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.
Conor McGregor needs to be in dominant positions all night long vs Floyd Mayweather. Will Mayweather fall for Conor’s traps? Can Mayweather press the attack safely being physical like he does vs all southpaw’s to break their will? Can Conor avoid moments of laziness? So many questions will be answered when these two athletes meet August 26th.
