because mayweather has been fighting seasoned top level boxers who actually know how to defend themselves in a ring.

McGregor could get hit with 50 head shots in the first 2 rounds alone and the ref will stop it

It will happen IMO and mayweather will get a few hundred million for less than two rounds of boxing.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
After he gets ko'd by McGregor you mean? Because he certainly isn't knocking him out.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Mayweather KO him..hmm dunno I wouldnt totally rule it out.... TKO tho is a different matter completely. It will so one sided its unreal...A lot depends on if Mayweather wants to stop him or keep the fight ticking over to last the 12
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It certainly wouldn't happen in the first two rounds though. Can't remember the last time Mayweather got a KO or TKO over anyone it's been so long.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
true (think his last KO was Ortiz?)...but when was the last time floyd fought someone who wasnt a boxer ?! I watched an interview with Freddie Roach and he said even if he spent the nxt 3 years training Conor he still wouldnt win a round against Floyd

I wouldnt totally rule out him going easy on Conor in order to make the fight look a little more respectable...or he could also just choose to humiliate him !

No disrespect to Freddie Roach but I stopped listening to anything he has to say a while back.

Even if he's right Conor can still win the fight without winning a single round. That goes for any fight in boxing.

again nothing your saying is technically not true but its like saying I could win against him.

No offence delboy but you ain't Conor McGregor

Another factor to consider is that Mayweather's about to turn 40 this month and hasn't fought since Berto a year and a half ago.

By comparison Conor is in his prime and has been very active in the octagon. Conor started off in boxing as well so it's not exactly a foreign art to him.

Am I not ..... damn .... lol (although i have studied karate for about 12 years and taught as well as boxed)
Floyd will make him look like a complete novice tho

total banter if McGregor is losing badly and just goes for a takedown in the ring

posted on 2/2/17

No chance Floyd finishes him in a few rounds. Floyd is more likely to toy with him for 12 and look to make it a spectacle. He may even do what he did against Maidana and just lay on the ropes although at 40, I can't see him taking damage intentionally.

Father time also needs to be included in the equation, we've seen fighters age over night, it happens to them all, maybe Floyd comes in and looks totally shot and Conor manages to land a big shot?

mayweather could box till he is 90 and still never get hit by a big shot

posted on 2/2/17

Floyd has visibly slowed. He has been getting hit more and more since the Miguel Cotto fight. All it takes is one punch and McGregor is a bigger guy.

Just read the link below.

My favourite comment was from Steve Bunce:

"McGregor will struggle to win an Irish title as a boxer, he is a novice, his feet are dreadful, he turns his head when he punches and lifts his chin up.

Mayweather would win without taking a punch. It would be a massacre".

Mayweather has taken breaks before, and come back against very good fighters and they couldn't lay a glove on him... Connor would get slapped to pieces.

Connor would get CM Punked...

------------------------------------------------------------

Exactly. All it takes is one punch to change the course of any fight and McGregor certainly knows how to strike.

An exert from that Independent article:

"But what if one of those left-hand counters connected? What if Mayweather, who will not have boxed for the best part of two years by the time he could conceivably meet McGregor, showed a split-second of rustiness and McGregor landed a clean punch? Would 'Money' be able to wear it?"

The last time Floyd took a two year break was in 2007 and he was 29 at the time which is pretty much is prime. If he comes back this year against McGregor he will be 40 which is over the hill in my opinion.

----------------------------------------------
Mayweather's 40 now and may be closer to 41 if/when the fight actually happens. As said above Father time needs to be included in this equation. I don't think it's as one-sided as some are saying when you look at all factors.

In regards to Conor not hitting Floyd, do people genuinely think that he wouldn't land punches if Floyd sits back against the ropes and lets McGregor come onto him like the Maidana fight?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

He'd land punches for sure if Mayweather tries to do that and all it takes is one big left or any other big punch that Conor wants to throw and things turn on their head.

It's fascinating hearing some of the opinions of supposed experts like Kellerman and Froch because they're giving Conor no chance. I think that's a mistake.

It seems people are thinking that the Mayweather of five or ten years ago will turn up to this fight. I actually think that this a really risky fight for an ageing Mayweather to take at this point against an unknown quantity in boxing terms and I'll be surprised if it actually happens.

Conor would get schooled without winning a round against Frankie Gavin ffs

posted on 3/2/17

I think people are making out that suddenly Mayweather is 40 and is walking around with a Zimmer frame?!
Does mcGregor know the little nuances of Boxing knowledge that is on the level of Mayweather?
Connor will be gassed by round 3.. and get schooled.

Connor only wins this fight once the fight ends, with people applauding his courage and heart, he would gain respect from a wider audience, but floyd won't care cos he got a big payday again, and reached 50-0 with his easiest fight ever.
I wouldn't count it cos this is a circus fight.
Doesn't mean anything.

This is combat sport and anybody that really knows the sport knows how it can change with one punch.

Is Floyd the favourite? Overwhelmingly. Does that mean Conor cannot win? No.

This is a farce. Hopefully it just goes away.

------------------------------------------------

Does any fighter? Did Berto going into his last fight against Mayweather? Doubt it, didn't stop him giving Mayweather a competitive fight.

McGregor has a good knowledge and understanding of boxing just as he has with most fighting disciplines. He started out in boxing albeit at amateur level before before going into MMA.

Floyd is probably the last person Mac should consider fighting. He would have a much better chance against a slugger like Pac.

Floyd will happily dance around for 2 rounds without thowing a punch to frustrate Mac who will probably swing and miss a few times. Floyd knows all the signs when a boxer is tiring and when he can start to move in. When he moves in it will be for the kill.

Agreed, this all about Money!! For both fighters. Meanwhile poor old Pac is travelling to Aus (check the scorecards from last night's MundinevGreen fight) to fight a nobody for relative peanuts. But QLD tourism makes some $$$ and Trevor Horn gains a profile.

Think it will happen tbh

A) Because of the money
B) Still don't think Floyd will leave his legacy on 49-0 and what a easy way to make 50-0
C) Because of all of the hype
D) The confidence from both parties it will happen

Imagine it will happen this time next year or late this year
