Anyone else kind of excited to see this?  I’m not a huge fighting fan, used to watch MMA a lot but this fight just seems to transcend everything and is a HUGE sports event.  It is a historical super fight.  Talking hundreds of millions of dollars in purse money.

Anyone interested?  Who do you have?  I want to take McGregor, I hope he takes it however Mayweather loves to run around and I can see him winning it in decision.  McGregor has a nasty left hand, but he’s used to fighting close with almost no gloves.  The bigger gloves might wear his arms after a while.

Everyone doubting McGregor though, that’s when he’s the best.  You listen to any boxing legend and they say he has no chance.  I wouldn’t doubt this man.  He’s younger, taller, longer, stronger, he’s been hit in the head by knees, fists, elbows with 4oz gloves and never been knocked out.  We’ll see.  The problem again is going to be if McGregor can even lay a hand on him.  Fight is in August.

All hype for nothing.  Boxing must be advertised by Steve Jobs brother because there’s nothing special to see really.  I wouldn’t spend a penny to watch it.  I don’t know if Mayweather is too old to play now but if he’s fit I would imagine he has the advantage.  I hope he gets pummeled.  I wish it was a MMA fight though.

Mayweather is going to turn McGregor’s face into ground beef. Given Floyd won this fight already by negotiating a boxing match. Of course Mac would destroy him in the octagon but that’s not what we have here.

Mayweather will dance and run until Mac gets frustrated and makes bad decisions. I don’t think it goes more than six rounds. Mac probably knows he has no chance but is laughing all the way to the bank. I really hope I’m wrong because I despise Mayweather.

I agree, a fight on Mayweather’s turf seems like a slam dunk for him. I think your analysis of how it will go is spot on.

He is someone that takes fights he knows he will win. Otherwise I don’t think he would have done this.

Precisely!
It’s a circus event worth millions.
