Conor McGregor has no shot of beating Floyd Mayweather on August 26th. I’m not a diehard boxing or MMA fan, but it doesn’t take a human genius to tell you that a world class boxer is going to defeat a world class MMA fighter in a boxing match. With that said, I don’t know how you root for anyone other than Conor McGregor. He’s just as arrogant and insufferable as Mayweather at times, but he’s also someone who will wear a suit with the words ‘fuck you’ printed all over it. That’s so great. If it was anyone else, I’d say that they’re milking up all this publicity even though they know they’re going to lose, but I don’t think McGregor thinks that. He’s crazy enough to think he can win, but even if he doesn’t, he’s going down in a blaze of glory.
I don’t think the Mayweather/McGregor fight will ever be able to live up to the build, but there’s no denying that both guys (and Showtime) know how to hype up a big time event. The match is a little over 7 weeks away, and Showtime is pulling out the big guns with it’s latest trailer. It’s really just Mayweather & McGregor talking about themselves mixed in with training and fight footage, but both guys are so confident and so skilled that it makes for an enthralling trailer. Whether you love or hate them, you can’t deny that millions of people will be watching this fight on August 26.
