Being that King Mo is one of the most well informed fight scholars, I asked him point blank… “Who wins a boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor?”
“How can I explain this? Conor McGregor would be the white Apollo Creed when he fought Ivan Drago. He would get murdered. It wouldn’t even be close.”
“In an MMA fight, Conor would probably take Floyd down and pound him out. Conor would look like Khabib Nurmagomedov and Demian Maia combined vs Floyd.”
There is a strange double standard, however. When you pose the question if Conor could beat Floyd in MMA the answer is always yes. As soon it becomes Conor McGregor boxing and beating Floyd, the results are mixed. I truly wasn’t aware of how out of touch casual fans actually were. Mo enlightened me with some gems.
“I know cats that watch boxing and casually watch MMA. They asked me if Anderson Silva will ever fight Chuck Liddell.”
“At a lot of boxing gyms, boxers respect MMA. They’ll say MMA guys have no hands, but it’s crazy what they do.”
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor talk to each other on the phone.”
“Floyd does his own thing. Conor does his own thing. You think their paths will actually cross unless it’s planned? I can’t see Conor going to the BET Awards.”
So if a casual fan is reading this, please listen to the words of King Mo. Stay away from the ‘experts’ that have never fought that say things like, “…She’s going to get you in her armbar hold move”.
Yes, that’s an actual direct quote from ‘Undisputed’ on FS1.
