2017 BOXING fight – Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Conor McGregor – full fight Video

mayweather-vs-mcgregor-poster-official-200
3 Star RatingReview by AllTheBestFights.com: 2017-08-26, we expected something more between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor but unfortunately this fight will go down in history of boxing and combat sports just for numbers, pursues, money, trash talking and the show they produced before the bout rather than what we have seen inside the ring. However, leaving aside our disappointment, we think that Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Conor McGregor was not a boring fight and it gets three stars, but if you want to see some epic fights, it’s better to check our ranking of the best boxing fights of the year 2017.

The undefeated former world champion in five different weight classes Floyd Mayweather Jr (40 years old and eleven years older than the Ufc fighter Conor McGregor) entered this fight with a perfect boxing record of 49-0-0 (26 knockouts) and he was ranked as theNo.1 boxing welterweight (147 lbs, 66.7 kg) and No.1 pound for pound in the world until his last fight against Andre Berto (September 12, 2015, Mayweather vs Berto). Before this bout ‘Money’ had beat Manny Pacquiao in 2015 (=Mayweather vs Pacquiao) and twice Marcos Maidana in 2014: the first fight was very close, Floyd won just by majority decision (=Mayweather vs Maidana I) while he beat the Argentinian via unanimous decision in their rematch (=Mayweather vs Maidana II). In 2013 he had also defeated Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (=Mayweather vs Alvarez). If ‘Pretty Boy’ beats Conor McGregor, he will break Rocky Marciano’s unbeaten record of 49-0 but a lot of boxing fans and Rocky Marciano Jr, son of the boxing legend, think that a fight with a boxing debutant like Conor McGregor should not be counted.
His opponent, the former Ufc Fw and current Lw champion Conor McGregor is at his professional boxing debut but he has a mma record of 21-3-0 (90% finishing rate) and he is the No.1 mma lightweight (155 lbs, 70 kg) and No.7 P4P. After beating Jose Aldo via knockout in 2015 in just 13 seconds (4-stars fight Aldo vs McGregor), ‘The Notorius’ has faced Nate Diaz twice in 2016 losing the first bout via submission (4-stars fight, McGregor vs Diaz I) and winning the second one (=Diaz vs McGregor II). In his last bout he moved up in weight class to the lightweight division winning over the former Ufc Lw champion Eddie Alvarez by technical knockout (=Alvarez vs McGregor). Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Conor McGregor is valid for the vacant WBC Money belt, special belt consisting of 1.5 kg of 24 KT gold, 3.360 diamonds, 600 sapphires and 160 emeralds.
If you want to know more about the two fighters we have analyzed some numbers, records and statistics about Mayweather vs McGregor and we have also collected the most important predictions on the mega-fight released by the most important boxers and Ufc champs like Mike Tyson, Oscar De La Hoya, Tyson Fury, Anderson ‘The Spyder’ Silva, Stipe Miocic and many others.
Before rating the fight McGregor vs Mayweather, here are some words said by ‘Money’ Mayweather during Wednesday’s final press conference in Las Vegas: “Competing against the best, that’s what it’s about […] Pacquiao got bombs, Canelo got bombs, Shane Mosely had bombs, and all of those guys are going into the Hall of Fame, but one thing about me, I’ve got a grinning chin. The same way you give it, you have to be able to take it. Remember this […] Conor McGregor can still have a hell of a career,” Floyd added. “He’s a hell of a fighter, a hell of a fighter, he’s a standup guy, he’s a tough competitor, it’s not going to be an easy fight. It’s going to be blood, sweat, and tears […] I’ve been hearing plenty of times, guys say, ‘I’m going to go to the body on Mayweather, I’m going to hit him with the right hand, I’m going to hit him with the left hook, after 21 years I’ve been hit with everything, and I’m still right here […] last I checked, no one is walking me down, it’s called having smarts. It’s called having an IQ, it’s called having patience.” And this is what Conor McGregor said:“I will break this old man…I don’t see him lasting two rounds, I feel I’ll have the decision to end it inside one […] Eight-ounce gloves, he made a big, big error in my opinion,” McGregor added. “He messed up with them eight-ounce gloves. It was amusing and all that, but I’m very, very happy for eight. We usually fight in four, we’re going to fight in eight. Keep your hands up, keep your hands down, I don’t care. I’m going to break through whatever is in front of me […] I’m gonna f*ck this boy up, make no mistake. And when it’s all said and done, I’m gonna feel a little bit sad. Because you all should have kept your mouths shut. You should have left me over in that other game where I’m from, that more ruthless game where we bounce heads off the canvas and drill them into the floor. You should have left me where I was because this man is not on my level, he’s not even a quarter of the man I am […] The fight business is the fight business, I can go into any rule sets, that’s what a true material artist can do. I am truly, truly skilled in many forms of fighting. After I get a victory Saturday night, I will most certainly look to compete in both sports […] I certianly know I’m going to win…”.
