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.

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 ...

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 ...

Broner vs Garcia – Post Fight Recap

Before the fight Mikey Garcia stated, “I want my name mentioned with the best”. At the conclusion of my prediction, I stated that Adrien Broner is good, but Garcia is great and would show it. With his UD win over Broner, what Mikey Garcia showed is he’s greater than we thought. Moving up to the 140-pound weight division against Broner, who was undefeated at the weight, who was in the best shape of his career, and pre-fight stated he will let his hands to the talking, Mikey Garcia at the end of the 12th round bell gave the feeling we ...

Adrien Broner vs Mikey Garcia – Fight Prediction

Many fighters have talent which separates them from the average person, but what they do with that talent determines their success in the ring. With Mikey Garcia, we have a talented counter puncher who has the skill set to be a top fighter pound for pound; however, inactivity raises the question of how good is he? In the other corner, we have Adrien Broner, who is a very talented fighter who yearns for the spotlight of his mentor Floyd Mayweather, however, to date that talent hasn’t translated to universal success. The question with Broner is can he turn it around ...

Broner vs Garcia – Fight Preview

Part of the greatness of boxing is that as fans we are exposed to fighters with different stories and personalities, meeting in a ring looking for the same result. That result isn’t limited to just being the winner, or becoming the champion, often the greatest result from a fight is earning respect. Earning the respect from your opponent, from your peers, and from the public. Next Saturday, the 140 pound showdown between Broner and Garcia will pit two fighters with different stories, with polar opposite personalities, each searching for the same result, respect! Adrian Broner is one of boxing’s most ...

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 ...
