    Childish thread we all know Floyd carried Connor he could have easily blown him away first round and Connor hasn't earned his right for title shot it would make a mockery of what ever organisation promotes this sideshow in my opinion

    Boxing and MMA are two different things. McEgger is a delusional nutjob if he thinks he is going to outbox a top tier boxer.

    At the same time, a good boxer if taken off his feet or absorbing leg kicks is going to out of his element and will probably lose.

    conor did the right thing moving backwards against Floyd because Floyd preffers to counter picking up on fighters leaving openings, he`s not that good at creating his own openings.

    Mayweather carrier McEgger. He could have taken him out pretty much at any time.

    I don't think McEgger lasting the rounds he did due to some strategy or tactics of his.

    He is not a boxer and it showed.

    The same way, put Mayweather in with a world class grappler and have them grappler. What do you think would happen?

    The grappler could do what he wanted to Mayweather.

    The only one who thing McEgger is a world class boxer is McEgger.

    I reckon he would be able to stop Jeff Horn.

    Actually would be interesting because Conor an MMA guy would not put up with Horns illegal BS tactics.

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing if Horn tried his holding and hitting stuff Conor would give it straight back to him I also believe that Conor has better boxing skill than Horn which is why I would favour him to stop Horn in about the 6th round.

    That would be possible.

    Who knows, if he actually went for more than one moneygrab fight he may also improve, even at his age.

    No way, Horn is stronger than Floyd was at 147 and Bud has far more power than Conor, Manny couldn`t stop Horn and he has more power than Conor too, Horn would beat Conor but isn`t a champ anyway.

    Horn has an active guard and is a good fighter.

    Manny in a neutral venue probably stops Horn. Also latter career Manny isn't known for stoppages.

    I wonder why Manny is no longer stopping people? There was a time when he was blasting people out like a super human action figure.

    He also doesnt look as cut or as muscular as he used to.

    It is a big mystery.

    Floyd didn't carry anyone. He wouldn't even carry a 126 kickboxer who can't box for ****. His ego is too big to let anyone hit him.

    McGregor outboxed Floyd before his stamina gave out.

    As for whether McGregor can win a title. No. His boxing stamina is too lousy and he's not in the boxing ring enough to consistently improve on it.

    The punches Conor through at Floyd were not as hard as the punches Pac hit Horn with specifically in the 9th where he had Horn hurt but couldn`t finish him in the following round also Horn is a natural welter compared to Floyd who took Conor`s power easily.

    Conor didn`t land much but did the right thing by moving backwards as Floyd isn`t as good on the front foot, Floyd is a far better boxer than Conor, a number of figters Floyd beat when he was younger would have stopped Conor, he`s not an elite boxer at all, he did show some nifty moves but coudn`t adapt to Floyd`s high guard he admitted that in the post fight presser.
