First topic message reminder :

So it's confirmed.....mayweather vs Conor McGregor.
The lay public and mostly MMA fans will be most enthused by this fight. I think it's the start of a WWE style entertainment farce. People will be going crazy on social media about the legitimacy of this fight and how it's the greatest thing to ever happen. The reality is that it is chalk and cheese fighting......might as well pair Andy Murray up with Freddy flintoff for the WBA belt. The spanner in the works could be mayweather along lay off and age. Is this a horrendous scam fight or should we be excited that boxing is reaching even more platforms?

Fantastic. McGregor will win because he has no strengths.

As for ability to knock him out, I can't think where we've heard that before with Mayweather.

Im saying Mayweathers going in not knowing what McGregor offers, it limits his ability to prepare a comprehensive game plan

It may even force him on to the front foot early on to see what McGregor offers


It's admirable that you're trying but it's all quite embarrassing.

True but Mayweather tends to start slow and cautiously anyway while he figures his opponents out (recent fights anyway).

McGregor's hands are too slow. They look ok fighting non boxers. I watched the Diaz fights again. He looks like he has good power, but he can't move his head.

Floyd murders him. Floyd is a better fighter than Hopkins was and I reckon he has aged just as well. Floyd is selling himself as old, past it and small, so idiots will think he can lose.

The more people paying to see him lose, means more money in his account. The fight will be a farce, but it is smart for both guys to make huge money.

Was it against Poirier or Siver he showed good head movement and faster hands

Against someone like Diaz you can't go too fast, you miss, you over commit and get taken down and that's what cost him first time round against Diaz

You may think Mayweathers aged well but until he's in there you can't be sure, the same goes for McGregors ability in there

Like I said, the unknowns make it intriguing

Its pretty obvious that Floyd is selling himself as old and past it. Even an idiot can see that. However, age obviously does count for something.

You are right about the head movement but that was a different fight and I think McGregor will adapt to what is in front of him. He isnt that stupid.

Guys fair play for disagreeing, your opinions and all that, but I think Floyd picks him apart.

This will be similar to what Hopkins did to Kelly Pavlik, only easier.

It definitely wont go 12 rounds whatever happens. I looked that fight up it went to a decision. You really think that's what is going to happen?

No, I mean the way an old Hopkins made a fool out of a bigger, younger, champion, knock out artist.

He took him to school and disarmed him very easily. Floyd will certainly do the same, with a lot of ease.

I think this fight will be as much of a mismatch as this….

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-e-xF1ZtfY

SBW vs Mcgregor would be a closer fight though even then I doubt Mcgregor would win in that fight let alone standing a chance vs Floyd.

i like the gladiator suggestion mentioned earlier.

Perhaps if it was a joint double header, semis and final on the same day:
semis:

bear v lion
mayweather v mcgregor

final: ?

Now that i would happily fork out ppv for.

SBW is about 110 kilos? That would be an even sillier fight. Mcgregor is about 70 kilos.

It would be good craic to watch though.

True there would be a significant weight mismatch but the gap in terms of boxing would be much less than Floyd vs Mcgregor.

Can imagine SBW being a lot easier to hit than Floyd.

Boxing is a vanity project for SBW. Unlike McGregor he has no boxing background but still has 7 wins and no defeats. McGregor has been fighting including boxing since he was a kid.

you only have to look at the training videos and McGregor's sparring. He hasn't a prayer of beating Floyd. He will give it a go though.

This is all about the dollars!!

Think you might be reading too much into the training videos. Not the first time an opponent has criticised his training videos. In fact it happens nearly every fight.

Conor hasn't boxed professionally. Mayweather wouldn't have a chance in an octagon, same way this guy has no chance in a boxing ring.

I'm Irish and I like Conor, but many plebs over here think he can walk on water.

I dont really like him myself. Think he is a scumbag albeit an entertaining one but I also think he will do better than you think.

I do like him, just can't believe how many think he will be competitive in a different sport.

I doubt the top rally driver could jump into an F1 car and beat Lewis Hamilton.

Its hardly that different. Id say Louis Hamilton could jump in a rally car and do well.

Its also not the first time a brilliant athlete has crossed over into another sport. Id say its more like a rugby league player doing well in union or the other way round. Its almost as if some people think McGregor has never boxed before.

He also had 0 combat experience, unlike McGregor. Mayweather may have been a top fighter but who says he will be still since he hasn't fought in two years?

Combat experience in a completely different sport doesn't matter at all; it would take some pretty damn good to beat a 50% Mayweather, he'll walk it.

i cannot believe the hype in this already, my facebook feed is just all this.

just shows you how stupid people really are these days, wwe hype and build up could sell anything. fair play to these two they know exactly what they are doing and earning a boat load of cash doing it

anyone thinking Floyd may drag the actual fight out and make it bit more competitive than it needs to be in case he wants a rematch. its in his hands he can literally do what he wants with mcgregor in a boxing ring and still wouldn't be under any threat

Main Stream Media have been amplifying the hype.  For example the BBC have been running some hysterical front page headlines.  For a period of time yesterday the front story on their homepage was something like McGregor makes racist remark.   On the Sports Page they were running two or three stories including the top sports story - with a headline along the lines of Mayweather makes a homophobic slur while accusing McGregor of making racist remarks.  The BBC are completely hysterical.

Click on the following for the various stories they have run on it in a short space of time:

I think I'd like the mafia to start running the sport again like it did in Lamotta's day...

That would be a step up from this pitiful crap....If hype is all you're interested in then how about...

Paulie Malignaggi vs Shannon Briggs in the fall....Maybe Derek Chisora v Ohara Davies next spring


Worth 17 pounds of money the hype from those..We can even write in to offer gags and one liners...Donate furniture for them to chuck... Maybe get Adam Smith to say "Mouthwatering Johnny".

For those of you who think Conor's gonna win, listen to these guys who've actually sparred with him.

Chuckling away at some of the deluded nonsense up there^

999 times out of 1,000 Floyd beats McG in a boxing match. The 1 time McG wins, it's luck not skill. If it happens in 6 weeks time, it'll be luck, not skill

SBW vs Mcgregor would be a closer fight though even then I doubt Mcgregor would win in that fight let alone standing a chance vs Floyd.

A novice fighter from another sport coming into boxing and beating a mor experienced fighter

That can't happen apparently Whistle


Sonny Bill didn't fight one of the greatest boxers of all time did he, would I be right in thinking you're Irish?

He also had 0 combat experience, unlike McGregor. Mayweather may have been a top fighter but who says he will be still since he hasn't fought in two years?


Botha still gave SBW a lot of trouble and he's definitely not in good shape and 48. Has fought too many fights well past his prime. They needed to make it 10 rounds as to not embarrass SBW.

Mayweather is 40 and hasn't lost a fight.

The point is that even someone in prime fitness like SBW was struggling with an ageing veteran. He's got more boxing appearance than Mcgregor too.

The comparison with McGregor is that SBW also isn't a boxer.

It shows obviously that you can't just cross sports and expect to do well.


Also Bernard Hopkins has won fights at the age of 49 and even he's not as accomplished as Floyd.


I find it amusing that some people actually think Mcgregor stands a chance.

For those of you who seriously believe Conor has a chance just compare the sparring sessions of both fighters:-

Let's be fair to Conor...After all John Saxon did well in that tournament in Enter the Dragon.

Man, this is funny. The hype is unbelievable, and, judging by my mates, this will be bigger than Pac v May PPV wise. All for what is a mismatch of the highest order

But - its fun, so i care not

I care...Everytime I think Boxing reaches rock bottom it surprises me..

I think I'd like the mafia to start running the sport again like it did in Lamotta's day...

That would be a step up from this pitiful crap....If hype is all you're interested in then how about...

Paulie Malignaggi  vs Shannon Briggs in the fall....Maybe Derek Chisora v Ohara Davies next spring


Worth 17 pounds of money the hype from those..We can even write in to offer gags and one liners...Donate furniture for them to chuck... Maybe get Adam Smith to say "Mouthwatering Johnny".

Never been more ashamed to be a fan of the glorious sport..




When you are dealing with such high volumes of money anything is possible. Ethics, morality, standards, tradition etc. all tend to take a back seat.
