Former heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield thinks the long arm advantage and straight punches could help McGregor beat Pacquiao.
“Conor McGregor has a long arm span. That is undeniable advantage,” Evander Holyfield told the newspaper. Sun. “McGregor can keep Manny Pacquiao on the side, then finish with straight punches. Still, it’s very difficult because the opponent is a champion who has devoted almost his entire life to boxing.”
McGregor hinted at the plan of the tower with Pacquiao from September 2020. Filipino boxer manager Sean Gibbons acknowledged this possibility and planned to hold the match in early 2021. However, due to Covid-19, the match was postponed, possibly September 2021.
With Khabib Nurmagomedov, McGregor is the most famous MMA fighter in the world. However, when put on the scale with the boxing world, the prize money for MMA matches is always low. Therefore, McGregor always wants to step into boxing, and once made $ 100 million when playing Floyd Mayweather in 2017.
“When the game is not played yet, every fighter has a chance. Although the strength is the swing, wrestling, and squeeze, McGregor still has certain boxing skills,” Holyfield continued. “Pacquiao is a great puncher. The only thing that can beat him is youth. McGregor has that, plus the morale of a warrior, but he has no reflexes only using his hands when on the tower”.
McGregor is preparing for the match against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 event, taking place on 23/1 in the UAE. And Pacquiao has no specific rival.
