DonRocks Posted August 25, 2017 Share Posted August 25, 2017 Maybe I'm jaded, but even at 40-years-old, it seems virtually impossible that Floyd Mayweather could possibly lose to Conor McGregor in a boxing match, which is to take place tomorrow night. I have little doubt that in a street fight, McGregor - at age 29 - would destroy Mayweather, but in a boxing match where you can't kick? No way - it's a completely different skill set, from how you square off against your opponent, to the distance between the fighters, to, well, to just about everything. This is not unlike the world racquetball champion trying to beat Roger Federer in tennis. It would be *so* much more interesting if it was just a no-holds-barred fight, but Mayweather would *never* agree to that; on the other hand, McGregor is receiving an unprecedented payday for a mixed martial artist, so I'm sure he'll be just fine with being knocked out in the fourth round, given that he'll be making about $100 million from this. Hell, I'd fight Mike Tyson in his prime for $100 million. Granted, about 1% of that would go towards my medical expenses, but it would be worth it. By the way, pay-per-view is $99! It would be *hilarious* if McGregor said, "To hell with it," and kicked Mayweather in the nuts. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
