It aint a joke, we saw how May vs Pac hurt boxing, its not unrealistic that Mayweather vs McGregor can hurt boxing. It not outside the realm of truth. IF mayweather loses to mcgregor it can be bad. But it can also be bad in terms of hardcore fans, we saw ALL the PPVS drop after Mayweather vs Pac fight. So maybe "casuals" don't like bullshit, maybe hardcore fans don't either.
But on the unrelated note of Oscar, he's clearly picked up the trade from Arum and Haymon. He's doing exactly what they do and playing from there playbook. Disgraceful
It is foolish to think that there aren't a ton of people out there who don't want to see Floyd vs Conor because the numbers will be astounding. Why is it that because it's Floyd everyone is against it?
When James Toney crossed over to fight Randy Couture in the Octagon/MMA no one was against it and everyone tuned it to see what happened, but because it's Mayweather and all y'all hate him then that somehow in your mind makes you uninterested in this fight.
Hypocrites, I'm sure if Canelo said he was going to face McGregor in the Octagon then everyone would be saying how much they want to see what happens, or if it was Triple G then everyone would be saying how great of a match up it is.
If you don't want to watch it then it's real simple, don't buy it or don't watch it. However, if you claim to be a REAL/TRUE Boxing Fan then you will tune in regardless of how much of a mismatch or sham it is because it will take place in a Boxing Ring with one guy at least being a Master Boxer who will show everyone the real Art of Boxing and not some simple Cavemen standing and trading blows while bleeding profusely purely for lack of defensive skills and being entertaining.
I will watch the fight if and when it happens, and if I can get it for free then I will be even more willing to watch it.
Those who say they're not interested or won't watch it then you are a turncoat to your sport, this won't be the first time we've seen a gross mismatch in boxing and surely won't be the last. It's about as much a mismatch for Floyd vs McGregor as it was for Randy Couture vs Toney and everyone still watched that fight.
