Recently Floyd “Money” Mayweather claims he will be having a MMA match. He didn’t say with whom. In jest back in November I mentioned it will be in Dublin, Ireland, on St. Patty’s Day March 17th, 2018.
Since Mayweather and McGregor planned the boxing match very carefully, Mayweather would only throw three light punches a round for six or seven rounds. Then Mayweather started not “pulling his punches” and by it got into the tenth round McGregor was beat up pretty good forcing the fight to be stopped by the referee.
It was “rumored” they were seen hand in hand with each having a bag of money in the other hand into a bank. If you remember there were some 500 million dollars given on this so-called match. Mayweather just might hope McGregor doesn’t take him down and out before he is busted up in return.
When Oscar de La Hoya was matched with Bernard Hopkins it seemed obvious Hopkins was “carrying Oscar”. All of a sudden a left hook from Hopkins either hit Oscar in the liver or kidney and down he went. On his knees he was pounding the canvas with his right hand.
When the count reached “10” Oscar suddenly got up like nothing happened. It reminded me of the Mike Tyson and Bruce Seldon match. Tyson knocked Seldon down. As soon as the referee’s count got to “10” up jumped Seldon. In that case I do believe he was dropped and was fearful to continue.
Any of the “fools” who bought the PPV Mayweather and McGregor match I want to remind them of an old saying. “Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice and shame on me!”
It’s matches like they had that gives boxing another black eye. The Bible says not money but the “love of money is the root (route) to evil! And we all know Mayweather’s love of money. In McGregor’s case where else would he have made one million dollars for his participation? I believe Mayweather got some 400 million. Just to think Rocky Marciano made a total of 50 thousand for his 49 fights.
