White unsure if Ferguson-Lee victor would fight McGregor

White unsure if Ferguson-Lee victor would fight McGregor

At a Wednesday press conference in Las Vegas, Mayweather continued hammering the notion that McGregor could be a unsafe foe.

Floyd Mayweather weighed in at a trim 149 1/2 pounds Friday for his boxing showdown with Conor McGregor, who also made weight at 153 pounds.

"McGregor knows how to cut the ring, and get him in a corner".

Most of the headlines are about the bets placed on both sides, and what the Vegas books are trying to do to even up the money. Standard definition pay-per-view is priced at $89.95, while HD will set you back almost 100 bucks. McGregor is a UFC star, which means he is a mixed martial artist about to compete in his first professional boxing match. He also insisted that he could tell McGregor, who has fought at 145 pounds and 155 pounds in the UFC, was struggling to get down to the required limit. But he said this will be definitely be his last fight, and he wants to go out with a dominating performance.

The term prize fight is likely going to need a tweak after Mayweather vs. McGregor on Saturday night.

But maybe, just maybe, we'll see something we don't expect.

Nonetheless, Irish fans flooded the Arena and the area outside supporting their hero, McGregor.

And clearly, American bettors here in Las Vegas have piled on, too.

When you put them on, it should look completely dark, but when you look at the sun, it will look like the moon. If you are unable to get glasses, one way of indirectly observing the eclipse is by using a pinhole projector.

McGregor's potential to register the biggest upset in boxing history rests largely with the intangibles. Many are just attracted by the plus-money price, even as that price has dramatically plunged.

"I don't see him lasting two rounds", McGregor said.

"I've been here before", Mayweather said.

NY native Malignaggi had an explosive but short lived spell in the McGregor camp as a sparring partner in the lead-up to this fight. It's no BS on his part. If I'm explaining to you that Conor should be throwing a left hand differently than he is or if Floyd Mayweather should be using this particular punch instead of this particular punch, if he is or isn't and then it starts to happen, I'm going to explain to you why it should be that way.

Mike Tyson's former trainer Teddy Atlas was one of the latest voices to write off McGregor's chances of springing a surprise. And that's how it should be. He played the boxer, and I played the stalker. "It would nearly be a miracle".

Here are the best fight-related accounts that will bring you full coverage before, during and after the fight. McGregor boasted that he'll come into Saturday's event (Showtime PPV, 9 ET) "a lot bigger" than Mayweather, predicting he'd weigh around 170 in the ring. Although the numbers are still coming in, the people believe a traditional knockout is in store.

But it comes down to where the value truly is.

"Because there's no places to put your heart when you're commentating", Malignaggi said.
