Listened to ex-heavyweight champ George Foreman on the radio a couple of days ago, he was asked "do you think this fight is a farce? "
His reply was "this is simply what fight fans want to see, if you want to find a farce in boxing, look no further than when the sanctioning bodies allowed multiple world champions, Until the WBA, WBC, WBO and IBF unify the belts, our sport will remain a farce"

Hats off to the big man

Exactly as above. Boxing fans need to get off their high horse and take a look at their sport before looking down their noses at this contest.

It's a show, an event. If you don't want to watch it then fine, don't. I for one am looking forward to it. The greatest boxer against one of the greatest fighters. Reckon Floyd wins, depending on how he takes that left off Connor when he lands it.

He will land, there's no doubt in my mind about that.

Also the 'Thuggery' argument of the UFC is a total nonsense. So yes sometimes there is blood due to the nature if the gloves they have to wear. But you can win a UFC contest in any number of ways that involve zero long term damage. Whereas boxing your sole aim is to hit your opponent on the head with a weighted glove. An unbelievable arrogance to consider MMA any more dangerous than Boxing.

The fact that opponents dedicate themselves to so many variations and styles of fighting.

Someone with good ground game may take on someone with good stand up. Seeing how they have trained and what tactics they deploy to try make their strengths win them the fight whilst avoiding falling foul to their opponents. There are so many variables to a fight.

Not all fights are brilliant, but the same can be said for any sport.

Mayweather v Pacquiao was a genuine contest although it came too late in the day for it to be a pound for pound greatest event. This is just a show event. I'm not going to contribute to the finances of these two thoroughly unlikable characters. I get that it's showbiz and they want people to hate them because then people will buy the fight in the hope that they'll see the One the hate most get a beating but when it's the contest itself is so fabricated it seems pointless.
I actually wouldn't be surprised if there were some sort of controversy which would enable a lucrative rematch.

I have no qualms about paying for it. It's been an enjoyable build up for it in terms of the theatrics and back and forth. A whole group of us are meeting up for it, an evening in the pub before settling down for the undercard. It will cost me a couple of quid in the kitty to buy it. When you take it for what it is and don't take it to seriously it's bound to be an enjoyable evening.

Floyd won't agree to a fix, his 49-0 record is too important to him.
(unless it's a fix with him winning...)

A controversial injury? A disqualification for kicking/throwing? Maybe...
Good call for a rematch then.


Guys, I've been in the ring sparring with many MMA fighters,
sure, if they got me to the ground, it would be game over VERY quickly, I'm under no illusions about the skillset of grappling and choke/submission holds that these fighters have
- but not one got close enough.

If this was a fight with a mix of rules, perhaps some grappling allowed, McGregor would have a chance.
But in straight boxing? Behave.

I'm sure there is a clause in the contract that if McGregor uses any MMA moves that aren't allowed in boxing then he loses a significant proportion of the purse. Mayweather will string him along for 5 or 6 rounds then go in for the kill, or will win very easily on points. He won't want to be accused of taking the money ($100 a pop on US PPV!) for a non-contest over inside a few minutes and he won't take a dive since he wants to top Rocky Marciano's record of 49-0.

Agree he wont take a dive but it's likely there will be a controversial end with a rematch very possible.

The next big UFC crossover fight has been killed with Jon Jones testing positive again so if Conor loses this, Dana White will need to oversell a Ronda Rousey comeback again...

I do really feel for Cormier, I saw the video where he was told the first fight was off and he was practically in tears at that point. He went through a tough camp and was physically and mentally ready to go.

As for May vs Mac, agree with above, its more of a show than an actual contest. Should really be over in the first round but I imagine they will drag it out to keep people interested.

Well I'm going to buck the trend and side with McGregor.

I understand why people hate the dude but i find him hilarious and excellent at promoting himself, proven by securing this gig in the first place.

Off the camera I reckon he would be a pretty down to earth nice guy.

Mayweathers defence is incredible, but I don't think he'll have faced someone as unconventional as McGregor before and believe me he needs more than his counter punching to beat Conor who will just walk right up to him and attempt to land, and land I'm pretty certain he will.

The guys in MMA, but look at some of his fights, he has knockout power, knockdowns whilst standing. UFC isn't just all ground and pound.

You also have to take into account that Mayweather is 40 and not been in a ring for two years, train all you want, it doesn't make up for competition itself. McGregor is in his prime, fitness is not an issue, MMA takes more out of someone than 12 rounds of boxing.

Anyone who thinks this will be a stroll for Mayweather i hope are proven wrong.

Only reason I'm not buying it is because of the time it's on, being the old fart that I am and with kids, getting up for a 4am fight isn't happening.

Mayweather is someone I despise, his press conferences are just used as a pedestal for him to show off that hes got money, nothing would please me more than to see Conor batter him.

McGregor's fitness is an issue, look at how he was gassing out in the Diaz fights.

Mayweather has fought someone who has come at him constantly, he's now retired - Marcos Maidana. He was aggressive constantly and Floyd still managed to counter and get the decision twice.

IMO, I think Mayweather walks this. With the amount of money he has, pretty sure he can influence a few senior people to swing a decision his way if needed, but I don't see this going past 6 rounds maximum.

In McGregors defence he had to put weight on to make the 170lb for the Diaz fights. He gassed quickly in the first one as he had a staph infection leading up to the fight so was on some antibiotics during the later stages of the training camp. He has never used it as an excuse though, so credit is due there. He tired again in fight two, fighting at that weight is a tough ask when it's far from natural. But he used the right tactics to get through.

This fight is at a near natural weight for him, I don't see fitness being an issue here.

Crazy that people are ruling out McGregor because he isnt a pro boxer despite the fact all he does in the octagon is box.........just look ay Diaz's face from the first fight, that waa all punches.

The fight hasnt sold out because of the price of tickets. PPV is cheaper than arena tickets so why not just watch it at home? Makes more sense.

Agree with Berry, Scottn4312 and DRFC.

McGregor's biggest strength in the UFC isn't actually his grappling/wrestling (although he is really good at it). It's his striking accuracy and speed.

I'm not surprised that the people McGregor has KO'd have came out and said he had more than a good chance.

And as for him "gassing out" in the Diaz first match. He fought at a weight division two above his normal, and it was a fight made in a very short space of time after Dos Anjos pulled out. He came out after defeat and said he didn't use his energy well, he sensed Diaz was struggling after numerous head shots and had went for the KO. In the re-match he learned from the defeat and went five, five minute rounds with Diaz, winning on points.

I think Mayweather offering to use the 8oz gloves is a big mistake for him.

If anyone doubts him, read his coach - John Kavanagh's book, Win or Learn. It's brilliant. Whether he wins or not on Saturday (I think he will) he is doing things other athletes aren't, he's testing himself and setting challenges. I personally feel he deserved an enormous amount of credit.

"Crazy that people are ruling out McGregor because he isnt a pro boxer despite the fact all he does in the octagon is box.........just look ay Diaz's face from the first fight, that waa all punches."

So you'd back a decathlete who was really fast in the 100 metres to beat Bolt? He may well use his fists more often but he also has other skills and isnt used to just having to use that and will be up against a guy who is more durable since he doesn't have to worry about being kicked etc. McGregor's own defensive stance will be different from normal as he won't have to defend against potential kicks and the like.

"No doubt about it if McGregor catches him proper, Mayweather is out for the count."

There's plenty doubt about it. McGregor may well hit hard but there's no guarantee that any big hit knocks out any boxer.

It's amazing the number of people who genuinely think McGregor is going to win. There's a reason Mayweather is a huge odds on favourite. If it was under MMA rules, it's the other way about and I dont like Mayweather at all.

The only thing guaranteed about Saturdays fight is......... both guys will go home a hell of a lot richer than they are today
Will I pay to watch it ? Not a hope in hell. I give Sky enough money a month to watch sport, I wouldn't give them ANY money on PPV.
Both men have went as far as possible in their chosen sports, Are they both superb showmen ? Absolutely
Both men are all about making as much money as possible as quick as possible, this fight is all about making a vast amount of money for a couple of hours work.
I don't like either of the fighters but nobody can blame the guys for taking this fight.

I don't think there will be a re-match , IMHO I think BOTH fighters will say "it is one of the hardest fights they have ever been in" after the fight goes the full distance.

My prediction is...... win , lose or draw both men will become close friends 😉 . they are well suited

On the financials of this fight, I'm working in Barrow this week...lucky me. I was checking out the local cinema and noticed they're showing the fight there. On their website it shows how many they've sold so far so watch live showing of the fight.

They've sold 1145 tickets at £20 a pop. In Barrow-in-Furness. Nearly £23,000.

Yes (assuming your talking about Rio). Thiam and KJT both jumped 1.98 in the heptathlon, Beitia won the high jump with 1.97.

Worth pointing out a couple of things though..

- Competitions were held on different days. Conditions may have been different (I don't remember if they were)

- Neither Thiam nor KJT competed in the high jump

- in the High Jump Final no-one actually attempted to clear 1.98, the three medallists all cleared 1.97, then failed at 2.00.

- It was the first olympic final where the winning height was below 2m, since 1980.

Folk going for McGregor with their heart over their head, no doubt will continue into the small hours of Sunday with the beer goggles on and Mayweather will shorten in price at the bookies, same way he did when Hatton fought him and when Hatton fought Pacquiao.

Fancy Mayweather @ 3/1 unanimous decision.

Fix my backside, this is one last big payday for Mayweather and he'll want to win it to keep his unblemished record. If he gets beaten by McGregor it will be no fix, getting beat off an MMA fighter would severely dent the world of boxing.

Mayweather just has to catch that "lantern jaw" once and McGregor will be flat on his back.

I honestly think Mayweather will have to carry McGregor for 3 or 4 rounds just to make the contest look justified.

It's a shame for all the mugs who have been taken in by such a fiasco and are actually paying to watch it live.





Hopefully that will have jinxed Mayweather :)

Hope Mayweather makes him look silly

I can't work out if this is Balboa v Thunderlips or Creed v Drago.

Either way I wouldn't pay to watch it.

I'll set my alarm and watch it via Facebook, not because I'm tight but I'm not contributing money to the pair. Especially mcgregor....but at the same time I want to see it lol

Don't have to pay extra to watch it on DSTv here in South Africa; but won't be tuning in live as am running the Mandela Day Half Marathon tomorrow morning. Will probably watch highlights later.

Fitness of Mayweather is unreal. Told you all McGregor would gas out early.

Gassed after 4 rounds, 3 of which he won. Anything after 6 was always going to be hard for Connor. He now will go back to the UFC and dominate again.

No boxer will ever beat a UFC champ in the octagon.

Disappointed, more so because I despise Mayweather. He was always the overwhelming favourite, and was under no illusion i was backing the underdog!

If he was ever going to win it, it had to be within the first few.

Fair play, you won't see another bout against each other in the Octagon thats for sure.

Must be weird getting beat in a fight by someone you could waste in a proper fight. Mayweather is probably the second greatest boxer of all time behind Tyson IMO. A true class act.

Yet again the fighters end up the best of mates afterwards. Funny that.

They might as well have been holding up signs with 'THANK YOU FOR YOUR MONEY, SUCKERS' written in big luminous letters.

...ken?

McGregor did better than I thought but even boxers of inferior quality than Mayweather would have beaten McGregor. The fight was never in doubt from the moment that McGregor landed an uppercut in the first round and it didn't faze Mayweather at all. That was always what McGregor fans had pinned their hopes on, how will Mayweather cope when McGregor lands a punch. McGregors punching power was seriously over estimated.

All necessities provided, all anxieties tranquilized, all boredom amused.

Get over it mate, it's entertainment. You could say that about the WWE every week. People that want to watch it will pay for it, a lot of judgemental people on here min!
