Mayweather is probably one of boxing's biggest heroes in a long time.  What does it say about the sport of boxing if and MMA fighter crosses lines and whoops his ass at his own game?

Boxing still has more than enough superstars to shine, it'd be a dented ego at most

I think Floyd wins  

 

but i agree it won't hurt boxing to bad.

 

Floyd is 40 years old  if they fought  5 years ago and he beat Floyd

 

boxing would feel a big sting i think

A boxer coming over to MMA and getting his ass whooped wasn't as big a deal because it's fairly obvious that if you lack the skillset in a certain area you're going to get beatdown in MMA but a jack of all trades fighter going into pure boxing could be a much louder statement.

Still it's not like it will "end" boxing or put any sort of dent in a sport already steeped in corruption and lopsided can crushing at most levels of the sport.

Not that he's going to, but boxing can always look at it from the perspective that Floyd is 40 years old and hasn't fought in 2 years.

btw mcgregor is fighting a legend in boxing, true ... but someone who is not 100% in his prime ... if he wanted to prove anything he would have fought Canelo or someone who is definitely in his prime right now ...

 

anyways  mcgregor will win the fight via match fixing

(big money involved... they don't even let out the real pay days for the fighters, promotions ... so, anything is possible :D )

I doubt Connor can beat him, even at 40y old, personally i would like to see that happen, but i am not sure that is good for the UFC because Conor will likely then go for another money fight in Boxing, there is no way he can earn that type of cash in MMA. This means the 155lbs belt might as well be vacated like the 145lbs belt because Connor wont be defending it any time soon. That said, if Conor was to win, it is a bit of a hit on the reputation of Boxing, but they will have their excuses that Floyd did not take the fight seriously or, he was beyond his prime and did not fight for 2 years etc etc.

McGregor is going to get destroyed unless he rocks him and knocks him out early. He has MMA hands. Even when training boxing he's leaving his right hand extremely low and Floyd is gonna pick him apart.

 

Biggest difference in MMA and Boxing imho, boxing is a "hands up" sport because gloves can absorb a lot of damage and incoming blows. MMA not so much unless you tuck your head and cover up Gaethje style.. and even then that leaves you super vulnerable.

 

Conor's style and hand placement is "Hit me". It'd be nothin short of a miracle if McGregor pulls off the upset given his fighting stance and style of punching.

I do really believe that if Conor win he should stick with Boxing and make a lot more of money, then try  with Canelo and GGG and no matter what happen he should retire next and focus on Hollywood crap.

For selfish reasons I'd really like him to come back home after this one

Me too but really MMA doesn't make enough money yet, it's still growing and doesn't have as many investors corrupting it so far.

Even if he loses Mcrgregor can possibly even find more money fights in boxing after this is done. Especially if he loses the long decision because that would at least give him a bit of credit where everyone is saying he will be KO'd.

It wouldn't do anything to existing fans but it would make it harder to convince new fans to watch in the immediate and distant future. Boxing has enough problems with that as it is.

Anyway, i do not think we have anything to worry about, Conor will lose and end of story. I think the big question is if Mayweather has enough to finish him, i think the answer is yes, but we will see.
