10 Reasons You’re A Fool If You Order Mayweather-McGregor

Clearly the public has forgotten about the time Floyd Mayweather “boxed” Manny Pacquiao. The combined 300 pounds of man danced around a ring for two hours, lightly jabbed, barely broke a sweat, collected hundreds of millions of dollars, and left the ring virtually bruise-less. Here’s a picture of Floyd and Manny after their bout:


Does that look like two dudes who just got done trying to beat the s*** out of each other? No…that looks like two dudes who just stole your money. Are you really going to make the same mistake twice with this Mayweather-McGregor debacle? Here are the ten reasons you’d be foolish to spend your hard-earned dough on this idiotic publicity stunt:




10. They Don’t Play The Same Sport

Imbeciles like Skip Bayless are trying to hype this fight up by claiming McGregor’s an “underrated boxer,” totally neglecting to point out that Floyd Mayweather isn’t just a good boxer, he’s the most skilled boxer ever to walk the planet. He’s boring as hell to watch (we’ll get to that), but claiming McGregor can compete with the GOAT after ~six months of training is criminally ridiculous…

9. Mayweather Made $220-250 million Off The Pacquiao Fight

A quarter of a billion dollars for two hours of nothing. They’re hyping this up as a once-in-a-lifetime show, a can’t-miss spectacle, but it’s really going to be a complete waste of your time…




8. The Line Is -1100 (Mayweather)

Do you trust Vegas oddsmakers? We think the line should be closer to -2000 (McGregor is currently +700), but what do we know…

7. You Can Almost Buy An Amazon Echo For The Money You’d Be Spending

Do we get paid for the affiliate sale here if you buy an Echo? Yeah, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a better investment than purchasing this fight…




6. Mayweather’s Not Fun To Watch

Pretty exciting stuff there, Floyd. One soft-ass punch every five seconds isn’t why we watch boxing…

5. The Canelo-GGG Fight

Less than a month after Mayweather and McGregor steal hundreds of millions of dollars from dimwitted Americans, GGG and Canelo will provide boxing fans with an actual show. Save your money, order this fight in November instead…




4. The Ward-Kovalev Rematch

The Ward-Kovalev rematch takes place two days before Mayweather-McGregor and will be a way better fight. You can also just order a ton of porn and call it even…




3. The Only People Mayweather Actually Hits Are Women

If you’re unaware that Mayweather’s wild spending habits and “money” persona are a facade to cover up his domestic violence allegations, well, now you’re aware. Here’s an article that summarizes what a terrible person Mayweather is if you’re so inclined…




2. It’s Rigged

12-round unanimous decision. Mayweather toys with him the entire fight. McGregor’s exhausted by the second round but doesn’t give up. They hug after and smile at how much money they made. The end.

1. Mayweather-Pacquiao Was Bad For Boxing, But Mayweather-McGregor Is Worse

The Ward-Kovalev fight was great (even though Kovalev should have won), GGG v. Canelo has the potential to be a classic, and Anthony Joshua’s knockout of Wladimir Klitschko was the best heavyweight fight in years. But everyone’s talking about Mayweather-McGregor. Go figure. This fight will be more boring than Floyd’s passive slap-boxing match against Pacquiao, and the end product will do more damage to the already-fragile state of professional fisticuffs…
