Obviously biased but is Mayweather really that shit on the mic?

I watched a clip of McGregor sparring with some fella and he was appalling!

I'd take that with a pinch of salt.

He's been getting owned by McGregor. He says like the same three things over and over again.

"HARD WORK"

"YEAH"

"I GOT LOTS OF MONEY"

But I see Floyd winning the fight pretty easily.

The money men behind the boxers like to get their 2 minutes of fame on the podium too. Is it always like that? In general, an MMA CEO just says hello and gets the fuck outta there and lets the fighters do the talking.

They normally don't talk this much. Mostly they're just supposed to introduce the fighters and let them say their peace.

I'll kinda be glad when it's all over if I'm being honest.

One of my favorite local fighters, Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero, retired after getting knocked down his third straight fight. Good run while it lasted.

He was at one point like a B to B+ list level boxer. Suffered some fairly questionable defeats against opponents Mayweather dominated. The guy certainly has talent, but almost zero punching power. Not even close to Mayweather's ability, even at 40 and with all the ring rust.

I'm guessing this is being used to promote the match, because apparently ticket sales for Mayweather vs. McGregor are surprisingly low.

Go onto the website - there are still thousands of seats left. I was looking on Weds last week - you could still get multiple groups of six, five rows back.

That's funny because McBigmouth says Mayweather is going down in four.

Even though this is a mockery, Mayweather wants to go down as 50-0 to seal his legacy. This goes maybe two. Mayweather.

I'm predicting an accumulation stoppage. So, I'm saying Mayweather by TKO in round 10.
