What we saw in the Mayweather McGregor fight

What we saw in the Mayweather McGregor fight

Last week got down in the boxing world as Mayweather took on McGregor in one of the biggest money fights we have seen. The enthusiasm rattling the world was vindicated as we could not wait to see an ambitious McGregor, a green learner in boxing take on a seasoned veteran of the ring in Mayweather. And sure the results were as we expected. Despite the possibility of McGregor turning the tables on Mayweather and springing a spectacular surprise win, reality and experience shone through and Mayweather expectedly came out the winner in a TKO in the 10th round. The match wasn’t any less spectacular though. These are 3 things we saw in the match.

 

1. Mayweather and McGregor won in their respective ways

While the match was exciting and both combatants eying the win, we can’t say McGregor really lost technically. First, we were not really expecting him to win Mayweather who had 49 undefeated matches behind him. This was McGregor who was boxing for the first time. However, McGregor is nonetheless a high profile opponent being the MMA champion. At the end of the day, McGregor still gave us enough of entertainment winning some early rounds soundly. While Mayweather took home about $100 million, McGregor didn’t do badly going home with $30 million with a rotundly inflated reputation and reinvented universal fame. Not bad business for both as both men won at the end of the day.

2.  The match seemed a bit too long as Mayweather could have finished it earlier

Mayweather who is aggressively lavish in his social life is very pragmatic in the ring and is renowned for his well oiled defensive discipline. Mayweather will always play it safe. Against Pacquiao, he was as safe as boring as he stayed back home and allowed Pacquiao to exhaust himself attacking. This is almost the same he did with McGregor as he allowed the Irish kickboxer to drain of his vigor in early enigmatic moves. Later he took the battle to a tired McGregor and won in the 10th round. But should it have really gone as far as the 10th round? Against a McGregor making his debut in boxing? Not too bad though as slow and steady won the race.

 

 

 

3.  Mayweather can deservedly go back to retirement while McGregor goes back to MMA

The match was really spectacular to see. Both fighters eventually vindicated the enormous publicity poured into the match. Still, both fighters are deservedly done with boxing. Mayweather leaves with a chest pumping with pride and a shoulder hanged in approved arrogance. He was gone 50-0 in his career. You can’t take his legendary status from him again as he is well vetted and good to get an honorable seat in the Hall of Fame. He has gotten big money too. So it is a resplendent climax to the end of a career for him. For McGregor too, he did excellently well for a boxer. We honestly didn’t expect so much from him even staying to the 10th round. Such an admirable job from him, he has a global thunderous applause for his boxing escapades. He has also got a fat cheque too. He can now pull off his boxing gloves proudly and go back to his genetic MMA.

Actually my previous comment was supposed to have had a no star review,not 3.My error. There has now been a follow up to earlier events.Sport Pesa are refusing to give my original £10 deposit back. They tell me I must deposit more money from another source,then make a withdrawal of all cash back to this new card/source.Well considering what they have already done,ie:refused my original £10 bet placement,and then not allowed me to get my money back,I will not be falling for this con again. As a previous reviewer said,they are crooks.They are new to this business,and want to be up there with the big boys.But if this is the way they treat new customers I do not expect them to be around for too long. I urge all potential new customers to hit them where it hurts,in the pocket.Avoid them.

Opened an account 2 days ago.Just made my first deposit of £10 and placed a £10 football treble.Immediately got a message saying that i was a "restricted customer." Spoke on live chat to "Flavio" who informed that this was a business decision, and that £10 was too large a bet for me to place.He never said an amount,but told me the bet had to be smaller than £10......WHAT!!! - First of all i thought he was joking,then soon realised he wasn't.Informed him that i had never heard anything so ridiculous,and would withdrawal my £10 back to my card,and place the exact same bet with Skybet.........which i have now done.If they came back to me and now offered me 10 free bets to continue with them i would decline.......I WILL NEVER USE THEM AGAIN.
