UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor has already selected his cornermen for his upcoming fight against Floyd “Money” Mayweather.
Owen Roddy, McGregor’s boxing coach, revealed McGregor’s cornermen during a recent episode of The MMA Hour.
According to Roddy, McGregor will be allowed to have four cornermen. At this moment, McGregor will be accompanied by Roddy, his head coach John Kavanagh, and UFC featherweight Artem Lobov. Roddy doesn’t know who the fourth man will be.
“At the moment, it’s going to be me, John, possibly Artem and I think there’s four,” Roddy said. “Obviously he’ll have to get his own cut man and stuff like that. He hasn’t sorted that just yet. But it’ll definitely be myself, John and Artem at the moment.”
Roddy also talked about the possibility of bringing someone new to coach McGregor since none of them have high profile professional boxing experience.
“We’re not bringing anybody in as of yet, but who knows down the line,” Roddy said. “We’re gonna head over the states in the next couple of weeks. But at the moment, we’re in Dublin, we’re all working together. We came up with a game plan that we think can shock the world and we’re gonna stick to that for the time being.”
