    i just want to know what would happen if Connor beats him? Are we talking full on head explosion? I bet if he wins, he will never fight in a cage again.

      Unfortunately for Conor, if he wins everyone will say that it was fixed or that Floyd is over the hill anyways; and if he loses then everyone will say I told you so. So, other than banking a bunch of money, it’s pretty much a lose/lose situation in my opinion; but I’ll still be watching.

        I disagree. If McGregor wins. It will be one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. Think about the fact that McGregor has 0 pro boxing experience. As long as McGregor doesn’t get KO’d he will come out on top.

        yep that’s exactly what will happen, when weidman knocked out anderson, everyone was full of conspiracies about why anderson lost, but when the dust settles you release that anything can happen

    I can’t see Mcgregor doing anything substantial. The only thing in his favor is his age, but Floyd has the movement of someone years younger than him still. It’s going to be an entertaining fight.

    • Don Seigel

      No, it’s not going to be close to entertaining. Anyone intimating that this is going to be a good fight is a jackass. Conor Macgregor would not come close to beating
      Mayweather’s fifth string sparring partners. Boxing is a science and an art that takes many, many years to learn.
