UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has surely been feeding the hype of a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.

“The Notorious” got some training in with the former IBF and IBO champion boxer Chris van Heerden recently at the Box’N Burn gym in California and showed that he is no slouch in the boxing department.

Olympic boxing medalist Tony Jeffries had a high amount of praise after seeing McGregor get to work in the ring as did van Heerden.

Will Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather be able to work in a boxing match with McGregor under contract with the UFC?
