i was chatting to a boxing guy last weekend who said this is like Tyson against Buster Douglas. In order for McGregor to have a shot, Mayweather would need to:

split with his wife
split with his manager
split with his long term trainer
slack off in training
(consume a bunch of recreational drugs???)

As always in boxing, there is a puncher's chance, but if Hatton can't lay a finger on Mayweather, what chance has McGregor?

Mayweather is old  McGregor can hit him if he has lost any of his elusiveness, that said he is going to embarrass the UFC and himself, Ibam sure the cash will soften the damage to his reputation after this farce.

THIS IS NOT  A REAL FIGHT
The promo is straight out of the WWE play book
the result will depend completely on the what will bring the rematch the biggest sales and maybe a mcgregor V   Malignaggi  now they have serious beef  afterward to suck up the last of the suckers remaining cash

Came across that article on Boards. All the McGregor fanboys praising it.

It makes Sheriff Street sound like Syria.

Wright Thompson is a very accomplished writer too.

It doesn't really make Sheriff St sound like Syria. It makes Sheriff St sound like Sheriff St.
 
I don't think the writer made anything up. Although no doubt some of the lads he talked to exaggerated.

The footage of Conor sparring with paulie will hardly have Floyd sweating too much
Wide round house swinging ,terrible looking technique ,Conor will be taking ten to land one going to be worse than expected I think.

So 8oz gloves have now be approved for the fight. Does this really matter or is it just another slowly drip fed marketing ploy?
That was never a square ball!!

Marketing ploy more than anything I reckon. Mayweather has fought with 8oz gloves plenty of times.

So first we have Mayweather saying he is not the fighteer that he once was, then McGregore knocks 50 shades out of Malignaggi and now they announce 8oz gloves. You would nearly swear that it was a cleverly designed marketing ploy to make people think that McGregor has a chance of winning the fight. A pure pantomime.

Not at 154. 154 and above, 10oz gloves are mandatory. The decision to set that aside is really scandalous and sets a very bad precedent.

I know that but he has still fought plenty of times in 8oz gloves. I couldn't see them passing this in a normal title fight. Pantomime as Yellowcard says.

Dreamt last night that Mayweather knocked him out in the very first flurry.

Then when McGregor got himself gathered they both agreed to go at it again without the gloves, MMA style.

Then I woke up.

Cool story.
Phosporescent!

Wonder what the early PPV figures are like. The stench of farce is getting stronger imo.
