Tony Ferguson Believes He Knows The Motive Behind Conor McGregor's Bellator Antics

  • Conor Mc Gregor Marc Goddard

The 44-year-old legend hasn't fought in a professional match in almost a decade.

"I've been secretly training", De La Hoya declared on Golden Boy Radio. I'm faster than ever and stronger than ever.

De La Hoya claimed: "I know I could take out Conor McGregor in two rounds". I think that's very important to understand that fighter safety is the most important thing in the world because without fighter safety, the sport would not proceed to the next level like it always had.

McGregor was all set to face lightweight interim champion Tony Ferguson on the traditional end of year card, but Mazzulli has said it will no longer happen after a UFC official contracted him "within two hours of the Bellator event" to tell him it was off. But, McGregor lost to Mayweather, so, would the UFC, or the Irish star's team even want to run the risk of having him lose to the older De La Hoya? That's all I'm going to say.

De La Hoya, on the other hand, has been involved in some of the most lucrative fights of the century.

Mark Goddard attempted to stop Mayweather from celebrating inside the ring leading to ugly scenes where the Irishman pushed the referee up against the cage before being escorted out of the arena.

There's no time frame for a return right now, or whether the UFC would be interested in another co-promotion with De La Hoya's "Golden Boy Promotions".

But De La Hoya is wary of the threat posed by the Crumlin-born mixed martial arts fighter, adding: "Let's get it straight - in the cage, he would freaking destroy me".

"I've been working out for the last five months".

This past August UFC superstar Conor McGregor stepped into a boxing ring to battle against undefeated and future Hall of Famer Floyd Mayweather.

With all the controversy, candour and steely-eyed self-belief we've come to expect, Conor McGregor: Notorious offers an unprecedented glimpse into the public and private life of a man considered a hero by fans across the globe.

De La Hoya, who retired in 2009 after a one-sided defeat Manny Pacquiao, won 10 world titles in six different weight classes and is regarded as one of the finest boxers of his generation.
