McGregor releases statement after loss to Mayweather

Almost a week has gone since Conor McGregor took on Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas, in which the Irishman lost via a TKO to Mayweather. With so many people and boxing fans stating the whole clash was a circus and should not have taken place, McGregor actually faired pretty well for his first time in a boxing ring. Mcgregor released a statement on Instagram, reflecting back on last Saturday night’s fight. “Just coming back around after a whirlwind couple of days. Thank you to all the fans for the support of the fight and the event! Without your support we ...

Mayweather vs McGregor – Who’s the winner…Them or us?

Non-sports fans always ask what draws us sports fans to a big event. What is interesting about the Olympics, Big Championship games, horse races etc? Along with the expected entertainment, drama, thrill and excitement are what brings us in to big events. But there is one thing that is key that bridges the disconnect between sports fans and non-sports fans, and that is the spectacle.  When two top teams finally meet, in a showdown for all of the marbles, the world tunes in because the hype surrounding it is that you are going to witness a display of excellence between ...

Malignaggi happy to settle ‘bad blood’ with McGregor in the ring

Paul Malignaggi and Conor McGregor’s ‘bust up’ during sparring sessions has taken another step as during an interview with mmafighting.com, on the ‘MMA Hour’, Malignaggi spoke with Ariel Helwani via telephone to discuss the issue with Conor McgGregor. McGregor and his team were publicising how McGregor knocked Paulie down during the sparring sessions, which led to Paulie leaving the training camp. When speaking on the MMA Hour, Paulie said, “This weirdo didn’t do either of these things, he constantly puts me in the press with these edited videos, edited pictures and whatnot. Now, it’s picked up a ton of momentum. So ...

Mayweather vs McGregor: Can Conor Win?

With the recent quotes from Floyd Mayweather about his slippage, along with the reports that Conor is impressive in camp, I ask the question, does Conor McGregor have a chance to pull off the biggest upset in boxing history? What’s key in Mayweather’s quotes isn’t just his own admission that he has lost a step and isn’t the same fighter. What’s key is his admission that Conor on paper should be favoured because of his advantage of age, reach, power, and height. While many could see this as a ploy to create excitement for the fight with fans having the ...

Undefeated but not untouchable

As we look towards the entertainment approaching us, the Floyd Mayweather Jr and Conor McGregor fight will always be a talking point, even before the two enter the ring. Many believe the fight to be irrelevant and many believe it to be a show of entertainment…personally, it is a bit of both. With McGregor stepping into the squared circle for the first time in his career and strapping on the gloves, Mayweather is the favourite to overcome the Irishman and add to his undefeated record which currently reads at 49 – 0. McGregor though is no easy opponent, even if ...

If he wins the fight it will take ...

Mayweather vs McGregor – Good for boxing?

Please No, Not Again! Not after the aftermath of the Mayweather/Pacquiao from May 2015 in which casual boxing fans were left with a bad taste in their mouth, PPV sales decreased, and boxing had a bad image in the sports world. In my opinion it wasn’t the $100 price tag it came with but the lack of action, after the years of the buildup was what did it. Pacquiao who is an all-time great fighter, fought the fight with an injured shoulder, and while he had his great moments in rounds 2, 4, 6, 8 & 9, Mayweather out pointed ...
