Re: Mayweather vs. McGregor - August 26th

I think Mayweather may take it easy on McGregor for the first couple of rounds, only because he wants another huge payday in a rematch. If McGregor makes it through 4 or 5 rounds, you have to consider it a success.

A first-round knock-out pretty much ends McGregor's boxing career and any chance of a rematch.

Re: Mayweather vs. McGregor - August 26th

I don't see Floyd putting himself in a position to land a 1st or 2nd round KO. He's too smart to engage in a fire fight. He'll spend those rounds on learning Conor's distance and timing while landing body shots. The skill level here is whats gonna drain Conor faster than anything else. He'll likely be punching nothing but air after the 2nd round. After that the fight goes on for however long Floyd wants. He's not gonna risk fighting him like he fought Maidana in the their first bout regardless of his in-experience.

For $100, there better not be anyone getting a KO/TKO at least until the 3rd or 4th and it better not be a 12 round snoozer

Yeah, this thing is all spectacle. If you want an awesome boxing match save you money for GGG-Canelo.

All fun and games but Conor fans were seen flipping the bird and cursing at Mayweather's kids. Kinda filthy if you ask me.

With Mayweather's history of domestic violence, no doubt his kids have seen and heard worse.

Re: Mayweather vs. McGregor - August 26th

The fact that Mcgregor had Mayweather on the attack and that it went 10 rounds speaks volumes about Mcgregor. But jaysus dude, learn to keep your hands up.

I don't think he could keep his hands up. He was gassed.

Re: Mayweather vs. McGregor - August 26th

It only went 10 rounds because Mayweather was playing the waiting game... waiting for McGregor to tire out. Mayweather started actually trying in the 7th or 8th and in the 9th McGregor was done like dinner.

For a boxer, McGregor is a helleva MMA fighter. A boxer he isn't.

Re: Mayweather vs. McGregor - August 26th

Looked like Mayweather was looking for a DQ a couple of times because he kept turning his back and opening himself up.

BTW, the fact that the arena was pretty much empty during the other fights tells you how healthy the sport of boxing is currently.

It was over once Mayweather decided it was over. Entertaining fight overall, definitely felt like an exhibition.
