Depends on the map, but if I were a betting man I'd put money on the heavy.

May's weather sleeps in august. Sounds dodgy, but kinda makes sense, I guess. Poetic, really.

As someone that spent 10-years wishing Mayweather would be knocked out, he's going to make McGregor look like a mug.

 

I were a betting man; the fight doesn't go beyond the 8th round, Mayweather wins via TKO. McGregor's going to chase a ghost and eat leather all night.

Might finally shut him up, but I wouldn't bet on it.

 

And no I really don't like Mayweather, what gave you the impression I did. :P

Junk fight thats being over-hyped

 

doesn't matter who wins or losses, both will walk out with tons of money.

There is no way McGregor survives 8 rounds. He is not a boxer, period. It requires a completely different skillset from MMA.

Aight, I need to hear from the "Mayweather is a certainty" guys on how it is they can be so sure? Mayweather is not a knock out puncher, he never was and his arms haven't gotten stronger or quicker with age. McGregor has knocked out people, with closed-fist strikes, on multiple occasions in recent years. He's also a Southpaw, which makes it awkward for Mayweather, on top of which he has absolutely no video footage he can watch that will tell him what to anticipate. Floyd adjusts quickly but that is based on patterns and styles he has sparred through in training camp. He doesn't just make it all up on the spot and has said as much many times.

 

Does this mean McGregor can dominate him in a boxing match? No, it doesn't, Floyd will find the adjustment eventually and become very, very hard to hit. But will that take 3 rounds? Or 4 maybe? McGregor has won an awful out of fights through striking in that amount of time and he will move in a way the Floyd will find hard to anticipate right out of the gate. I think a lot of people just don't want McGregor to be able to change sports and beat a former champ because of how that diminishes the sport overall. Which isn't a very clinical way of looking at the match-up.

 

All that aside, what I actually hope happens is that Maywaether does frustrate McGregor, to the extent that the fight ends with Mayweather on the ground asleep after a spinning kick to the back of his head. McGregor would forfeit his purse (and his boxing licence) for that, but he'd keep the pay-per-view cut, which will be the vast majority of the revenue in this fight anyway. I think I'd enjoy that very much indeed.

The difference is that Mayweather has spent probably 30 years training only boxing, while Mcgregor has trained MMA which includes kicks, knees, elbows, takedowns and the whole ground game on top of boxing. It is for the sake of the argument a completely different sport. The only thing Mcgregor has over Mayweather is youth and size. In terms of his chances he has no more than a punchers chance. I'd like Mcgregor to win, because its would be funny as [edited]but realistically he wont. 

 

He also won't do anything like kicking him, not only would he forfeit the purse, he'd get sued by Floyd and not to mention the fact that it was his choice to go box him.

Both are jerks, whoever gets KOd is a bonus. Irish dude is the underdog, I would be 1£ on him... just in case I win 40 afterwards. You never know, every dog has its day.

These people already know who will win.  It is no less fixed than wrestling.

Not sure how this pertains to game play. I do find it surprising that, so-called intelligent people find beating 7 sorts of poop out of each other entertaining.

Good morning guys.

Of course I will watch this match too. However game play section is not for that.
