Re: Manny Pacquiao v Conor McGregor
Isn't it weird how some people think cambat skills are transferable across different freighting disciplines.
i know a guy who was a genuine monster at Judo, then switched to Taekwondo .... and he was shit. Got battered every time.
I don't know a lot about MMA, but as a professional world champion I'm assuming he is pretty competent.
As a boxer, though, he was terrible. He made mistakes a half decent amateur would not have made.
He whaled away against Mayweather with no game plan or skill until he gassed out. Mayweather - a pure defensive counterpuncher - just walked through him and beat him into submission.
Pacquiaio, even at 40, is stylistically different. A hyper aggressive and venomous puncher with blinding hand and foot speed.
I hope this is all just talk, and McGregor could get seriously hurt in there. Why would our sport sanction an absolute beginner to get on with an elite boxer?
If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?
