It has taken less than 24 hours for Chris van Heerden former champion boxer to firstly call the character of UFC champion Conor McGregor into question, secondly retract and delete the statement and finally apologises to McGregor for the remarks in the first place.

This whole saga played out on social networking platform Twitter. Van Heerden responded in haste to footage released from our very own website TheMacLife.com He took to Twitter writing the following tweet aimed at Conor McGregor:

Unsurprisingly It did’t take long for a response, however the response came from van Heerden’s own fans.

After a long list of replies similar to the ones shown above, van Heerden took a 360 turn from his original post.

Since that tweet he has replied to many fans, and to the best part has repented from not just his comments made on Twitter last night, but his comments made since the sparring session with McGregor. Agreeing that “he could have handled it better” before moving on apologizing for his misleading remarks.

A fan in the following comment talks about the session in question, giving his view.


Van Heerden in a departure from what he said in previous interviews agreed.
