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.....

    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
