It appears that Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are finally close to agreeing on the financial terms of their mega fight that’s been stuck in the rumor mill for the past year.
Colin thinks the fight itself will be a disaster, but the event will sell record numbers of Pay Per Views because the public always watches interesting and compelling stories.
While Mayweather has been vocal that he’s the top draw on the card, Colin couldn’t disagree more. He doesn’t think guys whose most compelling personality characteristic is their bank account are interesting.
Floyd Mayweather’s all about money. How many people do you know that wear sign on their hats that are fascinating. Floyd Mayweather is not a fascinating personality.”
Colin sees McGregor as the most compelling personality in the either fight game right now, and it’s not even close. In terms of interest in the potential fight, it’s McGregor who will be the draw for fans, even though he’s probably going to get dismantled in the fight.
Colin thinks McGregor’s brash outspoken nature and savant-like fight promotional ability make him this generation’s ‘Greatest’ fight personality.
“Conor McGregor is our Ali.”
Floyd Mayweather needs this fight, and Conor McGregor. He wouldn’t be going through this whole dance if he had another fight on the horizon that anyone gave a damn about watching.
There isn’t one.
This is the game. And the game, right now, is Conor McGregor. Look at the PPV numbers.
