On August 26th, fight fans will tune in to what many are considering the biggest fight of all time as Conor McGregor & Floyd Mayweather step into the ring together at the T-Mobile arena for a highly anticipated boxing match.
Ahead of the fight, many have predicted that Floyd Mayweather will pick up a very lopsided win over Conor McGregor given his incredible defensive ability inside the ring. With that being said however, many also believe that McGregor’s power, combined with the fact that he’s a southpaw, will make McGregor a tough puzzle for Mayweather to crack.
In the video above, you can see an extremely in-depth breakdown of the fight, and why Conor McGregor may have a better chance than many believe he does going into this fight.
The video breaks down not only McGregor’s stylistic advantage over Mayweather with his natural southpaw stance causing problems for Mayweather’s flawless defense using the Philly shell, but also breaks down how McGregor has the advantage of having countless Mayweather fights to analyze leading up to the fight. Surprisingly, the video also takes a look at the trash talk of both men, and how they utilize trash talk to shut their opponents down both before the fight, and during the fight.
With the breakdown above being taken into account however, Floyd Mayweather is of course one of the most dominant boxers of this era, and is still of course a heavy favorite going into the fight according to the current Vegas odds, which have the undefeated boxer as a -550 favorite going into the fight, while McGregor is a +375 underdog. To simplify the above-mentioned numbers, it would take a $550 bet on Mayweather to potentially win $100, whereas a $100 bet on McGregor would potentially earn you $375 should the UFC champion pull off an upset.
