Pete Taylor, the father of Irish boxing champion Katie Taylor, has praised UFC superstar Conor McGregor for his efforts to salvage a dream Croke Park setting for his next fight.
McGregor, who is from Dublin, had been hoping to fight in the iconic stadium in his hometown, but the plans were scuppered by the coronavirus pandemic.
However, the former two-weight UFC champion has been working hard to make the fight happen, and Taylor has praised him for his efforts.
“I think it’s great that Conor is trying to make it happen,” Taylor said. “It would be a great event for the city and for the country. It would be a great boost for the economy and for the sport of boxing.”
Taylor, who is also a coach, said that McGregor’s efforts to make the fight happen are a testament to his commitment to the sport.
“It shows how much he cares about the sport and how much he wants to make it happen,” Taylor said. “It’s great to see someone like him putting in the effort to make it happen.”
Taylor also said that McGregor’s efforts to make the fight happen are a great example for young boxers.
“It’s a great example for young boxers to see someone like Conor putting in the effort to make it happen,” Taylor said. “It shows that if you put in the work, you can make your dreams come true.”
McGregor has yet to announce an opponent for the fight, but Taylor said that whoever it is, it will be a great event.
“Whoever he fights, it’s going to be a great event,” Taylor said. “It’s going to be a great night for the sport of boxing and for the city of Dublin.”
Taylor said that he hopes the fight will be a success and that it will be a great boost for the sport of boxing in Ireland.
“I hope it’s a success and that it will be a great boost for the sport of boxing in Ireland,” Taylor said. “It would be great to see the sport get the recognition it deserves.”
