Intense training, a tough diet, and a new look for MacGregor (networking sites)
Former mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor is undergoing a cruel diet in preparation for an upcoming boxing match. He faces Filipino Manny Pacquiao, the former champion of “Noble Art.”
And McGregor lost 3 years ago in a match followed by millions to former world champion in American boxing Floyd Mayor.
Since the first day of the announcement of the “legendary” fight, as described by Pacquiao’s office, MacGregor has not left the club and has stepped up his training to reach full readiness to face one of the greatest boxers in the history of the game.
In addition to the intense training, the Irish fighter – who announced his retirement 3 times in the past – developed a harsh diet consisting of:
- Breakfast: coffee, eggs and smoked salmon, and fruits and vegetables
- Lunch: beef and fish steak or chicken breast and salad
- Dinner: chicken, sushi, tuna, green beans, rice, and sweet potato
In addition to two snacks before and after exercise and a cup of green tea before bed.
The office of Bakiao (41 years) announced last Saturday that he would face MacGregor (33 years). That part of the fight’s income between them will be allocated to help victims of the new Coronavirus in the Philippines.
Jake Jason, the special assistant to Pacquiao, a member of the Philippine Senate, said Pacquiao and MacGregor “are preparing for this latest legendary boxing showdown.”
Jason’s comments came after MacGregor’s tweet on Twitter, in which he said he would “face Pacquiao in his next match in the Middle East.”
Jason commented on McGregor’s tweet, who previously won the featherweight and lightweight mixed martial arts titles, saying, “We do not deny that.”
McGregor announced on Twitter in June that he had retired from the game for the third time, after his first retirement in April 2016, and the second in March 2019.
Jason said that the talks between the two parties are continuing and that a large proportion of Bakiao’s income from the match will go to help Corona victims in the Philippines.
Pacquiao is the only man in boxing history to have won world titles in 8 different weight classes.
