Prediction – Mayweather or McGregor?
Although an early assessment by the boxing pundits says that Mayweather will easily defeat McGregor, which is to some degree fair because McGregor has no such boxing experience that could be handy for him and make him win. He is an MMA fighter.
Mayweather is expected to win his 50th win and creates a record of winning the highest number of matches. He has a great defense, and his counterpunching style is very much active. Also, McGregor’s lacks in experience in fighting with bigger gloves that are used in boxing add to his long list of disadvantages.
But certain factors can be said to be McGregor’s advantage. First and foremost, he is younger than Mayweather and is bigger than him too. Besides if you go through his career list in MMA fights as well as UFC Championships, you would see that he has knocked out fighters who have not been knocked out of the game before. In fact, he has the record number of knockouts in MMA. He is said to possess the best pair of fighting hands in MMA’s history.
