Mayweather-McGregor: ‘Rocky Balboa’ Sly Stallone Has Chosen His Side

Right now everybody is talking about Floyd Mayweather fighting UFC superstar Conor McGregor. And people are also starting to voice their official opinions about who is going to win.

Hollywood superstar Sylvester Stallone is apparently rooting for the Irishman according to

“He’s the real life Rocky. I always have the underdog,” commented Stallone.

However, it should be mentioned that Stallone actually owns a small stake of the UFC so it is in his best interests if McGregor wins.

Interestingly enough though, about a year ago Stallone had a different tone to his voice.

“In boxing, you gotta go with the boxer,” commented ‘Sly’.

And by the way, Stallone is definitely not the only one who is picking Conor over Mayweather.

The fight was made official Wednesday when both Mayweather and McGregor posted official announcements on their social media accounts.
