    Looks like Conor found his sparring partner down at the local pub..

    I honestly can't see Conor winning this fight, but he would be $180 million dollars richer after the fight so good on him.

    His only chance is to knock him out. He could take a leaf out of Horn's playbook against Pacman and just be the aggressor and hope for the best. He will be able to take Floyds hits it's just getting a good shot on him that will be the problem. Mayweather is the only one that has anything to lose legacy wise. Free shot for McGregor

    Mayweather will finish him within the distance with a KO. McGregor wont be able to fight non stop for 12 full rounds. He will tire and Mayweather will end him. Boxing is no joke of a sport like the UFC fights think it is. It takes conditioning to with stand 12 rounds. Most UFC fights are fully gassed after 3 x 5 minute rounds.

    Smart money is obviously on Floyd. Incredibly slim chance for McGregor to catch him Floyd is just too hard to catch, too technically sound, and that's even facing quality boxers.

    If McGregor is to have a chance, he can't be the aggressor. If he chases Floyd, Mayweather will make him miss, wear him out and make him pay. Still an incredibly tall order but his best opportunity to land a big shot is when his opponent has is committed to his punches. If he's able to land a big counter (as improbable as that), go for broke.

    Still see Mayweather outworking him and a TKO victory after McGregor gasses out and eats a hundred or so punches.

    It loves dropping out. Usually when fast forwarding at 60x
     
  7. Ooo.....60x. I must investigate this upgrade. :superhappythumbsup:
     
  8. Mine was dropped, with force, on the floor last night. I'll just use my harmony remote, the IQ3 has IR too, so it's all good.

    Pretty much how I see it unfolding.

    There is also the possibility Mayweather could **** his hands early on, that'd make it interesting.

    It only takes one punch... but Floyd has avoided that for years against better skilled, more seasoned boxers that have all claimed they would knock him out. Hard to see mcgregor doing what others who've trained all their life couldn't.
     
  10. I hate fight sports, but I'll be buying it and hoping for a simultaneous knockout, so they can both STFU and go away.

    Honestly the buildup is better than the actual in ring matchups most of the time.

    Even if Mayweather fucked one of his hands he is still going to be way to quick for McGregor. If McGregor wins its more of hitting him with one punch not boxing his way to a win.
     
  13. Would laugh my arse off if he just walked into the ring and floored him with a kick to the head or something.

    You can guarantee Mayweather's lawyers have locktite wording in the contract - if McGregor ever tries anything MMA-ish he will be going home without a penny.

    So who is betting on Connor? Apparently most of the money is on him at the moment to win. I want to know where I can take money of these guys?
     
  16. I'm staying well clear of it. I think the only way Connor gets him is by KO, so that's where I'd be putting my money.
     
  17. Spot on. Look how knackered McGregor was after a few rounds with Diaz. Mayweather is probably the best defensive boxer of all time, even though he has 10+ years on McGregor, he won't let him get inside. So the chances of Mayweather getting knocked out are slim to none.

    the best money is floyd winning a points decision, but, it's just not worth the plunge imo.
     
    Agreed. I think it's going to be one of the biggest stitch ups of all time. I'll be surprised if it goes beyond 4 rounds.
