The only thing going down is a lot of money for both protagonists and a brilliant mma career, because mcgregor will not fight again for peanuts in comparison after this.
In an earlier post you said you box. That let's me know all I need to know about how you have formed your opinion. You asked a question earlier about how a Karate stance could change things if you aren't allowed to kick. Obviously you don't know about hand strikes in Karate? Yes kicking is a primary tactic in Karate but there are also several forms of punches and deflections that can be used in the boxing ring that normally wouldn't be used by a regular boxer. Floyd is a regular boxer, who has gone up against guys who have done nothing but boxed their whole careers. This is why Conor being able to have different stances, and angles could make such a difference in the fight.
You're a boxing fan. That's good, great, wonderful, but because of you being a fan of the sweet science you are overlooking the true and undeniable threat that Conor poses. Floyd very well may win this fight, but it definitely won't be a pure domination and he damn sure won't get the TKO/KO that some Mayweather fans are going on about. Conor could also win this fight, and if he does it will more than likely be by either KO or TKO inside the first four rounds. Floyd said he is planning on coming after Conor. IF he actually does this, then you can expect an early night to be had by McGregor. McGregor has the reach, the height, the speed, and the power advantage. If Floyd comes to FIGHT instead of use his typical defensive boxing, he will lose big time.
Any person looking at this fight objectively can see this. YOU are not looking at this objectively, because you are only looking at it from a pure boxing stance using standard boxing angles, distance, counters and strikes. You want to act as though you are being logical about this when in fact you are being highly emotional and irrational. You are clearly a Floyd fan, which hey no biggie, but your fandom is overruling your good judgement. I just had a similar conversation with someone else about this on this forum, so don't feel bad as you aren't the only person being illogical while thinking they are being logical. We can't all be Spock. Some one has to be Sulu. Yeah I know he's gay in real life, but aren't we passed that in this day and age?
