Floyd Mayweather Jr makes easy money in a comeback fight which draws so much attention, fighting a man who hasn't boxed before.

McGregor had promised to knock Mayweather out in 2 rounds, he talked about the all time great, dying in the ring, and all kinds of nonsense, he complained about the weight of the gloves, explaining them to be Mayweather's reason for seeing out the first session, even though they were no heavier than standard boxing gloves which Mayweather had fought with throughout his outstanding career. McGregor had said before the fight, "no one, strikes like me", "I am boxing!", it was big talk from a man who had never fought.

Mayweather showed respect to McGregor throughout much of the build up, explained that he was not an easy opponent, showed a humble side to himself.

The fight started with a laughably relaxed Mayweather walking forward without a care in the world, and McGregor throwing very slow punches at his opponent, landing rarely, with pathetic, weak punches. Mayweather gave up the first round by default, and round 2 was similar, with Mayweather landing very few punches, less than 5, and McGregor, again, throwing, sometimes managing to hit a man who isn't even trying, with slow, awful shots. McGregor looked very tired as he sat heavily on stool after just 2 rounds of what the older man in Mayweather was doing as if it was absolutely nothing, not even looking warmed up.

Round 3 was similar, and Mayweather began to start boxing in round 4, after this round, McGregor was absolutely gassed, and from round 5, to round 9, Mayweather easily walloped, punished a spent, defenceless, powerless McGregor, still not really trying, carrying a very vulnerable opponent through the rounds. Mayweather seemed slightly frustrated, and surprised at his opponent's lack of power, fitness, maybe disappointed for the fans. Mayweather steps it up ever so slightly when he feels McGregor really weakening in round 9, after letting him push out some more comically bad, pathetic little slaps he thought were punches in round 8, Mayweather stops messing around, and starts to punish McGregor, nailing him with shot after shot, giving him a 3 minute beating.

Mayweather beats McGregor effortlessly in round 10, walking forward with the punches, not a lot of commitment to them, and they were still having an affect on McGregor, and Mayweather beats him around the square circle, painfully. McGregor didn't seem to have the courage to make Maywather work even a little bit harder, and instead looked like he was in there just to not quit, and before round 10 would come to a close, Mayweather's beating which was increasing, came to a safe, wise, compassionately decided close as referee Robert Byrd takes McGregor out of his misery, and Mayweather, gets 50th victory, in what was probably easier than every one of his other 49 fights.

Sadly, Mayweather didn't manage to change McGregor's attitude, he didn't humble him, and the 'boxer' insisted after the fight that the stoppage was premature, and the judges were biased, though they gave him all he deserved.

Mayweather tried his best to entertain the fans, give them what he felt they missed out on when his fight against Manny Pacquiao didn't live up to expectations back in May 2015, but he didn't have a dance partner, and he couldn't give us a really entertaining fight, still, Mayweather still lives as a retired boxing legend, who will always be respected, and looked up to by boxing fans all around the world, and Mayweather, well he had certainly earned plenty of $s from this assignment, not undeservingly.

Prediction,

This fight is ridiculous, it is a joke, a circus show, but worth the watch, and this is a business, if people pay to watch it, it won't fail.

I think Floyd Mayweather knows this will be an easy fight, I think he will train hard to not only win, not only win easily, but absolutely dominate and stop Conor McGregor.

Conor McGregor is a tough, brave respect worthy athlete in the sport of UFC, is UFC as good as boxing?, for me?, no way, is that a matter of opinion?, yes, could a UFC fan just as easily say the opposite?, absolutely, are boxing and UFC similar?, no, not at all, I know little about UFC, but I see little about it which is similar to boxing. I think Conor McGregor is deluded, I think he has absolutely no idea how to box at anything like this level, just as Lomackenko, Crawford, would have no idea how to compete in UFC against an opponent who couldn't beat McGregor.

Conor McGregor is not as capable in boxing as Floyd Mayweather Jr, that is a fact, Conor McGregor has never had a boxing fight in his life, and he is going in there against possibly the best boxer who has ever lived. If Conor McGregor is to win this fight, (and I think it is extremely unlikely, and the chance is atom sized), there will have to be some kind of a factor, will Floyd break his hand?, is McGregor planning to negate Mayweather's vision early and test his willingness to fight with one eye?, maybe with a headbutt?, is he under the impression the referee won't disqalify him if he headbutts him once even if it is enough to half blind Mayweather (he's probably right about that)?, does he really believe he can beat Mayweather purely in boxing, man on form against man on form?, is he that deluded?, the fight may be unusual, it may not be the most professional fight, but it is interesting, and love it or loathe it, you're going to watch it.

I think Conor McGregor has a plan, I think he believes he has underrated boxing ability, but I think his plan might well be to commmit an early foul, a foul which will damage Mayweather, enough to damage Mayweather and get to him for the rest of the fight, but I think he's planning a subtle foul, and only one or two maximum, so that the referee doesn't disqualify him but rather just warn him, he might let it get so far as two points being deducted, because as long as we're talking fairly small, everyday fouls, I think the referee has to warn him formally before he disqualifies him. If my theory is right, then I wonder what he is planning, a headbutt?, or elbow, close one of Mayweather's eyes?, he'd lose a point or maybe even two if he did that (I think he'd be apologetic to Floyd and the referee), maybe he doesn't want to damage Mayweather's eye so that under the strong advice of the ringside doctor, the fight ends. Maybe a kick, or knee, he's an MMA fighter, they can kick as hard as heck, and they can knee hard, maybe he wants to give Mayweather a leg injury which is subtle, not broken, not visibly swollen, but agonising, like the injury David Haye sustained against Tony Bellew, maybe he's planning on manhandling him onto the ropes, tying him up, and pulling one of Mayweather's arms out of it's socket. I definitely think there is a possibility that McGregor is planning on an early, fight changing foul, and I think ultimately, he thinks he's good enough to get the better of a Mayweather who is at a severe disadvantage under boxing rules.

I think McGregor will have a problem when his plan fails, and after this has happened, he's going to have a lot of problems, and he's going to start to take a merciless beating. From McGregor's point of view, his plan could work in his favour, I mean, if McGregor gets Floyd in the injured position he wants to get him in, Floyd can't quit or complain after McGregor has been penalised, I mean maybe he's planning on just prioritising cutting the eyes with punches over quality shots and he believes he can find even that level of accuracy, but whatever he does, he thinks he might be able to get Floyd in the horrible position that Vitali Klitschko was in against Chris Byrd, where if he quits, it is down to an injury not caused by the clean offence of his opponents, but the referee will still deem it an RTD of he does so, maybe McGregor thinks Mayweather will quit, maybe he thinks he will just completely make Mayweather's mentality out of control, make him not half the boxer he is, and do what he thinks he can do, and beat Mayweather. I think McGregor's plan will fail, Mayweather will keep in a position in which, if he tries to headbutt him, it will be an obvious headbutt from long range, I think he'll be prepared for dirty fighting from McGregor, and I think he'll frustrate McGregor by not letting him damage him with anything illegal, and when McGregor realises he has to try box Mayweather boxer on boxer, he'll lose confidence, he'll take any chance he has, even if it is one in a billion, but at this point, and I think around about round 3, he'll feel the power of Floyd Mayweather Jr, and Floyd will completely take over, and make it the expected mismatch.

I think Mayweather will box out of character in this fight, I'm 90% sure he's going for the stoppage. I think Mayweather will have fun in this fight, McGregor is hard as nails, but in boxing you need a different sort of toughness, a different type of durability, and when he's hurt, when he needs the basics of defence, he needs his survival instincts, they won't be there, I think Mayweather will hurt McGregor early, I don't think McGregor would quit if someone paid him £100,000,000,000 to do it, but I think Mayweather will want that, he will torture him, I think Mayweather might well fight dirty, I think he will put on a show for the fans, I think he will show everyone power we haven't seen in years, I'll think we will see a macho Floyd Mayweather Jr, he might give McGregor a free shot or two, see it coming and soak it up like a sponge, but ultimately, I see Mayweather brutally, clinically stopping McGregor, I'm going to predict round 7.

I hope this fight is good, because boxing fans deserve that, I hope Conor McGregor's reputation as a fighter and warrior in his own right is only helped, I hope Mayweather gets more credit than he's ever gotten, so he can enjoy the rest of his retirement, and Conor McGregor goes back to UFC, where his greatness and talent lies, safely, and I think he will. I certainly think Floyd should retire permanently after this fight.

If Floyd doesn't stop Conor it will look terrible for boxing.

Second analysis.

I'm interested in this fight, my fascination on McGregor's chances has increased. I believe it is extremely unlikely that McGregor wins this fight, but I'm slightly concerned for Floyd, for mainly the reason that no matter how unlikely McGregor winning is, it isn't impossible, and there is so much at steak here. McGregor is 29, I mean, that is mid prime for a fighter, Floyd, at 41, he is always going to be at a disadvantage, Mayweather giving away reach as well. The age aspect is nothing new, I don't think Floyd has been the younger fighter in a while. The only thing I'm concerned about is McGregor landing with one big shot, because in boxing, anybody can be knocked out, sometimes one shot is all it takes.

I'm probably very paranoid about Mayweather losing this fight, because of how bad for boxing it would be, I hope that the unthinkable doesn't happen, because if it does, then disaster!

I think boxing fans should respect UFC, UFC fans should respect boxing, they should be appreciated on the same level, compared, but UFC is UFC, and boxing is boxing, that is the way it should stay, two different sports, I for one, think I have every right to love one sport, and merely respect but not watch the other.

Interestingly, Ray Mercer, Kimbo Slice, James Toney, Lucas Browne, they are all boxers, and kick boxer, or something similar, Toney and Mercer, are historically great fighters, Mercer was underrated, and these fighters were able to be very good boxers whilst preoccupied with a different sport, but most of these guys did have standard amateur careers, gradual, sensible professional careers, Slice (who sadly passed away last year at the young age of 42, may he rest in peace) was 7-0 in boxing, I think he was predominantly an MMA fighter, but competed as a boxer, whilst Mercer, Toney, Browne, were predominantly boxers, whilst they also competed in other combat sports, so I think the transition from MMA to boxing, would have been something Slice would have known more about. Ray Mercer has said he gives McGregor no chance against Mayweather.

I believe McGregor is the best boxer who has an 0-0 record, amateur or professional, on the planet, he is the most famous fighter in UFC, I think he's the best in that sport, I don't believe McGregor has been boxing for as long as everybody has talked about this fight, I think he's been working on his boxing technique, working the bags, doing pad work, sparring, for years, I think he's done everything but fight officially. I boxed for 4 years, did everything but fight officially, I might go back to boxing, maybe even have a few fights, but I haven't done anything more than shadow box, for a while. If I box in front of the mirror, I can impress people with my hand speed, my footwork is good, my technique, it is clear that I have a fair bit of boxing experience behind me, like McGregor, my amateur record is 0-0, but I know that my record doesn't do me justice, there are guys who have had fights, that I'm confident I could have the beating of, but that only goes so far, and if I was to call out one of the guys I used to sparr, who carried on with boxing, who are probably in the squad, maybe competing for our City, let's say, they have had 30 fights, and I call them out fancying I can beat them, who am I kidding?, I would struggle to believe I could win that. Whilst McGregor knows he has boxed with more interest, realism, motivation, and for longer than people realise, he still has not had an amateur fight, and all the point about McGregor's underrated pre first fight boxing experience proves, is that he is better than some think he is, it doesn't break the barrier between fighting and not fighting, and it doesn't nearly convince me he is in the same class as Mayweather.

Will McGregor's UFC experience help McGregor much? Will it have boosted him as a boxer? Can he use his power as a boxer? Just how much boxing has he done in the past? Has he always had boxing as part of his preparation for his UFC fights? Does McGregor have incredible one punch power?, like Gervonta Davis seems to, like Deontay Wilder, like Earnie Shavers did, like Errol Spence seems to, was that staggering left hand he caught Malignaggi with as good a shot as it looked? What were the circumstances there? Will McGregor's instinct cause his UFC related style tamper with his ability to box? Does McGregor have the basic, defensive instincts to rely on in those seconds when he really needs it? How much will wearing 8oz gloves hold back McGregor and decrease his speed? Does McGregor have the foot speed to get close to Floyd Mayweather? Does McGregor really understand the differences between MMA and boxing?, the differences which aren't as obvious? There are so many questions which add interest to this fight.

I believe McGregor's UFC experience might help him out a little bit, his boosted hand speed, spiteful, hurtful fighting intentions, endurance, ability not to be affected by any facial damage, maybe his ability to use hustle tactics, maybe he will be able to fight dirty and get away with it in order to make the fight suit him more. I don't think McGregor will be great at using his power as a boxer, I've seen him struggle with turning his punches over when he hits the bags, maybe this isn't an issue when he's focused and doesn't want to look like a good boxers until he fights Floyd, but he a boxer who can do well against Mayweather should be well past learning how to turn basic shots over. I don't think McGregor will show himself to be an accurate puncher against Mayweather.

It is unknowable how much boxing experience McGregor has, it is possible he has always used it to help him prepare for UFC, but not something I can say I think is the case or not the case. Malignaggi said he didn't have 'oh my God power', but still was a very heavy handed fighter, I think McGregor is a dangerous puncher, but even without taking his lack of method, experience, technique into consideration, I find it hard to believe that he hits as hard as Adrien Broner, Miguel Berchelt, Mikey Garcia. I think McGregor lost most rounds to a still out of shape, 36 year old Malignaggi, who without any doubt in my mind is still a much better boxer than McGregor, and then when the older fighter tired, he landed with a big left hand, rocked back the head of his sparring partner, it was a great shot, but I think Malignaggi, at 36, can't physically take punishment the way he could have done 4 or more years ago, so McGregor's power shouldn't be compared to other fighters who have hit Malignaggi in the past, and boxers anywhere would make it clear that fighting and sparring are two different things, sparring is one thing, but fighting is another thing entirely. I think when the fight is tentative, about not making a mistake, McGregor's instincts as an MMA fighter will work against him. Mayweather is good at finding gaps in defences, making great fighters look ordinary, nullifying opponents, negating all their strengths, so I think Mayweather will control the pace, make it his kind of fight, capitalised upon even small errors, with ease, early when it is tentative, and I think McGregor not having that boxing experience, coming from a sport, which in this regard, is so different to boxing, as an MMA fighter, McGregor will struggle technically, even more.

I believe when he is hurt, because he hasn't taken the time to devote to boxing because he's been dedicated to a different sport, he won't have adjusted to boxing like experienced or even just professional boxers will have done, the basics, the fundamental defences which he needs, they won't be there, his inexperience will let him down, I think he'll be in more of a position to not see a big shot coming that any of Floyd's previous opponents, and I think, chin down, hands up, everything else, I just think he'll suffer the consequences of not being a real boxer. I don't think McGregor's speed will suffer too much but it isn't going to be what it was when he wore 4oz mitts, I think his foot speed won't prove good enough to get near Floyd. I don't believe McGregor does ultimately understand the more subtle differences between what it is like competing boxing and what it is like competing in MMA.

I don't really care much about the actual fight, but I'm a bit intrigued on everything surrounding it.
I want to go on record that I wouldn't be surprised if Mayweather gets robbed in this fight. McGregor is the younger fighter and he is able to pull the big numbers Mayweather does. There's a perception that decisions in Big Fights at Las Vegas will tilt towards the most profitable fighter.
I initially dismissed Mayweather's 8oz gloves change as just a promotional tactic. Now I'm starting to believe he really doesn't want to take the chance of letting judges pick the winner.

In case anyone cares...This fight is going to be Mayweather vs Guerrero 2

Left Eye's picture

I think this fight will resemble Mayweather/Gatti more than Mayweather/Guerrero - it should anyway.

With regards to Mayweather being robbed: no way.

McGregor outboxing Floyd over 12 rounds is impossible. He has to stop Mayweather if he wants to win.

albertocastany's picture

I'm not implying McGregor would outbox Mayweather. That's just ridiculous. However, if the fight goes the distance, Mayweather may not get a fair shake from Las Vegas' Judges. Mayweather is old and leaving while McGregor is young and staying.
Las Vegas needs McGregor to become a star and keep his business at Las Vegas. There's no better way to catapult him way up than defeating one of the best fighters in History.
It sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory, but never forget that 114-114 card. Never Forget.

oh...and about fight looking like Mayweather/Gatti....I highly doubt it. Gatti was way too passive.

McGregor will assault Mayweather and look aggresively to land his left. Just like Guerrero. This will be Mayweather jumping back and circling outside his opponents left, land right sharpshots, reset and start all over again.

Left Eye's picture

I hope not.

I hated the Guerrero fight, one of Floyd's most underwhelming performances in my opinion.

Also, I'm not sure about McGregor being aggressive.

He is a measured counter-puncher, so unless he drastically changes his style - which he may - I think we'll see a slower paced, more cerebral approach from Conor than many expect.

Mayweather had better win this!! And win big!!

Left Eye's picture

Yep. The sport of boxing is on trial.

Here is a quote taken from an article on the fight that sums up my feelings -

"The disparity in pugilistic pedigree between the pair is so vast and, for that matter, unprecedented at this level, that anything other than the unqualified annihilation of McGregor may be considered an indictment of Mayweather and, by extension, boxing. "

Got a fight recommendation for you, Randy Cabalerro vs Stuart Hall.

Lefty...I got to say no one expected Mayweather fighting like he did. He truly is one of the most complete fighters in history

Ugh here we go, Floyd better not kill the boxing business again, so he better win impressivly. After the fantastic year it has had so far, and still has to come, it doesn't need another Floyd fiasco fight where people shell out 100's if not thousands of dollars for another letdown ****show.

Better win Floyd.

Selena Gomez, in my opinion, is just ever so slightly hotter.

Most American woman are beautiful IMO.

WTF IS happening?! this is not supposed to be happening by mid fight

rorschach's picture

One last FU from Floyd Mayweather to boxing before he walks away forever after making more money in 1 night for a boxing match then anyone ever. Just go away and stay away Floyd, you're a embarasement to the sport, best ever my ass.

Wow...McGregor's degradation by round was dramatic. You had a McGregor landing clean counters while slipping Mayweather's punches early on...and later on it looked like his legs had turned into rubber and barely able to keep himself up.
McGregor doesn't belong in the ring....you need to know how to apply economy in your output. Boxing is just not swinging away.

To me it looked like McTapper won the first 2, the third was debatable, the last 6, all Floyd, I know McQuitter was tapping with shots, but they were all arm punches, Mayweather controlled that fight!

Malignaggi vs McGregor, might be a fight worth watching, so Paulie can show this piece of s*** who's boss.

Floyd Mayweather Jr is the best boxer who has ever lived in my opinion!
Not based on this ridiculous fight, but based on his phenomenal, outstanding 49-0 career, well I guess he is 50-0 now, but Mayweather is the man in boxing.

The problem for old Gregs, was that he thought boxing was for 'pussies', he didn't understand that boxing takes just as much toughness as MMA, he learned a harsh lesson in there tonight.

People call Mayweather a 'coward', well, he took and laughed off everyone of McTapper's punches easily!

Mayweather is a smart man, he took some time away, decided he wanted one more fight, to make the 50-0, and maybe because of the underwhelming Pacquiao fight, and maybe he could do with some money, a fight like this, great hype, a trash talking piece of shit like Conor McGregor, and easy fight, why not? He knows that at 40, he wouldn't beat Crawford, Lomachenko, Garcia, Golovkin, I think Andrade would beat him, even Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter I think might edge him now, he is not the fighter he used to be, but he would have to be 70 before he could lose to a bum like McQuitter.

Mayweather shouldn't keep boxing now, this really should be the end, because if he boxes at the top level, he will lose, simply because he is too old, I highly doubt he will fight against now, and that is the right decision, the man should enjoy his retirement, spend all his time with his family, friends, pursue his career as a promoter, maybe trainer if he wants, he could be a commentator, but he shouldn't box again, anyway, after all the years, I think we can say, thank you Mr Mayweather!

Mayweather vs Cotto
Mayweather vs Maidana
Mayweather vs Castillo
Mayweather vs De La Hoya
Mayweather vs Berto
Mayweather vs McGregor
Mayweather vs Corrales
Mayweather vs Hatton

Were these not all fan friendly fights? Let's all take our hats off to the best in this sport!

In a rematch, I think Mayweather would stop McGregor in 4 or 5 one sided rounds, I think McGregor would land a maximum of 2 pitty pat punches.

Malignaggi, I think either beats McGregor at least 10-2, or manages to stop him late through draining his batteries, making his feet give out.

I think Davis would drill McQuitter in 1 round.

I reckon McGregor vs Salka would be an interesting one, maybe Salka might just edge that one.

I honestly think McGregor would lose to every single other one of Floyd Mayweather's opponents. No gas tank, no power, can't take punishment, no heart, terrible defence, can't move his feet, I'm sorry but this guy is so laughably awful at boxing, that I just can't believe I paid for this sham of a fight, I suppose Mayweather does deserve to be paid for the time he had wasted by McTapper.

Hopefully Nate Diaz kicks the heck out of McGregor in a possible trilogy, and then he loses his comeback fight.

Nothing against UFC, but McGregor is a poobag, White is a poobag, there is a reason why it is not as recognised or as appreciated a sport as boxing, and why 9/10 combat sports fans will say boxing is better.

I was horrified by how Mayweather looked to be honest.

Sluggish, slow and most concerning of all, his timing and accuracy was shocking - even with his vaunted straight right, which used to be like a viper-strike.

I couldn't believe how many times he missed (and missed badly), especially since Conor was not a very elusive target.

He looked his age and most definitely needs to stay retired.

With that being said: this win makes him 50-0 and caps off the greatest career in boxing history.

Regardless of whether you think this was a joke, it was a fight of the magnitude befitting Floyd. He deserved to go out on a high in a memorable match.

It would have been a shame if his last ever outing was that dud against Berto.

Commendable performance from Conor. He did not disgrace himself and deserves a lot of credit.

He is a true fighter.

Champion97's picture

Floyd did deserve to go out on a high.

McGregor can't lace Berto's boots.

Haha, yeah, gassed after 2 rounds, McTapper gets no respect from me.

Who? McQuitter? He's done!

Left Eye's picture

I'd say he gassed after 5 rounds and he staged a rally in the 8th.

Champion97's picture

He gets no credit from me!

Moving on from McQuitter, Golovkin vs Alvarez who you got?

Left Eye's picture

Canelo.

I think GGG's pressure will be his downfall; he'll come forward and Canelo will counter with combinations.

Champion97's picture

I think GGG, well, I'm 51/49 on GGG, I'm thinking an SD.

Yeah I can easily see that. Something I think Canelo gets under credited for is his offence to the body, against Trout, Lara (a massive amount) would have been against Mayweather if he wasn't so inaccurate, against Khan, and Smith, Canelo's work to the body was very effective, I wouldn't be surprised if Canelo stopped Golovkin to the body, but at the same time, I think Canelo has selective defence, I mean that in the sense that he only uses his defence, usually, Toshiba top his opponent landing clean punches and possibly winning rounds, rather than to protect himself, but he has never fought a puncher like Golovkin, and I can see instinctive, safety first defence, and fighting with a little bit of fear, bing something this tough, tough Mexican guy might learn from this fight, I wouldn't be surprised if Golovkin stopped him.

I think Canelo will finish strong, age suits him down to the ground, and he has finished round 12 9 times, Golovkin, once. I do think rounds 6-9, 7-10, that kind of point in the fight, mid to late rounds, Golovkin's natural size will be a big factor, and he will dominate, but I think the faster, younger, probably outright heavier and more muscular fight in Canelo will edge the first 5 or 6 rounds.

Different but not unrelated topic, McQuitter was too much of a wus to get off his cowardly backside and get the miles behind behind him, refused to run, what a fake! He is a terrible boxer as well, not a lot of power, can't translate what power he has, terrible cardio, terrible conditioning, awful defence, very sloppy footwork, he was probably the worst opponent of Mayweather's 48.

Conor McGregor is a pussy.
