For months, we’ve heard talk of Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor. Floyd respects Conor and wants to fight him. Conor would do anything if it made him money. Frankly I don’t give a damn if the fight ever happens I’m just tired of hearing about it.
If this fight ever does happen it’s not going to be exciting. No fight of Floyd’s ever is. There are only one of two outcomes possible. The first is it will be a typical Floyd fight that he just surgically picks apart his opponent making them look inferior. The other alternative is Conor is so outmatched and so out classed that Floyd knocks him out quickly.
Conor will not win this match. He will not even look good. You are talking about an MMA fighter against arguably the greatest boxer of all time. Sure, Conor could get lucky and land a solid punch I guess but I really don’t see it happening.
Are you really going to pay $60 or more to see a boring Floyd Mayweather boxing match again? I damn sure will not be.
There is only way this interests me and it has nothing to do with boxing. It has to do with the business aspect of this match. It also has to do with how much of a genius Conor McGregor is.
Here is a guy that 3 years ago, was a very little known up and coming MMA fighter. Now he has become a transcendent star in the world of MMA and is close to locking down a fight with Floyd Mayweather. Who gives a crap whether he can box he is that big of a star that people want to see him cross over.
No one sells a fight like Conor McGregor. Conor McGregor could make me want to watch him find a freaking brick wall he talks such a good game.
So, props to Conor McGregor for getting the attention of Floyd Mayweather and making him want to box. Props to Conor McGregor for setting himself for a potentially massive pay day. Other than that, I don’t care. I’m tired of hearing about it and I don’t give a damn about watching it.
