Conor McGregor’s Coach Disses Snoop Dogg’s Commentary During Tyson vs. Jones
Conor McGregor’s head coach was not a fan of rapper Snoop Dogg’s commentary during the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight.
Tyson and Jones Jr. collided in an exhibition match this past Saturday night, November 28. The bout was sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission. The two boxing legends fought for all eight rounds. No winner was declared but the WBC awarded both men Frontline Battle Titles.
Snoop Dogg joined Mauro Ranallo, Sugar Ray Leonard, and UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya on commentary for the co-headliner and the main event. While some found the iconic rapper to be humorous, others didn’t appreciate his style in the booth.
McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh took to his Twitter account to make it clear that he wasn’t a fan of Snoop Dogg’s commentary.
really enjoyed the #TysonJonesJr boxing match. can anyone explain to me why snoop is commentating? he knows nothing about boxing and was just adding 'humor' like "they like my uncles fighting at the bbq". no they're 2 former world champions, just be quiet.

The event, which was promoted by Triller, used a mix of boxing and hip-hop. Throughout the evening, musical acts such as French Montana, Wiz Khalifa, and YG were showcased. Snoop Dogg also performed just before returning to commentary duties for the Tyson vs. Jones fight.
