Mayweather-McGregor “Super Fight II?” – McGregor says he “knows” he’d get the win if he fought Floyd again

Conor McGregor - Do we really want to go through it all again? The hype, the circus atmosphere and the actual (surprisingly entertaining, even competitive for a few rounds) fight itself caused quite a stir, but is there any need to see a return fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor?

Do we really want to go through it all again? The hype, the circus atmosphere and the actual (surprisingly entertaining, even competitive for a few rounds) fight itself caused quite a stir, but is there any need to see a return fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor?

Mayweather, who “retired” after scoring a tenth-round win that earned him a staggering $100 million payday, could well be calling McGregor up in the future, for a rematch – this is what McGregor told a gathering in Glasgow yesterday (as filmed by MMA Fighting.)

George Foreman on Mayweather-McGregor: “All of the media should apologise for the all the negative things they were saying about the fight”

Conor McGregor - Heavyweight great George Foreman was involved in a number of great rumbles during his two careers, a number of them deserving of Fight of The Year honours, and “Big” George, who perhaps enjoyed the recent Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight more than most, says all those people who criticised the bout should “apologise for all the negative things they were saying about the fight.” Foreman says the fight delivered plenty of action and was far more competitive than anyone had predicted.

Mayweather – McGregor and the World of Fake News

Conor McGregor - Cosmin Minea	- In a world where fantasy movies are the most popular, and where the president of America is a proven fact-maker or fact-shaper or as some might call him, even an outright liar, the world of sports has also boarded the fantasy train.

Cosmin Minea – In a world where fantasy movies are the most popular, and where the president of America is a proven fact-maker or fact-shaper or as some might call him, even an outright liar, the world of sports has also boarded the fantasy train.

The fight between the multiple boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and the mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor has been the richest, heaviest promoted sporting event in history but also a fantasy or if you prefer, an outright lie.

Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor might just have broken the pay-per-view record in boxing

Conor McGregor - Those people in charge with tallying up the numbers are edging closer to a final, official number as far as how many buys the August 26 “Money Fight” between Floyd Mayweather Junior and Conor McGregor managed to pull in.

Those people in charge with tallying up the numbers are edging closer to a final, official number as far as how many buys the August 26 “Money Fight” between Floyd Mayweather Junior and Conor McGregor managed to pull in.

Earlier this week, Dana White stated how the fight had managed a staggering 6.5 million – worldwide – and now, Showtime’s Stephen Espinoza says that while it’s still too early to say for sure that Mayweather-McGregor knocked Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao off the top spot (4.6 million buys in May of 2015), “the record is definitely within reach.”

Why Floyd Mayweather Jr. Could Be ‘TBE’

Conor McGregor - 'The Best Ever'. Three small words, yet they carry a ton of weight in today's boxing landscape. When we survey the talent from past generations, each era has a list of candidates. And each candidate has a growing list of fans eager to plant their flag in the sand and declare their guy as the man! As great as they all were, each came with his own set of strengths and weaknesses. Some had speed, but no chin. Others had a chin and no power. Some were blessed with both power and speed, yet limited skill and stamina prevented them from reaching this peak. All of these talents were profound enough to put cheeks-in-seats, but at the highest level, star power alone isn't quite enough to claim the mantle.

(A letter to a friend about the McGregor vs Maywether fight the other night)

I did not watch the fight the other night. I had my reasons but I have many friends and family that did. One friend (Greg) in particular who loves Conner McGregor and MMA was really into the whole event. He’s a great guy! After the fight he immediately called me insisting that McGregor did better than anyone had expected and said how proud he was of him.

Conor McGregor - As fight fans know, Floyd Mayweather Junior reached the incredible milestone of 50-0 as a pro boxer on Saturday night with his stoppage win over a debut-making Conor McGregor.

One of these people is Rocky Marciano Junior, who told The New York Post that in his opinion Mayweather’s 50th win came in an “exhibition” bout and that Floyd’s 50-0 record should have one big asterisk placed on it.

Conor McGregor - MMA star Conor McGregor lost in his extraordinary debut as a pro boxer, but he was widely expected to do so seeing as he was facing TBE, the now officially retired Floyd Mayweather Junior.
