That Canadian press conference was bonkers. McGregor is crazy charismatic.

^ He's the Pied Piper. It's unreal.

Even Money was dying with laughter when Conor got the crowd to chant "F the Mayweathers!". That's next level charisma.

They stopped doing that for the health of the fighters. People used to die in the ring or get long term brain damage.


I don't recall that ever happening in any official capacity in the last century. You'd have to go back literally to the mid 1800s for that sorta thing and that's not even the boxing of today at that point.


Here are 10, most of whom were within the last 10-20 years.


I'm not seeing hte link but I'm assuming it's to deaths in the ring. That wasn't that my point. My point was that boxing matches where it kepts going until one man died was the stuff of yesteryear. The deaths that have occured are the resuolt of trauma suffered during the alloted rounds. Tough living.


And my point is that people are still dying even under the modern rules.

You're correct by my initial statement was in regards to the claim that boxing used to have them box utnil one guy drops without rounds. Regaredless, this is splitting hairs and getting into semantics.

McGregor laid it on him something awful in the Toronto press conference. Which is great because the press tour is going to be the highlight. Good for Conor to make some serious coin and good for Floyd to get a golden parachute to help with his tax issues.

Match should be renamed "Money Mayweathers charity boxing match for IRS" considering most of his earnings for this fight will end up with the IRS.

I have to be honest I used to hate Conor for his arrogance and brashness but I am coming around to like the guy. I gained more respect for him taking a rematch with Diaz and kicking his butt even though he didn't have to do that fight. Now he is a huge underdog in this fight and I like to root for underdogs plus I really don't like Floyd that much.

cringe worthy indeed. They are doing way too much to try to force more buzz on this fight.

Feels like a WWE promo except they aren't going to throw any fake punches or elbows.

This whole event is so bizarre. Floyd and Conor will be laughing all the way to the bank.

WAAAAYYY too much money for that to happen. They could both have broken legs and they'll lie to the doctor for the payday.

Your right. That's what happened with Mayweather and Pacquiao. Manny fought with a shoulder injury later diagnosed as a torn rotator cuff that required surgery.

Now why would that happen. Conor even if he loses gets a massive payday and Mayweather gets to pay off his taxes....win win for both fighters.

McGregor has almost zero percent chance of winning this "match". Honestly a top rated golden gloves fighter would probably give Floyd a tougher challenge.

No way. Antone is unshockable.
