Won't go past 1st round. This is a publicity stunt and nothing more. Anyone who buys this fight is wasting money.

If I'm wrong I'll come back and eat crow.

Ditto.  I've got zero interest in this.

Can't believe that enough people would pay nearly $100 pay per view to guarantee over $100 million!

The hype machine is starting to work on me. Floyd wins easily but I feel like I'll end up watching it one way or another.

I feel like this fight will last longer than most expect. Floyd is a known runner, and a counter fighter, that is not known for his power. I highly doubt he will put Mcgregor away. I Mcgregor dont knock him out in the first 3-5 rounds Floyd will win. Mcgregor has a super strong chin, and one shot KO power, so thats the only thing that has me interested. Well that and the verbal beat down he keeps giving floyd.

I keep putting money on FM as the line drops. We'll see.

I very highly doubt its over in the first few rounds.  Floyd is going to make Conor chase him.  Floyd will find a few opportunities to try and take the offensive IF he chooses after rounds 2 and 3, IMO.

So you're saying he's going to outbox him?

Wonderful insight.  I agree.

Money threw and landed punches than Pac but he ran?

Do you all know what boxing is?

Flyod has no power but Canelo was backing back after Flyod caught him a few times.

 Even the great Pac-man refused to come forward after he felt the lack of power from Money.

CM has no chance in hell to beat Mayweather unless you think Conner could beat Canelo, Pac, JMM, Sugar Shane, Zab Juddah in his prime then stop the BS.

You want to talk about running watch that Diaz fight.

I'm rooting for the American.

Calm down, Francis.

I just dislike the blatant lies/disrespect on the mans skill in the ring.

He's not a runner, he makes you miss and pay. He shows you angles that make you think you see an opening.

If you want to say he's a pos person that's fair to a degree but the lies about this mans skill shows that you don't watch boxing.

That's all I'm saying also are there any CM fans  willing to make a friendly wager?

I watch more boxing that most people.  Could you please point out where I said anything negative about his skills?

Take your time.  I'll wait.

When they made it a pure boxing match I lost interest.  After FM wins this, I'd like a rematch where the rules favor CM and we'd hear Mayweather scream like the bitch he is.

Yeah, great idea.  Let's have a guy in his 40's fight a champion in a sport that he's never trained.

I'd like to see Roger Federer become an NFL running back this season.  Am I doing it right?

If you're going to stack the odds so much in Mayweather's favor by basically tying CM's hands and feet, why have the match?

Because Conor basically begged for it.

While I agree in theory, Connor called this out because he's a crap talker.  So Connor is having to give up his advantages and fight a true boxing match, his mouth wrote a check his butt most likely can't cash

He did it for the check his mouth got him.  He called out a retired fighter that would generate a lot of money.  He wasn't asking to fight active champions.

Sadly, everyone fell for it.

Exactly!  What is his guaranteed take?  Like 80 million plus?

He has great skills and IMO, is a top 10 boxer overall. Problem is, he was in the wrong era when his weight class had so many greats. I'm an 80's baby but I still remember watching Sugar Ray,Marvelous Marvin, Roberto Duran, The hit-man Hearns, Aaron Pryor, Hector Camacho, and the list goes on.  FM has certainly beat some good and I mean good fighters but we all know if he fought in the era I just described, he would not be undefeated.  He's still a top 10 boxer overall.

I'll watch the fight just for the entertainment value.  I don't have any expectations of it being a good fight.

Definitely won't pay $100 for the PPV though.  Either find a bar showing the fight or find a friend dumb enough to pay that much for it...
