NEW YORK CITY -- There was no need for Floyd Mayweather Jr. (50-0, 27 KOs) to run away to seal another win.
As boxing's Albert Eisnstein, Mayweather's mass-energy equivalence was his potent jab-straight combo, enough to wreck ambitious mixed martial arts (MMA) boss Gregor McGregor (0-1, 0 KOs) via 10th round technical knockout (TKO) on August 27 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. thinks Kell Brook’s timing is bad with him having to face a very dangerous fighter in unbeaten Errol Spence (21-0, 18 KOs) immediately after his grueling fight against middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin last September.
Brook lost that fight by a 5th round TKO, and he was injured with his right eye socket busting from a hard punch. Brook and Spence will be fighting on May 27, according to Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn. That fight will likely be at Bramall Lane in Sheffield. UK.
Former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. has officially given up on the idea of fighting UFC star Conor McGregor. The 39-year-old Mayweather says he attempted to put the fight together but he couldn’t do it. Why exactly the fight couldn’t get made is unclear, but it might be due to the money.

Floyd Mayweather Jr says Saul “Canelo” Alvarez’s advantage in big fight experience will lead to him knocking out Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in the later rounds this Saturday night in their bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mayweather suggests that because Canelo has been in the ring with himself, Miguel Cotto and Erislandy Lara, it means that he’ll beat Chavez Jr.
Sparking rumors that an official announcement regarding a fight between Conor McGregor, the biggest name in MMA, and Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather is finally imminent, Mayweather’s promotional company has booked the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on both the 25th and 26th of August. This booking has been confirmed on the Hotel and Casino’s website. Mayweather made the MGM his home away from home in fighting no less than the final twelve fights of his career at the venue (beginning with Oscar De La Hoya and ending with Andre Berto), and should a deal between the two be agreed it is difficult to envisage the duel being held anywhere else.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he’s not in favor of having WBO junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez fight middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin right now. Mayweather feels that the fight still needs to be built more before it takes place. He thinks it’s still too early yet for Canelo to be fighting Golovkin.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. appears to have someone in Conor McGregor’s camp that has given him the game plan for how he’ll be trying to beat him on August 26. Mayweather, 40, isn’t saying who gave him McGregor’s game plan, but it looks like he may have a spy in his camp.
It’s not as if Mayweather really needs the secret info on McGregor’s game plan. Aside from McGregor mugging Mayweather on the inside using an MMA attack plan, there’s not much he’s going to be able to do that he hasn’t seen before.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is planning on making it an offensive fight against Conor McGregor on August 26. Mayweather says he owes it to the boxing fans to pay them back for his fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2015, which the fans weren’t pleased with. The fans were upset at both fighters for their lack of aggression.
Mayweather says he’s not going to make it defensive against the 29-year-old McGregor when he meets him on Showtime pay-per-view at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. doesn’t see his fight with Conor McGregor going the full 12 rounds on August 26. Mayweather sees it as a very serious fight that is going to end with one of the two getting knocked out when they meet up on Showtime PPV at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Floyd Mayweather Sr. says he will personally sue Conor McGregor if he chooses to fight dirty and foul Floyd Mayweather Jr. in their fight on August 26. There’s a lot of speculation about whether McGregor will elect to use his MMA skills to knockout or incapacitate Mayweather Jr. in their fight.
Some boxing and MMA fans think McGregor could gain a lot of respect if he were to lose the fight by a disqualification by using one of his UFC fighting techniques to hurt Mayweather. Floyd Sr. says he will not stand for that. He’ll launch a lawsuit on his son’s behalf against McGregor.
Saturday the 26th saw a Mayweather fight plan so sublime it was almost too good for words. Only its execution could be truly descriptive enough to do it justice. In claiming the ‘Golden Fleece’ of boxing by beating the great Rocky Marciano’s record Mayweather stamped his claim to greatness alongside luminaries such as Sugar Ray Leonard, Roy Jones Jr and so on.
As every reader would know by now, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor Mcgregor will face each other in Las Vegas on August 26. Virtually every article or post that I have read about the fight is about Floyd completely dominating Connor and how much of a mismatch this fight is. However, there is still a question that no one seems to be asking, maybe because we simply won’t know the answer until fight night.
