No I didn't think he was relatively unbeatble but thought (and still worry) that his personal issues may subsume him re the boasting of the coke use pre fights and the hit and run incident demons may rear their heads again, but right now he is king of the world.

See the UK price for the Conor fight is an affordable £20 on sky, its $100 in the US, not that I'm gonna watch a 4 am fight live, was wondering if anyone gives McGregor a chance since the Paulie Malignaggi footage came out, seems he's a legit boxer against Paulie a worldclass boxer, I personally worry it will go the full 12 rounds with no knockouts and Mayweather winning every round on points, only way its different is if Conor lands an unconventional (dirty to some) left knock out blow early.

think the footage is a little misleading;


saying that, yeah, conor will aim for an aggressive early knockout with a left, as he knows he cant outbox floyd and win on points.
im excited, i expect it to be a pretty interesting fight. conor being extremely aggressive and floyd obviously doing what he does best, but it'll be good to see how floyd handles a 'fighter', rather than a traditional boxer.

Prob best for boxing Mayweather won it, full credit to Mcgregor for the spirited effort. If he fought Mayweather in his heyday would have been easier no doubt. He looked slower and more his age but class told in the end.

Brain over Braun! 50-0, hopefully proves that it's so difficult to switch codes quickly it prob won't happen again.

Respectful end to the circus.

Genuinely thought it was a completely one sided affair, mayweather literally did nothing in the early rounds, and gave those rounds to Conor. When he began to box the gulf in class was evident.

The real genius however was how both Conor and mayweather managed to convince people that it would be competitive
