In a talk with @espn
, Dana protects Conor from those critics who suggest that he’s never defended the belt. He also went on to call those critics “Conor Haters”.
. . .
I see what he’s trying to say, but I think it’s more about people being impatient and having certain expectations from champions. Fans want champions to defend and fight top contenders, one after another, the way that @jonnybones
. . .
With Conor it seems like a song and dance...”I want partnership, I want to be a boxer, I want Khabib in Russia, I want more money, I want WWE”....and I think this is what the fans are tired of and why they say he’s never defended the belt. Realistically he’s had some down time where he could’ve been defending, and the reality is that he’s never defended once in any weight class 🤔👊🏼
