‘Mano de Piedra’ Durán: “If Mayweather wins … McGregor is a clown”
The considered best lightweight of all time, Roberto ‘Mano de Piedra’ Durán assured Efe that the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Connor McGregor will be a “show”, and that “if Mayweather wins, McGregor is a clown.”
If Mayweather beats the guy (McGregor) it’s a show. Mayweather has nothing to do against a fighter of that stature. If McGregor is serious, he will bust both of Mayweather’s arms and legs, “he added.
“If Mayweather wins … McGregor is a clown,” said Duran, he was champion in the light, welterweight, super welterweight and medium divisions between 1972 and 1989.
The former champion who amassed a record 103 wins, 70 of them before the limit, 32 decisions, 1 retirement (the controversial withdrawal “No Más” and loss of the welterweight title on November 20, 1980 to Sugar Ray Leonard) and 16 losses ( 4 knockouts), also valued the controversial fight
«It won’t hurt the boxingOtherwise it will hurt mixed martial arts, because you’re talking about a good world champion, if that guy loses against Mayweather it must be for something, “he said.
“El Cholo”, as Durán is also known in his native Panama, is not far from reality, because McGregor, at the moment, is simultaneously featherweight and lightweight champion, while Mayweather, who is returning from retirement, fought for the last time against Andre Berto, on September 12, 2015.
The controversial fight will take place at the T-Mobile Arena, and for both fighters a purse of 400 million dollars is estimated, that is, 300 million for Mayweather and 100 million for McGregor. EFE
