You know what’s going to be a spectacular media circus that will dominate the news for days? The first press conference where Floyd Mayweater and Conor McGregor are together with microphones in front of their faces. Because when McGregor and Nate Diaz had their’s… holy moly was that something.
But in the meantime, we have to settle for little nuggets of news, like what people in peripheral orbits around the main players think. Today, it’s McGregor’s sparring partner.

“Conor is a very good boxer,” [Tiernan] Bradley said. He doesn’t move like any other boxer. He’s powerful, fast and light on his feet … He’s very good at getting in and out and connecting. He’s so quick on his feet it’s very hard to judge the distance with him.
“He’s so fast and unpredictable — that’s a very dangerous combination. I don’t think Mayweather has ever boxed anyone like that.”
He added: “It’s very different to any style I’ve seen over the years. He has this strange style and he can keep going at a serious pace for 12 rounds. He’s on his toes and he’s constantly keeping you guessing.
“My biggest takeaway from the rounds was the pace that we fought at and that he seemed unbreakable. I found it very hard to figure him out.”
