John Kavanagh claims that McGregor is getting in more rounds than ever before
His coach had strong words coming up to this fight.
It seems Conor is going all in to defeat the undefeated Floyd Mayweather on August 28th, with his coach claiming ” he is sparring 4 times a day”. Whilst conducting an interview with the themaclife.com John Kavanagh had this to say about McGregor’s camp “Without going into too much detail – just to throw a number at you – we’re doing four times the amount of sparring for this camp than we would do for a regular MMA camp, That’s a huge amount of extra rounds. Whatever other parts you get ready for a fight whether it’s boxing or MMA, without a doubt, the most important part of that is sparring. That’s the sport. So you can be doing movement drills and weight lifting and running and all of these different things that go with it but number one should be sparring, as long as it’s sensible.”
John also commented on people giving McGregor no chance in this bout by saying “Whatever about the other arts in MMA, Conor came from boxing and boxing was always in his heart. He was always showing me different boxing fights over the years, so now that he really gets to immerse himself in it and drag us all deep into that rabbit hole with him it is fascinating.”
