Quick Thoughts from a Casual Fan on Mayweather-McGregor fight
It came. It went. But man, did I enjoy the spectacle that was fight in Las Vegas one week ago today.
Fittingly, the fight came with a lot of hype as both fighters, both publically and privately, took jabs at each other for weeks. Some were very personal. And in this case, that further led to sides being taken by those who were now even further hopeful in a particular fighter reigning victorious and for those who’re undecided.
It came up with a lot of crazy rhetoric both the real media and in social media and crazy was the was prediction of McGregor’s swift victory being predicted— it obviously did not muster up any juice beyond a strange but popular prediction. And even more odd was the prediction Connor McGregor would kick Mayweather, while knowingly breaking the rule of no kicking, while kicking Mayweather: again, something that was only a prediction again.
As the days until the fight inched closer, I still didn’t think analyzing boxing was easy. It’s much simpler than I thought and made it much simpler for myself by using some translating logic from a sport I know very well. When this realization happened while doing so in gaining quite of insight: insight that came from the realization: like professional football, the opponent in a better shape is in more of an authoritative competing position. Because of this fact of where the body is in comparison for what a sports demands, I hated what I saw from McGregor from a real chance standpoint.
McGregor looked like the football equivalent of a stud prospect who did his best to have his body where it should be, but didn’t. Mayweather looked like the All Pro who knew where his body should be to compete and win. McGregor looked like the kid, despite being bigger and Mayweather looked like the man with a plan. One that proved better.
Even when he was down to final weight it looked as if McGregor was a little fleshy for a boxer and looked prone to wearing down as I predicted a round 8 TKO (it eventually came in Round 10). As those of us who gathered at sports bars crowded around to watch, I still could not help to run my mouth in noticing I did not think McGregor was in good enough shape. I thought: it wasn’t boxing shape. And I thought it could be a problem.
People probably thought I was crazy, while I echoed the same sentiment in exaggerating my rhetorical tone while saying McGregor looked obese, responded to with a really….
I sat on my words for a while, then came round 8 and time. That was a good time until next.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/quick-thoughts-from-a-casual-fan-on-mayweather-mcgregor-fight/https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/mayweather-mcgregor-121516.jpg?fit=950%2C633&ssl=1https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/mayweather-mcgregor-121516.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1AnalysisBoxingCombat SportsEntertainmentPower RankingsRecent PostsTV ShowsWWEConor McGregor,Floyd Mayweather Jr.,mayweather mcgregorIt came.
