FORMER world champion Wayne McCullough reached out to Conor McGregor and offered to help him train for his impending fight with Floyd Mayweather, but had no response. Despite the snub, McCullough – who trained under the great Eddie Futch during his brilliant career – senses that the Dubliner will defeat Mayweather in Las Vegas on Saturday night in a result that will spell “disaster” for boxing.
Here in Las Vegas, sat inside the MGM Grand, McCullough – who barely looks a day older than his fighting days – explains all to Boxing News in a fascinating interview.
What do you make of Mayweather-McGregor? Should it have been sanctioned?
Floyd wouldn’t come out of retirement to face Gennady Golovkin at 154lbs – I wonder why? [laughs] Floyd’s been out of the ring for two years and a fighter can get old overnight. He may step in the ring and think, ‘I don’t feel right’ and disaster could strike. I take my hat off to Conor for getting Floyd to come out of retirement.
