McGregor vs Pacquio

I hope it happens and without all the BS that surrounded the Mayweather fight.

IMHO this would be another stupid "money grab" fight.

McGregor has already proven he is not a world class boxer and received a kingly sum to do it.

No way would I spend money to see his cardio fade out and watch him turn into a punching bag for a retired boxing legend.

Micks got a chance. He won a few rounds and has potential. If he trains to box 12 rounds he should do pretty good. I'd watch because I haven't seen Pacman perform to hot in any of his last fights. I'd rather see McGregor fight an up and comer or belt holder. How about GGG!!!

Maybe to liven things up a bit this bout should be set in a Scottish Castle, and the Duke of Argyll can be his corner man.

Because Triple G would absolutely destroy McGregor.

If this fight comes to fruition and Connor gets one more big payday, does he retire after the fight?

The first time Pac goes to the body McG drops to the ground gasping. It would not be a fight. It would be a show and for money.

McGregor is not a professional level boxer period. Full stop.

He is a damn good fighter and an champion level MMA fighter. He is not a professional level and certainly not a champ level boxer.

If they use MMA rules and get into a cage to fight I'll watch that. Otherwise I'll save myself the cash and watch WWE .

It's looking like Connor's next fight will be in the UFC.
