Mayweather vs. McGregor

22 posts in this topic

Love to see that one...and maybe, once again, McGregor would get his mouth slammed shut. He's the Rousey of the male fighters. But.....I wouldn't bet on Mayweather in this one, as I think Connor may have the harder hitting edge...sure like to see this one live, though! ;)

I have the same opinion on the harder puncher, but I think Mayweather is a whole package. Defense and learning from round to round is why he is so darn good. Most of his fights consist of him getting peppered a few times in the early rounds but then he starts incorporating his footwork and once that straight right starts finding the mark it's about over for the other guy.

This fight will happen right after Brock fights Fedor and Rousey fights Cyborg

Dana says, never gonna happen.  Boy, thats a lot of money to say no to.  It would be a horrible fight and I would feel sorry for anybody shelling out the $50plus it would run.  Floyd fights, if youre not a true boxing fan, are terrible, now for the true boxing fans, this fight would be terrible and still would be poised to take home a whopper of a pay day.  Terrible idea for a boxing match, glad its not happening.  Only way I would pay to watch these 2 in a ring is if they were both getting knocked out.  Connor would have zero chance, not even a punchers because he cant throw more than a hybrid right straight/hook and his footwork is worse than Balboa's.

In a pure boxing match, McGregor gets killed. Kickboxing he has a slight chance and in the cage, under MMA rules I think he'd take it to the ground and end it there. my .02

Make the fight boxing rules, with dirty boxing and hammer fists legal. Have it in an octagon, 5 five minute rounds. Instead of boxing gloves, they wear mma gloves. Those rules would help in McGregor's favor a little bit, but Mayweather still wins in a landslide.

I would have to imagine Mayweather would be an overwhelming favorite, so of course I'd put money on McGregor.

 

$100 PPV perhaps?

Last I checked the lines were

Mayweather  -900

and McGregor +500

 

So I would put 100 on Mcgregor for the chance to win 500

Rather than 1000 on Mayweather to win 100

Another cynical, bloated Mayweather circus, another nail in the coffin of boxing. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the Pacquiao/Mayweather fight. A virtually enending parade of douche bag "celebrities", the Burger King King in his entourage and a lackluster fight.

This will once and for all settle the debate. Who is the best boxer? A pro boxer or someone else.....

 

Even if Mcgregor cant win, he also cant lose. After determining what he will take home in pay hes already won.

 

I expect it to be another disappointment just like the Pacquiao fight.

Cant compare this mayweather fight to any other, this isnt even boxing.  Did any of the main governing bodies sanction this bout?  I dont even see the entertainment value as its just going to be a circus and reminder that any money spent watching it, a portion would go to these turdfaces.

Boxing died the day Buster knocked out Tyson.

Alphabet soup "titles" ruined boxing. There's at least a dozen or so sanctioning bodies, and some of those have several different categories of belts per weight division! It's an absolute disgraceful joke! Can you imagine how much the boxing landscape would be if there was only 1 championship belt per division? Even the UFC is starting to water down their championship. Seems like each division has an interim champion now

Growing up I got to see Ali fight on ABC television with Howard Cosell doing commentary.  Then I believe boxing went to HBO.  Now it is Pay per view.   The average person has no contact with boxing these days.   I can't name a single active boxer right now outside of Paquio and Mayweather.

I think it died when the boxers got a guaranteed purse vs what I seem to remember was the winner got x and the loser got x for a fight. Not near the incentive when you make the same no matter what you do but then again part of me suspects they know who will win the fight before it happens.

Maybe an "Inter-continental" belt is on the line here.....

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
