McGregor will hardly put a glove on him and Floyd's power will be plenty, especially in smaller gloves, to get the job done early. But anyway let's just wait and see. And fuck technically perfect straight punches, it's about what can land (we could say almost no pro boxers have technically perfect hooks - I mean when do we ever see a perfect amateur weight shifting elbow up to 90 degrees hook in the pros (or the high level amateurs for that matter) - you don't; elbow stays down until it's turned over and most reach with it or it just doesn't land). Pacquiao probably had one of the best straight lefts I've ever seen for a southpaw that came so fast and out of nowhere that even guys like Marquez, who was one of the best at making adjustments I've ever seen, couldn't do a thing about it (and look what Floyd did to Pacquiao).

What people don't seem to get is that Floyd's speed and reflexes, as well as his experience, are absolute leaps and bounds ahead of anything McGregor has ever experienced. People talking about his power meaning that he has a chance have no idea either. It's irrelevant, and I don't think he even has good power compared to heavy hitters in boxing like a Randall Bailey, and who here thinks Randall Bailey would have a chance against Floyd? Come on now.

Its not just power, the reason I predict a knockout is Conor simply won't see many of Floyds punches coming, and the punches not seen do the most damage.
