According to the head trainer in the SBG gym, John Kavanagh, Conor McGregor is sparring 4 times more than he used to spar for an MMA match. Moreover, Kavanagh thinks that these isolated boxing exercises will help him a lot in the next MMA battles.
As you all know, the match of the century will be held in a few months, and the real hype is yet to begin. The UFC President Dana White has announced that the world tour for this historic event will begin soon. To be honest, we can’t wait to see Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather on the same table.
Conor McGregor Trains Hard For Floyd Mayweather
So, many people thought that this is the dream fight for Mcgregor and he is doing it just to get some big paycheck. However, there is not a little bit of truth in these statements. According to him and his team, they are fully dedicated and prepared to shock the world and knock out Mayweather. Moreover, Dana White has said that he stopped doubting Conor long time ago. As we mentioned it, in the beginning, his head coach will give us more details about his training regime.
“Without telling you most of the details, I will just say that we are doing a lot more sparring that regular. Much more extra rounds. However, the sparring is the most important part of the preparations. Moreover, you can also do weight lifting, running, and other different techniques, but sparing is sparing. Nothing can replace it.”
“Another great thing about this process is that we have a chance to focus only on one discipline. When you are doing MMA camp, you do not have this chance often because you should work on many different styles. Moreover, many people are saying that this will have negative effects on Connor when he gets back to MMA. However, my personal opinion is completely opposite.“
