Boxing Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Date: August 26th, 2017
Venue: T Mobile Arena, Las Vegas
Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0): -550 vs. Conor McGregor (0-0): +375
It’s a middleweight boxing bout at 154 that took months to get agreed on, but will make both fighters that much richer, no matter the outcome.
Some experts are projecting that both McGregor and Mayweather will bring in close to 100 million dollars for this fight.
Floyd Mayweather brings in a perfect 49-0 record and is one of the best boxers ever. He is a magician in the ring that uses a very defensive style to fighting. He dances around the ring, and doesn’t let his opponent land many shots.
He might be the smartest boxer ever in terms of how to wear down an opponent in 12 rounds, and still not take very much damage.
A lot of people say that is not a great way to fight, and is not exciting as the likes of Mike Tyson, but he is 49-0 for a reason. I am sure in this fight he will try to wear out McGregor early.
McGregor is used to knocking people out early, so he is going to have to have some incredible stamina to go 12 with the champ.
Conor McGregor is the most exciting fighting in the MMA. But it might not just stay in the MMA, some might argue he is the most popular athlete in the world right now. People like him not for just what he does in the right, but also his show tactics outside of the octagon.
He can trash talk with the best of them, and him and Mayweather have already had words. McGregor has one of the deadliest left hands that anyone has ever seen. He knocked out the likes of Jose Aldo in 13 seconds because of how powerful that left hand is.
There are two questions facing McGregor in this fight, how will he react to not being able to use his feet, and does he have the stamina to go 12 rounds in the right.
It’s a whole different game stepping out of the octagon, and into the ring. McGregor has only been boxing for a few months going into this and Mayweather has been his whole life.
McGregor is also going to need to have some incredible training coming into this to go the distance. In every fight that has gone more then a round he has had issues with stamina, and if he has those issues in this fight, it will be over quick.
Boxing Betting: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr.
This boxing match is all going to come down to how McGregor will handle the ring. I don’t think he will handle it well. The best part of this fight will be all before they even step in the ring. The lead up will be a lot of fun though.
Boxing Betting Pick: Floyd Mayweather Jr. -550
Once they step in the ring though, it will be all a Mayweather show.
