RE: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is August 26th 2017
Considering McGregor has only gone the 5 round distance in the UFC once, I think it's going to be pretty tough for him to go 12 rounds. He did 5, 5min rounds in the Nate Diaz rematch and won the decision... but 12, 3min rounds is a whole different animal to tackle. Other than a 3 round decision vs Max Holloway, EVERY other fight he's had has been over in 2 rounds or less. His average fight time is probably around 7-8 minutes.

I would expect Conor to come out like a house on fire in the first couple rounds, and if/when Floyd survives the initial barrage and avoids getting hit flush like he's so good at, Conor will start to wear out. Then by mid fight when Conor has slowed down, Floyd can go to the body and start to wear down Conor and really test his cardio. Like you say, IF he can last 12 rounds that would be HUGE, but I think an early "magical" KO would be likelier than Conor going 12. The Over/under is at 9.5 rounds so it's tricky, as Floyd is usually a 12 round fighter, but its definitely crazy to expect a 1st time boxer to go the distance vs an all time great.
