Mayweather - McGregor

Recommended Posts

Thought it needed a thread, if only to avoid clogging up the boxing thread.

 

This kid was cashing welfare cheques 4 years ago.

 

 

Worth watching just for the line at the end.

I just heard about this yesterday.

 

Can I ask what is potentially a stupid question, are they having a boxing match or a full on UFC fight?

It's boxing mate. Had it been MMA Mayweather would be lucky to escape the first minute never mind the first round.

Its a fucking freak show that has more place under a big top than a boxing ring.

Hope its like the end of Rocky 2 only neither gets up.

 

$100 for this shit show on PPV  in the States

Fuck that

 

The fight should not even have been granted a license as its amatuer with 0 amatuer fights against a multiple world champion. Seeing as Nevada decided Tim Sylvia(2x UFC Heavyweight champ) could not fight ray Mercer in a ring because he had no previous boxing experience just show how corrupt the state is

Nice one, cheers.

 

I'm hoping it's going to be a bit like this...

It's a boxing match. Or a 'media event', depending on how you look at it.

 

If it were an MMA contest, Floyd would last 30 seconds, at most.

 

I don't think many people give McGregor more than a punchers chance, rightly so, but he is one entertaining motherfucker at this trash talk lark.

 

I'm reticent to write him off completely, just on the basis that he's a once in a lifetime kind of personality. How amazing would it be if he did somehow manage to win by KO...

Boxing is all about the freak shows.

 

It's not like McGregor is a complete novice, world class athlete in his own right (in a different sport, granted) and he has the ability to completely fuck Mayweather up if he so chooses. Plus, the fans want to see it more than any other fight in the history of the world.

 

I'm glad it's going ahead.

It's the most one sided boxing match in history. Mcgregor shouldnt be in the ring with any pro, let alone one of the best about.

 

Easy money to be made for the smart punters. Judging by Mayweathers odds getting better, there's a lot of stupid fools parting with their cash.

It's going to be fun if you embrace it. If you just ignore it then more fool you. Both conferences I've seen have been funny. McGregor (and fair play to him) is milking it for all he can but he is already right under Mayweathers skin. It was obvious in that Toronto one earlier. I fancied Floyd to do it within a round only because I've boxed and know the difference between someone who hasn't trained as a boxer and who has.... But.... McGregor wont go down lightly and Mayweather isn't a hard puncher. Its getting more intriguing as the days go on.

It's a lose-lose for boxing. Floyd is expected to win so it doesn't really enhance boxing's viewership. However, even though it is extremely remote, a Floyd loss could do a lot of damage to the sport.

The stuff he's dropping about maybe just deciding to strangle him or bouncing an elbow off his nose is all to try and get that uncharacteristic split seconds hesitation or anxiety isn't it.

 

Won't do it of course, but can't be sued for talking about it ahead of the fight and if he can cause any doubt in Mayweather about his intentions then all the better. Sure it won't work but he's having a go at planting the seed.

Pay day for both fighters nothing more. McGregor is a prick but good at what he does, and what he says.

If it goes more than 3 rounds I'll be amazed and would be as good as a win for McGregor as Mayweather is one of the best ever.

He really is, and he is only gonna get more under it. i'm climbing into the hype. Boxing is shit at the minute. Im not arsed about the actual fight. I just love the spectacle. I was the same with the WWF back when i was a kid. 'figure four leg lock' fuck that I want to see Stone Cold smashing some cunt round the head with a chair backstage.

The best fight in boxing os coming up. Hence Floyd wanting the attention and putting this up the month before to get the casual fans money so they dont spend it on Canelo vs GGG

The two of them are probably good mates behind the scenes and laugh at all the casuals falling for this bollocks. They're trying to surpass the May vs Pac fights 4.4 million PPV buys. That's why the two of them are up there throwing all these pre rehearsed insults out at each other because their purse is tied to a percentage of the PPV buys.

 

If the two of them were born in the Wild West Mayweather would be on a carriage selling some snake oil salve to rub on your head to grow your hair back and Conor would appear from the crowd to vouch for the effectiveness of this supposed cure. That's the kind of shit going down here. An epic swindle.

If they were born in the Wild West I would suggest that Mayweather might have some other more pressing issues.

It will probably end up like the Ali v Inoki fight in 76 , I think Ali just treated it as a joke plus he earned big money from it (he got $7 million )

 

It was also apparently boring as fuck as the Inoki bloke just sat on his arse kicking for 15 rounds

Prizefighters in 'selling the fight' shocker.
