Conor McGregor’s Former Sparring Partner Doesn’t Like His Chances Against Floyd Mayweather

Chris van Heerden is no Floyd Mayweather, but he is a guy with a 25-2-1 record who has won a few belts in his career. So there would be no shame in getting worked by van Heerden as McGregor apparently did. The South African boxer sparred with McGregor 13 months ago.

Chris van Heerden says that not only will Mayweather win the fight, he will dominate McGregor. Why does he say that? Because he has been in the ring with McGregor himself, back in 2016, and he did exactly that.

Reports TMZ Sports

The 29-year-old professional fighter stepped in the ring with Conor in May 2016 to spar for a few rounds — and dominated the UFC star.

And to rub salt in the wound, van Heerden says he was out of shape and had just gotten back from vacation when around the time of the sesh … and still “landed at will” on McGregor.

We asked straight-up if Conor has the knockout power to beat Floyd, van Heerden’s response — “No.”

Not that it really matters in the long run to McGregor. He’ll come out the fight both filthy rich as well as still king of the hill in the UFC so really, even if he loses, he still wins.
