You're still comparing shallower talent pool of MMA to deeper talent pool of Boxing.

Because I don't think most people reading / talking about this fight want to go all in on race relations you know? They just want to talk about the craziness of the fight and who they think will win.
Either way, respect.
Yeah I am, but I also consider everything in the equation such as race which I know Floyd completely understands and uses it to his advantage in antagonizing viewers to want to see him get knocked out or beat.
With all due respect, If you don't like the uncomfortable statements created by the factual conditions, history, and legacy of this country that have also impacted sports, than either engage me or ignore me. I'm honestly trying to say that in the nicest way possible, because I respect you Obliterator and enjoy your comments on Boxing.
Honestly I won't be surprised if Mayweather brings it up, in order to rifle people's feathers so they can buy the fight and believe Connor has a chance.
To add to the craziness of the fight, the one thing that does need to mention is Mayweather is 40 years old, and that's OLD in boxing years for a welterweight.
