Conor McGregor compares watches with Cristiano Ronaldo at Joshua v Wallin but fans say ex-Man Utd ace ‘wants to escape’
CONOR McGregor and Cristiano Ronaldo could be seen comparing watches as the pair attended “Day of Reckoning” boxing event.
The sporting icons were both ringside for the highly anticipated night of bouts in Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo, who plays his football for Saudi outfit Al-Nassr, was sat ringside when McGregor joined him and began chatting about the boxing.
But it wasn’t long before the Irish fighter was ready to move on and discuss the bling that they both had dripping from their wrists.
McGregor grabbed Ronaldo’s arm and put it next to his to show their watches side by side before joking that they should decide whose was better.
He could be heard saying: “What have you got there? Who’s winning?Who’s winning this one?”
Ronaldo laughed off the awkward moment before then seeming to go on to discuss what expensive timepiece he had on his wrist.
And fans reckoned that the Portuguese football superstar was desperate to get away from the conversation as they reacted to the video on social media.
One wrote: “Ronaldo is thinking ‘God save me’.”
While another added: “Ronaldo is wishing his phone will ring to save him!”

A third joked: “Ronaldo thinking how he can escape.”
The two will have had plenty discuss with both boasting impressive watch collections.
Ronaldo has previously displayed some of his fancy watches in public and the former Manchester United man even has one watch worth a jaw-dropping £1.6m.
While McGregor also has a love for expensive watches with his entire collection tallying up to around £3million.
The pair were eagerly awaiting what is expected to be a huge night of fighting in the Middle East with Anthony Joshua taking on Otto Wallin and Deontay Wilder doing battle with Joseph Parker.
McGregor travelled to the event in style using a private jet with the UFC star living up to his elaborate reputation.
But although he is somewhat of a guest of honour it didn’t stop an awkward gaffe being made inside the arena.
Those in charge of the seating plan had spelt McGregor’s first name wrong by adding an extra “n”.
