Connor does not stand a chance, no matter how good martial artist he is, or one of the best in the world, he is no match for Floyd in boxing.

My bet is second round knockout.

Mayweather has never been known for knockout power - with brittle hands to boot - and McGregor has a solid jaw. Why would you ever bet on a Mayweather KO, even with traditional boxing rules? That's the last outcome I'd bet on.

Because (under boxing rules) he'll hit McGregor 50 times for each time McGregor hits him. Knockouts don't just come from hard punches. They come from an accumulation of punches. Ray Robinson, Muhammand Ali, Ray Leonard, Vasyl Lomachenko - rarely won with one punch KO's. But they bust your face up with their punches, until your will to continue is diminished.

The above video isn't directed towards you, The Father. Just trying to bring some levity into the discussion.

A stoppage bet makes sense, even a DQ bet given sufficient odds like Merenguero suggested back in the other boxing thread... but a Mayweather KO? I don't see it. I'm not one to overestimate Mcgregor's ability, but he's gotten to the top of his sport by hitting guys and being hit and he seems to be in possession of significant willpower and toughness. He's not just some crazy conditioned football player who's tough but inexperienced with combat - there's still considerable overlap that's going to likely prevent McGregor from being KO'd.

Having said all that, I think we both agree that Floyd's mastery of boxing are insurmountable in a boxing match. I'll be looking at these prop bets very carefully.
