McGuigan on who is his favorite fighter to watch right now:
"I'm a big fan of, massive fan of GGG. Love him. He's just riveting...because he comes and gets you. He doesn't back off, he comes and gets ya and I mean, something about me, and the Mexicans love him too because he doesn't muck around. He just comes and gets you and I love and admire boxing skills, don't get me wrong, and the super lightweight champion, what's his name...[Terence] Crawford - absolutely brilliant. Love his skill, love him as a fighter, love [Sergey] Kovalev, love Andre Ward too but more excited about Kovalev because he's a seek and destroy merchant.
"Lomachenko - unbelievable. Unbelievable to watch. And I admire people like [Guillermo] Rigondeaux but he bores the pants off me because he just does the same thing over and over again. You know you can only watch skill for a certain amount of time and then it just bores you, and you want to see action. I love action fighters. And Duran, Pepino Cuevas, Zarate, Zamora, Alexis Arguello, Aaron Pryor - those are the fighters that I loved to watch. And of course Tommy Hearns, Leonard...I could never have been as good as them but I wanted to be like them and they inspired me. And those are the guys that make kids want to dedicate their lives to boxing - those are the guys.
"You look at Erik Morales, you look at Barrera, and kids just go 'if I can be like that I'll be willing to give up the rest of my life - if I can be like that'. Often very few of them can do it, but that is what inspiration is all about...that's what makes you change your life."
