Floyd Mayweather's win ensures boxing lives to fight another day...barely

Floyd Mayweather Conor McGregor

The world will be watching because controversy and curiosity sells.

Mayweather, who hasn't scored a knockout since stopping Victor Ortiz in 2011, is predicting an early end to the fight. If they don't buy it, they'll be on their phones looking for the result.

Joe Hand runs a promotion company that distributes pay-per-view events to bars and restaurants throughout the United States. Will Floyd Mayweather knock McGregor out?

$99.95 - The cost to order a high-definition broadcast of the fight on pay-per-view.

Bieber does not see Mayweather knocking out McGregor. He suggested McGregor was "getting IV bags" to keep from getting dehydrated and drained. It's not likely, but it's not impossible.

"I give Conor a one in ten chance of winning this fight".

"I just want to thank the fans", he said mockingly, to a chorus of boos. "He needs to think about himself in this fight, because if he gets seriously injured, he might not ever be the same fighter or he might not even fight again".

Mayweather is 49-0 and has won 12 world titles in five weight classes.

Mayweather, who bombarded McGregor with expletives and homophobic slurs during last month's frenzied publicity blitz, did not swear once during Wednesday's news conference. Fans will boo and hiss.

Mayweather has never stopped training, Casal said, and he's in shape.

But Adam Lorenz, Saskatoon MMA fighter, says 153-pound Conor McGregor will take the victory.

Ray Casal, Niagara Falls boxing coach extraordinaire and expert in the fighting arts, doesn't think the fight goes the distance.

"I believe "Money" May, that he's going to come out swinging, that he's going to stay right in his face".

This aggression by McGregor is usually followed by a big performance, but it remains to be seen if it's a good omen this time out. "It comes down to the fighters".

This all sounds terrific. We roll in and we take over wherever we want.

That being said, the money that both Mayweather and McGregor make from the fight may not match what the two projected during the build-up.

"Conor is a fighter, but he's not a boxer".

William Hill said the biggest bet it had received on McGregor so far came on July 24, when a bettor staked $150,000 on the Irishman, setting up a potential $662,500 windfall if Mayweather loses. We talked a lot, now it is the time to fight, " said Mayweather. Interesting. It's as if he knows something the rest of us don't.
