Should be interesting.

Thank god I wasn't planning a trip for that time...
The geniuses who thought HRC was running a child sex ring out of the basement of a pizza shop just can't connect the dots on all this trump-Russia stuff....

It's amazing that such a silly fight will garner so much hype. Will McGregor land a single punch? Ward v Kovalev rematch is this weekend. It's the first time in over 20 years the #1 and #2 pound for pound ranked boxers will fight each other.... aaaaand no one cares.

I like Connor but have zero interest in this fight. Hope he knocks the crap out of Mayweather but I simply don't see it happening.

I care! But not much mainstream attention, sadly. Got kov +150.

Floyd should be 1 to 500. Maybe you could argue 1 to 100 or even 75. You can get him for 1 to 8.

Maybe a few, but I bet he knows how to TAKE a punch. I predict the fight will go the distance, but Mayweather will win on points.

And it will overshadow the Canelo-GGG fight a few weeks later.

But Mayweather knocked out The Big Show with one punch!

My son is a fan of Conor, as are many who know little or nothing of boxing.

I like the sweet science.

Barring an absolute fluke, Floyd will win, and with no uncertainty.

Conor is tough, but being a great striker and grappler may lead to victory in the octagon, but you need boxing skills once you get in the ring.

He's got a couple months to practice, and to learn how to box at this level.

Tough task, very tough task.

"Mayweather a minus-1000 favorite. McGregor is plus-650." speaks volumes.
"What, me worry?"

Years ago, back in the early 1980s, Dennis Rappaport proposed a reality type show to ESPN. In many ways it was ahead of its time. Rappaport , who was Gerry Cooney's manager at the time, proposed taking an unknown guy, giving him access to the very best trainers in the world for a year and then fight for the Heavyweight title. The show would tape 24-7 and for ten weeks or so leading up to the fight it would air weekly.
No one, and I mean no one thought that anyone could take up boxing and learn it well enough in a year to make the fight competitive.
I don't see Connor lasting three rounds, unless Floyd carries him.

What odds can you get on the fight actually happening before Labor Day? This has "the fight was delayed because somebody received an unspecified injury in training, and has absolutely, positively nothing to do with those rumors that McGregor's handlers think he needs more time to train" written all over it.
