‘Sly’ Stallone Gives Take on May/Mac Fight
Sylvester Stallone knows a thing or two about underdogs, as the actor became a star by playing fictional boxer Rocky Balboa who rose up from nothing to take on Apollo Creed.
MMA superstar Conor McGregor may not be a real-life Rocky, as he’s already made millions in his UFC career, but his odds of defeating Floyd Mayweather are similarly slim.
Stallone, however, knows better than to write any fighter off completely.
“(McGregor) is long long shot but in fighting strange things happen,” Stallone wrote on his Instagram page. “Floyd is going to be almost impossible to defeat! Good luck and be safe to both warriors.”
