    Yes he does. Federer might twist an ankle, dislocate a shoulder or got hit by the ball in the balls. Other than that it's slim.

    That is not a given. The press conferences were scripted so the fight may be scripted as well. This **** is like WWE.

    The most fascinating part is how easy it is to sell any old ****e as there is enough numpties around to buy it.
    You've never wondered why the crap adverts selling worthless crap seem to be American are on late night TV or nerd based TV stations aimed at unemployed weirdo's? Same goes for The ****ty shopping Channels and weirdo Religious freak TV. They are the adult males, ones who stand at the side of WWE Ring with placards wearing huge American Football/Basketball tops and don't realise what a twat they look. They actually fall for crap like the Big Show V Mayweather. In the UK they copy the style most are MMA fans due to not understanding what Boxing is about it's too much hard work, they fall for Gobshite Press Conferences, they follow American TV based sports as they were to useless to play the traditional games. Most grow out of watching Wrestling if you ever watched 80's Big Daddy you will see the majority of the audience are Old Grannies taking their young Grandkids out for the day.
    The people buying this are the same who have too much time on the Internet they rarely communicate offline to humans, their only window on the world is the Internet. If they got out more did they's be aware few ordinary people couldn't give a **** about this fight.
    All it's done for me is realise the more dumb twats in the world you get the easier it is to make easy money. Floyd Mayweather, Tyson Fury, David Haye, Tony Bellew, WWE, UFC. They all know the crack and have lined their pockets by promoting bull**** style knowing the dumb****s will by into it.

    To say he has a chance is ignorant. The difference in skill between your average kid in a gym and Conor is less than that between Conor and Floyd. The gap is enormous. He will not upset Floyd.

    Why would Mcgregor spar Brandon Rios before Mayweather???

    That tells it's BS, Rios and Mayweathers style's are polar opposites.

    MMA fighters wear 4oz gloves and they fight 5 minute rounds not 3. He took big flush shots from a UFC welterwieght (170lb) I dont see any chin issues. Its a lot more physical than boxing, wrestling and jujitsu take a lot out of you.

    Yeah, KO'ing a 400 pound guy is his biggest achievement and he doesn't get the props. This surpasses Manny fighting across 8 divisions in his career or Roy starting at middleweight and having won a version of the HW title.

    I'm a huge fan of both of these guys in their respective sport, but as much as I would love (properly love) Mayweather to get bounced, there is virtually no chance of it happening.

    Conor is going to need an insane amount of luck to get that punch he needs.

    Let's not be silly here, McGregor can punch and for as long as he's standing up, he has a chance, but I wouldn't bet this HB Pencil on my desk on a McGregor win, because I like this pencil more than I think the chance he has of winning is likely to be.

    Still, stranger things have happened.

    Personally, I've enjoyed the hullabaloo of the tour, it's different, shows that neither of them are particulalry articulate orators, but that's not what they're good at.

    Incidentally, Conor's stage presence does seem to irk Mayweather a little in my opinion. It's an odd situation, because Mayweather knows full well this fight is easy money, but he also knows that McGregor could tear him a new one outside of being gloved up. Must be weird knowing you can win the fight that matters, but know the opponent is actually the alpha male as it were....

    Enjoy the ride guys, this is entertainment, not sport.
