Canelo - Chavez Jr. is official for May. I'm torn. On one hand, it's going to be fantastic to see Canelo destroy him. On the other hand, I hate seeing JCC Jr. getting a big payday since he's pretty much the worst.

They should do this at Azteca.

Chavez Jr is so bad. I can't wait to see him get his ass whooped.

Canelo will most definitely destroy him can't believe his camp landed this fight. He's a can.

He still draws in, though. Somehow. Chavez Jr. is basically the perfect fight for Canelo's camp. An easy win against a guy who draws. GGG-Canelo is the new Floyd-Pacman

Well this fight is good news in that regard - gets Canelo over the 160 lb hump, so no more excuses. Granted, it's still by no means a lock, but I am feeling slightly better about it.

And this fight makes a ton of business sense - going to crush it on PPV.

Mayweather-McGregor might actually fucking happen. The outcome is obvious, but there's no way I'm not watching it. The shit talking alone will be priceless.

Yeah Mayweather would absolutely wipe the floor with him, but I'm 100% dropping the $50 for it.

It's going to be more like $80, but agreed with the sentiment.

GGG-Jacobs should be a great fight, but isn't getting any hype. I love GGG's middleweight unification quest. I hope he gets it done. Doubt Billy Joe stops ducking him, though.

I hate being a sheep to these events but I dislike McGregor enough to want to pay the money to see him get smashed.

No one will get hurt. It's a Mayweather paint-drying fight. Tap tap tap run away. Tap tap run away.

Boring as fuck. McGregor will get beaten badly in points. They will both get a killer calisthenics workout.

I definitely think McGregor gets knocked out. There's zero way he shows up with the cardio to last a 12 round fight. That being said, it ending up exactly as you described would surprise no one.

I don't even think it would last 5 rounds tbh.

5 5 minutes rounds is way more cardio than 12 2 minute rounds, especially with wrestling and muay thai involved

I don't question his endurance, I just think Mayweather would destroy him within 5 rounds.

This June date they're trying to get seems like a cash-in. There's no way that will have been enough time for McGregor to seriously get ready for a boxing bout.

Eh - I bet Floyd just treads carefully, as usual. The only thing Connor has on Floyd is size and power, so I am betting we get the standard Floyd UD12.

Literally everything about this fight is a cash in.

Floyd is an old man. He will tread carefully and patiently.

McGregor's only chance at winning is via KO. He will try to bait Floyd into going for the kill and try to take advantage of that. And that won't happen.

This will be ridiculously boring but I will still watch because I'm a sheep.

Well, yes, I'm just saying it's obvious Conor's not even attempting to compete if he takes that date. Even if he's been training the whole time since his last fight (seriously doubt it).
