Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor 26th August

Not long to go now, McGregor just completed a 12 rounds open training session with ease, he wasn't putting it all out though but damn at times he was lightning quick with his hands and at 154lbs he's hitting like a truck. Mayweather will surely outbox this lad but I'm telling you now if McGregor catches Floyd with a power shot, it's done. This man is undoubtedly the hardest hitting puncher Mayweather has ever faced. Mayweather being 40, maybe rusty, in it for a payout due to his recent tax issues, you just don't know, McGregor has a punchers chance here. It literally takes one punch and again McGregor is more than capable of delivering it.

I'm quite surprised at how decent McGregor looks though, I expected far less.

Re: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor 26th August

After the Paulie fallout from last week it's becoming clear very quickly that McGregor absolutely battered him. It was already evident from Paulie's damaged face and McGregor being clean as a whistle but having seen the released sparring footage (select footage ofc) it seems McGregor was really trying to beat on the guy and was absolutely battering him.

Still got it Mayweather unless Conor catches him on the button. A lot of people whom thought this was crazy are really starting to turn in McGregor's favour. Virgil Hunter said it best though, he uses Nate Diaz for Andre Ward and he soaks up everything Ward throws, he then reminded us that McGregor busted Diaz open in 30 seconds and then floored him 3 times in the rematch. In Virgil's words, Conor is a very dangerous man, Diaz defended Ward's shots pretty well but couldn't get out of Conor's firing line.

I admire Mayweather, watched as many of his fights as I physically could but he really seems out of his comfort zone here. McGregor got to him, I've rarely seen Floyd bite and he tried to bite on numerous occasions, he just wasn't used to the McGregor-esque Mic style and was caught out. Floyd better turn up for a boxing match here because it reeks of desperation of a man trying to get paid and assuming he's going to coast to a 12 round win with ease.

The last man that I watched turn up just to coast the fight and get paid was Carl Froch, he ended up needing the referee to make a dodgy call to win the fight after being blown away in the first round and floored and dismantled for the next 5-6 rounds.

Mayweather will make McGregor look stupid and amateurish on the night IMO.

I don't think he will, in many ways this will actually be easier for mcgregor, for a start he isn't going to have to worry about mayweather trying to rip his ankle of or choke him plus the rounds are much shorter than he's used to and who has mayweather fought since de la Hoya that had a chance of beating him, no one, even manny was to old by the time they finally met imo if mayweather isn't 100% fit and focused he'll be in trouble

Well TD each to their own opinions on it but taking money from you if l was a betting man would be liking taking candy from a baby.

Re: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor 26th August

TD has it right. A lot including myself don't think Mayweather is truly in this properly. Its too coincidental that overdue tax debts start arising and only then does he make the fight happen, before that it was just a media fantasy. Hes also right on the front that Mayweather very literally cherry picked fights towards the end of his career. He wanted nothing to do with Manny when he was in form but happily took the fight after the Filipinos rapid decline, Maidana is an exception, Mayweather thought he was easy pickings but Maidana nearly decked him and Floyd had to really take a rematch and take him a lot more seriously.

Truth is still the same as it has been for years. Timothy Bradley and Amir Khan are the only two fighters to challenge Mayweather over 12 rounds. Bradley is in his prime and Khan is still the fastest and most accurate at 147. Floyd isn't knocking either of them out. I'm not saying he loses but that by some distance it'd be his most interesting fight.

Mayweather may well school McGregor over a boring 12 rounds. Absolutely no one has McGregor winning a decision. No one is that ludicrous. Myself and others give him that punchers chance though, it literally takes one solid shot to end it and a 20 something fighter with unrivaled power at his weight is more than capable of delivering it.

They said he couldn't box and it wouldn't work. Paulie's face and the way he planted to the floor answered that question.

Andre Ward and Virgil Hunter use Nate Diaz as a sparring partner. Virgil isn't backing McGregor but hes freely admitted he was bewildered that a lightweight MMA (Light MW Boxing) managed to bust Diaz open with clean shots and floor him 3 times. Andre Ward, a Super middleweight-Light Heavyweight world champion boxer has never put Diaz on the floor.

There should be absolutely no question about whether McGregor hits hard. He'll be the hardest hitting striker Mayweather has ever been in the ring with.

Summary. If it goes 12, Floyd wins, doesn't get simpler than that. But so long as McGregor is there for 36 minutes he's dangerous. One solid left hand makes it 49-1.

He could've fought someone with the same level of power that's a natural boxer, I can't see Mayweather fighting Gennady Golovkin anytime soon though.
