    Maywether vs McGregor

    Is this really a thing? And if so what is it? A mma or a boxing matchl

    think it would be a boxing match, mayweather wouldnt want to ruin his reputation and if its mma then there is a big chance of that happening, not sure it will go ahead though

    Mayweather has told mcgregor to sort out his issues with Dana Carter at ufc. Get the contract signed and get it in the ring its a boxing match

    Both of them are absolutely helmets.

    Couldn't see McGregor landing a glove on him in a boxing match to be honest. Unless Mayweather has seriously regressed since retiring. It would be much more interesting if they had a boxing match using MMA gloves. A full on boxing match will be a stroll in the park for Mayweather, an MMA match would see Mayweather knocked out within seconds.

    Mayweather has beaten Pacquiao, Castillo, Cotto, Maidana, Marquez, De La Hoya, Alvarez, Guererro, Mosley, Hatton, Judah, Gatti, Chavez, Coralles, Hernandez.......in a boxing ring. Some of the best and/or toughest boxers of their generation.

    Of that list about 2 got close to beating him. He is one of the best defensive technicians of all time and sits up there with the greats. His hand speed is electric, his footwork superb, his reflexes lightning fast, the only thing he lacks in later years is that KO power due to years of hand injuries.

    Conor McGreggor is a good boxer by MMA standards but hasn't even been in a ring with a top 50 fighter never mind the best fighter of a generation. It's a mismatch and about nothing more than money. Unless Mayweather has regressed beyond all recognition in 18 months or so then it's an easy nights work for him.

    Confirmed.

    Bearing in mind I'm not an expert on either boxing or mma..

    Is this "match" not the equivalent of me challenging Stephen Hawkings to an arm wrestle??

    Obviously I'd gub him at it.
    Perhaps it would be a closer thing if we were to debate a rip in the space-time continuum....

    This is ultimately​ a pointless exercise which will only be paid for and viewed by gullible morons (Mayweather v McGregor, not me v Hawkings, obviously).

    Unless they're using mma rules?

    Nah, thought not.

    If this fight is even remotely entertaining then I'll be shocked.

    An amateur (at boxing) fighting Mayweather?

    I'd echo what pretty boy has said earlier in this thread, in straight boxing then McGregor wouldn't even be the best in Ireland little alone taking on the best boxer of a generation

    The build up will be quality as they both have a mouth on them, McGregor has a good chin and may not get knocked out but he will be chasing shadows the whole time, I don't even think it will be over 12 rounds, would imagine 8 or 10

    Freak show, designed to make the 2 of them loads of money. I'll probably watch it, but I certainly wouldn't pay to watch it.

    when's the last time you did pay for PPV.

    This is a strange one, boxing match and Mayweather wins no doubt and also ridicules McGregor to the point his stock hits rock bottom. MMA and it's a different story, could FM cope with being kicked, elbowed and wrestled to the ground, very doubtful. I don't think either would be willing to tarnish their record even for the £squillions this would obviously command. It's never gonna happen.

    Expect Maywether to win then McGregor to demand a rematch using MMA rules. You heard it hear first.

    Mayweather gets his 50-0 in about the least worthy way possible.

    Farce of a fight.

    Anyone daft enough to pay for this farce of a no contest will very quickly realise they have been conned.

    The last time I paid was probably around the same time you did
    Has it been confirmed what sort of rules it's happening under? I can't see Mayweather agreeing to anything other than marquess of Queensberry rules.
    Its Freddy v Jason or Alien v Preditor in a boxing ring.

    I'll be watching out of curiosity.
    Obviously think that Mayweather will out box him and win but one punch can change a fight.

    I think McGregor will last a few rounds. He's used to being hit hard and often.

    Mayweather will be too savy for him though I think.

    Mayweather 12 round landslide and not even close.

    Whole thing is a shambles and this means Floyds last 3(?) fights to get to 50-0 have been against boxing bums.

    One punch can change a fight but if people think that McGregor hits harder than Canelo, Mosley, De La Hoya or Hatton then they are living in cloud cuckoo land

    I can only remember Mayweather being rocked once in his career, think it was against Mosley if I remember correctly

    Hatton hurt him bad did he not?

    As for mayweather/McGregor nothing more than a publicity stunt.

    I will say fare play to McGregor he has done incredibly well to make himself such a big brand now.
