Former cruiserweight champion Bellew says that McGregor has no chance against Mayweather.
It is very simple, there is only one winner. I’m a huge MMA fan, I’m a massive UFC fan, and a big Conor McGregor fan. I’m also a Floyd Mayweather fan. If these two guys were to get in a cage it would be over within a minute. [But] These two guys aren’t going to get in a cage, they’re going to get in a ring, and it will be over whenever Floyd Mayweather sees fit. Don’t talk nonsense to me and say, ‘oh he could land a punch’. The best fighters of his whole era have tried to land that punch, never mind the guy from a cage. So for me there is only one winner in this.
As part of a Snapchat Q&A Bellew is asked if he’d fight McGregor in boxing at Croke park, in Dublin
If he’s weighing 155 and I’m 200 pounds, you are right I’m gonna fight him. I’ll take his head off.
On Mayweather vs. McGregor.
Two totally different sports. If Floyd was to get into a cage with Conor he’d get torn to pieces. He’d literally pull Floyd’s arm off. But if Conor was to get in a boxing ring, and abide by boxing rules, he’d be absolutely outclassed and embarrassed in two to three rounds…Conor’s got a good stand-up game for a UFC fighter. He has an abysmal boxing game. I don’t even think he’d beat British or European champions. But you put him in a cage, the guy’s an animal. He’d pull the arms and legs off you. He’s really that good.
