It’s interesting how MMA fans and boxing fans want to debate this fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor which takes place on Aug. 26th on ppv. Many are saying that Conor doesn’t have what it takes to beat Floyd. Many are saying Conor doesn’t have the boxing skills simply because he’s an MMA fighter aka Mixed Martial Arts. Really?
So I decided to do more research on Conor and started watching some of his older fights this week on youtube. Here a few of them above. Some are saying that Conor doesn’t have any boxing skills and he wouldn’t be able to beat Floyd. Seriously? If you say that then that means you probably haven’t even seen a single Conor McGregor fight.
Watch those three fights in the videos above. What do you see Conor doing most of the time? Yes, that’s right. Boxing. Conor is mostly known as a mixed martial artist… yes but he has been trained in boxing over the years. As you can see in the videos above, Conor is the master at knocking down his opponents. How? The key to that is “jabbing”. Conor knows how to throw a good jab. If you actually watch Conor’s fights, you can see that he has a lot of boxing skills and he’s good at it. All it takes to knock an opponent down is just a few jabs and Conor proves that.
People didn’t want this fight between Conor and Floyd Jr. to happen for no reason. They wanted it to happen ’cause they know Conor is a great boxer. Fans wanted this fight to happen ’cause they believe Conor has what it takes to end Floyd Jr.’s undefeated streak.
Yeah when this fight happens at the end of Aug., Floyd Jr. is probably gonna dance around the ring like usual and try to avoid getting hit by Conor but I don’t think Floyd Jr. will be dancing around Conor at all. Watching some of Conor’s older fights, his opponents will try to avoid getting hit by him but Conor will always try to find a way to hit his opponent. Just watch the videos above. Conor is a smart and intelligent boxer. Honestly, I don’t think Floyd Jr. has what it takes to avoid getting hit by Conor. Floyd should be scared of Conor and I hope Floyd is ready for him.
People want to doubt Conor all the time…. well I’m sure Conor is used to getting doubted and he is used to proving people wrong too. I’m sure he’ll prove people wrong once again on Fight Night Aug. 26th.
I sure can’t wait for this ppv ’cause I’m definitely gonna watch it. Like everyone else, I can’t stand Floyd Mayweather Jr. and it’s finally time to shut him up. Floyd Jr. getting his ass kicked is long overdue.
