Clearly, Conor McGregor is a fan of Ryan Garcia. Perhaps he can get back in the win column in his eventual rematch against Gervonta Davis.
However, he’ll have to show some improvement. Apparently, the judges were favoring Davis throughout most of the fight before the TKO, per Boxing Scene.
Additionally, it’s cool to see McGregor show so much support to a young boxer. The UFC star obviously loves combat sports. So why not show love to one of the top rising stars in the sport?
On top of that, fight fans couldn’t help but share some of their reactions to Conor McGregor’s inspiring words to Ryan Garcia.
If mac has faith in him he will do big things in future that's for sure
