    Boxing is clickbait is this point. Everyone expects this fight to be a farce, but yet with all the hype and the slight hint of a chance that McGregor, with his MMA experience, will fluke his way to a knockout is enough to draw in millions of people/dollars.

    It's the perfect end to Mayweather's career - he represents everything that's wrong with modern boxing. Always fights on PPV, boring fighting style & doesn't take risks, avoids anyone who could seriously challenge him, a despicable person outside of boxing, his actual talent is less important than hype & the storyline.

    McGregor's got some pretty crazy angles in his stand up, whether that translates to anything competitive against a defensive boxer I don't know, but stranger things have happened. If McGregor luckboxes a KO I feel like it'll be the final nail on the coffin for big PPV boxing events. Even though Mayweather will likely win by decision it really seems like a no-win situation for boxing and I'm sure some fighters are against it. Either way I'm rooting for Conor, it's hard not to unless you're a boxing purist.

    I'm rooting for Mayweather. I dislike McGregor and he'll be everywhere if he wins.

    You like that POS Mayweather? He's a pussy running fighter. I hope Connor knocks him out.

    My dream fight is McGregor loses via DQ by knocking Mayweather unconscious in the 1st with a roundhouse kick.

    He still gets paid either way, and like he gives a fuck about his boxing license.

    Too bad they couldn't have made it a hybrid fight. Alternate rounds between MMA and boxing

    That should be a prop pet.

    McGreger isnt used to going 12 rounds, by the 10th he gets winded, forgets what sport it is and does a take down

    I'm rooting for something to happen that literally everyone who is stupid enough to pay to watch this fight on ppv comes away mad, no matter who they want to win.

    If you watch it for free, I wish happiness and satisfaction
