In all my years watching boxing I've never seen a match up like this that's worth so much money and is such a joke. Boxing needs to have a word wit itself if the biggest money fight ever is 2 blokes from different sports. I for one won't be tuning in.
Couldnt agree more with 341.I hope the fight is stopped quite quickly so McGregor has chance to spend his money, rather than Mayweather beating him badly for 12 rounds.However this fight pans out, it is one of the last nails in boxing's coffin.
Should have made the announcement on April 1st ..... if it wasn't such a big joke it should see action taken against them both for bringing boxing into disrepute
Good shout 347, other sports that have fun games usually donate the money to various charities, I put this in the same category, I would definitely donate.
Who cares that they are doing it for the money? I mean really! Yes it will be a mismatch but still a great spectacle. At the end of the day people did want to see this fight happen and now the same people are just pointing out that they are money grabbers. Most of you will still pay to watch it I bet
A new low for boxing, what more can I say.
I predict that the UFC guy will be dumped on his backside in pretty short order. If he puts up any kind of fight it don't say much about the sport of boxing or a so called all time great. Anyone remember Ali vs a wrestler? That was a farce too.
they should have put this on at wrestlemania because it is of that level, complete farce, all about the money, loser is the sport of boxing. Its like asking a boxer to fight one handed on his knees, total sham, and I am neither interested in watching or knowing the result, wouldn't be interested even if this was free to view, I love boxing and this sideshow just blemishes it.
anything other than a Mayweather Knock out is a total Travesty for Boxing, Only boxing can lose in this fight...
great match up //// mcgregor v Bruce lee. " to the death" what a pay day
ps quite agree with previous posters , This ridiculous circus cannot be associated or recognised on Moneyweathers boxing records.have this odd matchup for CHARITY only, after expenses. and i may bother to contribute.
the best bit to this daft fight is the outcome , if mcgregor gets beat it has 0 effect on hiscarreer, if he wins he will double$ his next cage fight.
$$$$$$$$ x $$$$$$$$ = enough public and curious fools who like a circus , to make a multi million $ matchup .greedy promoters and all to do, with this rather DAFT fight are drooling over the pay out. wish Moneyweather could be a man of pride and principal and laughed the idea off, UNLESS , give his purse after expenses to Charity circus promoters should have 2 leg fight box / mma
They should spice up the fight by allowing bites. McGregor could use his advantage close in to apply a few bites, while Mayweather may resort to bites himself if he cant keep the range. Fights with bites are more of a spectacle.
i also hope this "contest" does not go on mayweather's record,assuming he wins, as he would then surpass the greatest of the lot, rocky marciano, and that would be a travesty. it is like a pro-celebrity fight, roll up, roll up, pay your £/$/€ and fill their pockets, money talks and boxing will be a laughing stock, what a sham
the ugly face of modern sport $£$£$£$£$£$£$£$£$£$£$£$£$£$£$While the fat get richer
Peppa Pig vs Fireman Sam would be more likely to get my attention. A tacky farce. No self-respecting boxing fan should touch it.
This fight is nothing but fixed and makes a joke of boxing.connor will be happy to pick up.the massive pay packet and mayweather gets to beat rocks record.its a joke what next hulk hogan vs Joshua.
I would urge every self respecting boxing fan to shun this farce. Start petitions to boycott the scam. It is an insult to the sport of boxing by two 'athletes ' to whom money is GOD and their sole objective.
