  1. Will McGregor's lack of boxing experience create a level of confusion for Mayweather? Leaving him unable to predict Coner's movements and adjust on the fly. Or, Will Floyd control every aspect, forcing Coner to beg permission to land a hit? Either way, Coner needs to watch out for the lightning fast counter punches Floyd will unleash.

  3.

Good luck to both men. enjoy the fight.

  5. Common, this is just a fake setup fight. Floyd wants to beat Rocky Marciano's record of 50-0 so he has paid McGregor to loose so that he can break Rocky's record. Thats all this is about. Floyd is fake just like his boxing. Nothing real here folks.

  7. Jesus how did everyone buy into this hype? Conor Never Even Boxed…. Im from Dublin and train under a guy who coached in SBG HQ in 2011, we as a team want McGregor to win for the sake of Irish MMA BUT He is fighting the greatest defensive boxer of all time and He did have some trouble to land clean shots against a high level striker but not the best competitor in Denis Siver and that guy is not even top ranked in the UFC anymore. Hope McGregor wins but all these people saying that Floyd has no chance are straight up delusional.

    I've watched all of Mayweather's fights and he's nothing special. I think he's in for a real shock when he gets hit hard by McGregor on the body let alone the face. Plus an MMA fighter will likely have a better chin. Mayweather gotta pray he avoids most of the hard punches and scrapes it on points.

  11. #1, Rocky's record is for Heavyweights, there have been MANY fighters in lower weight
    divisions that have surpassed 50-0
    #2 $300 million? sooo funny how they throw these bs numbers around
    #3 letting the body rest… yeah because he's 40
    #4 the distance is going to be trouble for him, the fast he figures it out the better
    #5 Conor needs to make contact before Floyd can adjust to the distance issue, if he can
    #6 Either way it ought to be interesting

  13. IM CONVINCED IF CONNOR WINS FLOYD MENTALLY WILL NEVER BE THE SAME IT WOULDN'T SURPRISE ME ONE BIT IF MONTHS LATER HE ENDED UP IN A MENTAL INSTITUTION. THERE IS NO REMATCH CLAUSE SO HE WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH THAT DEFEAT FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE FOR SOMEONE WITH AN EGO AS BIG AS FLOYDS IN MY OPINION THAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE. THIS WHITE GUY HUMILIATES YOU AND YOUR FAMILY IN FRONT OF MILLIONS TELLING YOU DANCE FOR ME BOY AND THEN! BEATS YOU AND NOW YOU HAVE TO WATCH HIM CHANGE AROUND THE SPORT THAT YOU SPENT YOUR WHOLE LIFE TO MASTER ON TOP OF THAT YOUR LEGACY IS RUINED AND YOU CAN'T GET A REMATCH IN MY OPINION ALL OF THESE THINGS COMBINED WOULD MENTALLY RUIN FLOYD. I MEAN LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED TO PAULIE IN MY OPINION FLOYD WOULD BE 1000 TIMES WORSE

  15. To all you MMA fans that say that MMA is much bigger than boxing and that "boxing is dying", why is it that the biggest fight in the UFC'S history is a Boxing match? Why is it that the biggest payday that a UFC fighter is getting is happening in a Boxing match? And why is it that the Boxer is making way more money than the UFC fighter? That should tell you something, shouldn't it?

    • Joshua, I just did a quick check and found out that the highest ranking MMA Channel on Youtube is MMAFightingonSBN with 546, 181 Subscribers. Meanwhile, the highest ranking Boxing Channel on Youtube is BoxingLegends TV with 591, 312 subscribers. In comparison, Bellator only has 183, 786 subscribers. Sorry to see that MMA has let you down again.

  17. These MMA fans have no clue what they are talking about. They think that some wild, sloppy punches and wanna be Brice Lee stances are going to make a difference against a pugilist like Floyd! LOL Also, they seem to think Connor hits harder than Floyd. Sorry…A boxer who has spend time perfecting the 5 or 6 punches used in boxing along with developing perfect rhythm and foot work is not going to be overcome by a a guy who has only been tested ONCE in his own sport (Nick Diaz) and has not really fought big names. Boxing requires a lot of time to develop certain skills. Connor lacks those skills. He thinks he knows marital arts. He does not… As I said before you put him up against a REAL martial artist, i don't care if its an old out of shape Steven Seagal or some 120 pound Korean who is a master at Hapkido. Connor would whimper and tap out or get knocked out cold in less than 30 seconds. MMA does not allow real martial artists to join because then Dana White would be out of business 😉 Y'll should really do your home work as far as what is martial arts and what is street fighting in a cage. LOL!

    • Is that what YOU have to offer? No boxing or martial arts knowledge? No intelligent debate as to WHY you think Connor wins? Because 99.9% of Connor's other groupies have not offered any analysis, only insults. One insult after another You guys need to seriously grow up son. I'm a student of both boxing and REAL martial arts (Asian as oppose to wild sloppy swinging) The ignorance is in your mirror, and I do pity you for not having the discipline to learn about the sweet science or real martial arts. I expected so much from you because I thought you might offer some perspective of your own on this fight. I was wrong, but I can live with that because I know boxing 😉

  19. When I think about this fight and try to actually imagine what it will look like its hard to see how Conor can win…..but…..I have a feeling Conor sees it….perhaps it will be Floyd's way of bouncing on the ropes as a defense…perhaps one of conor's shots will connect there.
    I'm not sure but it sure will be good fun finding out I'm just gonna enjoy the fight and stop hating

  21. like everyone of mayweather's fights he's going to win by cheating he's cheated in every fight he's won. my real outlook on the fight is coner is going to lose it and severely hurt mayweather with an illegal combination or hit and be disqualified.

  23. Boxing is "here to stay" and is at the pinnacle because boxing is a martial art itself. It's just a Western martial art. So really the fight is a guy who is a martial artists who is a Jack of all trades but master of none, versus the martial artist who is a master of one style / BOXING. So #TBE

  25. This fight will be a total let down, like the last. Mayweather jumping around a ring for 45 mins while McGregor chases him, and in the end they will call it in Floyd's favor. Too much Hype, not enough fight! Mark my words.

  26. Mayweather is serious about his money and investment in gentlemen's. He seriously invited the 2 black dudes and seriously did not invite the white guy and the black girl because he seriously knows that his "collection of girls" will appeal to the 2bblack dudes and not to the white guy and the black girl. They tried to jokingly invite themselves, but he was serious and did not budge.

  27. Floyd seems very mellow, he's focused. I'm sure him and even Conor are over all the press and media and just want to relax at home till the weigh ins and fight night. So much work put into this stuff, after their adrenaline rush goes down a day or so after the fight I bet they sleep for 3 days straight lol

    • Surprise Surprise Mofos The King is Back the reason Kenny isn't invited is because he is very critical of Floyd and has repeatedly said Conor will win blah blah. Woolley and Jacobs back Floyd to win that's why he incited them and not Kenny. If it really was a race thing then he would hv invited the black girl too but she also backs Conor so he didn't invite her either
