The whole thing just seems like an absurd circus act to make two rich men even richer to me, but we'll see. There are plenty of little tricks to giving Mayweather trouble, but putting them all together, holding it all together mentally, and doing it for 12 rounds is the hard part. As Floyd gets older you also have to wonder if his quickness, his ability to evade punches, and his ability to take them will lessen, and will not having fought in two years be an easy hole to climb out of at his age?
Still, the idea that a guy who for all of his striking ability, countering ability, and (maybe most key of all) reach advantage is going to beat a guy who has never been beat in his first professional boxing match? Doesn't sound plausible to me. Can Conor last 12 rounds? Can Conor keep his cool/gameplan together if Floyd can still dodge, and counter like he always has? The two guys are not dissimilar in style, which could be very interesting/boring, but the idea that this will go any way other than the way the 49 previous Mayweather fights have seems unlikely. Everyone will be hyped as hell, everyone will feel cheated the morning after, and both guys will be laughing all the way to the bank.

I'm very excited at the prospect of them fighting even though I'm sure it'll amount to Mayweather dancing around the ring, avoiding McGregor, getting a few points in, and getting a decision win. So, yeah, it'll more than likely be a super boring fight.
In ancient times, only Fen'Harel(The Dread Wolf) could walk without fear among both our gods and the Forgotten Ones, for although he is kin to the gods of the People, the Forgotten Ones knew of his cunning ways and saw him as one of their own. And that is how Fen'Harel tricked them.
