Conor McGregor challenges PJ Gallagher and Irish football legend Paul McGrath to a ‘boxing match’

Conor McGregor has challenged comedian PJ Gallagher and Irish football legend Paul McGrath to a ‘boxing match’.

he MMA fighter took to social media to challenge the two Irish stars to a “2v1 boxing match benefiting mental health and anti-bullying organisations”.

This follows an online controversy over the weekend in which McGregor took aim at Gallagher and took his mental health issues lightly.

The row seems to have started when Gallagher shared a video of an American TV presenter calling McGregor British, the comedian saying: “Usually something like this pisses me off but they can have this boy.”

In a now-deleted tweet, McGregor called the actor “sad smallpox of a thing” and said he was “howling at the paper about depression.”

“Sit down and smile for a change you sad cunt hahahaha your wife left you everything and your crying in the paper about depression,” McGregor said.

“Hold like a shrimp. Sad bastard. i am ireland Do not forget it.

the previous Naked Camera Stern replied: “Sorry! It took years of hard work and awkward walking to achieve the posture of a shrimp. I’m delicious!”

Gallagher has recently opened up about his mental health struggles and released an update on Sunday to mark the first anniversary of his admission to St Patrick’s Hospital.

The 47-year-old spent time in the psychiatric hospital last year.

“Today is exactly one year since I was admitted to St. Pat’s with a mental illness,” he said in a Twitter post.

“That picture on Radio Nova was the last one I took before going inside. Torn apart inside and scared to death of what was going to happen next.

“Today I’ve never felt better in my life. I’m far from a professional and I don’t have a lot of advice to give anyone. Also, I was very privileged to even get into the hospital.

“I’m just saying no matter how bad you are, there’s a way back. Don’t take no for an answer.”

McGregor’s tweet drew widespread criticism from social media users and celebrities.

Former Irish footballer Paul McGrath spoke out about the controversy and offered a message of support for Gallagher.

He said: “PJ doesn’t pay attention to bullies, you are loved by everyone. Whatever you do, don’t let him overpower your mate, stay sane Top Man.”

McGrath later added, “Conor, you have to find GOD, and if you knock on my door, I’ll put the kettle on for you…my good friend.”

McGregor then fired back at McGrath, referring to him as an “Englishman”.

“If someone comes at me, I will shoot back. What don’t you get I didn’t start any of this. Originally I was bullied. Still, you come online to call me a bully,” he said.

“Leave me alone. Bullies the many of you! I also have a sanity! Irish and proud whether they like it or not.”
