    Damn glad that shit is over. Too much hype for me to take. To even get to the 10th in your 1st EVER boxing match is a credit to MacGregor. As for Floyd you still should be 49-0 not 50.

    I hope Floyd saved some energy to go home and beat his woman into a bloody pulp and then watch while she is gang-raped by his posse afterwards. I mean, hey, 50-0 has its perks, right?

    Looked like the ref called it too soon to me. Coner said so too.

    You know, Conor won this fight, not in the sense of a final score or TKO, but someone with no prior experience boxing went 10 rounds with arguably the best pound for pound boxer in a generation and got a TKO...that is questionable.

    That's a Conor win. Mayweather should have dismantled Conor is a few rounds, but didn't.

    Of course, Money may need more money, so whether this was calculated for a re-match....who knows.

    Conor was out of his league they all said but the first four rounds he was putting a lick on Fayweather
    who, smart as a cagey old bull, let McGregor wear himself down
    until he was near gassed.. and then opened up. Kind of. For Fayweather. At least he walked forward.
    and McGregor spent rounds 5, 6, 7 mostly walking backwards
    Round 8 was Conor's last stand. his tank was empty.
    the fight 'could' have been called in Round 9 but somehow punch drunk exhausted McGregor lasted until the bell
    Round 10 was not going to turn out so well. Conor touched and swang at once but no steam existed, the mouthy Irishman was playing pitapata
    not that Fayweather struck so firecely either but Conor has stood more steady after a case of Guinness and a fifth of Jameson.
    He never fell. He never got knocked down. He was still dodging at the end. but it was over and everyone knew it even if Conor didn't have the guts to admit it.
    He made a go of it and collected $100,000,000.00+

    He proved he could get that far
    He also proved that a stout boxing MMA fighter has no business being in the ring with a 49-0 world champion boxer (at least past 5 rounds)
    And tonight proved that boxing is dead as a sport. Wow were some of the under cards booooooooooooooooring. They should have had half of the undercard be MMA which would have livened things up considerably.
    And the arena was 93% empty until 10 minutes before the main event
    It looked terrible in the prelim bouts backgrounds

    But it was entertainment
    and I didn't pay for it... Thanks Glenn!!

    Conor was pissed.

    In the British sense of the word...

    I didn't watch it nor do I ostensibly care ... yet when I saw FM had won, all I could think was what a disgusting piece of human garbage he is and how he ought to be in prison for the rest of his life. He's a woman beater. He's also a top fighter, yet if he weren't, he'd be in prison. But he's a millionaire boxer and that sport is pure, unadulterated dogshit and that's my take.

    But hey, enjoy your fight night. I get it.

    Connor looked as good as he could. may just played with him and knew he would tire. 8oz gloves? where was that Connor power? Floyd took his straight left a few times like it was a 12 year old girl hitting him. if Floyd wanted to fight like he usually does, Connor wouldn't have landed a punch, but he wanted that ko. then the 40 year old man that was inactive for 2 years, that half assed trained, partied 2 nights before in the AM walked down the younger and much bigger guy and ended it.

    sadly though this was more entertaining than 90 percent of boxing matches.

    GGG vs Alvarez, the English heavyweight scene. Boxing is far from dead.

    GGG against anyone alive standing, whatever about Alvarez - OK that's 1 - GGG

    Name three more.
    Name any heavyweight anyone cares about now that the brothers Klitscho have sired out to pasture
    We had a crowd of 30-35 and half left for the backyard the boxing was so weak.
    These are the same fight educated crowd that cheer knowledgeably at UFC MMA fights


    A decade ago all the 'real' fighting talent went into MMA because cage fighting is far more akin to real world street fighting than Marquis de Quinsbury rules.

    you're right. not to mention all the young kids watching the past decade actually have a chance to be an mma fighter via wrestling. not many can start boxing competitively at a young age. but you can wrestle.

    surprised you even watched this "fight"
    remember the epic fight nights w my dad when it was Hearns/Hagler and Whitaker/Chavez and Leonard/Duran and Benitez and Mayweather and Camacho and the whole sport was incredible?
    but that set of middleweights was special and they all actually fought each other
    and then came that shameful night when it was decided Leonard had beaten Marvelous Marvin
    that was the end for me even paying attention
    i loved hagler and he straight up beat Sugar Rays ass in that fight
    i seriously stopped watching it
    i think pro wrestling might have more integrity
    but those nights around the tv are some pretty fucking good memories
    unless of course you weren't there and then you missed out lol
    and btw fcuk you

    I recall the Leonard-Benitez fight. I was a freshman in HS and that was shown on ABC on a Friday night. I watched it at home and my Dad was at work. He was a bartender. In the morning, we ate breakfast and compared notes about technique and efficacy of the way Leonard earned that win. It feels like that was just a few years ago but it was 1979 (?).

    And yes ... Hagler beat Leonard, and Duran threw the second Leonard bout. And that's when it began to unravel for me. Like you, I loved the sport, but it was taken over by the King Syndicate and a collective of unimaginative jagoffs. I'm no fool - I know the mob ran boxing previous to that, but at least they had style. Today, style is a brontosaurus.
