Video: World champion Terence Crawford parodies Conor McGregor with ‘McGregor Challenge’

Who wants to do the “McGregor Challenge”? Anyone?

If you watched Conor McGregor’s media day workout last Friday, you probably noticed his warm-up routine, which included this display of “rubber arms” that certainly had at least the boxing community a little perplexed.

For my money, Rickson Gracie did it better.

Anyway, this little sequence from Conor caught the attention of one of the top pound-for-pound boxers in the world today. WBC and WBO junior welterweight (140 lbs) champion Terence Crawford (31-0, 22 KOs) took to social media to introduce the “McGregor Challenge.” Check out the footage for yourself.

Spare a thought for the guy in the red shirt to Crawford’s left, because I’m not sure what the hell he’s doing, but it is hilarious to look at.

Obviously the #McGregorChallenge has caught on, because IBF 154-pound champion Jarrett Hurd (20-0, 14 KOs) has already gotten into the act.

While Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor is set for August 26th on pay-per-view, Terence Crawford’s undisputed junior welterweight title unification bout against Julius Indongo (22-0, 11 KOs) will air live on ESPN on Saturday, August 19th in Crawford’s home state of Nebraska.
