MICHAEL PAGE MMA FIGHTER WHO IS SWITCH­ING TO BOX­ING

IT’S a very ex­pen­sive ex­hi­bi­tion fight and it’s prob­a­bly go­ing to be May­weather’s 50-0 and the eas­i­est fight he’s ever had in his ca­reer. I don’t take any­thing away from Mcgre­gor as an ath­lete and as a fighter. But it’s just not your world. I have to be re­al­is­tic. When I come into this [box­ing] world I have to do the four rounds, six rounds and work my way up be­cause I re­spect the sport. He’s go­ing to the top, and to be fair if I was given that op­por­tu­nity as well I would still take the fight fi­nan­cially speak­ing. Let’s say the money’s taken away, you’d have to train a lot longer than you’re train­ing and now you’re go­ing to be do­ing all these press tours, you need all that ex­tra time to be train­ing. And even then [he’s against] some­one that’s done it his whole life. I gen­uinely be­lieve he has no chance and I’m a fan of Mcgre­gor.
