McGregor vs Mayweather

Fri Aug 04, 2017 10:58 am

Why not discuss it?

It's a bit of a joke it's happening but 1) will you guys be watching and 2) does anyone think Conor can cause an upset?

McGregor 8-)

I'll watch, just for the sake of watching.

It's incredibly unlikely that Conor wins, but I'd give him a punchers chance of getting a KO.


In other news, apparently Stipe Miocic wants Anthony Joshua. I give that a zero chance of happening.

Yep, no chance of that.

I'm hoping Conor having nothing to lose means he can just go out and attack Mayweather ferociously and fluke the KO. That's the only way I see him winning. A knockout in the early rounds before he tires himself out.

Yeah, there's no way he outlasts Floyd on cardio. The other thing is that Conor's style really is quite unique, in that I assume he won't move like a boxer generally does. This could possibly throw Floyd off guard and help Conor slip in his left.

Realistically though, Floyd dodges him for 5 rounds, tires Conor out and picks him off.

Mayweather is the best defensive boxer, possibly ever. McGregor isn't a boxer. He'll not be able to land anything, get really frustrated and leave himself open, at which point he'll get knocked on his arse. It will be the ultimate rope a dope.

I give a stronger possibility of McGregor getting disqualified than winning.

The only chance he has really is that Mayweather is 40 and hasn't fought for a while. It's still a pretty small window though. If this was Mayweather in his prime, it wouldn't even have happened.

I'm going against the tide here, as I honestly hope Floyd smashes him.

Firstly because it will make the entire boxing sport a joke and Conor would be impossible to shut up, secondly because the Connor, the media, and the public have shown no respect whatsoever to what Floyd has achieved in the sport during the build up

49-0 - the man may not be a perfect role model, but for what he's done in and for the sport, he deserves respect.
