Yes, I watched that fight. I just couldn’t help myself but watch it out of curiosity. This fight really is the fight of the century. The fight got everyone talking. Even if people aren’t into boxing or MMA, the non-fans even got talking about it. Whether you agree with this fight or not, it is great publicity for both boxing & MMA — that can’t be denied.
Anyways, about my thoughts on last night’s ppv… I thought the undercard fights were good except for the second one: Nathan Cleverly vs. Badou Jack (aka Jack the Ripper). That fight was bullshit ’cause even though Jack was winning the fight, Cleverly was still trying to fight but the ref called for the bell and ended the fight anyways. That was dumb. So that gives you a little clue of what’s about to happen later on during the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight.
I thought the other two undercard fights were pretty good, though.
As far as the big main event goes: Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor — everyone’s praising that fight saying both men did a great job and more people are giving both men more respect. Really? That fight was actually mediocre at best.
From what I’ve seen, Conor was actually kickin’ ass and doing real good and like usual Floyd was boring in the ring like always. I don’t know why people keep praising Floyd like he’s this great boxer when technically he’s lousy. I know I defended Floyd in the past but after last night, I was wrong.
Conor could have knocked out Floyd easily if it was a real fight but I think it was obviously planned… the fight was a work and totally rigged. The ref, of course, sided with Floyd most of the time and the ref gave Conor so much shit throughout the fight. I was rooting for Conor to win but with this being a Floyd Mayweather production company being in charge of the fight, you shouldn’t have been surprised that Floyd was gonna win no matter what. Floyd probably did already buy the win beforehand.
The fight was totally rigged ’cause to me it looked like Conor wasn’t ready to end the fight during that 10th round. Floyd kept punching Conor and the ref just suddenly called it off. Conor wasn’t knocked down at all. I’m seeing from a lot of fans saying that Conor was beat up badly and knocked out. Really? Conor wasn’t knocked out at all. Sure, Conor was looking a bit worn out and tired but he still had some fight in him; he definitely wasn’t done at all.
So I’m sitting here thinking that no matter what Conor tried to do to win the fight: whether by knockout, TKO or unanimous decision… Conor would lose no matter the situation ’cause Floyd was gonna win no matter what happened. Floyd probably paid the promoters, the judges and the ref a lot of money to make him look good for most of the fight.
Floyd didn’t look good out in the ring; he looked old, tired and boring. Floyd didn’t go “all in”. No matter the outcome of the fight, both men are happy anyways ’cause they both got paid bigly. That’s why Conor looks very happy even if he lost ’cause I’ve read that Conor got paid $100 million for the fight while Floyd got paid a lot more.
After last night’s fight, I can see why people stopped caring for boxing. Pro boxing have been rigged and corrupt for a long time. There’s a good reason people stopped watching boxing.
I also love how a lot of people are trying to make claims that Conor knows nothing about boxing and doesn’t have any experience. Don’t listen to them. They’re just making lies to make Floyd look good. Conor had years of experience in boxing. I’m sure he had to do a lot of boxing training before he got into MMA. He definitely seem to know what he was doing last night except I wish he would put his hands up in front of his face more to protect himself which he didn’t do much.
I enjoy boxing but not pro boxing. I prefer amatuer boxing more. I may be learning boxing myself but I just do it as a hobby. I’ll never step in a ring, ever.
Despite the disappointing results of the fight last night, it was interesting to watch so it was definitely worth the money, absolutely.
