McGregor slammed by KSI for ’embarrassing’ himself at Joshua fight

KSI slammed Conor McGregor for “embarrassing” himself at Anthony Joshua’s fight.

Both stars were ringside in August to watch when Joshua knocked out Robert Helenius.

Following the win, AJ took a lap around the ring and bumped into both McGregor and KSI.

And McGregor was captured hurling abuse at KSI until Joshua intervened in support of his “guy.”

KSI has since lifted the lid on the bizarre incident and claimed the Irishman was trying to talk his way into a mega-fight.

He told Misfits Boxing’s YouTube channel: “It was pretty weird if I’m being honest.

“I think I had heard Conor saying that I can’t box and this and that, it was pretty embarrassing for him because AJ was like ‘nah nah, that’s my guy’ so he looked a little bit stupid there.

“But with Conor, clearly I think he wants a bite at the cherry, he wants a piece of the king and he understands that this right here is where the money is at.

“Everyone is a normal person at the end of the day, same as me just a normal guy and I treat everyone the same.

“Just because he’s Conor McGregor doesn’t mean anything to me.”


McGregor, 35, surprisingly called out KSI, 30, while mocking his fighting ability in the ring immediately after Joshua’s KO victory.

He said: “I know your man KSI is in the crowd and he couldn’t box eggs if he worked in an egg boxing factory.

“So if he wants to get in here I’ll give him a final yoke, bare-knuckle if you want!”
