Conor McGregor's Sparring Sessions With Former Boxing Champ 'Got Out Of Control'

Conor McGregor's Sparring Sessions With Former Boxing Champ 'Got Out Of Control'

During the recently completed global media tour to hype the boxing match between unretiring former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and UFC superstar Conor McGregor, it was made clear that they would be wearing 10-ounce gloves for their August 26 junior middleweight fight.

The 40-year-old Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs), who has won world titles in five weight classes and is one of the best fighters in boxing history, is ending a almost two-year retirement to face McGregor, the two-division UFC champion who will be boxing professionally for the first time.

"He handled himself pretty good with Paulie". They was no messing around. "They were both roughing each other up and I had to stop the action like it was a regular fight". "I had to stop the action, say, 'You guys are a little out of control here, you've got to stop this.' You know, they got a little rough". They were holding too much, they were trying to punch each other.

"It got a little out of control to where I had to call, 'Time!"

"(I said) 'Alright guys, you gotta stop this right now. Give me sportsman-like conduct. If you need any evidence about how little it says about his boxing acumen, go watch old sparring sessions between Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes, two of the greatest fighters of all-time, in which they were able to put in a ton of work without acting like insane people.

Unsurprisingly, Cortez also assured these sparring sessions were complete with plenty of trash talk.

He argued that if birthday cakes significantly contributed to spread deadly disease, it would've already been discouraged by now. So if you know the person who is blowing out the candles is unwell, it's an obvious choice to avoid eating the cake.

Cortez said both fighters started off firing verbal shots at each other - leading the session off the rails. "That's part of why I had to stop the action".
