Of course he can be hit. Here's where we separate the people that know what they're talking about and those that are just flapping their gums. Mayweather will more than likely let the fight go as long as possible knowing that McGregor will want to knock him out or simply can't go the distance. Mayweather CAN go the distance, he WILL control the fight and he will make McGregor his bitch.

My humble opinion is to the untrained eye it might look like a run and hide, duck and jive kinda of match for May, but remember that boxing is about lungs and defense as much as it is about skill and punching. Boxers have to be much faster and have much MUCH more stamina than MMA fighters and I've seen McGregor gas in second rounds of MMA fights. 15 minutes vs your peers and fighters of your caliber and fighters you are somewhat much better than vs 36 minutes of boxing vs the greatest boxer, (arguably ever) is much different.

There's a huge percentage of natural talent that comes into play here as well as training that you add on top of that. Let's say that ideally both fighters are in the same exact shape and train to the exact same standard and perfection.
Which fighter has the edge when it comes to natural boxing talent?

There's a reason you have to bet $550 on Mayweather just to win $100.

What were those Pacquiao odds again before he lost to that school teacher, -600?

Ouch. Someone swiped right and has a little man crush.

Speak to the fight on hand, not to fights that have no bearing on what's to come. Kindly share with us the in-depth knowledge you may possess that might convince us all that McGregor will claim victory over Mayweather. I'll give you a hint. "Him fights real good" is not a good analysis.

I'm just saying don't discount him... everyone has a chance to beat a legend, even a teacher. Cause him fights real good.

LOL. Well $hit. I got nothing. Because you can't argue that. Now I'm thinking about upsets. I'm an Alabama fan.

Would anyone give the best triathlete in the world a ghost of a chance in a swimming race with Michael Phelps?

This is the same thing.

I may go to a bar/restaurant to watch. But they'll pay through the nose too and might not get it. I won't pay the home fee. I feel I got burned several times in the 80's for $50 a fight and Tyson would knock 'em out in 50 seconds. Buck a second!

It would be much more entertaining if they would give them each a baseball bat with spikes through it and a garbage can lid for a shield, Snake Plissken style!

I agree with this pretty much spot on. I do give McGregor a punchers chance, bc the man does pack some power. However that is also with 4 oz gloves. Mayweather fights to win, and his style of winning is very technical. I mean you have a fight that basically comes down to this.

One of if not the best technical boxer of all time fighting a guy who has never boxed professionally or amateur in his life. If McGregor has any chance, IMO he will have to do it in the first 4 rounds. I don't think he has the stamina to go all 12.

Basically I see McGregor maybe tagging Mayweather once, but then punching himself out trying to finish him by throwing wildly

Mcgregor has actually done some boxing before MMA, I just can't find any stats or solid info on it. He's no stranger to the sport, which leads me to believe if he had been any good he might have stuck with it rather than MMA, but that's pure conjecture.
