    Good fight I thought. McGregor didn't embarrass himself and it was entertaining.

    Mayweather played him though. If you watch the post fight press conference McGregor said something interesting things about sparring partners and being able to go the distance.

    I still reckon McGregor had the first 2-3 rounds then it was all mayweather

    I agree with this summary. McGregor came out strong but didn't respect the art of boxing and someone that has been doing it at the highest level for 20 years. Even though he is a fit guy he didn't have anywhere near the cardio of Mayweather. I don't know what he will do next but I can see them doing a rematch for some horrendous amount of money which I won't watch. All in all good entertaining fight.

    Yeah but that was the whole point of this entire exercise to prove that UFC will never get the same respect as boxing does.

    I liken this to a bout between @TANK 2.0 at his peak physically and me at mine..the outcome of an MMA contest would be a win to Tank..but in a boxing match the result would be completely different..just as with Mayweather and McGregor..yes..because a boxing ring has ropes..unlike the octagon which is caged..this means when the bout starts I could much more easily run away..yep slide under those ropes and make a bolt for the exit..the cages on the other hand are too high to escape quickly..unless I go through the door..but I'd probably fumble with the lock as I'd be shaking with fear..

    Get me a pair, size 15 please.

    PS I actually was a boxer for a few years at the PCYC in Cabramatta. First I joined for the training but was a natural at it. I had 16 amateur fights, my record was 13-1-2 with 9 KO's.

    I still believe Cassius clay would annihilate maywether.
    For someone to be the greatest of all time, they would have to be able to beat all contenders. I couldn't even imagine maywether lasting a round with Mike Tyson lol.

    Tyson had power, that was it.

    Mayweather has him on speed.

    Tyson is the best I've ever seen. At his peak he was so quick and always hit like a truck. Most opponents lost before the fight began. He would've squashed Mayweather

    He was fucken unbelievable, I would have loved to see Cassius clay vs Mike Tyson both in their prime. I think that would literally be the greatest fight of all time. Both fast as fuck but completely different styles. Dancing vs weaving lol. I think Tyson would kill Cassius clay if he used the rope a dope style against him. Although he survived the punches from Frazier and foreman who had arguably the strongest punches of all time using the rope a dope tactic

    You'd have to be a complete lunatic to use rope a dope vs Tyson. Permanent brain damage right there

    Well they say Cassius got fucked up (Parkinson onset) from using that style against foreman.
    I watched his 81' fight I think against Holmes and I couldn't believe they even allowed Cassius to fight, he was clearly not normal, the way he'd move and talk and like nothing registered with him, was depressing to watch.

    Tyson only had power when he left his original trainer, he basically became a head hunter,he was insanely fast in his prime. Mayweather is to small anyway, Tyson would of killed him.
