RE: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is August 26th 2017
Robin Black gives an interesting take on the fight, and there are certain intangibles with McGregor, that while he should lose this fight, he isn't without a decent shot.

The interesting thing that Robin Black says, and he's right, is that specialisation, after a certain period of time can get bloated and you can have guys training years without any outside force causing change.

Conor's one intangible in this fight is that he's an outside force, and there is at least in a theoretical sense, merit to the attributes he is bringing to the fight outside of age, size and length.

If I was to pick what Conor will look like in the ring (Not in ability but style) - It will be an exaggerated version of Kostya Tszyu. He 'almost' boxes like an MMA fighter in both distance control and shot selection.

He snipes from the outside alot like Conor, packs big power and has a much wider stance than your typical boxer.

If you watch Kostya versus Judah and listen to the commentary: It's a perfect example of what Robin Black was talking about. A bloated elite which define 'what is good' based on rigid criteria, and the result is that they miss basic things that were staring them in the face all along.
