90% of me thinks this will be a walk over for Mayweather.  He can/should be able to dance rings around Mcgregor all night long and not have a glove laid on him.  I do have two questions:

1. Floyd has been out of the ring, is old and is coming back for money.  Never in the history of boxing has this been a successful combination.  For one fight maybe it will be OK though, given the opposition.

2. The Maidana fight.  Maidana was big, crude and didn't give a shit about being hit.  Perhaps there is a blueprint for a big guy with a good chin to walk Floyd down and land a few good ones to the head.  McGregor is bigger than I thought, if he can take a few to land and he has worked on his stamina he has a video to watch and follow thanks to Maidana.

I think all this is grasping at straws in some way.  I think McGregor will come out strong for a round or two, get tagged and stunned a few times and then go into his shell and follow FMJ around the ring like every other slugger ends up doing.

Personally, I hope he comes out all guns blazing, roughs the hell out of FMJ and goes for broke and retires out on his shield.  If Hatton and Maidana can do it there is no excuse for him.

Great analysis...

The other factor is the fight being at 154...he's only fought at that weight twice, Vs De La Hoya and Cotto (I don't include Canelo as that was at a catchweight) and Floyd wasn't at his best in either of those fights...I still think he will win comfortably but I do expect his age (40), layoff (2 years), motivation (purely for money) and weight division (154) to play some kind of factor into his overall performance...this fight is ALL about what Floyd has left

Tbh if McGregor goes the distance he'll be in no worse a position then the likes of Canelo and Pacquiao.

I can see Conor making even more money out of boxing after this fight.

Whts he point in that? Malignaggi wasn't exactly a big draw in his prime. Why would it be any different now he's retired and well over the hill? Surely there's no money in it.

Why anybody would want to watch malignaggi take yet another beating in the ring is beyond me.

Mallignaggi has said the fight can happen if McGregor doesn't look s**t against Floyd. A bit rich from a bloke who just got out classed by Sam eggington

And you'd post on the build up thread for it several times despite declaring it doesn't interest you in the slightest.

I hope you're right... I don't see the logic myself.
