Conor vs. Floyd
« on: June 14, 2017, 07:59:18 AM »
Is happening. When Floyd knocks him out in four rounds or less I await the reactions.

Knowing little about boxing, I'll bite- Conor has shown a tremendous chin in a sport with smaller gloves and Floyd hasn't finished anybody since Ricky Hatton in 2007 and hasn't fought since September of 2015. Why will he finish Conor?

He's painfully slow whenever they have shown his clips training and gets lit up by people not as talented as Floyd in nearly all of the ones I have seen.

Conor is the guy in this video getting hit all the time and missing every punch, against a gatekeeper.

The simplest way of putting it is that Floyd has been boxing since he was a small child and has refined his skills to perfection. Boxers are also trained to hit people exactly on their chin and eyes. They don't land glancing shots, and that's especially the case with Floyd Mayweather. Floyd is also the fastest and most skilled guy in combat sports even at his age. Anything Conor throws out there will get countered with a perfect shot he won't see coming. Conor's offensive skill and punching technique would probably be top 50 in whatever boxing weight class he decided to be in.

It'll be like Ray Mercer vs. Tim Sylvia. Now keep in mind, Ray Mercer had not knocked out a quality boxer in 16 years prior to fighting Tim Sylvia. Also keep in mind that Tim Sylvia had never been knocked out. Nate Diaz is an extremely sloppy boxer in terms of the sport of boxing and wouldn't do anything in the sport, but he stunned Conor McGregor. Now just imagine what happens when Conor gets hit like this.



And it probably will be worse because Gatti had good boxing skill, had a lot better chin, and was an all-timer in terms of handling punishment. Also, against guys with slow boxing skill, Floyd literally does not get hit in the head. That Floyd didn't knock out anyone after Victor Ortiz is merely a matter of having fought guys who don't get stopped.

For the record I am certain Floyd wins.

Though for the record I am rooting for Conor because I want old-school boxing fans to lose it.

I'm rooting for neither. This is a total sham that will steal money from working class people to watch a non-contest, enriching one person who knows they can't win, and one who knows they can't lose.

I'm not a Mayweather fan, but Floyd is one of the greatest boxers ever and Conor isn't a boxer at all. The movement in boxing is very different than it is in mma. Conor will net a fortune and get embarrassed in the process.

I like both sports.

As such, I don't want to see anyone go into one of these sports with no training background in it and win.

The real winners will be the fighters and the promoters taking their cuts.

The only reason McGregor is fighting Mayweather is because he's avoiding Punk.

I think the bigger question is, does Connor ever fight MMA again after this pay day?  It's pretty clear he is just conning his own fans into making him filthy rich.   

Even in some bizzaro world where Connor has a chance for an upset, there is STILL no reason to believe it will be possible.  What in the world are they going to use to promote the lead up to this?  They certainly can't show him getting walloped by Nate Diaz's "mma boxing?"  Oh, maybe they can show his sparring sessions where he is getting tagged up and down the ring?  I am sure his shit-talking will be on point, but besides that I just don't get the general interest in this other than the freak show factor.

McGregor has positioned himself in a win-win situation.  When he loses, no one with half a brain will have expected anything otherwise.  If Connor wins...........*cough*......then he goes down as an all time legend in sports history.

Now let's talk strategy.  I see only two ways Connor can approach the fight:

A) Go straight HAM on Mayweather until Connor gasses out.  Make every attempt to hit back him up by bull-rushing and put leather on him early.  Of course, if this happens, Mayweather is likely to KO Connor with some timely placed counter punches that Connor never sees coming.  So bad idea.

B) Connor approaches this like he's there to box and gets absolutely schooled over the course of 12 rounds unless he gasses much sooner and can't stand up any longer.  Not a good idea.

So yeah.....

I am one of those people that know this fight is a sham but will be watching it, however I will not be spending money. Dadaramu has a friend that orders every Floyd fight and has people over to watch it free of charge. He likes to throw parties for boxing matches. So I'll probably just go over there and drink free beer, eat free food and watch it for free.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

I love that people wanted Floyd to fight GGG. "I'm retired." But the chance to box someone that's not a boxer and he's in.

Right and it's a shame too, because McGregor is a legitimate MMA fighter, but this isn't like say Anderson Silva in his prime trying his hand at boxing.  McGregor is legit, but he isn't an all-time legend to where he carries the weight to "represent MMA" except to casual fans. This is just a good MMA fighter who has been incredibly media/promotion savvy which has elevated his status into the greatest pay day ever.

This fight will be hyped so crazily that it is going to bring in so many casual fans that know nothing about either sport but are being promised the "biggest fight of your life time/all time" but they will have little to no reference to what is actually going on here, so when they fight happens and on one hand you have a an all-time boxer who's style already isn't appreciated by a lot of people vs. a guy who isn't a boxer........you are going to have people extremely pissed off, probably mad at both sports, but even more so will look at McGregor's performance as some kind of commentary on MMA fighters as a whole.

I haven't watched a ton of Dana's interviews but the one I did see you can tell even he is really hesitant to say too much.  He pretty much lays out that he never really wanted the fight to happen for a long time, and that people showing interest is what swayed him.  I'd probably guess it had more to do with the numbers he saw written on a piece of paper.

When asked to analyze the actual fight the best he could come up with was "One thing we know, Connor is a knockout artist, he will come to the fight trying to knock Mayweather out"

I am very curious what that number was that was put in front of Dana, because I agree that the UFC brand has a lot to lose out of this. First if Conor gets even a bigger payday than he thinks he will it diminishes his chances of fighting in the UFC again (I think he will). And if he gets thoroughly embarrassed by Floyd I think it could hurt the UFC in future buy rates in Mac fights.

Yup. A month prior to this is Jones/Cormier II which mma fans should care about infinitely more then Conor/Floyd. We'll see how much PR the UFC does for it but I can't imagine much, they'll have blown through their budget putting everything behind Conor.

What pisses me off the most is that this carnival attraction is going to generate more money than cards with infinitely more interesting bouts (like the aforementioned Jones/Cormier II) that my friend has no interest in getting.  Name recognition goes a long way, I guess.  Just an excuse to throw a party.

Jesus, if Conor made $25M it was worth it, if he gets close to 100 kudos to him.
