If McGregor Beats Mayweather...Will anyone believe it's not fixed?

Page 2 of Lets say that McGregor is able to slip a punch in and KO Mayweather, will anyone believe that it wasn't fixed to set up an even bigger rematch? I don't... 32 comments | 507 Views | Go to page 1 →

    There's no chance that happens though. Floyd is going to destroy him. My guess is it's over in 4 rounds max.
    It won't be the end of boxing, but it will certainly make MMA people more annoying than they already are.

    I think it will be in the US. It's already fallen so far in the past couple of decades. If the main attraction of the sport gets beat by a guy that's never boxed before? Bad news IMO.

    Mayweather was hard up for money enough to take this fight, so you never know, but I don't see it. He wants to hit 50-0, even in a clown show boxing match.

    And as I have said time and again, nothing would excite me more than to see Mayweather go down. Just a whole other level of despicable human being.

    The only hope you have if you are pro-McGregor is that you hope Floyd has not taken this fight too serious, and taking off a couple years in his advanced age will show enough to catch him. I do think Floyd has the pressure of the boxing world to knock out Conor and to do it fast. Which is polar opposite of how Floyd like to run... I mean fight each match. So in that sense Floyd could find himself in the uncomfortable position of being the aggressor. Unless it is a woman.

    First time he fights someone that can do it.

    I saw Oscar De La Hoya on ESPN this morning, he said that McGregor would never land a punch in the fight.

    I have said there is a better shot McGregor lands a punch than wining this fight. Hoping I am wrong!

    Not sure what it will be worth in this match, but by fight time I could see McGregor outweighing Mayweather by 15 lbs or so.

    Mayweather has a huge ego. No way he "takes" a loss. Not even for a rematch.

    I agree, but if he looses everyone will say that he did

    You are probably right. I am not big on conspiracy theories, especially in sports.

    A lot of people think it was fixed since it went 10 rounds.

    McGregor dictated the pace for the first 5 rounds then you could see the tide turn in rounds 6-10. Impressed McGregor lasted as long as he did. He had checked out in the 9th. It was just a matter of time before Mayweather finished him.

    Now we can go back to not caring about boxing!

    For some reason, Friday night, I ended up watching 3 WBC feather and light weight championship fights on LATV. I had forgotten how much I love "The Sweet Science" and was thoroughly entertained. I enjoyed those fights much more than the spectacle last night. However, I only got to see the last fight of the under card, Davis/Fonseca, and even that ended up being a fiasco.

    Didn't Mayweather say he had money on the fight ending in 9.5 rounds or less? I don't think it got halfway in to the 10th...Which would put it at the 9.5 or less.

    Also, how on earth could 2 of the judges score rounds 2 and 3 for Mayweather? There was no question who won those rounds.
