Mick Conlan [2(2)-0] will be part of Team McGregor as ‘The Notorious’ bids to shock the World and defeat none other than all time boxing great Floyd Mayweather.
The Top Rank prospect has revealed the two-weight UFC Champion has asked him to be part of the camp for the fight which insiders believe will happen early Winter time.
McGregor walked Conlan to the ring for his March 17th debut and Conlan looks set to return the favour and more.
The Belfast man claimed he won’t be drafted in as a sparring partner, but will most likely be on hand just to give advice.
“He asked me would I come down and be a part of his camp,” Conlan said in an exclusive interview with John Dennen of Boxing News Online.
“He would like me to be part of his camp for the fight if it happens. He didn’t even say if it happens, he said he would like me to be a part of the camp for the fight.”
“I’m not saying I’m going to spar him or nothing. He wants me to come down and be part of it and experience it all with me. I think it’ll be a fantastic opportunity to go down and do that.”
“I definitely bring something to the table. I’d definitely be able to spot things, if things are wrong, if he’s throwing punches wrong, little things people who aren’t in boxing do naturally.”
“There’s a lot of things I’d be able to give him pointers on, or tips on.”
McGregor, who has previously been a member of Crumlin Boxing Club and trained at the Celtic Warriors Gym, prepared for his rematch with Nick Diaz by sparring Conor Wallace. This link-up came about following an introduction from Conlan.
