Carl Froch believes the only thing Conor McGregor might try to succeed at is getting close to Mayweather, when they fight next month.
The former super-middleweight world champion does not even see the UFC mixed martial arts experts having an edge in the match.
Froch says the fight between Mayweather and McGregor is a match to watch, but does not see the professional boxer losing his first match.
“It’s going to be very, very difficult for McGregor to do anything that has any impact on Floyd Mayweather,” Froch told Sky Sports News HQ at Wimbledon.
“But Mayweather has been out of the ring for a couple of years now, so you just never know.
“The big question marks are there but it’s [boxing] an entertainment business – as is mixed martial arts – and both of them are top entertainers, so people will be tuning into watch it. I know I will. I am looking forward to it.
“Mayweather is too much of a professional to switch off.
“He’ll be using his sharp jab and his movement and I think McGregor will really struggle – just to get near him, never mind land a punch.”
