Conor McGregor found himself back in a boxing ring.
McGregor took on Michael McGrane last night (April 19) in an exhibition boxing bout. The match was contested inside Crumlin Boxing Club in Dublin, Ireland. SportsJoe.ie provided the details on McGregor’s return to his childhood boxing club.
Fighting To Raise Funds
Every year, the Crumlin Boxing Club holds an event called “The Good Friday Boxing Show.” This is done to help the club raise funds for its facility and athletes.
McGregor’s suspension for his role in the UFC 229-post main event brawl ended earlier this month. The “Notorious” one was in talks with the UFC for a July return, but he didn’t want to be in a co-main event bout unless he had ownership stake. McGregor claimed he was retiring, but he quickly took to social media to say he was ready to handle his business inside the Octagon.
UFC president Dana White plans to meet with McGregor to discuss the former two-division champion’s fighting future. MMA News will provide updates on McGregor’s next fight, should he choose to return, when details become available.
