I hope McGregor knocks Floyd out. Both are good fighters but I think Mayweather is running out of steam.

Mayweather will definitely win. McGregor is already talking too much and he will not get far.

I am not a Mayweather fan. I am hoping that Mcgregor will knock him out on the 2nd round.

I am not a fan of Mayweather at all. I hope he goes down.

This fight is such a joke. MMA and boxing are two different sport. Saying that McGregor has a shot is like saying rugby guys had a shot in the NFL. So far, no rugby player has done that great in the NFL. The same thing will happen when Conor fights Floyd.

Mayweather may be getting old, but he is one of the greatest boxers of all time. Sure, Conor can pack a punch, but I doubt he'll be able to catch Mayweather. Floyd is just too damn elusive. If the best boxers over the last 20 or so years haven't been able to beat him, how could some cat from MMA stand a chance? I know he has a fantastic record in UFC, but that's a completely different sport. Even Michael Jordan, basketball's GOAT, couldn't compete when it came to baseball. I understand that MMA is more similar to boxing than basketball is to baseball, but you get the picture.

Both fighters are making millions off of it. I'll still watch it. But don't expect this to be like Ali-Frazier. This is going to be more like--I don't know--the Evander Holyfield-Mitt Romney charity match.

I somewhat agree with you but Mayweather is way too cocky. I would love to see him loose.

tony.martinez: I agree dustan, it's a money

I agree dustan, it's a money grab and we are all going to watch the circus that surrounds it. Both fighters are selling it like if McGregor lands a punch he could knock Floyd out and that actually could be true that's we will watch, but chances are he won't land a punch and even if he lands one it probably won't knock Floyd down.

tony.martinez: Floyd will dance around and
Sat, 06/17/2017 - 15:17

Floyd will dance around and pick him apart and win by decision as he has done for 20 years.

dubbydubdub: I totally agree. Mayweather
Mon, 06/19/2017 - 18:35

I totally agree. Mayweather will win by decision only.

Jesusinspirit: I will be watching this fight

I will be watching this fight for sure. I am kind of excited that it is happening.

I actually think Mcgregor has a chance. I hope he runs with the fight. Mayweather is just not my favorite person.

sarasimon: Would love to see McGregor

Would love to see McGregor win this fight. One lucky punch could do it.

I think Mayweather will take McGregor down. Easy money.

Part of me believes this is a joke but a part of me would like to see a knockout by McGregor. One punch is all it could take.

I think many people think its a joke but for 45 million dollars Mayweather will fight anyone. I would too. lol
