Nobody would have ever done this against Tyson 20-30 years ago. They would have been worried that Tyson would literally kill them.


Dude, a chin is a chin. There is no such thing as training a chin. At alll. Just because McGregor hasn't boxed doesn't mean he hasn't been hit decidedly hit harder with 4 oz gloves than anything Floyd can put out in recent years. If anything puts McG out early it'll be because he gasses from exhaustion.

Now you know why he's called MoneyMay, TMT. Floyd's said on numerous occasions, he's in the check cashing business.

Don't hate the playa, learn the game.

People don't think it's Floyd's power that will knock him out. It's that his opponent is essentially an amateur boxer who has never gone 12 rounds before and will eventually be unable to defend himself after eating 95% of the punches round after round.

I also think people here are overreacting to the Pacquiao fight. The Manny that Floyd fought on that night would destroy McGregor in a boxing match. Floyd had good reasons to be cautious with Manny. But this will be a MUCH easier opponent for him.

Will Mcgregor even go 12 rounds? UFC match=5 rounds x 5 minutes=25 minutes
Boxing 12 rounds x 3 minutes=36 minutes.

I doubt it, I think he gasses but the minute comparison is apples to oranges. How your body has to be for 5 minutes at a time while facing the 5 gajillion ways you can get waxed in mma is light years different from 3 minutes of facing down 2 points of contact. MMA you're dealing with 8 on top of the ground/take down game. Not even close.

I concur. He faded in both fights with Nick Diaz. Unless he's already been working on increasing his stamina (which is still a world of difference compared to the actual fight), he will fade in the end. I think Floyd gets his first ko, in the late rounds.

This is going to be as bad, if not worse, than the Ricky Hatton beat down w/ late stoppage.

I think McGregor is going to try to dirty this fight up. A lot of holding pushing taunting and trash talking. I think it's likely he could be disqualified if he goes too far.

I think it will be the body blows that do him in. Floyd being one of the best in business will know how to keep winning rounds while frustrating Conor. I know thats one of the digs that his critics have against Floyd because he doesn't go for the kill, but uses the sweet science to get his W's.

this is true. if someone has a chin they have a chin. if they dont they dont.

both klitchko bros are great boxers. one has a chin the other one may be a better boxer but has no chin at all. I could accidentally bump into his chin and he would be KO'd. I believe the Connor has a chin. And I dont think mayweather after breaking his hand a couple of times is about to Knock anyone out that has an actual chin. now he could whip him so bad with the gloves to the point he falls down. but it wont be some KO blow where he's all shaken up looking around the ring not knowing where he is.

It's going to be another boring Mayweather fight. I'll watch it but I'm more looking forward to GGG vs Canelo. Now that fight will be exciting.

I'll wait for it to come to ShowTime/HBO, whichever. I subscribe to both. It usually takes more time for a Mayweather fight to air in those venues. I'll wait. No way I'm spending $99.95 for this farce, I can wait.

I will spend for Canelo vs GGG. I believe this is going to rank high in excitement.

I don't think this fight will go the distance. I like GGG in a KO early. The longer it goes the more it will favor Alvarez.

I find his "fights" to be unwatchable. I guess I don't appreciate running around the ring playing tapsie that much.

McGregor needs to finish Mayweather within the first 5-6 rounds because Conor's gas tank is trash. I see him gassing out by the end of the 5th round (boxing is 3 min rounds compared to UFC's 5 min rds) and if that happens Mayweather will probably finish him with a TKO.

Conor's gonna have to try to do what Maidana did and throw a super high volume of punches and try to bully Mayweather but I don't know if his gas tank will allow that for more than a few rounds.

Anyone have the advanced PPV buys for the fight? 5 million buys is the projection.

Don't forget the eight weeks of road work, sparring, bag and mitt work. They'll say 36 minutes but they gotta long ass camp to prepare for that fight.

The last really good fight Floyd had was against Canelo. I haven't bought a fight since.

this is a stupid fight... boxer vs a non-boxer... if McGregor somehow manages to land solid punches, it would be really funny.

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