Trudeau picks Mayweather to beat McGregor


BRANTFORD, Ont. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau weighed in on the highly anticipated boxing match between UFC champion Conor McGregor and undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, picking Mayweather as the winner.

“We all like McGregor, but I think it’s not his sport,” said Trudeau while visiting a Brantford, Ont., ice cream shop Friday. “Mayweather’s going to teach him what boxing’s all about.”

Trudeau is no stranger to boxing. In 2012, Trudeau fought and won in a charity boxing match against Senator Patrick Brazeau. This week, he also attended a charity boxing match in Montreal on Wednesday.

But Trudeau doesn’t think it’s going to be a spectacular fight to watch.

“It’s not going to be a great fight,” said Trudeau with a shrug, as he trailed off.


  1. Turdeau and Wynniehorse have better things to do than comment about boxing, like squandering billions of our tax dollars on things that we do not approve of, many, many things.

    • Prime Minister Harper researched and wrote a 300+ page hockey book that was published in 2013 which was in the middle of his term as Prime Minister. But that’s obviously not as much a distraction from his duties at PM as a 15 second answer to a press question. Who’s one to let facts get in the way of partisan (and unimaginative) namecalling anyway?
