Conor McGregor’s name is bound to get attention and several people noticed when Notorious showed up on an advertisement for a wheelchair boxing event. It turns out that he’s down, but not right away.
McGregor, who has a 22-5 MMA record, was linked to this wheelchair charity boxing event for the Irish Wheelchair Association on September 11th. He was posted as taking on Al Foran, a McGregor impressionist. This is a fight that McGregor has even joked about having in the past.
McGregor’s spokesperson told ESPN that the Irish superstar’s involvement was not confirmed. Marc Raimondi tweeted out to explain: “Conor McGregor will not be competing in a wheelchair boxing match for charity in September despite recent reports, his spokesperson Karen Kessler told ESPN. He is still healing from the broken leg he suffered at UFC 264.”
Apparently, Notorious is down to take part in the event, but September is too soon. He tweeted out a couple of posts in response to this advertised wheelchair boxing match.
Guys, the September date is too early for me. I am still in recovery. My docs/physical therapy team out here advice me to stay. I reckon late October at earliest. But maybe November/December too. It is hard to say at this time a concrete date. But I’m in! Wait for me please!
Hahaha quality! Give me time guys, I’m in! Just need to focus on this recovery for the next while first before I can commit to a date! Have some cool things planned for event tho!
We’ll have to see if and when they can book Notorious for this wheelchair boxing match. His involvement could prove to be a landmark day in terms of making money for that Irish charity.
