MMA superstar Conor McGregor was humble in defeat following his loss to p4p great Floyd Mayweather. McGregor took to the stage, which had been the ring. To speak with the waiting world media, following on from his epic challenge.
Not one to shy away from any challenge. The man from Crumlin Dublin was gracious in defeat, following the loss in his first professional boxing match. And spoke about his admiration for Money Mayweather. How he had relished the test, trying to challenge one of boxing’s p4p greats.
McGregor lost by TKO in the 10th round of the fight. But up until that point had done much better than many had anticipated. As for the boxing media ammassed. Who had all but written him off before the fight had begun. The Dubliner did a good job in proving himself, having not fought in a professional boxing match previous to this.
What next for the Irishman? Perhaps back to the UFC where he has reigned supreme over two weight divisions. Or maybe another challenge in boxing, the world truly is his oyster. Perhaps Conor McGregor may never even fight again, we shall just have to wait and see.
