    The Toronto press con was awesome. They know how to sell this shit because right now they've managed to make me hyped for this fight. However, i know this will be boring as hell with Floyd doing the same shit of running away through out the entire match.

    I do want Mayweather to win this regardless of me having such hatred for him because of being the embodiment of the corruption of Boxing, but he just managed to sell himself as the face for this fight.

    This is not a fight to take seriously, it's just a show. Expect it to be more of a wrestling-style thing where Mayweather will probably let McGregor shine a bit on the early rounds so he doesn't embarass himself and it looks like an actual fight only for things to be put in place as the fight goes on.

    McGregor really has zero chances of winning. He's not a boxing specialist, and if actual good boxing pros like Maidana, Pacquiao or Canelo couldn't win, then what's left for a non-boxer like him.

    Maybe they continue the charade afterwards with an MMA rematch or something just as ridiculous as this.

    It's this shit that got me crackin the most



    I felt so bad for Floyd. He was def getting bullied in the trash talking. It's so bad that you end up siding with Floyd and hoping he will fuck the white boy up. I certainly think that Floyd should not have let his daughter come on stage just to watch and hear all that profanity and watching her dad getting bullied like that, but that's just me. The amount of sympathy i had with Floyd was almost the same with sympathy i had with Roman Reigns during the Raw after Wrestlemania 33.

    I wonder if Conor has been working clinching techniques when he gets hit with a clean shot. I hope he isn't just working on offense.

    I can't remember the Floyd fight when he waited until the last minute for other fighter to wrap his hands and put on his gloves, then he sent Leonard to go inspect them. It caused a small fiasco. They were late ass hell, it was way over the time allowed. Leonard showed up and said "I didn't see nothing, you guys got to do that again." It was funny for me, but if I was fighting - I would be pissed off. If Floyd pull these type of shenanigans lol, it may be worth paying for. I can only imagine how Dana White and Conor would react to stuff like this.

    It was the Maidana fight I believe... Floyd was straight fucking with him.

    I also don't believe for 1 iota of a second Floyd is going to fight with smaller gloves. No way.

    He mentioned something about dancing monkeys in Rockey 3 as well to one of those TMZ type outlets. I think he intended for it to be racist. That's not to say he is racist, he's just stirring controversy. Leonardo DiCaprio isn't racist because of Django, it's just an act.

    MMA fighters spend a lot of time working on clinches. Obviously in MMA you can strike in them and look for takedowns so it's different but Muay Thai and clinch fighting is bnb type stuff for MMA.

    I've got a feeling on the whole offence thing that's exactly what Conor is going to do. He doesn't respect Floyd, he's not scared of the knockout as he hasn't knocked anyone out in years and Conor has shown he can take a punishment from bigger guys with smaller gloves. Conor is more likely than not going to try go out there and brawl with him and go to war.

    There are a lot of folks who had the all out war gameplan against Floyd. Things change when you get punched in the face.

    I'm sure hatton, pacman or maidana thought they could outbox Floyd nor did they fear his power.

    aside from Hatton, neither Pac or Maidana looked hurt or scared at all in the fight. Floyd fought like DLH against Trinidad in those two fights, there was nothing he did that made any impact on them, they were not prepared to chase his ass all around the fight because in boxing doing that actually awards the aggressor.

    Chad Mendez had him on his back pumelling him and he just talked shit, stood up and knocked him out. McGregor is tough. His boxing skills are questionable but he's not someone that's going to be deterred by a few hits. He's in his prime, he comes from a sport where he eats elbows and kicks to the head. He's going to be dangerous because he's not a boxer.

    Conor going to pro boxing is gonna be the same as when CM Punk went to pro MMA. Just you watch. Conor gonna get sonned.

    I don't like mayweather that match and most of the time root for mayweather to lose but against conor.... I wish he beats him in Round 1.

    Punk wasn't​ in his prime and went from fake sports to real sports. Conor is the world champion in MMA and has an amateur boxing background. Again, Mayweather will more than likely win but I don't expect it to be a no-show like Punk was.

    I'm not sure some of these commentators really know who McGregor is. The character he puts on.

    He told a German opponent "kiss my feet Nazi," got fined for it and turned around and said something like Ich Bin Sowwy now about those feet.

    He called Nate Diaz a Cholo gangbanger, which he basically is but still.

    He told Jose Aldo he'd turn his favela into a Reebok sweatshop.

    McGregor gives zero fucks which is why people love him but he says a LOT of outlandish shit. I just view him as a movie character.

    I honestly found the whole "racist" shit that Mayweather is pointing out to be completely hypocritical.

    Floyd and Mcgregor sharing the same private jet...?

    Edit: Fighting Floyd is every athletes/fighters dream. Honestly, if i was a pro fighter why on earth would i want to fight anybody else other than Floyd? If i fight against someone else, there is a chance that after the fight i will have some bruises and other levels of damage to my body and face (win or lose) while getting at best 10-30 million for it.

    If it's Floyd, i will make about 80-200 Million with out even getting a single scratch on me. i'd be ok with losing because i just got rich and i can leave the arena so healthy that i wouldn't even need a band aid on me. That is like the easiest way to full on retirement with millions at a young age for any athlete.

    Sure, it hurts the viewers more since they paid 100+$ for the PPV, while those at the arena spent 500-10,000 for the Ticket.. but hey, most of them are likely Floyd fans and getting ripped off is something they fanboy over anyway.

    So who do you want to win? A racist or a wife beater...


    On another note. I can see Mayweather sandbagging and lose on a decision after the final round just because of the big money a rematch would bring. If Mayweather wins, then everyone would be like, "oh this is boring, we all knew he would win" and Mayweather fights become stale

    McGregor is a pretty different people in some interviews. He puts on a character like WWE to sell his brand. It's marketing.

    Did the Media forget about Mayweather's racist video against Pacquiao? You can see how retarded the whole race card is here in America, especially with blacks. A black man can make a tape and spam all forms of racist remarks at point blank such as "I'll make that mother fucker cook me a sushi and rice with dog" but it isn't going to be shot down as racist as a white guy saying "son" to a black guy.

    I've heard many black fighters and other fighters call their opponents "boy", what's the big deal? Now, we have another word that only we can use? So Conor's "open to interpretation" lines makes him a racist but that whole "Poochiyao" shit that Floyd said isn't? Oh wait.. he's black, he can't be racist. Da fuck is that?

    I mean, they're focusing on McGregor saying shit that is not racist at all. If they're going to be all butthurt about everything, might as well be consistent. That's asking a lot though.

    as someone who lives in boston while a lot of people identify with their irish roots here. its true in general irish americans go hard for their culture. basically look to any city with a st.patricks day parade of any notable size.
