What Is This Amateur Hour?!?!

sport-preview-conor-mcgregor-v-floyd-mayweather-640x427

What a joke!! Rather than being some super-hyped, super-fight, this should be the laughing stock of sports. Floyd Mayweather Jr., one of boxing’s most accomplished fighters ever, is coming out of retirement to fight Conor McGregor, the UFC’s ‘flavor of the month’. Well, I guess it’s true what they say..every man has his price. Granted, in this case, the price is really freakin’ high. Mayweather is projected to make approximately $100 million for 36-minutes of “work”. For a second I almost forgot Mayweather’s nickname is “Money”. McGregor is projected to make slightly less, however, I’m sure he’ll rest his oversized, Irish head just fine on that fancy pillow when he brings home approximately $75 million.

This may be the most predictable fight in boxing history, but before I tell you what’s going to happen..I bring you the details:

When: Saturday, August 26th, 2017

Where: T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

Weight Class: Light Middleweight (154 pounds)

Rules: 12-Round Boxing Match (duh!)

For those who thought this could potentially be a Mixed Martial Arts fight, allow me to laugh in your face, HAHAHAHA. Sorry about that. If you thought Floyd Mayweather Jr. was going to come out of retirement to get his face kicked in, you were sorely mistaken. UFC and Boxing, despite their similarities, are 2 completely different sports. And that is the part people DO NOT understand. Conor McGregor can talk all the trash he wants, but the fact is, he has ZERO chance in this fight. ZERO. As in Nada. Zilch. Diddly-Squat. But Dave, what if he catches him with a……Nope, not gonna happen. Hell, McGregor isn’t even regarded as the best boxer in the UFC (Stipe Miocic probably holds that honor).

While this may become the greatest money making spectacle boxing has ever seen, in reality, it’s an amateur-hour special. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is 49-0 as a professional boxer. McGregor is 0-0. The fact that the Nevada State Athletic Commission is actually sanctioning this fight is ridiculous, but hey, money makes the world go ’round.

Tale of the Tape

Mayweather                                                                                         McGregor

Age: 40                                                                                                    Age: 28

Height: 5’8″                                                                                           Height: 5’9″

Reach: 72″                                                                                             Reach: 74″

Boxing Record: 49-0                                                                       UFC Record: 21-3

Now, I will give you a step-by-step breakdown of the fight. You can print this out, carry it around for nearly 2.5 months, and follow it during the fight as if it were a textbook. This fight will go like Mayweather’s last fight (which was almost 2 years ago already – 09.12.15), and the fight before that, and the fight before that. Mayweather will very occasionally hit McGregor with precise jabs, and then dance around McGregor for the majority of the 36-minute bout. If Mayweather finds himself REMOTELY close to danger, he will give McGregor a nice little hug until the referee separates the love birds. McGregor’s frustration will become glaringly visible. The only wild scenario I can picture, and this would be AWESOME, is if McGregor loses his cool in like the 6th round and just roundhouse kicks Mayweather in the face. He’d be disqualified of course, and Mayweather would most likely be unconscious, but that would be Must-See TV!!

Expect the Pay Per View cost to be the same as Mayweather vs. Pacquiao ($100), and expect the fight to start past your bed-time (probably 10:30/11:00 P.M. EST). Also expect, and heed my warning, to be really disappointed you spent $100 bucks on this dumpster fire. Mayweather has only knocked out 1 person in the last 19 years, and McGregor is still trying to figure out how to get his boxing gloves on (they’ll fight with 10-ounce gloves).

Now, as we speak, you can bet on the fight. The opening line on the fight is Mayweather (-800) and McGregor (+500). These odds are WAYYYYYYYYY too low. If I was a betting man, I’d be betting my life savings on Mayweather in a Unanimous Decision (which would bring him to a perfect 50-0). But Dave, I can get 5 to 1 odds on McGregor to pull off the upset. Yeah, and I can use $100 bills as toilet paper, but I don’t….

If someone else is buying, I’m watching, otherwise I’ll wait for ESPN’s highlights the following morning.

What do you think the result of this fight will be?? Are you crazy enough to think McGregor can win?? If so, PLEASE tell me in the comment section below.

One Liner Friday’s

big mo

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of One Liner Friday’s. After a 3 week break, I’m back!! Here you can find the past week in sports wrapped up in One Line and One Line only. Enjoy!!

All I have to say about the Jacksonville Jaguars idea to give any fans who purchase tickets to their game this weekend 2 free beers is: MMMMMMMMMMM BEER.

And, where can I buy some Jag’s tickets?

I wish everyone would understand that this 10 year/$305 million number Robinson Cano is “asking” for is just a bunch of white smoke.

No one is going to give him more than 7 years/$196 million (which is still absurd but it’s quite a bit less then $305), I mean the guy literally walks to 1st base on groundballs.

Hey Jay-Z, I know you like money because it ain’t a thang but stop trying to steamroll The Yankees and let’s get real.

Speaking of The Yankees, let’s get serious.

Thursday night marked the last time the best closer of all-time, Mariano Rivera, would ever step foot on the mound in Yankees Stadium.

His career is unparalleled and is one of the finest human beings to ever play the game of baseball.

Good luck filling those shoes David Robertson.

Andy Pettite is also hangin ’em up after this season, making his final start this weekend in Houston.

He had a very solid career and will be missed in the Yankees organization as well.

Let me preface the next few statements by saying I Love The New York Jets.

But, they are NOT as good as everyone thinks.

I repeat, they are not very good.

The Defense is very good, but this is still a 6 or 7 win team at best, and for people to think they are going to make the playoffs all of a sudden because they are 2-1 is RIDICULOUS!!

Oh they beat The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and The Buffalo Bills, both at home, yeah you’re right they’re great what was I thinking?!?!

Is it awkward for The Sacramento Kings organization to have Shaquille O’ Neal be part owner now considering he called them The Sacramento Queens back in the day??

I hate Floyd Mayweather Jr. with a passion!!

But, he is the best in the world right now, so you gotta give him credit where it’s due.

Bye Bye Bud Selig, you will not be missed.

I think he wanted to retire before Major League Baseball’s squeaky clean name got tied to Steroids, haha.

RG3 says he doesn’t know how to slide, and to that I say: What are you retarded?

Way to grow some cojones Carlos Gomez!!

I mean Brian McCann would have kicked your ass, but at least you didn’t back down or hide behind an umpire in a scrum like Chris Johnson.

Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant don’t have real beef with each other, rather they are in cahoots in some major marketing scheme….just wait and see.

So The New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets are going to split the 2015 All-Star Game Festivities right down the middle???

Yeah, nothing says heated rivalry like a little sharing.

Have you ever seen someone take a bigger beating in a victory before in your life?

Don’t know what I’m talking about just see exhibit A: UFC Champion Jon Jones’ face after defeating Alexander Gustafsson.

jon jones

Someone let The New York Football Giants know what time their game is this week because I don’t think they knew last week; that’s why they didn’t show up!

Ouch!

Have you ever watched (or not watched) a more pathetic display of football in your life?

Maybe they’ll put forth a better effort in Kansas City this week….eh probably not.

Yeah, we believe you Colin Kaepernick when you say you don’t care what anybody has to say about you.

So is that why you SAVED AND FAVORTIED all of your hate tweets online last week?

Idiot.

Well, this has been another edition of One Liner Friday’s. I hope you enjoyed them!! If you have your own One Liner’s you want to leave me, please write them in the comment section below. Thanks.

One Liner Friday’s

Hello and welcome to another edition of One Liner Friday’s. Here you can find the past week in sports wrapped up in one line and one line only. Enjoy!!

Peyton Manning is very very very very very good at football.

Hey Flacco, I hope you had your notepad and pencil out while Mr. Manning was taking you to school (nice contract Ravens).

Seriously though, everyone should stop doubting Manning and his arm strength and his age and should just realize that he is one of the best to ever do it (NO, NOT 6, 7, 7 IS THE NUMBER!).

Something About Mary?

Oh Yankees, every time I think you’re going to return to form and storm your way into the playoffs, you go and do something like that.

In case you missed it, Big Mo blew a save (obviously against the Red Sox) and then who else but Joba the hut would go on to lose the game.

I still think the Yankees land the final Wild Card spot in the playoffs this year, watch.

I’ve said it about 10 times now, and I will say it again, Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be handed his first ever loss by Canelo Alvarez on Saturday September 14th.

I am looking forward to 50 Cent and Justin Bieber performing for Mayweather as he walks to the ring though (how stupid is that).

Nobody thinks that Cary Williams wanted to fight Riley Cooper because he is a blatant racist do they??

Because that would be absurd!

Hey, uh, Geno Smith, we passed on you just like everyone else in the 1st round of the draft, and we are actually going to play Mark ‘the worst quarterback in the history of the world’ Sanchez over you, but now that ummm, oh man this is awkward, now that he happens to be hurt THIS IS YOUR OFFENSE AND IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN!!

Yeah, I think he believes you and he’s buying the vote of confidence.

And if he’s not I certainly am.

It has been one of the most spectacular and impressive careers in the history of sports, but Roger Federer is officially on the Decline.

2013 became the first year he hasn’t reached a single Grand Slam Final since 2002 (back before he was the R-FED).

His career is not over, and I think he will make a comeback and have a nice showing in 2014 before he rides off into the sunset, but this is the first of many tributes to one of the finest athletes of all time.

Hey, uh, Andy Murray, I know you’re really busy being the ugliest man in the world, but a player of your stature should never lose in straight sets in the quarterfinals.

You know, instead of suspending Ryan Braun for the rest of the season, they should have just suspended him for 4.5 innings.

No?

Oh, that only works for privileged stuck up little children in College Football, my bad.

Who gives out a suspension of half of a game?!?!?

That’s like taking a convicted felon and saying, you know what we’re going to do, forget the whole prison thing, we are just going to give you about 25 minutes in the pink timeout chair in the corner (obviously the timeout chair is pink).

Thanks for reading everyone, and if you have your own one liner’s that you want to post, please feel free to do so in the comment section below. Enjoy your weekend everyone!!

This is my 2nd post of the day, so make sure you scroll down to read about Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Enjoy!

I just came up with the best headline ever: Arvind Mahankali channels Inner Jew to win 2013 Spelling Bee.

Lebron James is really good at basketball.

The New York Mets have won the World Series!

No, no they didn’t.

They did win 4 games in a row for the first time since World War II though, so that’s certainly something to celebrate.

Really Rutgers, REALLY?

You are more inept than George W Bush trying to spell his own name.

Seriously, how do you hire Julie Hermann?

She cursed your president out and beat up a small child during her interview, but apparently that wasn’t enough to stop you from hiring her.

Astonishing!

Who is watching the 14 straight hours of Women’s College Softball coverage on EVERY ESPN CHANNEL?!?!

Seriously?

So apparently Broadway Joe put the bottle down long enough to talk about the Jets.

Too bad the Jets don’t want to hear him speak.

I said it last week, but let me repeat myself: Floyd Mayweather Jr. will suffer his first professional loss of his career in September against Canelo Alvarez.

Too big, too strong, too young.

Yes, the NHL Playoffs are still going on.

I know, I almost forgot too.

Where oh where has Rory Mcilroy gone?

Chris Anderson (aka Birdman, aka turtleneck tattoo, aka you look like a moron) should have been ejected from Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

It’s a good thing referees have integrity and don’t favor the home team though.

Gordon Gee, oh Gordon Gee, what is wrong with you?

Since when is it okay to run your mouth and say whatever you want no matter how offensive to large groups of people?

Ohhhh, it’s all about the all mighty dollar, how silly of me to think otherwise.
