John Kavanagh joined “Bill and Boz” on Fox Sports News 500 and revealed while “the people in the suits” work on the contracts, Conor’s in the gym training for a boxing match.
“In my mind, it’s on. That’s the mentality we’re in,” Kavanagh says. “As far as I’m concerned, I really believe it’s gonna happen this year.”
Kavanagh says training for boxing is MUCH different than training for MMA — “It’s simpler, less skills involved” — but Conor’s up for the challenge.
And get this … Kavanagh says the two sides are close on agreeing to a fight weight … 147 pounds — way less than Conor weighed when he fought Nate Diaz.
