will agree with this post, good stuff.
If you put Conor in Boxing against guys he can beat, he would make pennies. Its like how Kimbo was one of the top draws in MMA, but no one gave a fuck when he went to boxing to fight bumbs. Only way Conor makes money in Boxing is if he goes against guys that would give him brain damage
I would love to see conor vs pacquiao in a boxing sparring match
Conors power is overrated he has sloppy opponents in ufc but when he fought a top level boxer his punches looked sloppy not crispy and he was throwing all his weight and couldnt hurt a 40 year old floyd who barely weighed 148 on fight night, while conor weighed 170 when he fought floyd.
Pacquiao would startch conor so nasty, even conor knows this, if they boxed it wouldnt be pretty, pacquiao would light conor up down the middle, conor fights with his chin open and his guard down.
I'm not saying the guy doesn't hit hard but saying "tell that to every fighter Conor has KOed stiff" then following that with a list of names that only has 1 guy that was "KOed stiff" looks pretty dumb.
You wanna see what KOed stiff looks like look up JMM vs Manny 4, or Fransis vs Reem, Rumble vs everyone but DC, Mark Hunt fights. Conor has "KOed stiff" exactly 1 guy in the UFC, why do people keep saying this?
Here is the video of Floyds close personal bodyguard telling fight hype that Floyd revealed to him that Pacquiao hit him the hardest
SHANE MOSLEY: "PACQUIAO, HE JUST TOUCHES YOU AND YOU'RE ALREADY WOBBLING"
"Pacquiao has some pretty good punching power. He has some different hitting power. He's not physically strong, but he hits pretty good, like he has a good snap or something. He's got something in his hands where he just, pop, and you can wobble. He can hurt you...I don't know how he throws his punches, but he does something where when he lands, it has a different impact. I mean, I get hit by, even now, I get hit by bigger guys all the time and there's no dazing, I don't wobble, I don't do any of that stuff. I don't feel like I'm getting ready to wobble or anything. With Pacquiao, he just touches you and you're already wobbling. It's not like he's heavy-handed. He's not heavy-handed. It's weird. It's the weirdest thing," stated former welterweight champion Shane Mosley, who spoke more about the experience of facing Manny Pacquiao. Check out what else Mosley had to say as he discusses Pacquiao's strengths, sheds light on his game plan going into the fight, and much more.
Pac man probably does hit harder than Conor. He is known for his power. Conor has knocked out 1 guy w 1 punch kinda..as he hit aldo running forward and even then aldo was conscious and got tagged 2 more times on ground. People saying Conor is super powerful are nuts. He uses angles and precision as his main tools not power. Sure he hits hard w the left, but its not like he knocks people unconscious w his super human power.
I don't think so either.
I'm sure most elite Atomweights punch harder than Colin. His punches against Floyd look like how a Atomweight punches, but not a elite one, a journeyman atomweight..
Yes yet's listen to Floyd the same guy who called Gatti a bum yet begged HBO for the fight.
What's dumb is that TS had to evem make this thread.
What's dumber is that we have Conor nuthuggers trying to argue that Conor actually hits harder.
conor has stopped more people in the first round than mark hunt or pretty much every fighter. so while conor may not have the 1 punch ko power as hunt, he's pretty close...I have seen conor hurt guys badly, with grazing shots.
Manny doesn't have to train grappling, kicking or touch-butt. It makes sense Manny hits harder when all he does is train his hands.
Power close to Hunt? Don’t be ridiculous.
I meant in regards to his weight class...of course...not power vs power...but relative to their weight class...
You really need to watch his fights in cage warriors...he has numerous 1 punch ko's...remember, finishing a guy off on the ground with follow up strikes is still pretty much a 1 punch ko...how often do you see the ref stop a fight based off of one punch..it happens rarely...you almost always have to follow up with ground and pound to finish a guy.
I figured that but still, that seems absurd to me. Who has more KO’s? Hunt by a wide margin.
It is true Conors power is overrated, you cant hide behind the boxing gloves, a lot of pro boxers with power knock guys out with those gloves. If Conor had real power he would have iced Floyd with how many free shots Floyd gave him. Floyd NEVER gives boxers free shots like that, because he knows the ones who have power and who dont and once he tasted Conors punch he knew this guy cant hurt me is that all?
He outweighed Floyd big time and still couldn't hurt him, and Floyd fought him non defensive so there would be no excuse
he basically took Conors morale.
A lot of the conor fans said Floyd will run, but Floyd fought the opposite of how he usually fights he just walked Conor down letting Conor tee off on him and gave Conor every opportunity to knock him out, and Conor couldn't do a dam thing
Imagine if Floyd fought Pacquiao the way he fought Conor with a lazy defense sticking his tongue out slowly walking forward letting Pacquiao hit him, Floyd would be knocked out and battered.
Floyd didn't respect Conor at all, but some people act like its a moral victory how? when a 148 pound 40 year old boxer not known for his aggression and typically defensive carried you and let you hit him.
Pacman is way smaller than Conor yet he can drop much bigger dudes like this who are going backward, Conors only vicious KO came when the guy ran into his punch
