So this fight is actually happening. There was speculation for a while even on this site. But in all, under the rules there going to fight, ie 10 oz
boxing gloves and boxing rules. Mayweather has pretty much all the cards on his deck, not that I think mayweather is the greatest boxer of all time,
But he may be the best defensive/counter boxer of all time, and he knows how to sell himself and when to pick and choose his fights. The last two
fights and really the only fights I remember were the pacquiao fight, pacman was on his way out, even got ko'd some fights back before the mayweather
fight and low and behold now of all times mayweather wants to fight him, not all those years before.
And the oscar de la hoya fight it was same ol, both fighters were not looking there best before they finally made those fights, which really should
have happened years and years earlier in there carrers and when they were on top. Like I said knows how to pick his fights and when.
And both of those boxing matches should have been declared a draw, especially the pacquiao fight, and only because i dont even really remember the del
a hoya fight, other then it was pretty much the same deal, skirting on points and a few shots, which did not even stagger the other fighters. In all
it was more hype then anything.
And MacGregor, hes got a punchers chance in this fight, and he can win if he can draw mayweather out of his boxing style, but its likely that watching
the nutcracker ballet would be more exciting then this fight will be, because it would be just some shots and tangle then break up you two, ect ect
for 12 rounds with mayweather slipping in more shoots then macgregor, enough to get the win.
I see this going to the cards and judges in mayweathers favor, because thats what he practiced his entire life to do and is good at and has done in
the great majority of his fights. This is a spectacle more then an actuall boxing match, but it is interesting, in mma, conor would mop the floor
with mayweather likely would not last a minute, but in boxing I think he is good enough and tough enough to hang in there with mayweather for 12
But only simply because mayweather is not really a hard puncher ko people puncher. But unless he messes up his game and brings mayweather out of his
rhythm and breaks up his whole boxing game to land that one clean shot and knock him out, its going to be the same old #. And mayweather will win on
points. I dont see him KOing Connor, but it could happen as well.
Now if they boxed with mma gloves on, or even lighter boxing gloves, like I was hoping then it would be a more who knows fight, since floyds whole
game is more on the defensive side and irritating opponents. But with mma gloves on, half the things he throws leaves him exposed a lot with smaller
gloves on, and way he fights defensively would be null and void in a lot things with those tiny gloves on, because one of those shots will get through
with those tiny gloves on, would not even be to do any of those pretty duck and cover rope a dope moves, simply because those small gloves will get
through eventually, and all it would take is one.
If they boxed with mma type gloves on, I would say they would be evenly matched, and both would have a punchers change, floyd with his boxing
experience, and MacGregor with his mma punching experience, and the fact that the whole way they would box would change completely with small gloves
It would have been more of a fight then a boxing match, but under those rules with those gloves on like there going to fight or box, like I said
pretty much all the cards are in Mayweathers deck, even though MacGregor does stand a punchers change, in boxing that means a lot less then it does in
MMA per the obvious reasons, some of which I stated above.
But ya, should be an interesting fight to see what happens, not going to be buying it, as I would rather watch the nutcracker ballet, but may be
looking at it one day on the internet. Either way, I think MacGregor is done, win or lose he will make lots of money, and I dont see him going back
into MMA to fight again, not with dudes like Kabib and Ferguson waiting for him, in all, even the dudes he beat while in two cases were spectacular
and surprising, I dont see him doing that to others or even to those same fighters again if they had a rematch.
And he seems like a smart guy, I don't see him getting back into the shark pool that is MMA if he makes that much money from this fight, hes got to
know that its just a matter of time, and a short time at that.
But Connor MacGregor has made me believe in leprechauns and the luck of the Irish all over again. I wonder were he will keep his pot of gold
after this fight with mayweather? Just messing, but not really, in all its an interesting match-up and possibilities, but unless he does something
drastically different in this boxing match, hes just playing in mayweathers game, he to hunts for those pots of gold over the rainbows, easy money on
both parts. Its going to be quite a spectacle either way.
