You ask Why didn't other boxers never try and play him at his own game?


Do you not think that every trainer and fighter that has gone in the ring thinks the same as you? Its when the fighters are in their the ring that they are overwhelmed with how slick The money man is? Have you never watched post fight interviews? 49 have tried and failed and he has fought some incredibly hard hitting good boxers. They all say the same? Watch his fights and it will become clear. I hate the guy (fine line I know) but he simply is the best there has ever been and only time now will prove it.

McGregor stands no chance in a boxing match even if Floyd has not fought in an age, he is still in the gym on the daily and a top class professional. McGregor wants the fight for the money, McGregor does not want too many more fights and rightly so, earn enough and get out that game with his # in tact. He is a new father and fears only one thing and that's being knocked out (Nate Diaz tap) I can see Mayweather being his last then onto WWE and Movies. good luck to him! he is another one I hate but love in equal measure. McGregor will have only one boxing match and he is not better suited to boxing at all. He is a slick, top draw MMA fighter not a Boxer.

Maybe I only watched a few fights, and they all seemed the same. None of them tried anything new, the first fight I ever seen I thought it was fixed, and considering they were making 200 million per fight it probably was, the boxing was just lame considering these were supposed to be the best in the world.

In all, you could be right, but come on. Its obvious that none of them are trying, if thats 40 fighters that were dicking around for nothing, so ya I think none of them were trying. Or at least trying anything that isnt obvious. And even when they seem to win on there same old strategies, well somehow Mayweather still gets the win. Imagine that?

Here even in this fight with Pacman, even though it was clearly a draw, at best. If you go by points then even then it was Pacman that won. Or at least from what I remembered, and even in this vid, not sure if the guy counted every single punch, but in this vid he counte all clear cut puches landed and did all rounds, and ya! Guess what? Even going on points Pacquiao should have won. The whole thing like the other fights I seen was a joke. I still even remeber the end were Pacquiao said pretty much the same, he really did think he was doing to win on points over Mayweather at the end of the fight and seemed surprised when he lost.


And no MacGregor may be a top MMA fighter right now, but he has only fought 3 top guys at the moment, and only won against 2, that second rematch with Diaz was squeze and should have been a draw, and in a rematch against them, it could be a whole different thing. So he is far from one of the best MMA fighters out there, such a thing doe not exist necessrily. But even for his time, I would not say he is the best, maybe if he won 5 or 10 more fights then ya.

I'f he goes the boxing route, he is likely going to lose and get outboxed, but he has all the tools to beat Mayweather even in that, and if they box with mma 5oz gloves, he will likely KO Mayweather in 3 rounds or so, if not the first. And lets face it the guy is old, and has not fought in a year, no amount of gym time will help that.

But anyways win or lose, MacGregor he needs to get his ass back in MMA so he can get his ass kicked by whoever wins the khabib vs Ferguson fight and that is likely to be the end of that, no more of this gretest eva #. If anything the guy took from Mayweather is how to sell yourself and sell fights. But its way to melodrama with this thing now, I probably wont even watch that fight if it happens.

Anybody remember Prince Naseem Hamed?
That dude is in my top list of boxers.
His battle with Wayne McCollough is awesome.
A little off subject. I am prone to going on tangents.

He got beaten by a mediocre boxer in Nate how do you think he would do against one of the all time greatest?
Nate beat him with wrestling choke. McGregor smoked his ass at boxing. Look at the faces of each at the end of the fights.
Just to add...I see nothing mediocre in Diaz. He is a true bad ass.

He's not trying to punch you in the face. He's trying to knock a home run with your head. Good show man.

Ya, Nate chocked him out, and he tapped out to quickly. But # happens.

Anyways is what people dont seem to get yet is that pure boxing skills does not translate that well when grappling and kicking, elbowing, and dirty boxing is involved. A lot of the moves even the whole bob and weave would not translate to well when there is a knee coming your way while your dipping low trying to be prettyly avoiding a punch.

For all intensive purposes the Diaz brothers boxing techniques so far have served them well under MMA rules. So if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

That and both of them have so much scar tissue on the face that they bleed from a wiff punch, it was no surprise Nate looked like # after those fights, pretty much after every fight both him and his brother are bleeding and cut up. Even when they really did a number on the other guy and barely got hit. Scar tissue on your face can be a real pain.

Those cauliflower ears as well from all those years of wrestling or jiu jitsu or even from just from being punched to much in the ear. They got to bleed those things once in a while. Its nasty, though some people consider that some sort of badge of honor or time put in. I consider it nasty and they should drain that # out on a regular basis. Ever seen somebody's ear explode because of it in a fight when they get hit there. Its not pretty, and pretty sure there are more then a few fights were that happened.
