    Default Mayweather v McGregor: Confirned

    Looks like the fight will be in August. This is gonna be ugly for McGregor. I like Floyd but I do hope that McGregor will catch him with one solely because it'll be unexpected and not the complete mismatch that the fight should be in theory. It's gonna cost a small fortune to watch on PPV I'm gonna head up to the pub to watch it.

    Anyone give McGregor a chance?

    However much I want McGregor to win, theres absolutely no chance he does. A guy who hasn't had a pro boxing match against one of the greatest, its a little ridiculous. Same goes for Mayweather if it was MMA, he has no chance against McGregor in a cage.

    i told myself id never pay to see that lame fight but the hype is kinda getting to me. Plus the undercard fights will likely be way better

    I expect McGregor to get his ass kicked.. while getting very rich is the process. But you never know right?

    Can I take your bet? Jesus do you enjoy losing.

    There is zero chance McGregor does anything.

    Mayweather is one of the best boxers pound for pound in history why would anyone think a relative novice could touch him?

    I guess the consumer is that stupid.

    yeah, the best boxers in the world can barely land a single clean punch on Floyd

    i bet McGregor will quickly find that out too, get frustrated and start trying to fight dirty

    I'd laugh my arse off if McGregor landed a kick on Mayweather

    If somehow mayweather won, and he was a hero amongst whites, it would be considered racist.

    No. He means if that was the exact scenario, we have people living in the US who wouldn't even watch the fight and do some mental gymnastics that connects Mayweather fans to the historical significance of Minstrel shows. Sounds like a future HuffPost opinion column.

    I meant macgregor but yea what bob said makes sense too.


    I think the better fight would be both of them in the MMA cage because boxing is limiting what both men are allowed to do.

    Macgregor is probably the tougher and stronger man of the two but Floyd has a better specialization of a particular skill.

    Also boxing with bigger gloves limits the KO advantage of macgregor.

    Everything is setup for him to fail.

    This fight will be a big snoozefest like Mayweather / Pacquiao

    they should be able to bite each other to keep things interesting

    It's estimated mayweather will get 400 million and Macgregor 127.
