I was going to mention this in the other thread (mma VS boxing) but didn't want to hi-jack it.
Just my opinion on this hyped up fight..I wouldn't pay a penny to watch it live.  Just a fake exhibition fight. A top notch boxer will destroy an MMA fighter if they're just boxing every time.  Conor has an 11 year age advantage which is huge if they were both real boxers. But not enough in this case.  Won't help him though in a real boxing match with a pro of Mayweather's caliber.
Lucky for him this is just a hyped up joke.

Mayweather by TKO in the 2nd or 3rd.

  

For too long have we sat under the thumb of mankind! The time has come to *oppose* that thumb!

I agree it will be quick and easy for Mayweather if the fight is real.

It's too bad they didn't include some aspect of MMA to make it more fair, like allowing kicks.

I would love to see Mayweather get knocked out cold.

But I agree this will be a one-sided fight. McGregor is a tough guy, though, and the gloves will be more padded. I think the referee will stop the fight in the late rounds after McGregor becomes a bloody mess.

I like the hype. It's part of the fun. And while I wouldn't pay to watch the fight, my brother will. We'll probably watch it at his house.

That would have made things more interesting, for sure. Boxers have very quick reflexes though, and a kick would rarely land.

I'd like to see that also, he's a bit arrogant.

McGregor's ony hope is Floyd's 40 years of age. That's very ancient in boxing terms.

Yeah, can't beat that price. I guess my beef is I see this as a staged WWF type event and believe the result is fixed for a huge payday.  I got no problem with the WWF doing it because everyone knows it's just staged entertainment.  Just my 2cents, hopefully I'm wrong.
I'll show my age by remembering the Muhammad Ali vs Antonio Inoki (Japanese professional wrestler)..He wanted no part of a real boxing match, spent the whole fight on his back trying to kick Ali's legs. Ali commented that Inoki spent more time on his back than a whore. It was a very silly event.   Grin

Good point. But at least it would add a new element of intrigue.

Plus, he has a history of domestic abuse. He even served a 90-day prison term.

I saw clips of it on YouTube. It was a travesty. Smiley
