I'm a huge boxing fan. I see almost every big fight and many smaller ones. Heck, I've been in some dives watching fights before.

This one is a joke and I have no interest in watching it. McGregor should have never been sanctioned for this fight. It's one thing if he took on a top 20 guy like Berto or even a moderately successful guy like Brandon Rios or Brandon Alvarado. Win that and at least we know you belong in the ring. But a first-time match against Mayweather (who I consider over-rated)? That's a joke and the only reason it was sanctioned was money.

Frankly, I hope McGregor forgets and kicks Mayweather in the head. I'd love it if they somehow both lost.

I want to see Conor win so that everyone so sure about Floyd winning the fight is wrong, like Hillary pollsters or like Falcon fans at 28-3.

Connor haven't shown anything in his training and sparring that he stood a chance.

Does Mayweather care more about 50-0, or another $100+ million?

Because, a rematch after a loss is the only way he gets this huge of a payday again.

I think he wants the record, though.

I hope McGreggor wins too, but I just can't imagine it even being much of a fight.  The greatest boxer of a generation is fighting a guy who is making his pro boxing debut.  McGreggor is a great mixed martial artist, but it so different than boxing in so many ways.  The Patriots comeback was against a lot of odds, but this would be like the Patriots losing to the All Blacks in American football... or vice versa.

Isn't this some type of gimmick to make money?

From what I hear the people who actually paid to watch are having enough problems to begin with.

I don't follow boxing or MMA, but the whole thing feels like a gimmick and both guys seem like terrible people so, I hope the ring explodes while everyone's feed is frozen on Dana White's bloated head.

I don't know why anyone would buy this travesty of a fight BUT if you buy it and invite me to watch I won't say no.

I'm surprised, what are the issues?

Surely a gimmick, no winners here.  I've always for someone to deviate from the script and KO Mayweather, though.  I believe Shane Mosley almost did, but backed off as expected.
