Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0, 26 KOs), the best boxing personality in this generation, against Conor McGregor, a mixed-martial artist with no professional boxing record whatsoever. Who will win this spectacle that no one ever imagined happening? Dan Rafael and Brett Okamoto (Boxing and MMA experts) agreed that it’s going to be a long night for Conor McGregor against Floyd Mayweather.


DAN RAFAEL: Floyd Mayweather already manifested the art of boxing: to hit and not to get hit. He retired on 2015, and that period of time, he owned the best boxing plus for 24.5 plus/minus rating, per CompuBox. He landed 43.4 percent of his punches, while opponents landed only 18.9 percent. Floyd gets the advantage.

BRETT OKAMOTO: Conor McGregor is good in defense but it’s not gonna help him. Honestly, a striking defense is not he’s known for. FightMetric’s statistics for McGregor’s defense is just 57 percent of strikes during his career in UFC, worse than any other male champ. Mayweather gets the advantage for me.


D: The count for Mayweather’s knockout in his whole career is only 26 out of the 49 fights, so he goes 12 rounds as the rest of us breathe. He’s stroll through 12 rounds in his past seven fights and 12 of his 14. Since his 17th fight, every bout but one has been set for championship distance. Floyd gets the advantage.

B: In the MMA, we can never deny that Conor McGregor is one of the most violent fighters in the UFC. He has ended the half of his pro opponent bouts inside the opening round. Very impressive, it’s a good argument but the advantage will still stay with Floyd.


D: Floyd conquer it all, has seen everything in the name of boxing. As a virtuoso in this sport, he has already faced almost every big name in his time and done it well in the stage. Advantage goes to Floyd.

B: The roots of McGregor started with boxing, in Ireland’s Crumlin Boxing Club, He’s always had comfort in the pocket, which he honored in his boxing years as an amateur. That said, he’s agreed to the difference of the rules which is pretty big. He’s also facing one of the best ever. The Advantage is on Floyd again.


D: Easy work for Mayweather, who’ll see what McGregor has for few rounds. McGregor will end up tiring himself from his own shots that may give Mayweather’s chance knock him off in the 7th round.

B: Mayweather will get the pressure to win big plus the willingness of McGregor to take the chances should be an equally rare knockout. Mayweather will KO Conor at the 11th.

WHILE many felt Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor in their first world visit faceoff, the Irish UFC star has been pronounced a staggering champ in the second portion. 

The principal question and answer session in Los Angeles on Wednesday was touchy however things went to an unheard of level in the second stop in Toronto on Thursday (AEST). 

After apparently being found napping a day before, McGregor turned out all weapons blasting with a dazzling opening location (watch it underneath!) 


McGregor was made to tend to arrange for just about 10 minutes by a late Mayweather yet the Irishman unmistakably appreciated the huge dominant part of help from a close limit swarm at Toronto's 15,000-limit Budweiser Stage. 

The genuine firecrackers began when the McGregor took the mouthpiece, which worked this time around. 

The UFC star was enraged his mic sound had been cut in the last phases of Wednesday's LA question and answer session and he started his address in Toronto with a staggering assault on the Mayweather family, and telecaster Showtime. 

"Does this mic work?! Well then flop that mic!" he stated, crushing it to the ground. 

McGregor at that point lead the consistent pack in a serenade of "flop the Mayweathers" before propelling a dazzling individual assault on Showtime official Stephen Espinoza in front of an audience. 

"And keeping in mind that we're busy, flop Showtime as well. Take a gander at you flocking weasel, I recognize it clearly — you're little bunch," McGregor impacted at Espinoza. 

"Cut my mic off? Cut the champ's mic off? Goodness. You flocking weasel (Espinoza) and you flocking bunch (Mayweather). 

"They're endeavoring to set me up every step of the way over here. They're attempting to place me in an awkward position yet I flourish in awkward positions. 

… "I'm not flocking taking off! I'm not getting off this mic. I need him (Mayweather) to come and to take this mic off me. Else I'm assuming control over this entire ship. It's ideal here, stop me. You won't do ship." 

McGregor likewise hit out at his numerous cynics and impacted Mayweather as "boxing's greatest bunch" 

"Last time I was here (Toronto) I was likewise on a world visit. I was likewise confronting an unconquerable journey … Jose Aldo," he said. 

"They said an indistinguishable things then from they're stating now. They said I had no possibility. They said I'm in a tough situation. They said he kicks too hard, has excessively numerous weapons.

Despite the fact that Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have finished their four public interviews before their battle at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 26th, the limited time visit proceeds. On Thursday, UFC president Dana White went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss "the greatest battle in battle sports history" and the wild press visit that arrived at its decision a week ago. 

As a matter of first importance, White assessed McGregor's odds against Mayweather. White has just addressed that inquiry a few times this month, however he multiplied down on the possibility that McGregor just needs one of his punches to associate for him to pull off the surprise. White additionally said that Mayweather has a past filled with battling against left-gave contenders, which actually plays into McGregor's hands. 

"Tune in, when you put two individuals together anyplace – here, anyplace – and they begin tossing punches, the sky is the limit. Floyd Mayweather will be 41 years of age this year. On the off chance that there is a crimp in that defensive layer, it has been with southpaws," White disclosed to Jimmy Kimmel. "Conor McGregor is a southpaw. He is 28 years of age and he hits like a truck. He has got 12 rounds to arrive that punch. When he hits individuals, they go. Also, in the event that he hits Floyd, I think he will hurt him. Also, when he harms individuals, he puts them away." 

White was then asked to what extent Mayweather would last on the off chance that he ventured into an Octagon with McGregor: "Three seconds," he said. "That thing would be over genuine speedy." 

"The thing is that tossing punches is a piece of what we do in the UFC, and Conor McGregor can toss some punches," White proceeded. "That child hits hard. The certainty this person has in himself is mind boggling. I haven't seen anything like this since Muhammad Ali. … Floyd would take several leg kicks and that would be the finish of that." 

McGregor, obviously, can't utilize any MMA strategies against Mayweather one month from now. White has made it clear that Mayweather would "demolish Conor's life" with a claim in the event that he endeavors to do anything outside of the guidelines of boxing. That still hasn't prevented some from thinking about how a battle would go down between them if there weren't any principles, however. 

At long last, White said that, after some theory, President Donald Trump won't see the battle face to face. White told journalists a week ago that Trump is "100 percent inspired by going to the occasion," yet doing as such would conceivably destroy it, given the required level of security. It's the reason Trump didn't go to UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden a year ago when McGregor turned into the UFC's lightweight champion by thumping Eddie Alvarez out in the second round.

The exceptional survey encounter originates from an assertion between Fathom Events and Mayweather Promotions, which have collaborated to give comparable chances to Money's earlier sessions.

"The buzz that my battle against Conor McGregor is getting has been extraordinary as of now, so what better approach to watch this overwhelming occasion than on the wide screen?" Mayweather said. "We took boxing back to motion picture theaters eight years prior, and it was a gigantic achievement. Be that as it may, this occasion is on an alternate level, and I'm so happy we are giving fans another approach to see all the activity. Snatch your popcorn since this is a battle nobody will need to miss."

Mayweather, a 49-0 five-division boxing champion, and McGregor, the UFC lightweight champion, as of late finished seven days in length overall media visit to advance the battle.

In spite of the fact that it's vague how the MMA star will perform outside the limits of the Octagon, the buildup encompassing the cross-don fight has kept on developing.

The battle is anticipated to round up $606.1 million in income, barely short of the $623.5 million made by Mayweather's disappointing May 2015 super fight with Manny Pacquiao, per Darren Rovell of ESPN.com.

A significant part of the development of the battle has played out like a motion picture content, as a relatively obscure from Ireland who rapidly ascended through the battle positions has earned an enormous payday against one of the best boxers in the historical backdrop of the game who'll be searching for a point of reference 50th triumph.

There's no better man to get some information about what an MMA contender can convey to the boxing ring than Joseph Duffy.

Been there, done that, the Donegal contender has no enthusiasm for coming back to the ring. In his own particular words, it simply wasn't for him. It's a to some degree astonishing proclamation from a man who went undefeated in seven expert sessions in the wake of exchanging his 4 oz gloves for 10 oz ones.

MMA is the game that he cherishes, despite the fact that he conceded he would be occupied with contending in catching. With the ascent of advancements, for example, Submission Underground, it has turned out to be progressively in vogue for MMA stars to swear off the strikes and test their abilities in accommodation hooking.

The energy in Duffy's voice when he addressed SportsJOE recommends he wouldn't be excessively troublesome, making it impossible to persuade to sign him up for a hooking match.

"No doubt certainly is something I've contemplated. When I was more youthful I used to contend all the time whether it be catching, kickboxing battles, I'd be contending essentially consistently. So I certainly feel that it causes you enhance and it keeps you sharp."

"It's something that I'm unquestionably keen on. Anything that I believe will enhance my amusement will be fascinating."

Duffy went straight from proficient MMA to proficient boxing, picking against attempting his hand at beginner pugilism first. Originating from a prize battling foundation on the European MMA scene, he saw a few likenesses, yet transitioning to a radically new game required some investment.

"Clearly there were a few things that were comparable. I was accustomed to battling in Cage Warriors at that stage. That appeared like a greater show – more lights, more scope, that sort of thing, so that was sufficiently simple to manage, however, it was an alternate game out and out. It took no less than six months to a year prior to I could truly get satisfactory. Boxing is an alternate diversion."

The expertise set he amassed by carrying on with the life of an understudy of hand to hand fighting positively helped him on his attempt. He found that a great deal of the systems transitioned from the confine to the ring.

"Gracious definitely (preparing in MMA helps in the secure). Indeed, even in the striking abilities, on the off chance that you have a better than average level of striking it crosses over. I think MMA warriors are great for the sustenance and the weight cut and that kind of thing. I believe there's a great deal of stuff that traverses."

Having knowledge in both the universes of MMA and boxing, there is no better man to give an interpretation of Conor McGregor's aggressive boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather than Duffy.

Despite the fact that he accepts there are an excessive number of factors in play to anticipate how the session will go down, Duffy has most likely finished who might win. He anticipates that it will be extremely uneven for the man contending in his own domain.

"I simply think Mayweather will win pretty convincingly. Regardless of whether he stops him or not, is another story. I certainly feel it's an avalanche to Mayweather."

"I don't know (whether Mayweather completes McGregor). We've never observed Conor box. There's unquestionably things to take a gander at there. It's difficult to gage. Clearly, Conor's never battled somebody of that level in a fight. I assume until the point that it happens, none of us understand how it will go down."

None of us understand… more genuine words were never talked.

Three down, one to go.

We were dealt with to one more night of anarchy last night as Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather conflicted in New York.

Be that as it may, after the energy in Toronto, this question and answer session neglected to satisfy the buildup.

McGregor began well, conveying a Notorious BIG rap, however it was downhill from that point.

The Irishman tended to the possibility that he had been supremacist in the previous occasions by proclaiming himself half dark – starting from the waist.

Mayweather additionally battled for new material and at one phase coaxed his company on to the phase where there was a concise fight with McGregor in the center.

The boxing legend made it rain – as he tossed cash around on the stage – yet McGregor rushed to call attention to they were $1 bills.

Recap all the activity with Mirror Sport…

The combine of them has run out thoughts I'm apprehensive.

After the fervor of Toronto, that was a flop – I do trust London can convey something better later on today.

McGregor beyond any doubt appeared to be irate up there, most likely not helped by Mayweather taking his group to the stage.

The cash was okay however, I presume.

Mayweather goes out for a stroll along the organize as the two groups go up against each other with McGregor in the center.

Presently he's shadow boxing. McGregor is back on the mic, disclosing to Mayweather's group topic up to the dollar notes.

They're exchanging affronts now, Mayweather is calling McGregor an eejit and a stripper – no, me not one or the other.

Time to wrap this up I figure, it's getting exhausting…

What's more, will do the go head to head…

While we hold up…

Why not help yourself to remember McGregor's mind blowing rage the previous evening.

His "1,2,3… f*** the Mayweathers' will live long in the memory…

Is it true that you are prepared for additional?

There is nothing very like Conor McGregor when he has the unhealthy obsession – and a kid was he on one final night.

The Irishman made that big appearance in Toronto to attack Floyd Mayweather and the Showtime TV officials, and it was a significant sight.

You can watch his rage in full at the highest point of this page as we look forward to what we can anticipate from today around evening time's leg of the press visit.

Mayweather and McGregor will fly into New York for the penultimate show as we achieve the midpoint.

With a comparative organization foreseen, there will most likely be more abuse exchanged between the two greatest names in battle brandish.
