Default Mayweather-Mcgregor Aug 26

Seems odd to me? Kinda like a circus act. If boxing rules apply and as much as I dislike mayweather I think it's gonna be his fight to win.

Quote:
Mayweather and McGregor both confirmed the fight on social media on Wednesday.

Terms of the deal were not available, but it will either be at the MGM Grand Garden or T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The Nevada Athletic Commission on Wednesday approved the request from Mayweather Promotions to put on a boxing card on Aug. 26 at the MGM Grand. The venue could change, however, to T-Mobile.

The bout will be distributed via Showtime pay-per-view. It will be an entirely boxing card. Mayweather Promotions will be the lead promoter.

It is a stunning development given that Mayweather, the greatest boxer of his era, had said he was retired after compiling a 49-0 pro record from 1996 through 2015. But with a fight which could pay each man in excess of $100 million, he reconsidered.

Neither UFC president Dana White, Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe or Showtime’s Stephen Espinoza could be reached for comment.

Mayweather is considered the greatest boxer of his generation and among the best of all-time. The fight with McGregor, in addition to paying him in excess of nine figures, will give him the opportunity to improve to 50-0.

Mayweather will destroy him in the 1st if it's boxing rules. I think it's Macgregor's ego getting him into a butt whippin

McGregor with the left, in the 9th. Mark it down. Its a long shot but hey, that's why they have the fight. On paper Mayweather should pick him apart.

His ego also just got him over a $100 million dollar payout. He is a very smart man.

I don't think Mayweather has the power to remotely destroy McGregor. McGregor is too big and too strong and I don't think Mayweather will want to even try to "destroy" him because that will in turn put Mayweather in danger with McGregor's left hand. I do think he will likely wear McGregor down and I don't think McGregor's conditioning will be enough to chase Floyd all over the place. That being said, McGregor still has a punchers chance and I'd gladly step in the ring with Mayweather for that kind of payout. Conor is a smart man.....especially if he leaves the game with his brain intact. Much smarter than these guys that get paid 50K to get a severe concussion or two every year.

True. McGregor has a boxing background and has beaten some really good ones. Most of the top mma fighters in the sport have real boxing coaches. McGregor is no different. I think he would have a belt in boxing too if he wanted. Unlike mayweather's usual competition, McGregor is long and has better than average speed, with knockout power in both hands. He also understands angles very well. Will he win, I don't know. Will I watch and root for him, yes I will.

I know Mayweather is passed his prime, but this was the greatest pound for pound boxer in the world. McGregor might be good but the list of truly great fighters this guy has beat is insane. I can't see him winning a round unless he hits the five finger death punch.

That being said, he's got nothing to lose. If Floyd wins, he lost to the greatest pound for pound boxer. No shame and set financially for life.

When has Mayweather destroyed anybody. He is a defensive fighter who punches for points. It wins, but i doesnt threaten many ppl.

If Mcgregor can make contact, i think he has a shot

The thing McGregor has going for him is that Mayweather has no power and no threat of a knockout. McGregor won't have to worry about defense he can come in swinging.

Conor has lightning in that left hand and if he can connect it'll be interesting.

He's 49-0 with 26 KOs. That's better than a 50% KO ratio.

Bet $900 on Floyd and if Floyd wins you win $100

Bet $100 on Connor and if Connor wins you win $550

(NOTE: In both cases if you win you also get your initial bet money back as well)

This is going to come down to points, just like all of the last Mayweather fights I've watched. MacGregor is a great MMA fighter, but he has spent far more time working on other aspects of MMA than the technical side of boxing. Mayweather is too fast to get caught hard enough by MacGregor to get knocked out, and with the larger padded gloves I don't think there's any way he doesn't win easy.

LOL

You're acting like Connor has the strength of Andre The Giant
Floyd has fought 49 professionally trained boxers at least SOME of whom have stronger punching power than Connor AND have connected to Floyd's head and Floyd came out unscathed.

This will be another Rousey type fight.

Do you watch mma? Professional striking is part of their training. Rousey was a judo player with submissions. She couldn't strike and met strikers in the end. Conor can hold his own. He may not win, but it won't go as you predict.

This. McGregor doesn't have to worry about getting knocked out with the gloves they will be wearing. If he can keep his wind he can whip on Floyd. Bottom line is he probably doesn't care if he wins or loses.....he's a business genius. He's gonna get $100M.

I'll fight the 1990 Mike Tyson right now for $100,000. He won't kill me and I won't win but I'll have a new F250 tricked out tomorrow.

Your reaching lol I didn't make an assumption about floyd. He didn't get to 49-0 by being a slouch. And he has Conner in his element and will probably bash him and make him look like a punk. That's what will probably happen. What I said was "I" want to see mcgregor put him on his ***. Nothing else to take away from it

I may have missed but what gloves are they wearing?? This will make a difference...

I hope McG gets tired of chasing him and says "F it" and kicks chickenboy in his face... Mayweather will be running for his life like he has in the past.. McG's cardio better be tops because he will be doing a lot of chasing.. No way in hail Mayweather stands and bangs with CMc.. Wont happen.

What a circus act this will be.......

the incentive is on the next fight after you win you can control the lions share of the purse

it's all marketing

if i were to fight floyd why would he give me the chance to win $100M when he is the one that is responsible for bringing the 2.9M pay per view viewers to the table

no one would pay to see me fight
they are payin to see floyd fight
so floyd gets the biggest cut of the check

I would be willing to bet that there are more people wanting to see McGregor fight. He has two countries behind him.

if i were to fight floyd why would he give me the chance to win $100M when he is the one that is responsible for bringing the 2.9M pay per view viewers to the table



no one would pay to see me fight

they are payin to see floyd fight

so floyd gets the biggest cut of the check


Floyd is an astute businessman...dude knows how to make cash.

He's a more astute a-hole though.

Mayweather ain't knocking anybody out, but he'll probably win by decision.

I cannot wait to see as this ramps up, the amount of trash talk going on is going to black out the sun. Got my popcorn ready!

Correct. Boxing is a dead sport and boring as hell, I'm watching for the trash talk and McGregor.

Mayweather will destroy McGregor in a boxing match. He will only box him for that reason. If it was a actual fight, mayweather knows he doesn't stand a chance.

Couple of things. You cannot compare amateur boxing experience to Mayweather. The fight will most likely be at 145 lbs. due to Mayweather's demands. This will play to more of a natural weight for Mayweather and McGregor will be more drained at this weight. McGregor has shown to gas in a 5 round MMA fight, he will surely gas chasing Mayweather around a big square ring that is Mayweather's home. The boxing gloves will negate a considerable amount of McGregor's power and stamina. Mayweather is an extremely intelligent boxer and he will no doubt fight his fight as he always does.

Realistically, McGregor has the same punchers chance that all of Mayweather's previous opponents had, but these were lifelong professionally trained boxers and none of them ever put Floyd in trouble. Quite honestly, McGregor doesn't beat any of the top 10 ranked boxers in his weight class. My bet is that McGregor gases and Floyd cruises to an easy victory...Of course, I have been wrong before.
