I agree with Joeyjojo…Mayweather is a defensive, boring boxer. No doubting his skills…just boring as fuck for me…one for the purists maybe. Bit like some of Mourinhos teams…they grind out a win but i'd rather watch Keegan's Newcastle. I hope Mcgregor knocks him out.

Cringeworthy and embarrassing press conferences from both fighters. Ridiculous.

Just to echo Rick, there's plenty of good boxing out there if you look. The Josh Taylor O'Hara Davies fight was brilliant, George Groves recently was good too, as was Brook Spence Jnr.

This fight is a farce, but its going to be watched.

Mcgregor getting riled though, Mayweather is actually doing quite well at playing these presser games.

When you see mcgregor chewing the shit out of his gum like his jaw about to explode you know he's getting beat at his own game.

Mayweather throwing ones at him and calling him a hoe, Mcgregor points out they're all ones and he replies that's all you're worth bitch Laughing out loud

If you don't think it's scripted by a production team, then you are a fool.

Doubt it, Mayweather has obviously sat down and thought of things to do, because he took a beating the last couple of days, but very much doubt they are sticking to scripts,

In fact its quite obvious that Mcgregor says whatever he wants and is not reading off scripts.

The whole thing is embarrassing. Hope Mayweather wins with a KO early on, so any ideas of a second fight can be put to bed. Then boxing can return to normal.

Deffo, said it earlier in this thread, but mayweather aint knocked anyone out for about 10 years, think ricky was the last guy he knocked out. Plus he's a lot older now and he is a defensive fighter, he will duck, weave and bob and all the other boring shit he does and score points on the counter.

mayweather is pretty much a dead cert to win… BUT… if conor catches mayweather with that left, its night night - hes hits hard. plus conor is a southpaw which will help him make that big left.
he'll struggle to actually hit him though. i want conor to get frustrated and throw a kick or something Laughing out loud

im gonna whack £20 on conor, in the odd chance he makes a big connect

Laughing out loud From watching them through the week its obvious its not scripted. Plus what kind of production team would advise Mcgregor to say he is black from the waist down and do a little grind for the lovely black women in the audience?! Laughing out loud

Plus shouting dance for me boy to Mayweather I would suggest is borderline racist, its deffo not scripted, its just mcgregor talking shit like he always has done in the UFC and now finally mayweather has had to sit down and think of ways to step his game up in the press conferences.
