It’s finally here, after being announced two months ago, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will face each other in a boxing ring tomorrow night (26/08/2017) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
When it comes to previewing the fight, it will be one that fans are interested in watching, but, know who will come out on top.
Floyd Mayweather is coming out of retirement to face ‘The Man’ in UFC, Conor McGregor in a sporting event to remember.
The carnival has been and gone and it is now time for the fighters to take centre stage and see whether it was worth the hype.
McGregor is a huge underdog in this fight and Mayweather is surely the winner.
Whilst training in MMA, McGregor’s trainers point out that he was a good boxer in the Dublin gyms, but, the transition from MMA to boxing is not an easy one. This is because the Irishman will only be able to use his fists instead of using his legs to take out his opponent.
Despite being in retirement for two years, Mayweather still looks in great shape (forget about the so called cheeseburger diet) and it would not be surprising if he still does some boxing just to keep himself fit.
Mayweather is not the big hitter, but, what makes him stand out is his reflexes and his ability to wear down opponents.
McGregor will come out swinging and this will make for an entertaining start, but, Mayweather’s ability to miss shots will tire McGregor very quickly.
The only way McGregor could shock the world is by constantly getting up close and personal with Mayweather. However, Mayweather will constantly try and use the ring in order to keep his opponent at a safe distance.
Whether McGregor is knocked out or lasts 12 rounds, but, loses on the judges scorecards, there is only one winner in this fight and that is Floyd Mayweather.
