Floyd Mayweather may or may not be fighting Conor McGregor, but one thing’s for sure. People are already taking sides in what could be the a monumental crossover fight between MMA and boxing.
Sylvester Stallone, who’s known for his role as Rocky Balboa among other unforgettable roles, is placing his bet on Floyd Mayweather.
Asked by TMZ who Sly would take in the match, Floyd Mayweather or Conor McGregor, he said “In boxing, you gotta go with the boxer.”
Though Stallone did acknowledge that “anything is possible” especially since Conor McGregor is bigger than McGregor.
He labelled the fight “high drama” and if the fight ever comes to reality, he’d definite pay to watch it.
Maybe instead of watching the two fight on pay-per-view, Sylvester Stallone can pay the two prizefighters to do a cameo in his latest installment of The Expendables.
MMA fighter Ronda Rousey recreated her stunts in The Expendables 3. If Rousey can do it, maybe the two men can also bring their fight to the big screen instead.
Meanwhile, UFC President Dana White has repeatedly stated that McGregor ‘s fight with Mayweather is unlikely to happen.
In line with Dana’s vehement opposition, it would be wise for McGregor to hear that a seasoned boxing trainer and analyst in the name of Teddy Atlas has shut down his possible success against Floyd Mayweather.
Teddy Atlas revealed to ESPN that Conor McGregor would have no chance in a traditional boxing match. To raise McGregor’s odds of winning, the fight must allow MMA rules.
Atlas then went on to say that McGregor would need at least 5 years, generously speaking, to be able to give a good fight against the likes of Floyd Mayweather.
Asked about McGregor’s chances, Atlas said “Once again, I believe I have already answered this — but again, to be more definitive: none. If I were a Vegas oddsmaker, I would not list a betting line on this.”
If Sylvester Stallone and Teddy Atlas’ words are to be believed, then Conor McGregor would be wise to stay in his MMA cage and let the undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather enjoy the fruits of his boxing career.
