    McGregor came out in, maybe the 7th or 8th, and used his last bit of gas. After that it was like watching a cat play with a mouse.

    I was surprised that Conor's good shots early had no noticeable effect. Weather it was the gloves or Mayweather's ability to take the hits, I don't know. McGregor needed to hurt him early but couldn't. He had no other plan.

    Badou Jack was the only guy who could hit hard all night.

    That didn't surprise me I thought he would look good in the first 2 rounds and would start to really get exhausted around 5, he got tired around round 3. Pauly M was dead on correct. I didn't expect Floyd to actually win in any fashion other than a decision after 12. The fact that he went offensive was really surprising to me. He said he wanted to give the fans more offense because of the Paciao (spelling) fight.

    Mayweather won fair and square but damn ,the fix was in if it went to decision. 2 judges had Mayweather winning 2 of the first three rounds, when Mayweather wasn't even punching. Mayweather had two outs to win, Conor only had one.

    No not wasn't. The only fix would be if McGregor won a decision. Bc the champ never loses if it goes to the scorecard unless he has to be rolled out from his corner on a stretcher. I learned that many years ago.

    Cm was sort of competitive but was never in control. He couldn't beat Mayweather if they fought 100 times.

    A long match was bad for the irishman. Mayweather does know ho w to take a punch. Trying to out point him was the wrong plan but a gutsy one.

    He didn't have a plan. Survive only.

    Except for whem Michael Spinks was given a bogus decision over Larry Holmes. Holmes was 48-0 and there was no way the mafia was going to allow a black man to tie Rocky Marciano's record.
