Conor Mcgregor came into his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather already featuring a great glove control game. If people weren’t willfully ignorant they would have appreciated the high level the fight was fought at. The same techniques not found in the boxing manual that you see in a legendary fight like Rumble In The Jungle was also used skillfully by Mayweather and Mcgregor in their historic fight. Yes I said it! Ali vs Foreman was comparable to Mayweather vs McGregor in many ways.
Can Conor McGregor resist the urge to dumb down his ability to think vs Mayweather. There has been so much ignorant talk online by fans, media, and sadly enough boxers/coaches about this fight. McGregor and his team could be in this fight in regards to scoring if they just take their time. Attacking Mayweather’s Jab, not smothering himself, always throwing one extra punch in combinations, and overall being patient no matter what should be their game plan. Everything and anything else is simply not smart and a repeat of 49 other competitions.
Floyd Mayweather is the Grand Master of Chess wait I mean boxing. His patience is a discipline. His patience is the ultimate humility of a Martial Artist. He respects his opponents by taking his time, reading their tendencies, and adjusting second by second throughout competition. This usually frustrates many an opponent and force the opponent to fight how he allows them to fight. So most of his opponents end up having to spazz out to establish any type of positive offense.
