Connor McGregor, who is not a boxer, is set to fight the greatest boxer of this generation in two months, will by the looks of it, lose to the greatest boxer of this generation in two months.
Former IBO welterweight champion Chris van Heerden, ranked in the 30’s in the world in his class, sparred with Conor McGregor in the past and posted this video clip of one of those times.

“I sparred with McGregor, off season, coming from a holiday, out of shape and basically playing and having fun, and being me. Not even focused, not even in camp, out of shape,” Van Heerden told TMZ. “I’m reading all these comments saying Floyd will have his hands full landing on Conor because of his footwork, skills and movement. I’m no Mayweather, out of camp, and out of shape — and we landed at will.
“It’s crazy to think that people can actually compare a fighter that’s 0-0 in a boxing ring, to a legend that’s 49-0. If you look at his resume, he fought the best of the best in the world.”
