The Aug. 26 Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregorevent is a fight thats attracting the most mainstream attention and coverage for the sport of boxing in years. The best fighter of his generation (Mayweather) taking on an MMA star whos making his pro boxing debut (McGregor) is a contest that has people salivating about the possibility of McGregor pulling off the greatest upset in sports history.
But theres almost no chance McGregor can win, and after both posted training videos this week, its easy to see why. And its easy to understand why people are laughing at McGregor and his rudimentary skills.
First, Mayweather released his video late last week, showing that hes still got plenty oftalent and speed for a 40-year-old fighter.
Then, in response, McGregor posted this.

Predictably, the internet had a nice chuckle at McGregors expense.

That McGregor training video from today is the equivalent of me trying to find a friend with Tidal right now so I can listen to the new Hova

McGregor, though, will likely have the last laugh. Yes, hes probably going to get embarrassed by Mayweatherand potentially knocked out coldbut hes reportedly going to make at least $75 million for this fight. Either way, despite his elementary boxing skills, McGregor is going to win big.
