While the fight is still two months away, and many of us in the sports media have formed our own opinions. The one common thing we can all agree on is that Conor McGregor will enter his fight with Floyd Mayweather as one of the biggest underdogs in boxing history.
It is hard to even fathom how a man making his boxing debut will stand a chance at one of the greatest men in the history of the sport. It will be a true spectacle. And while my co-hort in the MMA game, Eli Mooneyhamn will have plenty of reasons on why McGregor will pull off the miracle, it will be hard for him or anyone to argue with this visual proof below.
In just a simple training session, each man shows you their speed, jabbing power, footwork and just a flash of their overall game.
Floyd Mayweather showing the pure speed that has defined his game over the many years he has been dominant in that ring!
