Ian Garry explains why…

Irish UFC fighter Ian Garry pointed out that boxing is more respected and therefore Katie Taylor is treated better than Conor McGregor in Ireland


Irish UFC fighter Ian Garry pointed out that boxing is more respected and therefore Katie Taylor is treated better than Conor McGregor in Ireland.

This because once ‘Notorious’ he joked when he was crowned in the UFC and did not have a great reception in his country. Opposite case, taylor who had a great reception when he beat Dolphin Person to become the undisputed lightweight champion in 2019.

“I think boxing is more respected than MMA,” Garry told talkSPORT. “I think MMA around the world is seen as very violent. It has been given a bad reputation for no reason.”

In the same way, he indicated that he does not believe that it is a case between taylor and mcgregor in particular, but of sports itself.

“I think it’s more of a case of boxing versus MMA than Katy (Taylor) and Conor (mcgregor),” said the Irishman. Conor McGregor he is the most successful (fighter) we have seen in this sport,” he said. “He has done more for this sport than anyone else and he has the respect he deserves for his achievements. I believe that Katy he has too. I think it’s literally the fact that it’s boxing versus MMA.”

Ian Garry Says Boxing Is More Respected And Katie Taylor Gets Better Treatment Than McGregor; she could fight Cris Cyborg

the promoter Eddie Hearn commented that they are analyzing the next rivals of Katie Taylor which would be before Chris Cyborg either holly holmboth MMA fighters.

“There are two fights that I find really interesting: one is holly holm and another is Chris Cyborg”, said on The MMA Hour. “holly holm she is a very good boxer. Cyborg he can box too, he’s got great power, he doesn’t have Holly’s boxing resume, but they’re great crossover fights. I believe that holly holm he has one fight left with the UFC, which would make him difficult to do. Cyborg I think he has a deal with Bellator, but he doesn’t go into boxing.”
