RE: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is August 26th 2017
Talk of them fighting in 8oz gloves, at McGregor's request. This will work in the favour of whichever fighter is faster, more accurate, and whose defense is less reliant on taking punches on the gloves. That fighter is Mayweather. I'd guess that McGregor is basically operating on the basis that he's going to get stopped anyway, but the smaller gloves increase his odds of a lucky punch doing the business.

The McGregor boxing strategy:

Get lucky.

lol

--------------------------

I'm chuckling at dudes who think McGregor is going to bring a "new style" to boxing.

That sort of comment belies an ignorance of the sport. People keep saying boxing is dead and stilted, but they're totally to blind the quiet renaissance that is going in boxing at the lower weight classes.

If you really pay attention we have a lot of amazing fighters right now who don't get amazing press because they're not over 200 pounds and knock out artists.

GGG, Canelo, Lomanchenko and a few others are legitimately exciting and technical fighters. They're all insane and they're all very unique fighters who have styles we have not seen in a long time--but everyone thinks Mcgregor is going to be the one to bring a new style to boxing. Give me a break.

The real fight is going to be GGG vs Canelo.

I will be checking my PMs weekly, so you can catch me there. I will not be posting.

RE: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is August 26th 2017
This sort of match is really a step back for MMA. You ask the competitor to come to your house (the cage) if you're McGregor and not the other way around. Floyd has all the cards here and controls the outcome.

Once he wins this he can silence a lot of the casual haters who always bring up MMA vs boxing.

Floyd is just going to dance around Conor and jab him to death like he always does with every opponent.

I really doubt Conor will hit anything but it would be funny if he just said fuck it and took Floyd down and ground and pounded him to pulp. That's pretty much how it would go down out in the parking lot.

Then mainstream sports pundits will call boxing the "ultimate combat sport" and spew on and on about it.

Im guessing if Conor tried that he would not only lose his paycheck but be banned but several state commissions for life.

Floyd's people will never leave those details out of the contract.

Ye, McGregor is going to have to fight this fairly. You don't amass a fortune like Mayweather's without some seriously shrewd guys around you. Nothing but respect for McGregor; he's going to take a huge beating and be humiliated, but he's going to set himself and his family up for life.

How is he going to be humiliated?

The GOAT in defensive boxing beats a guy from a different sport? How embarrassing.

Everyone knows/will know that in a street fight Money would be damaged beyond all repair.

I'd take Floyd in a street fight because he always has his crew with him.

RE: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is August 26th 2017
The only reasons why I think McGregor could win is because
.1) father time: Mayweather is 40 and his speed &technique will be slower/less crisp as ever
2) he's getting AMOG'd: If the press conference trash talk was a fight McGregor would win by KO. This is the first time Floyd has dealt with somebody who could literally beat the shit out of him in a real fight and it shows in his body language he's afraid when McGregor talks trash. This mental edge could lead to Floyd slipping up and McGregor landing that haymaker he needs to stifle Floyd and possibly KO him.
3) Pressure Burst Pipes: Mayweather has a lot to lose. His perfect record.His legacy. His health ( his body has been through a lot particularly his hands). With McGregor in his head he could slip up and get KO'd. Not to mention he needs this money for Tax liens.

Growth Over Everything Else.

Hate him all you want, but Mayweather is cunning and has surrounded himself with shrewd people who have mutual interests in maintaining his continued success.

I'd love to see Mcgregor throw a knee or get so frustrated that he relies on muscle memory for a takedown attempt. +1000 on the Mayweather by DQ bet would be a sweet cherry on the -600 bet straight bet.

What good is all of Floyd's money if he can't fuck random girls like we can... He's always carrying around that bag with $1 million, and his crew of goons.
Any girl he fucks could easily get a (((lawyer))) and judge to nail his ass to the wall over whatever she says.

It's almost like LeBron having all that money and status and yet getting mediocre pussy. They're trapped in their lives.

Why do you need a datasheet for this? The line isn't likely to move further than -600, maybe -500 if we're lucky. For those not familiar with betting on boxing, this means you need to bet $600 to win $100, or in the case of -500, $500 to win $100. I'd put Floyd as a 95% favorite and yet these odds are only giving him a roughly 80% chance of winning. That 12-15% spread is a very favorable margin of safety in my opinion.

If you can get past the mental block of receiving much less than even money on a bet - many people struggle with this - you'll make a 16.67-20% return in an hour if Mayweather wins. Personally, I don't think opportunities come around like this very often so I'm going to bet big on Mayweather. If I lose, it'll sting but I won't be on the streets and I'm sure it'll make for a good story for years as I talk about how royally I got screwed on this bet. If I win, I'll likely plow the proceeds into cryptocurrency to hopefully leverage the return even further.

Malignaggi leaving Conor's camps after frustrations over leaked photos showing Conor in a positive light:
http://www.espn.com.au/boxing/story/_/id...ng-partner

   

It's a huge fight, with massive media. He needed to explicitly have that in writing otherwise he was just being ignorant to the process. Conor won't be controlling the media circus. That said: He's a straight talker and is 100% telling the truth re: Whooping Conor. The image that pissed him off was this below:

   

The implication is that Conor dropped him but Paulie stated he was shoved [Which would be closer to the truth]. This wasn't an area I thought about too much but shoving typically only comes with a warning. I imagine we can expect a lot of this on fight night. Floyd on the canvas, irrespective of how he got there looks good for Conor [His chances of winning are 0.01% So the little things add up re saving face].

Damn, you think they would've paid him off a little to go along with the ruse, or at the very least just to keep quiet and exit gracefully. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic that this isn't going affect the betting lines - too many people are emotionally invested in rooting on a Mayweather loss to be put off by something like this. Maybe if a video surfaced of the event where Connor allegedly got KTFO'd by Bradley Wheeler...

I was trying to figure out where I had seen Paulie before McGregor brought him out of the abyss.

He starred in this movie.

There's no incentive for an outright dive. But he could make it last longer than needed...give a reason for a rematch. That's what makes exotic bets hard for this fight, you never know if Floyd is fighting for a potential rematch.

There is plenty incentive for an outright dive, it is called money.

Then it will lead to a part 2 if the gross earning is good.

They flew to London in the same private plane to do the promo.

Can you say con-job.

Floyd is not taking a dive. That's the most ridiculous thing I've read today. Floyd is 49-0 as a professional and that 0 means everything to him, it's his legacy and It's his identity. He loses that 0 they may have to put him on suicide watch. He wants that 50-0.

This was a fake news story, they flew in similiar looking private planes. I don't have time to get the link but I think it was talked about earlier in this thread.

I don't understand why people think that it's even possible for Mayweather to take a dive. From a risk/reward perspective the incentives to lose are way worse than winning. How much would some shadowy figure have to pay Floyd to make it worthwhile?

He's already making $200m off the fight after PPV money comes in, and add that to the $100m he's got in the bank, plus whatever his cars/mansions/bling are worth. What do you need to pay this motherfucker who's worth at least $300m to fix the fight? $500m, $1B cash? That'd be way more than the entire sportsbook pool in Vegas. There's no upside to fixing something like that for a bettor or Mayweather.

See amount of betting on the Superbowl: http://heavy.com/sports/2017/02/how-much...uper-bowl/

If the line stays at -550 to -600 on Mayweather, I'll likely bet 10x my normal bet - too easy to make money all at once on this fight.
