    Conor literally doesn't even have a punching chance.

    You will all find out how SLOW Connor is going to look if he fights Floyd. He is going to be swinging at thin air. The speed different is massive

    You know i actually think this fight is important educationally for some young MMA fans who have absolutely no clue whatsoever how refined the skill of an elite level professional boxer has to be. When Conor goes in there and literally looks like some random guy they brought in from the street who has no idea what he is doing, they will begin to understand.

    I keep hearing some people say Mayweather hasnt knocked "anybody" out in a long time. But who is "anybody"? "Anybody" refers to the best boxers on the face of the Earth (because that is who Floyd's competition is). So you are basically asking: If Floyd hasn't Koed any of the most elite professional boxers on the planet in years, how is he going to Ko an amateur boxer who is popular for doing MMA?" The answer is simple. If Floyd can Ko elite boxers 53% of the time, and most of the rest of the time hit them 400 times in a single match, he will literally be able to hit McGregor at will, and there is only so much punishment that any human body can take. That combined with the sheer exhaustion of swinging at air (which is more tiring than actually landing) and the sheer length of Boxing matches makes survival to the end very very unlikely for McGregor .

    Floyd has the boxing defense down to a science and never takes any risk. Its like trying to hit a moving bullseye.

    Cant stand his style...hope Conor catches him.

    Yup, you're just about the only one. Floyd won't even be hit.

    Also, Floyd is no where near the best boxer of all time and it's not arguable.

    i disagree in that he fought the best boxers in the world especially the ones he DID fight were out of their prime while he was in his.

    thats the point if anyone read what i wrote past the title. Made the point that the fact he is not your traditional boxer this will be the first style the 40 year old Floyd hasn't fought before, whether its effective or not, he will be fighting against Conors style of fighting and its the first time Floyd will have to deal with it, can he? Will Floyd even take this serious and make a mistake by not doing so.

    Um no I'm sure there are other ppl out that are misleading themselves into thinking Conor has a chance for whatever reason.

    You see, when you start dropping lines like Mayweather is maybe "the best ever" I just have to stop reading. You have to be below the age of 30 to think he's anywhere close to being the best ever.

    It's hilarious that anyone would consider Floyd the greatest ever. Could you imagine him against Tommy Hearns? Floyd would be sleeping in the first round. The fact is that the quality of boxers today is very low. Conor will prove that when he embarrasses Mayweather.

    I am a Conor McGregor fan and I think Floyd have fought bigger, stronger, faster, more powerful and more technical fighters than Conor before, and made it look easy so, I dont think Conor has a chance at all

    We dont even know if the kind of power Conor generates on MMA gloves translates to boxing at all.

    But I am still watching that fight and rooting for McGregor

    I just want everyone to think about this real quick...

    So you're telling me that a guy who has gotten caught by a Diaz brother, tends to fade in 3 rounds of a fight, and isn't a professional boxer at all is somehow going to not only stop but some people think KO one of the greatest boxers of all time?

    49 other PROFESSIONAL boxers have tried and FAILED, yet your great MMA hope is going to get it done??? Stop it. Just stop it.
