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 Jr., 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.
