Kash won that fight by about 3 rounds. Absolutely no danger McGregor won that fight let alone by 3 rounds according to one card. Forgetting the Edinburgh v Glasgow rivalry that's a shocker.
MTK have invested in McGregror and that's the reason he won. If he steps up to world level he gets stopped, he's too easy to hit and his footwork is poor.
Didn’t use the advantage in height at all, kept coming down low making it easier for kash to land big shots very rarely used his jab played into the hands of kash far too easily imo a great fight to watch but both fighters as they are now will get hurt at world level very raw
Not surprising. Fair few radges in the McGregor crowd
Aye, seen a couple of his fights and loved them, big prospect. However he attracts the ‘Gorgie Rules’ crowd who are utter fannies. When it comes to Edinburgh boxers (and Scottish) I support them all but Lee’s following are putting me right off him I’m afraid.
Not seen this fight yet as in Cyprus for the football but have Sky Plussed so looking forward to watching....and scoring it when I get home.
Just watched the fight and scored it 116-115 to McGregor. Lee won the10th for me so scored it 9-9. Lots of close rounds though, in fact most of them could easily have gone either way. What I will say though, the commentary was VERY pro Farooq which can sway how the audience perceives it. Even the pre fight chat was almost all about Kash. Great fight though and whilst I think Kash is the more talented boxer, Lee seems bigger at the weight and is more of a fighter. Hopefully any re-match is a couple of years down the line in front of a full Hydro for a World strap.
Doubt a world strap for Lee. He'll will have to move up and they boys hit a lot harder than someone 5 inches and a stone lighter. Poor footwork and wild swings even if he stays down someone like inoue or seriously hurts him
