    is anyone paying attention to this circus? conor should have dropped his belt if he had plans of switching sports. 4 titles, no defenses :)

    I will probably head to the nearest sports bar and catch a glimpse, but I really don't feel like monetarily being any part of either one of these idiots' retirement plans.

    My money is on mayweather. McGregor doesn't even have the best hands at 145 lbs for MMA, let alone good enough hands to give mayweather trouble. Pacquiao (who's a far superior boxer than mcgregor could ever hope to be) had a fair amount of trouble with mayweather. I'm expecting a repeat of that fight basically. Mayweather is one of the most tactical boxers in the game with his masterful use of clinches and counter hitting. If Nate Diaz can give mcgregor a bad day with his level of boxing then mayweather is going to give mcgregor a real bad day.

    Horrible idea. Pointless fight.

    There is no way in hell I will miss this fight.

    embarrassing "acting" just to create some sort of publicity.

    Im so cynical now about this sport, that I honestly think its all arranged and setup well in advance and they pretend to hate each other etc for the buildup to create the hype and maximize sales.
    Its as real as the stories in the WWE imo.

    Thats the issue I have with it all. Ive always loved the sport of boxing and got into MMA for awhile....but I have been increasingly put off by the silly back and forths "beefs" and over the top personalities they put on months before the fights to hype the event.

    The Klitschko vs Joshua fight restored my faith a bit as they were such gentlemen in the lead lead up and aftermath. Mutual respect! Professional courtesy!! That sells me on fights :agreed:

    I won't be watching "The Money Fight" but I am interested in the outcome.

    Prediction...Mayweather evades punches as he always does...lands a few jabs...but...then he gets sloppy and McGregor hits him with a 3 punch combo and KO's him in round 4?? (I dont know...why not?....if I wind up being correct I can use it to convince people I have powers...)

    I definitely enjoy boxing, I'm really looking forward to Golovkin vs Alvarez, but this one I have no interest in. I want to see real fighters with a career ahead of them. Not a trash talking retired former champion and a trash talking clown that's never laced up. I don't believe McGreggor has the boxing skills to outwit Floyd and get a knock out, or win on points. Floyd is basically going to be a dodge artist that will flurry in the final seconds to get points and frustrate Connor. The only hope of entertainment will be if Connor gets so frustrated he spears Floyd and knocks him out with some ground and pound haha
