Conor McGregor Can Fight for Title If He Beats 1 Ranked Boxer, WBC Pres. Says

Conor McGregor has stated one of his goals is to win a boxing world title and the feat may have become more likely despite McGregor having zero professional wins.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman indicated the UFC star could fight for a belt with one big win.

"I would say, he needs to face and defeat a ranked fighter, then he would be eligible to be ranked and to compete for a title," Sulaiman told Jack Figg of The Sun.

McGregor is best known for his MMA career, winning UFC titles at two different weights. His only professional foray into boxing was a loss to Floyd Mayweather.

The 32-year-old has since returned to UFC and is set for a rematch against Dustin Poirier on Jan. 23 that could help determine the future of the lightweight division. However, according to Sulaiman, he wouldn't have to climb a long ladder in boxing to make it to a title fight.

"If he is to start boxing and proves with victories in boxing then he should certainly be given the opportunity to fight for a world title," Sulaiman added.

I thought this said WBO and was gonna laugh and say go for it.
THIS IS THE FUCKING WBC BELT!
Say whatever you want about boxing titles the WBC belt is easily the most highly regarded.
I cannot stress this enough, Conor is not a good boxer.
I was discussing him fighting one of the paul brothers in chat and people were claiming since he started training boxing at a young age he somehow translates to a good boxer.
We saw him fight a boxing fight and he's a middling fighter at best.
Anthony crolla smokes him, Paxman will actually murder McGregor unless its a fix.
This is so fucking stupid im so fucking disappointed, covid or vaccine don't care needs to hurry up and kill us all.

His "boxing" for MMA is outstanding, but he's got too many thing going against him in the boxing ring. Different sport, no need to explain further here lol.

Conor needs to stay in MMA.

I will be surprised if he tries boxing again at all unless it's obviously for huge money. He could get the same opponent treatment as the UFC just to get his foot in the door. I'd still watch. He would have to truly take it seriously and put in the training otherwise I see him losing.

If it was the chat I was in, no one said he was a good boxer.

We just said he is a better boxer than the Paul brothers.
