Showtime is offering refunds to those who experienced issues ordering the pay-per-view for Saturday's fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather that delayed the fight several minutes. Many people think that Mayweather's style can be boring to watch and that he should attack other fighters more rather than just avoiding them.

When the fight was over, McGregor embraced Mayweather and the fighters shared a few words after a historic event that may end up as the most lucrative bout in combat sports history. "I must come straight ahead and give the fans a show, and I think that's what I gave them". "I still have a hell of an IQ and I'm still a thinker". As I said, he wasn't embarrassed, but by the middle of the fight it was clear he was years of training away from being a viable boxer.

"You won't see me in the ring anymore", Mayweather said. He said after the fight that they should have let him finish the round.

Just like the ceaselessly obnoxious Trump, McGregor has our young people thinking that you have to be a big, loud, arrogant, shouty, condescending, obnoxious, racist, insulting, boastful and brash man to make it in this world.

The match was a highly anticipated premier event, with both boxing (Mayweather) and UFC (McGregor) fans drawn to it. And unfortunately for those accustomed to the oft-followed protocols of the fight game, it's hard to imagine that McGregor will be accepting anything but the most lucrative option available from here on out.

The energy drained from McGregor's body as the rounds wore on, but Malignaggi believes the southpaw lied about wanting to be given the chance to go the full 12 rounds. McGregor got off to a good start, Mayweather figured him out after a few rounds, and after that the only question was whether Mayweather would stop a fighter legitimately for the first time in almost a decade.

The two then scuffled during fight week and rumours have emerged the two could be set to meet in a boxing ring.

"You can train as long as you want to in boxing you know coming from MMA but once you get in the actual fight instinct takes over and training kinda plays the background", said Dez Hill. I guaranteed to everybody that this wouldn't go the distance.
