Haven't been on ISG for a while so apologies if there is already a thread on this.
 
Anybody going to fork out $59.95 to watch this spectacle? What's your prediction for the outcome?
 
I think this fight could go either way in a spectacular fashion. On paper Floyd should win easily. Love him or hate him he is one of the best defensive boxers of all time - his record of 49-0 (50-0 if you include his wife) speaks for itself. On the other hand McGregor has never fought a pro boxing match but could still land an early haymaker for a shock victory. This would probably be his plan - come out swinging wildly hoping for an early ko.
Floyd on the other hand will try to weather the early McGregor storm and hope that by round 4 McGregor will have run out of gas after which Floyd will land his jabs at will until the ref calls tko.

I'm expecting exactly what you predict
And I predict no lucky punch will land - McGregpr won't be the first with that strategy and it hasn't worked before

Only real chance is if Mayweather's break had cost him his edge

8 Oz gloves may help McGregor's cause, but it's hard to see Mayweather's vast experience not being a deciding factor.

Mayweather to win on points in a snore-fest of technical boxing where he dances around Mcgregor for the whole fight making him look like a chump ....in other words a pretty standard Mayweather fight ....

I think this will be way it goes.

I want to see Connor towel him up inside the first

All depends on where the money is. Just like the UFC chick losing in Melbourne. If the money is on, the result will match. Can you imagine what it would mean to the UFC franchise if Mayweather takes a dive. They could pay him $100m and still make 10 times that amount.

If McGregor looks like a buffoon in a pub fight the UFC image will be tarnished.

Who are you backing, Mouldy?      I need to know before I part with my money on the other competitor.

For lack of anything else to do I will tip Mayweather with a rematch likely in 2018. I think it will be TKO 7th rd.

McGregor inside 3 rounds. He couldn't last any longer. Has to bustle Mayweather into the corner then hit him with everything. He'll cop a warning or two from the referee for using his elbows or whatever to soften him up.

The fix has to be on.
