I could not find a thread on this so I made a poll. this is obviously a hot topic as I have talked to friends and co workers about this fight who never watched a ufc/boxing match before and are suddenly very interested to see how this pans out.
please leave thoughts and opinions as well.
one question I have is could anyone recommend good streaming sites that do live tv? especially pay per view in this instance.
I look at it like this. Even the highest caliber boxer doesn't stand a chance of out-boxing Mayweather. So McGregor's chances are actually as good, if not better, than everyone who's faced Floyd. Since McGregor has insanely scary knockout power in his left hand if he lands something either awkwardly or while in the clinch he can definitely throw Floyd off for a moment. I think that Floyd knows this though so he'll avoid clinching and do his usual ultra-defensive approach while constantly staying busy. Hopefully McGregor can land something here and there at least just to get our attention and keep the bout interesting. It's possible though that he lands a nice compact left hook while clinching and that's where I give him a shot at victory. It's a slim shot, but as good as any other elite pro boxer due to his power.
I think the press they did for this will be better than the actual fight. McGregor's Fuck You suit was awesome
Tbf at the same time it's nothing new and nothing we haven't seen from him before. The over the top class room clown thing is shit and it clearly didn't even get under Mayweather's skin like it was intended.
It'll be a boring fiht because McGregor isn't a boxer and Mayweather is the best technical modern boxer, but his game is all defense. Mayweather will win but only because Connor won't have the stamina to follow through with the entire course of the fight.
