Close Calls

'Every time he misses Mayweather he's going to lose energy. I see a stoppage in six or seven rounds'

Eric Donovan, Jason Quigley, ‘Irish’ Joe Duffy and John Kavanagh drop knowledge bombs ahead of the big one in Vegas.

WE’RE NOW LESS than 36 hours away from the biggest combat sports event of our lifetime – like it or lump it.

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, Conor McGregor will attempt to pull off the greatest single-event upset in sporting history, when he finally trades leather with the four-time lineal boxing champion Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.

The time for talking is over… Almost, anyway.

Joining Gavan Casey to preview ‘The Money Fight’ on this week’s Close Calls, five-time Irish Senior Elite champion and current 4-0(3KOs) professional boxer Eric ‘Lilywhite Lightning’ Donovan, Donegal’s Stateside sensation Jason ‘El Animal’ Quigley, UFC lightweight and former pro boxer Joe Duffy, as well as McGregor’s coach, John Kavanagh, who addressed rumours that his Notorious charge might leave unarmed combate in his rear-view and ride off into retirement after his Vegas payday.

Old Irish team-mates Donovan and Quigley are completely at odds as to how the fight will transpire, while Duffy sheds some light on the transition from the octagon to the ring, and as to whether McGregor can carry his power from MMA to boxing.

The42′s Close Calls, supported by eir Sport, is broadcast live on Facebook every Friday afternoon. 

We’re ready to show the world of boxing that there’s more than one way to skin a cat
