a do-er. Whatever he do in the ring…they’re not gonna let him get away with sweeping the feet, elbows and all that…Floyd can hit him jabs and stuff all night and cut him up.
Then he watches the McGregor-Alvarez fight.
I ain’t gonna say his fundamentals ain’t good. I don’t think his fundamentals aren’t bad. It ain’t up there with the man…My son gonna cut his beard for him.
Mayweather Senior talks about how much he’d pay McGregor to fight.
I’d give him a penny. That’s a joke right there…If he know what’s good for his ass, he’d better go somewhere and sit down. Messing with the joy boy? No. If they want me to fight him. I’ll fight him. I’ll knock his ass out. If he fight with no feet and stuff that’s a whole different story. My son will whoop his ass anyway. I would put him to sleep. I’d put it on his ass for real.
Is McGregor the bigger trash talker:
They all talk the shit they want to talk. But, guess what, you see, I see, the world will see. when they get in the ring. Conor McGregor ain’t gonna whoop no damn Floyd Mayweather. No way…Elephant gonna step on him. Mash him. Crush him.
In an interview on Mayweather’s official boxing channel, Mayweather Snr. talks about the possibility of a fight with McGregor.
I think it would be bigger than Pacman and Floyd. You just wait and see.
On McGregor’s chances of beating his son:
Zero percent. I’m not going to say that it would be the quickest knock out of Floyd’s career. I’m not gonna say that. But it would be one of the most humiliating fights that anyone could see.
On whether the fight would actually be made:
Oh hell yes. It’s an easy test. You know what Floyd’s gonna do.
