Elite boxing trainer Eddy Reynoso is offering a helping hand to Conor McGregor.
McGregor is the biggest star in MMA. He holds records for the UFC’s biggest pay-per-view draw and largest gate. He is also the first fighter to hold UFC gold in two weight classes simultaneously, giving birth to the “Champ-Champ” label.
Reynoso trains top championship fighters such as Canelo Alvarez, Oscar Valdez, and Ryan Garcia. Could Conor McGregor be added to that list? Reynoso wouldn’t rule it out and even welcomes it.
Speaking to Little Giant Boxing, Reynoso said he’s willing to assist the “Notorious” one in fine-tuning his boxing abilities (h/t BoxingScene.com).
“I think they should do a trilogy fight. It’s 1-1 so the third fight should be good. Here we can support him. We can help to better his boxing and defense. Honestly, when he fought Mayweather he surprised me. He has a good counter. He has good footwork, waist movement, and agility. Therefore, I think he would do good in boxing. Give it your best, keep working hard, don’t quit. You have a lot to give, and get the third fight with Dustin Poirier.
“There’s bad nights sometimes. Conor has a lot to give, I don’t know what happened, but his career is untouchable. He’s a tremendous athlete that’s going to be in the history books. Anytime, this is your home Conor whenever you wanna come practice and learn. We welcome you with open arms.”
McGregor last competed back in January. He took on Dustin Poirier in a rematch from their September 2014 encounter. While McGregor earned the first-round TKO finish in their first meeting, the rematch played out far differently. Poirier scored the second-round TKO victory this time.
