I wonder if jujitsu and Gracie ruined mma. Then again the UFC is doing damn well so I guess Gracie didn't ruin mma.
That press conference was such a circus. Just fight. I hope this fight doesn't turn into the one like Ali vs thr Japanese wrestler. Co or is stupid for thinking he can go one dimensional and beat Mayweather. I think Conor can kill Mayweather in the Octagon but not in a boxing ring.
I wouldn't pay $100 to watch any athletic event. Both the combatants seem like such obnoxious men that I am quite indifferent to the outcome. Since Mayweather is heavily favored, I have a natural tendency to root for the underdog, but then I ordinarily would favor a boxer over a mixed martial artist, so that kind of balances things out. Although all the smart money seems to be on Mayweather, McGregor does have a substantial advantage in size and youth. I think the latter may have a "puncher's chance."
wait, you thought an undefeated fighter who drew with Wilder in his previous fight was washed up?
Plus his new trainer is a disciple of Emanuel Steward(his nephew) and had him focused on their aggressive fight plan. Wilder can't fight moving backwards.
All of that was pretty moot once Wilder got hit with that right on the ear. He never recovered.
Yes Wilder is a poor loser.
Boxing audiences have changed since it moved from terrestrial TV and the number of governing bodies multiplied. The UK active boxing audience has a large element of chavs and semi-criminal types prepared to pay £25 to watch a fight at 4 or 5 in the morning. The rest of the population can get a good night’s sleep and then watch a recording of the fight for free the following day.Fury and Wilder was actually promoted amongst the sports bars in my area. Not sure how people from British time can actually watch it given it was aimed for Pacific time.
If you want technique, watch the lower weight classes. Did you watch the entire fight? As a heavyweight fight it is up there.
PBF = Floyd Mayweather?The best fighter of this generation, PBF, won't see one of his fights go down as an all time great.
2 of his most dominant fights were PBF vs Chico Corrales....PBF vs Gatti? All time greats? Hardly. Yet his technique and skills in those 2 fights were amazing. This coming from someone who thought Chico would win that fight!
