Ever since the boxing heavyweight champion announced his plans to enter MMA, talks and rumors started surfacing about his endeavors. A recent one is that his offer from MMA Champion Conor McGregor to get trained. Initially, there’s no confirmation from the boxer about the rumor, however, he confirmed this during a radio interview.
“I think Conor is an absolutely fantastic fighting man,” Fury said to RTE Radio 1. “He has offered to train me if I ever want to go into MMA. What better trainer could I have than the Notorious Conor McGregor?
“I’m looking forward to coming to train with Conor. We’re going to get it all planned in and I should be over in Dublin quite soon. I’ll definitely be coming over for a training session, that is for sure. I have been MMA training in the last week with Darren Till in Liverpool. I really enjoy the new challenge.”
“I don’t know where or when [I’ll make my MMA debut] because after I finish my boxing career I fancy my hand at MMA as well.”
