Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather agree to terms on mega-match

Quote:
Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have allegedly settled on terms for a multimillion-dollar boxing match, a British tabloid reported on Tuesday.

The bout could be announced within the next two weeks and both fighters have agreed to the financial details for the fight, The Sun reported, citing a source close to McGregor. Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe didn't respond to messages from USA TODAY Sports seeking comment.

And Mayweather said he was "comfortably retired."

That was yesterday, this is today, not tomorrow but the day before tomorrow and the day after yesterday, 7 days earlier it was Wednesday of last week.

What's frightening is that I understood this.

This could be as good as the Ali vs. Antonio Inoki. I'm not sure how this could ever work. Floyd won't fight unless it's strict boxing rules and if that's the case he'll run like a girl and throw an occasional jab with McGregor chasing him for the entire fight.

The fight would probably suck but the press conference before it would be totally insane.

Mayweather would beat him pretty handily anyway.

In a straight boxing match without a doubt.

Yeah...Floyd would never agree to that for any amount of money. Even though Conor doesn't grapple very much, he would still take Floyd down with ease and smash his face in. Hard to run around with your back on the mat.

The James Toney experiment showed what happens when a boxer steps into the cage. They don't have the skill to stop takedowns or get up after they do get slammed.

McGregor will probably lose some of his power with those pillow gloves. I'd love to see them box with the 8 oz. MMA gloves.

Mayweather hits pretty soft so why not get paid 50 million for a boxing match
