Except Conor isn't all hype like Naz was.
He was in prison for a while. Don't know if you knew that. Crashed into someone's car and killed them or something if I recall correctly.
Ok, he didn't kill him but came close to it affording to wiki.
Please enlighten us all on how Ali was "scummy".
I think when they compare mcgregor to Ali is the way both fighters talk shit to the opponents. Because I can't imagine how the hell they would compare mcgregor to Ali's boxing , when mcgregor hasn't boxed no top level fighter
How can you say that when they just went to 4 cities in 3 different countries and people were supporting him religiously everywhere? You're crazy, or misinformed, if you think Ali was as beloved during his fighting career. Particularly at age 29.
Boxing was on primetime network television, and Don King promoted fights in Africa, and there was a war going on that Ali refused to fight in.
Conor has social media, 24 hour sports news networks and publications, exposure from his own outlets(Youtube channels, etc), and appearances in things like Call of Duty and Game of Thrones.
It's a different world, but the influence is at least comparable. And I would say Conor's is bigger when looking at them both at age 29. Which was when Ali first fought Frazier, and over half the people still saw him as the bad guy.
shit on frazier for a long time, called him uncle tom, his kids were bullied in school and he never even apologized to the guy. and this while frazier actually helped ali at some point in his career
Fucking kill yourself. IDGAF if I get dubs.
Sit in the tub and slit your wrists both ways just to make sure you don't fuck it up.
Naz beat some pretty damn good fighters
ali was definitely a pos person in his younger days. but he was able to reform himself though
i guess i can see the comparison...except naz was way faster, hit way harder, and had 1000x the head movement that conor does
Naseem was being compared to Ali when he was on the come up as well. At this point, Conor is also more successful and popular than Naseem. So basically, what you're doing is visualizing what you want to happen to Conor. It would get you off to see him lose embarassingly, then quit the sport.
he already lost embarrassingly, so what's left for him is to quit the sport? but then again, he's now a boxer and no ones knows if he will come back, so I guess he effectively quit the sport, also?
Nas didn't retire after his loss to Barrera...
Stop playing dumb. Was his last MMA fight the loss to Diaz? Are you trying to argue that his most recent win wasn't arguably the best of his career?
Not like Ali, he's healthy and alive.
Barrera took his soul
Conor is more like Ali Mohamed Abdul Hussein from Syria then Ali or Naz. Those guys defended belts.
I'm trying to argue that he already lost embarrassingly (well, 3 times already, but one recently). and he did
