Mayweather vs McGregor

Finally the money fight is here, for better or for worse, whether you care for it or not at all. The talk about this potential mega fight with two stars from different promotions to step foot in the same ring seemed comical, but fast forward one year later here we are. Regardless of how much you may kick the thought of this being a “dream fight” to the curve it’s certainly a dream crossover you would see out of a comic book such as Batman vs The Incredible Hulk. Both of them are big bad dudes, one is in the Justice League out of the D.C. Universe, and the other also is huge green freak, but a total badass who also happens to be a part of a dominant super hero team in the Avengers in the Marvel universe. It’s not often we get to see two big cornerstones in their respective sport agree to duke it out to see who’ll reign supreme.

Besides the $100 price tag that comes along with this fight, we saw all sorts of ups and down, both good, but mainly bad in the build up to this fight. We saw both fighters hit rock bottom as in they both went as far as using racial references with Conor McGregor throwing money at Floyd Mayweather telling him “dance for me boy”, which raised eyebrows, and saying “he was black from the waste down”. Mayweather went as far as calling him homophobic slurs, both fighters disrespecting each other on another level on their world tour–and now Mayweather has stated that he’s fighting for all the black folks, so in these situations it surely makes it a little uncomfortable. Nonetheless place your bets, because this literally can go both ways.

As if the stakes weren’t high enough with $400 million new “Money Belt” was introduced yesterday, and this bad boy is loaded with gold and diamonds. This new money belt was specifically made for the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight, and its weighed down by 3.3 pounds in gold! If that’s not good enough to make you question your place on earth, or want to make you rethink your career, 3,360 diamonds were thrown on this belt, along with 600 sapphires and 160 emeralds. Yep… oh wait the strap is also made from crocodile leather.

Prediction

This fight is pretty hard to predict actually. I can see both fighters presumably dragging this fight out with all the money and belt involved, not to mention why risk injury here? Then again I could see Conor trying to end it early which could get him in trouble if he’s not fighting smart, same goes for Mayweather. Conor definitely has the height, reach and speed advantage, but being that this will be contested under boxing rules Floyd remains the favorite here. We won’t see any MMA moves here, but if the fans get a KO or TKO it’s going to be Conor with his arms raised in victory. As for Mayweather he’s going to play this fight safe, dance around, throw counters, block with his shoulder and throws jabs every now and then which is going to frustrate McGregor, but if that happens for all 12 rounds Floyd is adding another victory to his collection.

Mayweather wins: By points and decision. I’ve seen it too many times, and as much as I would love for Conor to win he won’t win unless he ends it by TKO in the earlier rounds.
