    Even the girl seems a bit surprised.

    Id imagine its just media, promotion and these things, but he looked genuinely interested.

    Is there more to It? Any backstory?

    Never heard him mention anything before and he is there offering full support and shit...

    Another Irish fighter who has done very well for herself.

    Why wouldn't he support her?

    Thanks. It seemed a bit out of the blue at First, but i guess hes been following her career for some time then.

    I think she just wanted the addled coke questions to stop. Maybe she just wanted to have 5 minutes after her fight.

    Because she is Irish and he thinks she is a good fighter?

    Conor should talk to her trainer who he met in that video to maybe help out with his strength and conditioning, Ross Enamait. Been following him for years, they guy is an absolute beast:

    Yeah guys, i know... she is irish, champ, etc... But im sure there are many other irish athletes he could be supporting and he isnt really out there going to their events and making video/media of his appearences.

    This seemed a bit more than the usual "words of encouragement" kind of thing.

    But ok... i guess im looking too much into it then.

    Katie Taylor's promoter is Eddie Hearn so he probably paid for Conor to be there, the fight was in Boston and not Dublin so I guess Conor still being in the US and trying to sell his whiskey had something to do with it too.

    They have met before too

    And as people have said Irish fighter/sportsman supporting another Irish fighter/sportswoman isn't exactly unusual.

    He supports her because she's Irish and apparently she's well thought of there
