Money Mayweather vs Money McGregor = Whole Lotta Money - Page 3 Empty Money Mayweather vs Money McGregor = Whole Lotta Money

Post by owen10ozzy on Tue 14 Feb 2017, 12:51 pm

First topic message reminder :

Won't post a link as easy enough to search, however it appears that the fight the world has been talking about for the better part of 18 months is almost over the line. Various media outlets have reported that Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have agreed to the terms for a match up against one another with a reported billion dollars at play on the table.

Whilst both men have agreed to the contracts they have yet to be signed due to a 3rd party holding up the deal getting over the line. The common line of thinking is that said person is Dana White of the UFC (although this is just conjecture at this time). However whoever is holding up any potential is expected to step aside for the right price and the fight is said to most definitely be taking place.

Now obviously legal issues arise plenty of times during boxing negotiations and given how difficult fights of this magnitude are to make it wouldn't be a shock to see this suddenly collapse...that being said throughout all of the hype and talk of this fight in last 18 months, neither party had fully committed to negotiations..the sheer fact that they apparently have would suggest this deal is very much immenint and the fight will go ahead..

So whose looking forward to it? Who do we think wins...does anyone give Conor even the smallest of chances and most vitally in a year which seems to be going very well for boxing does that add to what is an apparent growth year in the sport or is it just a circus act to attract the masses?

Mayweather keeps making noises how GGG is easy work and he'd work him over - obviously says this from his stance of retirement but is happy to tackle a non professional boxer. Clown of the highest order - and McGregor isnt far behind.

Relevant enough to reply to each time

The Mcgregor fight is a joke Rodney but lets get real anyone in his position would take the fight, that amount of money for a fight he could win one handed with a blindfold on.

Shouldn't be allowed Hammer, can't see how anyone would be interested in this and the money touted is ridiculous. Be nice if they could both knock each other out.

I don't care for it myself and likewise can't understand the interest, it's a futile exercise; master boxer is capable of embarrassing an amateur.

But the money they are both demanding is based on the money they and their handlers know they can generate. It isn't a loss making venture for the sponsors and networks that will be involved - both in the build up and then the event itself - plus of course the bookie dens across the world.

So the only reason it is being mentioned is because the number crunchers know the kinds of audience they can generate.

Not disputing the money that can be made mate, the power of social media and networking is phenomenal and today's generation unfortunately enjoy all the rubbish beforehand. Mayweather for all his ability the best of all is his media prowess for lets be honest he ain't pleasing on the eye to watch, otherwise guys like Whitaker, Ward would be lauded over like Mayweather is.

Floyd is too small. If he were a natural MW GGG would be really easy work for Floyd. It would be Floyd v Canelo all over again.

Nonsense - GGG is a different animal to Canelo - lets be honest the too small is bo11ocks also - it makes me laugh all this P4P Mayweather is great he beat a bigger man nonsense, look at someone like Holyfield outweighed by near 3 and half stone and fought in the pocket with great heavies like Bowe and Lewis - that's a P4P star.

It's also a bit silly to dismiss Mayweather's P4P status because he didn't fight in an aggressive style, he has often beaten bigger men than he.

Floyd would toy with GGG if he were naturally 10-12 lb heavier. Take your blinkers off.

It's also stupid to make statements like that, he's not 10lbs heavier and if he were what affect does that have on his speed?

No one toys with Golovkin...Sad thing is he has waited till he is 35 to get a move on.

Don't care who is avoiding you...You're legacy is defined by longevity and who you beat.

The 2nd criteria is going to be a problem for him me thinks.

I think he would beat him with plenty to spare.

Not much affect to his speed. Still be too fast for GGG.

About the same. Cotto was bigger when Floyd fought him.

He does a lot better than Jacobs, who many picked over GGG. Did you watch that fight, or the Brook one. GGG hates guys that can move. He wouldn't tear in like those other guys. GGG punches hard, but he thinks a lot before he attacks.

I've yet to see anyone who had Jacobs winning to be honest and GGG wasn't exactly taking his time against Brook was he, he just let his hands go marching forward.

I don't understand why you feel the need to go so over the top with every opinion, still trolling I presume?

Hagler, Hopkins, Robinson (as a Middleweight), Monzon, Greb and almost every single Middleweight champion has struggled against former Welterweights or had one guy they've struggled with in general.

I'm not the one making the statement, if you're unable to back it up we'll move on.

Who Brook ? I daresay Bashing him into submission in 14 minutes is struggling would you ? he had no regard for Brook and rightly so - same thing with Mayweather.

I'll post you a link when I'm at my pc, don't worry I have evidence to back it up. Hope you're man enough to accept that many did pick Jacobs.

Look forward to proving you wrong and I will.

I'm not calling it a robbery. I stated Many believe Jabobs won and Hammer called me a liar. If he googles the words GGG v Jacobs robbery, he will find plenty scored it for Jacobs. Fighters and media alike. I scored it for GGG. The knockdown separated them for me.

Rodders that's a Swiss cheese argument. Weight difference at lower weights is greater proportionally, holy was small for a heavy but there are plenty that will argue that size v mobility is a trade off for the big guys.... and Holyfield was a great fighter

Reality is Floyd by today's standards of weigh-in is not and never has been a welter. He gave weight away in all his later fights bar manny. His choice, but those are the facts.

Golovkin is far too big for him. Should he shut up about gg? yep. Is he an atg as a welter? probably not. Is he an atg p4p? Of course he is.
