The President of the CMB, Mauricio Sulaiman, assured that Conor McGregor I’d be one fight away from getting the title of Boxing. The aforementioned spoke with the press in the last hours and stressed that, if he defeated an opponent classified in the Top 15 by that organization, he could undoubtedly have a belt under his belt. Clearly the UFC legend will think so, especially knowing that he did a great fight to Floyd Mayweather a few years ago.
In this way, Sulaiman He started by saying, “I would say you need to face and defeat a ranked fighter. You would then be eligible to be ranked and compete for a title. We have many examples of Muay Thai fighters who turn professional in international boxing and are eligible to fight for the title. We also have amateur superstars like Vasiliy Lomachenko. They enter the Boxing professional and fight for the title, and it’s proven to work. “
“If he’s going to start boxing and it shows with boxing victories, then he certainly should have a chance to fight for a world title. At CMB we consider the amateur career as one of the criteria for qualification. And, for example, Muay Thai, in Thailand, we consider that career also when they enter boxing. Conor He has a mixed martial arts curriculum, “he also acknowledged.
Can you convince him?
In turn, Mauricio dictated: “So if he enters Boxing and wins a fight against a classified fighter, he would be eligible to be classified. This is not a newbie getting into the sport. He has a long history in combat sports. So it’s a different scenario than it used to be in the past. What we saw with Mayweather was, of course, different with the times, the rounds, it is not the same to fight five rounds and then go to 12 rounds.
“But he has skill, he has power, he has the status of a fighter. But to compete and become a world champion in the CMBHe would need to fight in the box and be classified on merit. Then I would be in a position to challenge. I don’t know what weight class I would be in, but I would definitely need to get a decisive victory against a quality opponent to be considered classified, “he closed Mauricio Sulaiman.
