I'm not sure Mayweather will risk what it'll take to win this in the 2nd. The only shot McGregor has is to knock out Mayweather. Doubt Mayweather will open up his D to go for the early finish. I'm also not sure Mayweather has the power to knock out McGregor anymore. He has brittle hands.
With that said, McGregor is going to have to have a lucky flurry to win this thing.
In his mind, I think that Conor is sincerely convinced he's gonna knock out Floyd. I'm not saying that he's gonna get KOed by Mayweather himself - given how usually boring Floyd's fights are - but unless he has a tremendous master plan heading into it, he'll be notoriously - pun intended - humiliated on August 26.
Who else watched this? I did. It was intense. McGregor definitely gets credit for not being afraid to fight anyone. He went out there and fought like a champ. He gave it all he had. I think in the end he lost because he had to hone in his instincts to go full MMA. He hammer punched Mayweather many times and kept getting called on it. For what the gift was, boxing rules and all, it was a great effort by both guys. It was classy seeing them brush it off at the end and hug it out. Great sportsmanship.
McGregor proved everyone wrong. Many expected this to be a CM Punk UFC debut-like debacle but it turned out to be quite a performance by Conor. Mayweather just outsmarted him by letting him punch himself out and then, he took over.
