Former Light Welterweight Champion Amir Khan recently spoke to GulfNews.com about the upcoming Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor boxing match and said that he won't be watching the show:
“I think it is going be a s*** fight.”
“It’s all just talk at the moment. Mayweather will simply totally outclass him. I mean, if you look at it, it’s not really a fight. McGregor has no boxing background and experience. I can safely predict a horrible knockout.
“Mayweather has not had a KO for the past six years. But with this one against McGregor he is bound to be an easy winner.”
“It would be a great way for Mayweather to end this if he knocks out a MMA superstar like McGregor, who very well knows that this is a free fight for him,” Khan added.
“You know why? Because McGregor can go back and just turn around and say that he’s lost a boxing fight to an actual boxer. He can always say ‘I have never been a boxer. I’ve always been a MMA fighter’.
“McGregor has nothing to lose in that sense, and at the end of it all, he will make a cool $100 million. It’s good business.”
