The Saudi event went down well with the boxing fanbase. There were a total of six stoppages out of the eight fights. A significant upset accompanied the event as Joseph Parker dominated Deontay Wilder to win a unanimous decision. The fight card got the attention of sport’s biggest names, as Ronaldo and McGregor attended the fight.
The following footage shows McGregor shaking hands with Ronaldo in a pleasant greeting. The footballer’s demeanor changes when McGregor enters into a conversation with Turki Al-Sheikh, the Chairman of the General Authority for Entertainment, who was responsible for creating the card. McGregor talked up a potential fight with Manny Pacquiao as he could be heard saying the following.
“[I love Manny. Tell him to grow a set of b***s. Say it to him, ‘Be a man or a mouse!’ Is Manny a man or a mouse? That’s it,” McGregor
Ronaldo has since then shut down those claims by sharing a photo of him and McGregor smiling ringside. The image was captioned with the following comments: “Best caption wins!”

I think Ronaldo didn't mind Connor but you see the cameras love to create a problem even if it is not a problem
