    you guys are discussing this as if connor and floyd are equal athletes lol

    you guys probably think the best street basketball player is as talented as an NBA player lol

    god some of you clowns are retarded

    connor has never faced anyone as fast floyd ever

    the sheer difference in athletic ability alone puts connor on the back foot lol

    You can watch it as long as you want but it won't matter if you dont know what you are watching or why they are doing it.

    That must explain your lack of a counter argument.

    I might throw 100 bucks on Conor, have no confidence he will win but it's still a relative mystery what Conor looks like in pure boxing.

    Yes, that's exactly what it means. It's like saying that Floyd might be worried about Conor kicking him in the balls because he wants to "cheap shot" him. You are an absolute moron for giving this "theory" any credence whatsoever. And the fact that there have been other people saying this should prove to most intelligent people how delusional the people who think Conor can/will win are.

    Different rules, different gloves, different footwear, different ring layout - he will do about as well in boxing as Michael Jordan did at baseball.

    Conor fans refuse to see alot of the VERY important details here... Gloves are one of them... He's gonna lose hand speed, power and drain faster because of the bigger gloves... He's gonna struggle to connect because he has never fought someone with the footwork and movement Floyd has, and Conor has never fought a competitive boxer in just boxing... the movement is worlds apart when you don't have to worry about kicks, knees, elbows, takedowns or clinches... His fans seem to think that the sports translate... they do, but EXTREMELY loosely...

    I give Conor zero chance of winning... I think its going to be an accomplishment if Conor can even land clean on Floyd... And I don't like him or Floyd.

    One thing I haven't heard anybody mention is , say mcgregor does drop floyd than what ? Floyd gets a standing 8 count to recover . So McGregor actually has to drop him 3 times in 1 round or clean KO him . I'm not liking those odds

    Conor has no chance outside of a shot-from-the-heavens, perfect punch. I'm a long time boxing fan, before I got into MMA, I'm a Conor fan also -- I'm telling you, he has next to 0 chance. Conor is a really good boxer by MMA standards, but MMA fighters boxing is generally basic. There are so many nuances to boxing that you don't see in MMA. Conor's got a good left hand, and he has pretty admirable timing with that hand, but he has little else that I've seen. He can't fight on the inside, he hardly uses his right hand. He also seems to have a limited gas tank, and boxing is an endurance sport.
    Most top level boxers have 30-50 pro fights, and many have amateur experience. If this fight goes through, Conor will get completely embarrassed, and it's a bit of a shame. Floyd is licking his lips at the prospect of this fight, because it'll be the easiest 100 million he's ever earned.

    Probably, even with a size advantage I doubt it would make much of a difference.

    Canelo Alvarez is roughly the same size and reckon hits a lot harder and couldn't even faze Floyd at all.

    Conor is in this for a huge payday, I'd give him close to 0 chance of winning.

    I think they will somehow make it look close to have a reason for a rematch

    Then you should place bet at 6-1 odds, why not?

    That would be money in their faces. Having three entertaining fights, with those two characters, they could make like a billion dollars each. That would be some pimp juice.
