After the dodge motion he is off balance, then as he tries to stabilize his head is pushed or held down, which makes him fall. Just to detail my opinion more, but I don't want to discuss this much further
Of course we will all see, just that buying into the words as if they are supposed to mean what they say....no, it is ALL. COMPLETELY marketing, selling, promoting. Coner probably believes his words, anybody pushinglimits needs to. But if you set aside the emotional stuff and look at the facts: mayweather is the grandmaster, best of the best, 30 years of success on the highest level, with great work ethic. mcgregor is a boxing newbie with overconvidence. and great work ethic. logic dictates mcgregor cannot win. it would be a miracle, the fluke of the century, glitch in the matrix
Every fight has a marketing component (e.g. GGG vs. Canelo, Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, Conor vs. Aldo, etc.)
Mayweather is also 40 years old. Slower. Been out of ring for 2 years. Has struggled with Southpaws. Conor will be the bigger fighter with longer reach with 20 lbs. on him. Has heavier hands. Quicker. Floyd has never fought Conor's style of boxing. Floyd will be fighting more offensively than he usually does. It won't be a miracle, fluke, etc. or whatever. If it happens, it'll be because you read Conor wrong.
That would matter in a boxing match of boxing newbies. Not against one of if not the greatest of all time. Foreman was what, over fifty when he still had major wins? Those skills attained from 2 years age onwards, crafted in a lifetime, staying at the very top for 20+ years, do not go away in 2 years of taking it easy, that's a hilarious thought.
Did you pay attention on how fit mayweather still is? How snappy his punches are, i'm inclined to say, in contrast of mcgregor's?
What magic moves do you mcgregor lovers think he possesses, to beat such a boxer of the highest caliber? I mean if those moves existed, *some* boxers should have found them, as it is about winning, not about how you do it, correct?
See it as it is, mcgregor will with incredible high chances get his beating together with 100 million and will probably, sadly, never fight in the ufc again. why would he, he is a made man and smart in that regard. unless it is a multi million fight, which is hard to imagine in the ufc.
