    It isn't criticism. I have no issues with him attempting to make money. Anyone who thinks his public 'money' persona is the real him is deluded. His job is entertainment. These events are no different to him doing advertisements or endorsements.

    Why not call him by his name? He is a superstar, after all. No way to deny it, really. :conf

    I was referring to Mayweather. If you are talking about Conner Mcgregor, I don't know anything about him to make comment. Western MMA isn't followed in my country.

    Yeah that's good for him and UFC and all that and he might be a bigger star than any boxer, but he is not a boxer so he is not the biggest thing in boxing. I like to see his fights but other than that I can't stand him.

    Of course that's what would happen. Floyd would never agree to an MMA fight. This isn't a hard thing to figure out guys, boxing match McGregor gets punked. MMA match Floyd gets punked.

    this is such a silly conversation, but if it were to happen, it'd definitely be a boxing match. and if it's a boxing match, mcgregor is definitely getting hatton'd. bank that. guys gas tank would fail him and floyd would merc him.

    It always makes me laugh when Floyd talks about how long he "reigned" at the "top":

    "I didn't know he was undefeated, I didn't know he reigned in MMA for 20 years and was undefeated, and was world champion in five different weight classes. That's something I didn't know."​

    Mayweather retired. Multiple times. Reigning at the top doesn't work like that mate. If you retire then not only are you not at the top, you're not even in the game. If we're being generous and say that Floyd's time at the top started after he beat Hernandez then seeing as he retired after the fight with Oscar that makes his time at the top around 9 years not 20. 9 years is admirable. It's good. Maybe even very good. But it's not 20.

    You can't just airbrush retirements out of someone's career whether it's boxing or any other job.

    Exactly! Whoever picks the territory wins. That's why i don't see why people get so wrapped up in these fantasy matchups between fighters of two different sports.

    I don't believe this man believes the shit he says. He just plays the anti-Floyd role for the camera.

    "The aggressor wins the round" :lol: Yeah just come forward and you win.

    I would love to see Conor's power in boxing gloves. Everyone looks like a power puncher when they wear 4 oz.

    So many damn casuals are saying this, they only recently learned what a check hook is in MMA (Joe Rogan still constantly calls it wrong)

    Connor would just humiliate him at the press conferences..

    But Floyd would win.

    Conor should sign to fight him in a boxing match and when the fight starts, just take him to the ground and break his legs.

    Ojay Abrahams did that against Wayne Alexander. Well, he didn't take him down, but he did headbutt him and knee him in the balls

    I think MMA fans make the mistake of thinking boxers will rely only on their fists if the shit hits the fan, they also severly underestimate the punching power of boxers...because they wear "pillows on their fists" after all

    this is a great mini rivalry between a journeyman who went on to have over 100 losses against a guy who went on to have one of the most famous and fiersome knockouts of recent history

    Seriously......how the hell did Skip Bayless and Stephen A Smith EVER get on TV? It is pathetic! Shannon Sharpe starts out pretty good but then gets pretty annoying himself. I thought "professional" sportscasters were supposed to be unbiased and not just talk about their hatreds or love affairs with certain athletes
