CONOR MCGREGOR’S COACH SHARES UPDATE ON JAKE PAUL FIGHT RUMORS

WHAT HAPPENED?

Influencer-turned-undefeated boxer Jake Paul has made his desire to fight UFC superstar Conor McGregor extremely well-known.

However the odds of the two actually facing off could be even less likely than originally thought.

In an interview with The Mirror, McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh touched on the possibility of a fight with Paul and if anything was in the works.

In response to a question about Paul’s manager reportedly being in contact with McGregor’s, Kavanagh was baffled.

He might talk to Audie all the time, but no. I heard something about Jake Paul being managed by an ex-UFC CFO. And I guess it’s interesting to hear some of the negotiation tactics by that big organization being leaked through Jake Paul, so it’s kind of fun to follow that.

That said, a bout between The Notorious One and The Problem Child seems like it hasn’t been considered seriously at all.
