Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have offically confirmed their highly anticipated boxing match that has been rumored for the better part of a year. The fight will almost surely shatter all existing pay-per-view records and make both fighters a ton of cash, but will the actual fight be any good?
Colin doesn’t think so, primarily because in order to make it happen, McGregor had to surrender any tactical advantage he might have by agreeing to a straight boxing match. He agreed to these concessions because he’s getting a massive stack of cash. You can’t blame him.
It’s like Steph Curry agreeing to a Slam Dunk contest against LeBron James. Both are big names, but you don’t need a crystal ball to predict how it would end. The same applies to McGregor and Mayweather in a boxing match. If you’re essentially agreeing to get embarrassed, you should it least get paid.
Vegas is giving McGregor a 14% chance to win the fight. Colin thinks that’s charitable. Enjoy the press conferences leading up to the fight because they’ll be better than the fight itself.
