This had sparked up (again) the ongoing debate about whether or not him and Floyd “Money” Mayweather are going to have a boxing match sometime in the future. The two have traded verbal jabs at one another and a showdown may be on the way. It does seem like a match that needs to happen at this point. However, many seem to ask themselves “what’s the point?” Obviously these two are looking to make a massive amount of money for the fight, but what should the fans expect? Is it going to be entertaining? If you enjoy seeing The Notorious beaten and embarassed (more than he did at UFC 196) then this is the PPV for you to throw your money at.

Conor McGregor’s stamina played a huge factor in his loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 196

McGregor’s boxing is good for a UFC fighter, but in the pro boxing world his skills would not allow him to last twelve rounds with most boxers. His cardio was exposed when he fought Nate Diaz in a 15 minute contest. Boxing matches can go on for more than twice that length. There have been many legendary boxers who said they were going to beat Mayweather (such as Manny Pacqiao, Oscar De La Hoya, and Canelo Alvarez) and none of them were able to deliver. The only people who actually believe McGregor has a chance are his die-hard fans that continually worship him throughout his career. This will not even be a fair contest as Floyd Mayweather would dominate Mystic Mac until he hits the canvas.
