One of the greatest and most high-profile scraps in women’s boxing history concluded last night (Sat., Apr. 30, 2022) live on DAZN from inside Madison Square Garden in New York City. Undefeated Irish star Katie Taylor turned away Amanda Serrano in a highly competitive scrap to retain her WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO and The Ring female Lightweight titles (watch highlights).
Damn-near everyone watching was impressed, and that included Conor McGregor. “Notorious” is a long-time Taylor supporter and fan, and he wished her well before the match up. Afterward, McGregor was complimentary toward both women and the match itself, which he described as, “absolutely incredible boxing!”
Of course, McGregor didn’t leave it at that. He added on one extra tweet, a subtweet in the direction of “jackass” Jake Paul, who’s likely still smarting from losing a seven-figure bet to Eddie Hearn on the outcome of the match. Although, being mentioned by McGregor — who Paul has long targeted as a boxing opponent — might actually have “The Problem Child” feeling a bit better!
Who the fuck is this jackass in the pink Jimmy saville glasses ?— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 1, 2022
Paul would later respond to McGregor’s post with the below message:
