Conor can fight with full gas tank for 12 rounds easy.

He'll be more awkward than Maidana hitting Floyd with all kinds of weird punches thrown from every angle.

In a clinch Conor will manhandle and move Floyd at will.

Floyd will run like normal but he will be cut off and be forced into a corner.

The crowd will be on Conors side.

Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

I don't understand that sort of logic. The thought that a Boxer might struggle against an opponent because they are a fighter, not a Boxer?

To imply this implies Boxers have been missing a trick since the dawn of Boxing

My logic has the belief that those that become Cage-fighters are the types that are no good at Boxing.
McGregor is in for a shock. His only hope is if he lands a lucky left-hander.

^I think it's because some of the most awkward boxing styles gave Mayweather his toughest fights like Maidaina and Augustus(who Floyd had mentioned was tough because of his awkward style). The only chance Conor has is to make it awkward and try to bully Floyd with his size and hope to somehow catch him with something. That's really what Canelo and Pac should've done instead of trying to outbox arguably the greatest defensive boxer of all time.

McGregor is going to give Floyd a beating lol boxing fans already prepping themselves for that "lucky" punch.

Conor is a different animal. Even in the mma world thats why he's the only one simultaneously holding two championship titles.
