I was highly entertained by the press tour, but I also know Connor is going to get worked. I hope it's a remotely entertaining fight, but since it's Mayweather, it will likely be a snoozer.

I suspect it'll be a clown show, like the promo tour has been.

Didn't ali "fight" a wrestler once? IIUC, the wrestler laid down in the middle of the ring and tried to kick ali for about four rounds.

If the conner / mayweather fight were in my back yard, i'd close the drapes.

Some interest in the GGG fight in august.

Want to see the where they got the idea for this fight? Go watch great white hype.

This is a brilliant marketing ploy to get a bunch of people a pile of cash....the fighters being on the low end of that scale. In the end it's a scam, but they've made people believe it's some sort of superfight and they will pay to see it.

I'll watch it on Youtube. But the buildup has been great entertainment.

I want to say Ali fought Andre the Giant, and I think I saw it as a little kid, but then again I might have dreamt the whole thing.

I am watching the undercard so far on Periscope for $0

Pretty good fight. I think we learned boxer punch harder than UFC guys.

Seems about right. Floyd took a couple rounds to do inventory on what Connor had. After the third round, Mayweather boatraced him. The ref was correct to stop the fight.

I never expected McGregor to go 10 rounds. I figured he'd try to knock him out early. Failing that, he was screwed.
