This Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather fight is the most-hyped boxing card since Balboa battled Drago in ’85. Some believe McGregor has a puncher’s chance against the greatest boxer of the 21st century, but — real talk — a teenager at Floyd’s gym could probably destroy the Irishman over 12 rounds.
Mayweather makes the kids do some spartan/fight club type of shit. It’s raw.

If you enjoy the theatrics of fighting, you have to like Conor McGregor. He’s a world-class trash talker — the best since Muhammad Ali — which he proved yet again during the promotion’s international tour. The clip below is from the Toronto stop, which lacked the energy of the first gathering in Los Angeles, but was a much tighter set.
How many fighters could grab a microphone and entertain a crowd for seven minutes? Yeah, he’s dipping into the never-ending well of Mayweather’s vices, faults, and follies, and playing to a generous crowd, but McGregor is reaching Puff Daddy or Guy Fieri levels of artistry here. He’s coming into his own.
So, while I’m a Conor McGregor fan, I’m also a realist. These are the possible outcomes for the fight August 26th in Las Vegas —
A) Mayweather by Unanimous Decision | Floyd puts on the final defensive exhibition of his career and toys with Conor through 12 rounds of soul-destructing domination; Money, instead of finishing the Irishman, opts for the I Want to Enjoy This approach made popular by movie villains. Mayweather leaves the arena to boos, which he cherishes for the rest of his days.
B) Mayweather by TKO | Mayweather razzles, dazzles and TKOs McGregor with a vindictive succession of left hooks to the liver. McGregor loses part of the organ and doesn’t fight again ’til 2018. Tearful Irish eyes watch as Conor tries to stand; His corner throws in the towel and he defiantly tosses it back — “Stay down, Conor. Ya got nutt’n left to prove!”
C) Hey There, Bud | McGregor tries to soften up Mayweather with a few inside leg kicks and is disqualified.
D) So You’re Saying There’s a Chance | McGregor decides the fight is only lasting four rounds; He uses his size to smother Mayweather and literally pushes around the little bastard to disrupt his movement like Rocky and Apollo did back in ’76 and ’79.
Conor isn’t worried about getting knocked out by Floyd, which allows him to swing wildly and just maybe realize his shot at immortality … but Floyd is too fast, too smart and too good. Conor gasses out and loses by a lopsided decision — or maybe even a knockout.
Santa Claus is fake.
Global warming is real.
Floyd Mayweather is the greatest boxer of his generation.
Hey, going toe-to-toe with the best in the world and walking away with $75 to $100 million makes Conor a winner — don’t you think?
… Maybe we should wait for the CT scan.
