Tyson Fury, Connor, Conor Mcgregor discussed on NBC Sports
Connor specialty is striking though wrestler. How's he going to box with Lloyd Mayweather? This is a mismatch me. I don't see how that would be. I mean, he's really going to have to carry Khabib because I don't think could be is is I mean, he's not a strike striker. Yeah. But you know, the the interesting thing about that fight with Conor McGregor. And and could be is. I don't understand after that first round after he got him down. I don't understand why Connors corner did not say, hey, you stay in the center of the octagon stay in the center of the octagon circle around don't get anywhere near that fence because his takedown defense in the center of the octagon when could shoot in he could because he can sprawling get his hits back, and and he can he can prevent the takedown. It's wind could get you up against the against the fence with the chain link and everything, and you you can't get your hips back because you can't get your feet, right? And and that's where that's his specialty in. I don't understand the after after that first round. They didn't say, hey, you stay in the center that octagon you circle. Octagon you go sideways. You don't do not do not press him or or or get pressed up against the cage. It looked like Carter was a little off with the timing that whole fight. You know, he hit him some good shots. But he never got a flush right on the job. Like he did with the Jose Aldo. You know, and you know, he's been partying and selling his whiskey his suits. And said you always wanna go with a guy who's been fighting over a guy who hasn't been fighting. You check for eighty million dollars who hasn't been fighting against the hungry guy. Like, oh Bieb who's not rich yet? He's he's he's gonna crush him. Yeah. And now, why wouldn't they give Connor a tune-up play? Why would they don't think he wanted what risk it, I guess? But why wouldn't they have him? Fight Pederson then and then fight for and then and then and then have them have the winner of those fight each other in a rematch. If he if he trains hard, maybe has an interim fight gets the timing back. Could he win a rematch against a, you know, you never know anything can happen in the sport? And he he really improved himself when he when he went against d as the second time. And so I don't know. I think I think the one thing he would have to do is is I I would hope that he would not he would stay away from that fence like say we stay away from their way from the cage. He's he's got. He's got to stay in the center and just try to try to try to win the boxing match. And when you talk about guy wanna ask you about this will come up, your UB in former heavyweight fighter Tyson fury and Deontay wilder. They're going to be plenty. At Staples Center in December for the heavyweight championship. And it's called the lineal champion against the current heavyweight champion. When fury fought Ladimir Klitschko. What was it three years ago in two thousand fifteen hands at his sides muggings, stick and his out slapping running? I could see maybe. Fury doing that too wild or maybe ugly out a twelve round decision. But he hasn't been fighting back to get clipped and get knocked down the two guys. He fought were. You know, we're we're just, you know, there was just you know, average guys that were they weren't even the I don't even think they were. Blown-up cruiserweights, they weren't even real true heavyweights. So it's going to be interesting. I I, you know, I'm picking water to knock him out. I think I think he's gonna I think he's gonna he's gonna land some the shots. I think it'd be probably in the mid to late arounds. I think I think I think Tyson will probably frustrate them a little bit at the beginning. But I I'm picking wilder. That's leads gonna get clipped. And I think so then maybe wilder Anthony would see this is why I volunteer now to be Commissioner boxing boxing needs a Commissioner. A tough one man you guys will fight. I would assign you've and you've got thirty days to sign to fight YouTube guys because the best fights in boxing, never happened that Mayweather in pacu. We we waited eight years we have. I'd say you've got thirty days to make this happen. If the site doesn't happen. Both your license suspended not making any money. That'll make a fight happen. Right. What do you think about Floyd in his early forties? And I'm of the opinion here. I think Floyd's very lucky to have come around in the era that he did here Sugar Ray, Leonard Tommy Hearns, Roberto Duran Aaron prior. I think.
