McGregor weighs in heavier than Mayweather ahead of big fight

McGregor weighs in heavier than Mayweather ahead of big fight”

"I've said it's not going the distance and you can mark my words", said Mayweather.

This form of execution is Mayweather's choice, captured in Mayweather's faked hand pistol shots at McGregor during Friday's animated weigh-in at T-Mobile Arena. "He's also a southpaw, which makes it a little more hard for a conventional fighter".

Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe was watching closely as McGregor weighed in and judging by his expression he was positive he was about to celebrate the Irishman missing weight.

Through repeated blows in a technical masterpiece, Mayweather wins by eighth-round technical knockout and heads back to retirement with a 50-0 record.

For McGregor, a victory would give him the greatest upset in combat sports history and establish him as a crossover star able to choose big money fights in both the octagon and the ring.

He's not going to keep that pace, ' said McGregor.

But the Las Vegas smart money is all streaming towards Mayweather with reports of several $1 million bets being laid on the "Money Man". This isn't a fight.

Mayweather has been practicing the art of boxing his entire career.

Mayweather's 40, but that shouldn't make a different.

"I feel Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez title bout in the middleweight category is a bigger event that Mayweather-McGregor", said Waseem.

Mayweather walked down Zab Judah, whom he correctly determined was incapable of throwing punches while in retreat. Judah was once an undisputed welterweight champion.

How long the fight lasts is entirely up to Mayweather.

Beyond the purse, it's Mayweather Promotions and McGregor Entertainment putting on this fight with Shotwime and the UFC, which means all sorts of other money normally reserved for the promoter will also be going (at least partially) to the fighters.

Doing so might even earn him some undue credit for the farcical win. Referee Robert Byrd better be alert.

Despite fears that the biggest fight in combat sports history may not even sell out, the fact that this PPV is expected to break all sorts of records means that those involved are not at all anxious. Otherwise, he'll have a tough time hanging with an elusive defensive maestro like Mayweather, who should win handily.
