No Other Boxer vs. MMA Fighter Bouts On McGregor vs. Mayweather Card

Although Ricky Hatton thinks Conor McGregor has no chance come August, he has stated that he would love to see the Irishman "flatten" Floyd Mayweather.

Plans are now underway for a press conference where Mayweather and McGregor will meet face-to-face for the first time since the fight was made official a week ago.

"I've been talking to the guys about this". He said the fight will do just fine even if it is competing for fan attention and money with the freak show so close to it. I mean never. I've seen fighters better in every aspect of boxing and vastly more gifted than Mayweather.

The superman punch is typically used in muay Thai, sanshou and Burmese boxing. Though fully focused on his long-awaited showdown with Kazakhstan's Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) on September 16 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) has always wanted another opportunity to dethrone Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs).

"Can a world class boxer, probably the best ever, can he stand in the ring with an MMA guy and can that MMA guy bring his striking skills up to the level of someone, like say, a Floyd Mayweather?".

"There's a saying, you know, first things first", Alvarez told a small group of reporters through a translator Tuesday night in Manhattan. This is the middleweight fight the fans have been clambering for a long time...

Mayweather won by majority decision, yet clearly won a 12-round fight one judge, C.J. Ross, somehow scored even (114-114). To him, there is no doubt which is the more interesting fight of the two.

Remember when Mayweather took on "Big Show" at Wrestlemania XXIV in a no disqualification match in 2008?

I don't blame Conor McGregor for going through with this charade. "Maybe I'll go and play hockey with my son". Mayweather laughs at that and says...."I'm 40-years old, haven't fought in two years and just beat the best fighter in MMA". "Get a little rough, get into the clinch, tire out those arms by doing maybe what Rocky Marciano used to do, which is beat up the arms a little bit, get those exhausted, clinch him up, try to tire him out". If McGregor lays a glove on Mayweather it'll be news.

If you think there's a chance in the world Conor McGregor leaves the ring victorious, then you must be insane.

You were forewarned in this space before Mayweather vs. Pacquiao that there was no chance Mayweather would lose because he waited for the right time to fight Pacquiao.

I wouldn't waste your time this summer debating the outcome!
