If Floyd Mayweather loses to Conor McGregor on Saturday night in Las Vegas, the world would go crazy! It probably would go down as the biggest upset in the history of sports.
One man who gives McGregor a shot is Nate Diaz. Diaz fought McGregor two times in the Octagon. Diaz won the first fight, and McGregor bested Diaz in the rematch.
Diaz told Against All Odds with Cousin Sal the following:
“I’ve sparred with the top pros in the fight game, the best fighters in the world, and done better than a lot of them. I fought Conor for 25 minutes. I believe he’s definitely going to have a chance,” Diaz said.
“Fighting and beating the best boxer pound for pound in the world right now? That’s another story, but a fight’s a fight, and we’re going to have to watch and see what happens.”
Diaz think it’s ridiculous that many pro boxers are not giving McGregor a chance:
“The boxers, every f____ pro boxer is saying something and all this criticism, and I think it’s a better option is to keep your opinion out of it,” Diaz said.
“What happens when Conor wins? Let’s say he wins, and all this sh*t these boxers talk oh you thought you knew but you don’t know sh*t because you say stuff like he doesn’t stand a chance. They should know, being fighters, in a fight, everyone stands a chance, and if they’re saying that there’s no chance, that’s a problem.”
I’m not a boxer, but I don’t give McGregor much of a chance. It’s impossible to think a guy could beat an all-time great in his first fight. I maybe wrong, but I doubt it!
