    CoGar has a legit 30-1 amateur boxing record, whereas Conor's record is no where to be found. He is also extremely athletic and explosive with amazing cardio and conditioning, his hooks are fast and sharp making him kinda look like Marcos Maidana. Cody has exact the brawler style that gives Floyd trouble.

    As a boxer, Conor only has a counter left hand, Floyd will easily neutralize it with his world-class jab, Conor will eventually gas and be finished. It is not an interesting matchup at all.

    CoGar would make Floyd rely on his speed and reflexes which should be fading at 40 years old, definetly a bad matchup. IMO he should be the face of MMA against boxing

    Conor holds way more of a size advantage over Brimage than Cody.

    Continue with that whole size thing, which is one of the only real reasons you'd ever pick an mma fighter over a world class boxer in boxing.

    Bob Sapp destroyed Ernesto Hoost, it's not exactly the same or even close, but follow the logic.

    Are we doing MMAth with rounds now? And I'm talking about raw boxing skills. As far as I'm concerned Conor doesn't have one single ammy fight

    Irish boxing>>>>>>>>>>>>>Ohio boxing.

    People should really look up who first taught Conor boxing (3 time Olympian Phil Sutcliffe) and who he used to spar with, guys that are Olympians and pros. Boxing is to Ireland what wrestling is to someplace like Iowa or Sambo is to Dagestan. Going 30-1 in the Ohio amateur circuit is like going 16-15 on the local Irish circuit.

    If it's that much better I assume they could meet at FW and it would be an easy win for Cody?

    Conor's the best striker in mma history and the best boxer coming out of the ufc.

    It would look stupid with the 20lb weight advantage to make it last a fight.
