I watched a bit of the roadshow and i have to say it left a bad taste in the mouth

both guys were bad mouthing each other. I know its all hype and its to get butts into seats in order to boost revenue and that it then gives each boxer a greater purse but something about this doesn't sit right and i know its all entertaining but it's all got too personal.

What ever happened to gentlemanly sportsmanship? Can two people not compete in respect and then shake hands at the end of it?

Both these guys are incredible at what they do and have worked incredibly hard to get where they are and taken huge risks. Mayweather is already a GREAT in his sport and connor is potentially on his way to becoming one in his sport

I know that there is also a psychological apsect to all this pre-fight sledging and that connor would say that this is a serious business, its war but at the same time mayweather has been at the top of his game for a huge amount of time

Its one thing being irreverant or believeing in your own ability but all the extra nastiness....?

I don't know. What kind of example is this setting for younger guys these days? I hope that when this is all over that regardless of the outcome they are able to show each other some respect

Yes as it turns out, there was respect shown by both guys

McGregor held his own but the ref did a good job and stepped in at the right time

Conor could maybe have have utilised the uppercut at one or two points. Going the distance was always going to be tough and mayweather just stalked him once he felt the snap go out of conors punches

Good fight, mayweathers the champ in his craft and conor in his

‘MacGregor despite them shall flourish forever!’

There usually is respect shown after a fight, you have to remember most of the viewers will be young men with loads of testosterone, all the hype is purely to draw them all in.

On the street there is nearly always this kind of thing before the blows start, its like it charges the atmosphere first, and young men get that.

So do fight promoters.

There isn't usually the kind of hype that there was before this fight. They even did a roadshow to build it up and the rhetoric just went off the charts!

Argh!! Why didn't I put money on it?
Not a fan of either but I knew it would be Mayweather.
Nobody really won!

Glad, i never watch, vile, boxing, or mma, or what ever violent rubbish sports people are into today.

Why people are thrilled, by people being hurt, is something, i will never understand.

Vile sports. But better being licensed, then being underground, with no rules.

Most people i assume love these sports, glad i never did, and never will.

Its the ancient art of pugilism Andy, its not about enjoying people getting hurt, to most anyway, its about two people skilled in their art and enjoying what they are doing.

And it still goes on unlicensed.
If two consenting adults want to get in a ring and beat each other up, why not have a swift bet on it too..

It was better than expected. I think everyone knew that Mayweather would win, it was just a big "what if" and it makes for a hell of a story if the underdog beats the favorite. So after the first 3 it was just watching Mayweather settle into a groove and McGregor gas out.

Conor scored more actual punches than Pacquiao did, and only 6 less than Canelo Alvarez. No need for a rematch unless it's done MMA style.

Which will never happen, Mayweather would be destroyed in the cage.

I hope theres still a rematch in the ring though.

So, has Mayweather equaled Marciano's record, or does it still stand as the fight was hardly a professional bout of equals?

Conor did well however the referee was extremely lenient regarding the illegal punches thrown.
Mayweather had a game plan , sapped McGregors strength, and took full advantage.
The referee did well to step in to avoid unnecessary punishment.

Floyd carried Conor for a while and let him gas before spanking him, which I do believe was the plan. The ref had me screaming. Conor kept humping him and landing rabbit punches. There was that low blow too. I knew he wouldn't give a shit about potentially having points deducted. His best shot to win was a knockout and if he got that then the rule-bending would fade to insignificance.

Went exactly as I said from the beginning... Predetermined fight with both brands leaving unscathed. McGregor's punching technique was embarrassing & Floyd done his best by fighting totally out of character by walking forward with a high guard & not doing anything to give McGregor a couple of rounds before eventually ramping it up (to protect his brand).

I don't know how any boxing aficionado can watch that and not see it was carefully played out. Having read the work of ex match fixer and boxing manager Charles Farrell & how he describes the way that fixed performances require at least one skilled fighter to make it look legit, this certainly appeared to be the case when you watched Mayweather in this fight.

Thankfully this farce is over, and McConor (thanks Floyd Snr) can go back to his domain and we can move on.

He's now on paper 50-0 and Marciano was 49-0.

Excellent fighter. I'm still not sure whether I have him as the best fighter since Leonard. Roy Jones in his prime was better p4p for me and Pacquiao has a better resume & was an 8 weight division world champion, but I'm certainly not gonna argue with anyone who disagrees.

Awful human being though.

McConor...uhhh...Gregory, yeah that was some funny shit! I don't think it was exactly scripted like that. Floyd just has the control to make Conor tire himself out and that is what he did. Took him longer to get the tko than I thought but McGregory is tough. I like the change in his demeanor when he takes an L. He always looks like a bum haha! Conor was sitting there thinking "Son, I've just made us a LOT of MONEY!!!" But his own baby wouldn't look his way like he didn't even want to see stupid-grin beat-up daddy looking like that!

this fight was a circus psy op from the beginning, McGregor was never going to win and never had a chance. however they let him talk himself up and talked him up, so when mayweather handed his ass to him, half or more of England's males would of been very happy to see the uppity irish fighter being beaten. Now then the demonstration of 'experience' vs 'youth' , of respecting authority plays out.. (even though they both carried on like schoolboys) everyone tut tutts like they know whats what about scrapping/fighting whatever n feels all macho.. with strong re inforement of existing social archetypes occurring because of this sort of psy op behaviour.

meanwhile important issues go un noticed and this sort of talk takes the steam out of other social interactions between people. the blokes have n argument about this n then need to feel matey over a beer n talk about something they agree on. people don't like to disagree too much

Boxing takes speed, skill, stamina, agility, strength and finesse, all at the same time. You have to train your whole body and mind, to above the best of it's ability. It is a very disciplined sport.
Football on the other hand, now that's a vile sport.

Concerning blood and circus if you look at the ring of some fights they have the monster energy drink logo on the canvas sometimes as a sponsor and that logo is made up of three hebrew vav symbols which each represent the number 6 so there is literally 666 on the canvas

Energy flows where attention goes and peoples energy is being focussed on big spectacles

Max Igan pointed out that the www at the start of web addresses is also 666 as vav represents the letter w

So there are forces at work building and controlling all of these arenas including this cyber realm we are talking over here
