I guess it’s time to finally weight in on the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight since I’m taking my son to God’s country tomorrow with his friends for his birthday. I always bite my tongue when it comes to politics but this is boxing. The fight is in a boxing ring and not an octagon. As much as anyone can wish it’s a MMA fight it’s not.
Here’s my take and it’s totally different then others.
Mayweather is a boxer and he’s not going to just stand there and exchange punches so McGregor better knock him out in the first few rounds because if he doesn’t he will get fatigued or even flustered by Mayweather… Conor’s second nature will kick in and you’ll find him hesitating not to resort back to something he naturally does in the octagon. He will break boxing rules and find himself disqualified or find himself with warnings that will have him lose the bout if it comes down to a decision. I know, I know, he will lose all his money based on the contract. I get that. However, I’ve see it happen with many guys that jumped in the ring after years of training in a different discipline.
My take isn’t from outside the ring as a spectator, commentator or fan but being inside the ring almost every day after school when I was younger. I don’t really talk about my boxing days anymore, ok, I started last week. I wasn’t that bad of a boxer. I was actually was pretty good to the point that the All-Marine Boxing coach used to call me at home to recruit me and after getting ranked 33 in the nation, I was asked to move down to Pensacola to be Roy Jones Jr sparing partner but I chose to go to college instead. Thank God I did. Now for the unseen uppercut in this post, flip the tables, put it in an octagon and MMA rules, McGregor would win. Boxers only have 2 lethal weapons, their hands. Take them away we’re screwed.
