Against all odds: The Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Conor McGregor spectacle

With eyes closed, I can tell you, of course, who will win between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor. Obviously, it's... ahh... Do I need to mention it? That is because the fight is in the boxing ring. Not only that, if you look at everything on each guy's ledger all point to Mayweather's favor.

First, if we look at Conor's record in boxing at Boxrec it says triple "0". In Arabic, they called it "bateek". Boxing debutante actually. Okay fine, let's look at Conor's MMA record. The UFC superstar's MMA record as per is 22-3-0 (Win-Loss-Draw). The undefeated Mayweather's boxing record per is 49-0-0, 26 KOs (Win-Loss-Draw). Conor's wins not even surpassed the numbers of Floyd's KO victories. But of course, if the fight is in the cage, I'll bet on McGregor.

Actually, it's a monotony to point out things why Mayweather will win on Saturday night at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas because I'm not alone here. The boxing community I believe is unanimous in its prediction.

But well, it's not a reason for me not to watch it. But not a good reason to buy a PPV though. We all know exactly, what is the outcome. But of course, we want to see how it happens. I'm not belittling Connot here, but, you know, the fight is in the boxing ring. All respect to Conor, he's a good MMA fighter. He's just fighting in a different sport and the best in boxing.

It would be a spectacle of course that goes down into history. Two different combat sports stars meet in the boxing ring. I like to see a rematch in the cage to be fair in MMA. It will be exciting to see if Conor forgets that he's inside a boxing ring and start kicking Mayweather. Well, heavy penalties will be imposed if Conor kicks Mayweather.

Okay... that's all folks! Enjoy the match on Saturday night.
