However, Gavin argued that it’s very difficult for McGregor to transplant an MMA fighting to boxing. Gavin analyzed that McGregor’s young age would give McGregor an advantage but he assessed that McGregor also have no experience in the professional boxing fights. He also doesn’t believe that McGregor can land solid punches on Mayweather. His analysis was based on Mayweather unbeaten score 49-0.
