Conor McGregor has allegedly agreed to fight Irish boxer Luke Keeler in a boxing match following his assault video footage over an elderly man in a Dublin pub that was leaked some days back. McGregor can be seen striking the man after he ignored to have a shot of his whiskey.
WBO European middleweight champion Keeler reacted to the video footage and slammed Conor through a twitter post.
In an interview with IrishBoxing.com, the boxer revealed that he received a phone call from the Notorious after his twitter post and told that they agreed to fight eachother in a boxing match.
“I don’t want to get into it too much, but I know he wasn’t happy about the call out. He is not happy.
“The fight community in Ireland is small enough and Crumlin isn’t too far from Ballyfermot- and I heard he wasn’t happy with the timing of.
“He rang me and we had a few words. I told him the fight was there to be made and he was all for it. He agreed to fight over the phone.”
Sad to see @TheNotoriousMMA stoop so low, did the same to a friend of mine couple of years ago and still walking around acting the gangster, I’d be happy to put him in his place if he had the balls to step in a ring again ?? https://t.co/SSnAoQmr4K

McGregor has fought only once in a boxing ring against the undefeated Floyd Mayweather and was defeated via TKO in the 10th round while Keeler is 17-2-1 in his professional career.
“I agree it could be just all talk.
“Whether he has the balls or not to get in the ring again, never mind with me, we will have to see.
“He could have been just trying to front up or speaking in anger, but it got to the stage where I felt comfortable enough passing on to my management team.
“Like I said, I don’t want to get into that much yet, but I have handed it over to MTK and they’re talking to Conor.
McGregor competed in an amateur boxing bout in April at his former club Crumlin ABC.
The Notorious took on local fighter Michael McGrane on Good Friday, in what has been the Irishman's most recent competition.
