    First of all, make it realistic. For example, I think McGregor could beat this old, small, shot to **** Paulie. Don't go mentioning midgets or people like Ray Leonard who have been retired for years.

    Could Conor take Berto at this point? Devon Alexander? Victor Ortiz? Shane Mosley?

    Before you move this to MMA forum, this is a BOXING question as Conor has competed in a BOXING match, don't be petty.

    He can move up to 160 and beat Golovkin left handed or right handed in his case. I’d favor Mcgregor over Gvozdzyk and Kovalev as well

    Sugar Mac KOs Eggington, Brandon Rios, Jessie Vargas, Sadam Ali etc.

    Think he would be a solid fringe level contender. Falls short at world level like he did against Money May

    Maybe Kirkland, in Kirkland's current state.

    I think he'd also give current El Perro a run for his money.

    Any boxer would just keep out of his way for a couple of rounds and let him gas. His stamina is ****ing awful for a professional athlete.

    His pure boxing skills are like a 15 years old amateur

    May-McG was the biggest farce in sports history

    Why would any decent boxer keep out of his way? They are supposed to be the more experienced ones and dominate him from the bell

    He won rounds vs Floyd lol.

    He only got stopped cause it was his first fight and he fought for 12 rounds, no pro debuter ever does that. He has obvious talent.

    I don’t think Conor can take a shot from Kirkland

    I do not get the elitist mindset of some people here. McGregor did well vs Mayweather. I have no doubt that he would be top 10 at 154 or 160 in a year or two.
    Would not be surprised if he managed to pick up a title.

    Floyd was 40 years old, giving up visible size, and didn't train for the fight. McG won 4 rounds before gassing out and got walked down then TKO'd by the old man.

    I feel like every boxer would have an advantage that Floyd didn't. They know how McG would actually box. From stance to speed to footwork and obviously tendencies. Nobody knew that before. It looked awkward and goofy and wasn't what anybody visualized going in but hey, it put on a show for a little while. That said, no top 20 boxer at junior middleweight loses to him.
