Default Mayweather vs McGregor

So this keeps getting more and more time in the media these days.
I say this absolutely happens as a boxing match.

A world class professional boxer wants to have a professional boxing match against an athlete from a different sport. This is like Michael Phelps challenging Don Mattingly to a swimming race.
The only reason anyone would pay for this is if they really want to see this McGregor fellow get beaten and humiliated.

Not a fair comparison. I don't know if Don Mattingly can swim or not but I do know Connor McGregor can fight. He has explosive KO power, IF he can land punches he can win.

He won't land a glove on Floyd. There is a huge gulf in talent there (boxing talent, as this is a boxing match we are discussing. If it was a MMA match, then Floyd would be at the disadvantage)
If any UFC guy had the ability to make it as a world class boxer, they would do it. Top level Boxers make significantly more money, despite UFC being more popular these days.

This fight is a farce. They are swindling people. I'm betting if it does happen Floyd will just toy with him, not hurt him much, let it go the distance and they will both laugh to the bank.

Maybe they should do another sport then? Like that one on most extreme elimination challenge where they rode bikes down an obstacle course with whale costumes on.

Forty of the first 42 bets placed on the fight at the SuperBook were on McGregor, the largest a $1,500 wager at +800. Mayweather is now listed at -900, with McGregor +700.
