I have been wondering for some time now what would happen if the world’s top fighter right now, Connor Mcgregor, stepped up against the world’s richest fighter, Floyd Mayweather.
I would be lying if I told you that I love the way Mayweather fights because I don’t. But his ultra defensive style has been incredibly successful in boxing and it raised him to the very top. Whether I like it or not, he couldn’t be beaten in boxing by fighting the way he did.
Not even one of the best and most exciting boxers in Manny Pacquiao could defeat Mayweather, although let’s be honest, that fight was incredibly disappointing thanks to Mayweather’s tactics.
You can love or hate Mayweather but the man wins boxing matches, with 49 wins and 0 defeats to his name. Mayweather’s tactics in the boxing ring might be incredibly difficult to beat, however in the UFC octagon, it could be a whole different story.
With grappling and kicks coming into play, it could be a whole different ball game for Mayweather. McGregor hasn’t got a perfect record, but his risky style of fighting is how he sometimes fell short. However, his sort of style in the octagon could completely counter Mayweather.
At this point, it’s all speculation and opinions, or is it? There isn’t exactly a Floyd Mayweather vs Connor McGregor fight scheduled for real, but there is the next best thing…sort of…
Someone has made a video of Floyd Mayweather vs Connor Mcgregor on the 8 bit game Mike Tysons Punch Out. It’s good fun, have a watch!
