Irish boxing coach and cutman joins Team McGregor for Mayweather fight

Conor McGregor so far hasn’t brought in a specialised boxing coach to prepare him for his mega-money debut with Floyd Mayweather next month, however a boxing coach has been added to the team.

It was confirmed yesterday that Dublin coach and cutman Tommy McCormack has flown out to Las Vegas to join up with Team McGregor ahead of the Crumlin light middleweight’s pro debut at the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday August 26th.

McCormack will wrap McGregor’s hands and act as cut man for the scheduled twelve rounder with the five-weight boxing champ.

He joins up with head coach John Kavanagh, striking coach Owen Roddy, and training partner Artem Lobov, as well as sparring partners Tiernan Bradley, Louis Adolphe, and Dashon Johnson.

McCormack is lead coach for Kilbarrack flyweight Lynn Harvey [4(3)-1(0)] and seconds for the rest of Team TNT as well as working as a cutman for a huge number of Irish fighters across a range of combat sports, especially in the Mark Dunlop boxing stable.
