Alternatively, Lawal will watch it via social media:
“Me, I’ll wait to watch it on Facebook,” Lawal recently told MMAjunkie Radio. “I’m not going to pay $100 to watch a guy make his pro debut versus a guy that’s 49-0, looking for his 50th win – a five-time world champion, a guy that’s a bronze medalist in the Olympics that should have won gold, a guy that’s been boxing his whole life, comes from a family of boxers. I’m not going to watch that mismatch.”
Lawal is finding it hard to envisage much of a chance for McGregor, who will be making his boxing debut against one of the greatest tacticians and minds boxing has ever seen:
“Eight-ounce gloves ain’t going to help Conor,” Lawal said. “It’s going to help Floyd unless Floyd hurts his hands in the first round, but I don’t see it happening, man. I’m glad Conor believes in himself. Anytime a man believes in himself, it’s hard to discount that person. He believes in himself, but so does Floyd, and Floyd’s been training real hard. [Mayweather] is going to go out there, walk Conor down behind his high guard, and just beat him up. It’s a mismatch. Just like when James Toney fought Randy Couture: mismatch. It is what it is.”
In an interview five months ago, “King Mo” claimed that Mayweather would ’embarrass’ McGregor. Check it out at the top of this page!
