Freddie Roach has revealed he recently had a visit from Floyd Mayweather asking him to consider training Conor McGregor. Air Max 2018 Dame . A crossover bout between the boxing superstar and UFC featherweight champion McGregor has been talked up by both fighters for months, with Mayweather posting a mock-up poster on Instagram on Monday teasing a fight between the pair on pay-per-view. And it seems the 39-year-old has also taken it upon himself to recruit a trainer for McGregor for his potential foray into boxing, with Roach revealing Mayweather visited him at his famed Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles to discuss the possibility. Freddie Roach is the man who masterminded Manny Pacquiaos career Roach told Inside MMA on AXS TV: There are a lot of rumours out there that Im getting calls from Conor, asking me to train him; theyre not true.He has not called me yet but Mayweather did come by my gym last week and he asked me to take that job if its offered to me.He told me the fight is going to happen and were going to make a lot of money.If McGregor were to seek out a boxing trainer and chose to look outside Ireland, Roach stands out as a natural candidate given his past experience of working with a host of UFC fighters, including Andrei Arlovski, Anderson Silva, Tito Ortiz, BJ Penn and Georges St-Pierre.He also possesses intimate knowledge of what its like to face Mayweather, having trained both Oscar De La Hoya and Manny Pacquiao for their bouts against him. Floyd Mayweather could face Conor McGregor in a crossover bout McGregor spent time last week in Los Angeles, after flying out to shoot a spread for ESPN The Magazines Body Issue.While there, he took the opportunity to spar with some professional boxers, but Roach heard less than favourable reports on how he fared.Conor McGregor seems like a tough guy and all that but being a tough guy doesnt really help you in boxing, Roach said.But I do know that hes trained at Wild Card West, which is one of my gyms on the west side, and hes sparring with a couple of my professional fighters over there and I hear hes not doing that well with my professionals.Mayweather is the best boxer in the world and I think he would absolutely not even lose a round against a guy with Conors experience. I mean, he looks like an okay boxer, hes a very good MMA fighter, but the thing is this is boxing and hes kind of a beginner at boxing. It probably would take me almost three years to get him ready for a fight against a guy like Mayweather.

I was surprised how well he could handle it. His boxing is really not bad. Id say after a full training camp where the focus is 100 per cent boxing, he might just shock a lot of boxing fans.Id say he needs work on his footwork. Placing of feet and balance and knowing when to throw the right punch; not just throw anything out there. He has a very good eye for timing and counter-punching.After a good clean-up on skill, he will be in there for a few rounds, but the truth is Floyd will have his way. He is the master of boxing. No one beats Floyd. Chris van Heerden poses with Conor McGregor after sparring.

I said yes to 200, and I wasnt happy with it. I was rushed into the last thing anyway.They werent the happiest about that, but theyre not talking to me about it right now, so were working on it and were going to get it figured out.

Its great for both of them. Boxing followers will start following Conor; MMA followers are going to start following Floyd. Theyre all benefiting, and no one is losing, so theyre going to keep the ball rolling. Also See: McGregor: Floyd needs me Can McGregor box? Floyd confident of McGregor fight Do you like McGregor?

The injury could land Machado on the 15-day disabled list, but its not as serious as it looked on Monday night, when the third baseman crumpled in a heap at the plate after taking an awkward swing in a game against the New York Yankees. Machado had to be helped off the field and had a pair of crutches resting against his locker when he talked to reporters. The Orioles spent much of Tuesday waiting out a steady rain and awaiting the results of Machados MRI. One issue was resolved by late afternoon: Baltimores game against the Yankees was postponed and will be made up as part of a split-admission doubleheader on Sept. 12. The status of Machados knee, however, remained unclear until the team issued this statement on Twitter: INF Manny Machado has been diagnosed with a right knee ligament strain. An update on his condition will be provided tomorrow." Machado isnt Baltimores only injured infielder. Shortstop J.J. Hardy has a sprained lleft thumb. Nike Free 5.0 Sort. . Before the result of Machados MRI become available, Orioles manager Buck Showalter was asked if either player was a candidate for the disabled list. "Im not going to handicap it," he replied. "I dont know yet, but just because someone goes on the DL doesnt mean that hes not going to play again this year, or hes going to have surgery or this and that. Sometimes that does clean it up. Right now weve got rooms for both of them in Chicago and Cleveland." The Orioles have a scheduled off day Thursday before opening a three-game series in Cleveland, followed by three games apiece against the White Sox and Cubs. Showalter said Machado appeared hopeful of avoiding the disabled list for a second time this season. The 2013 All-Star began the season on the DL while recovering from off-season surgery on his left knee. "He was optimistic (Monday) night. I wouldnt let him be anything else," Showalter said. "Unfortunately, hes had a little experience with it, so he knows the difference. Hes joking around and speaking very positively."
