McGregor returns to old boxing club for exhibition showdown
CONOR McGregor was back in the boxing ring again, but it wasn’t for a big money Las Vegas showdown.
Instead he faced off with Irish amateur Michael McGrane at the Crumlin Boxing Club’s annual Good Friday show in Dublin.
The former UFC world champion and McGrane, who works as an electrician, fought to a draw in a four round exhibition fight in front of a packed crowd.
Afterwards Notorious, 30, posed for photos with fighters, fans and coaches while brandishing a bottle of his Proper 12 whiskey. McGregor started boxing in the club aged 12 and won the Dublin Novice Championships at 16.
He then forged a career in mixed martial arts and he didn’t return to the ring for a bout until 2017.
The Dubliner hasn’t fought in a boxing match since taking on Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas in a bout which earned him around €100million.
He is currently in talks for a UFC return despite announcing his retirement with a social media post last month.
