Does he even know how to box? Yes, they do box in MMA but the rules are different there. I think anyone from the top 10 welterweights or super welterweights can easily dispatch him. Even our local welters will make him look stupid.

Being MMA leading champion is not a joke specially to the fact that majority of his win were done by excellent striking with perfect timing and by using feints.
It seems maliggnagi is now in a hard time dealing with Conor in sparring.
McGregor is expert of apprehending the weak points of opponents long before he challenged Floyd.
It will be the greatest upset in the chronicle of boxing. The main reason why Conor inveigled Floyd.

MMA Fighters have limited boxing skills and training. They hardly use their jabs as potent weapon for their follow-up combinations. Their mindset is always focus on counter kicks, takedowns and clinches to throw their elbows. Entirely different discipline. Suddenly Connor is thrust into pure boxing drills and sparring with so little or no professional experience at all. What should we expect??

Floyd will toy around him and Connor will be wildly swinging at him hitting nothing but air. Don't be surprised to see him stepping on his own foot due to lack of balance and coordination. It will be so bad that his own misses almost trip him over to the canvas.

Maidana, Broner and even Algieri would beat the crap out of him.

This fight should have been 6 rounds boxing and 6 rounds MMA.

Connor hired a boxing ref, Joe Cortez to teach him boxing rules. Just goes to show how much he has to learn.

do it at your own risk though.

MMA fighters are mostly flatfooted because they're also looking to attack with kicks. They can't kick that fast while bouncing on their toes. This is the part where i think Connor is terrible, his footwork isn't flexible enough to adapt to lateral movements by Floyd. How can he cut the ring when cannot keep up with Floyd circling around him? Puncher's chance? No way. Those arms will be dead weary after 6 rounds. Then, he'll be at Floyd's mercy.
