Conor McGregor has shared some snaps of his son Conor Jr practicing his boxing skills.

The UFC star (33) paid a visit to Crumlin Boxing Club for a training session over the weekend with his sister Aoife (36) and his eldest child Conor Jr (four).

The Notorious stepped into the ring wearing a brown Louis Vuitton leather jacket with large tiger patches worth around €9,950 and a Louis Vuitton messenger bag that costs around €2,568 paired with a red polo neck shirt and black Umbro tracksuit bottoms.

While McGregor was busy doing some boxing drills at the “school of excellence,” Aoife made sure that Conor Jr was entertained by the ring as he watched his dad’s training session.

The 4-year-old, whom McGregor shares with his fiancée Dee Devlin, even got to try on a pair of boxing gloves and gave his dad a run for his money by hitting a punching bag.

McGregor shared a series of photos from the family day out to Instagram and wrote: “Right hook getting sparky at the school of excellence! Jnr watching and practicing!”

And Aoife commented: “Love you.”

The Dubliner’s session at Crumlin Boxing Club comes ahead of his predicted return to the octagon later this year.

He has spent the last few months recovering from a horror leg break that he sustained during his trilogy fight against Dustin Poirier last July.

McGregor confirmed that he will return to the welterweight division, which is currently dominated by Kamaru Usman, when he makes his UFC comeback after competing at lightweight for four of his last five bouts.

“Straight back into training. I'm looking forward to getting back into the octagon - we'll see what happens, the leg's getting better every day, I think 170 is where I'm aiming for, I feel good at this weight,” he told Mirror Boxing.
