This would only make sense if it were a MMA fight, since MMA is where all combat styles meet. This is the equivalent of asking a wrestler to fight in a full-contact taekwondo match or a muay thai fighter to fight in a judo match.

Thus, whoever falls for it done in a boxing ring is a dimwit that can easily be conned.

1) This fight wasn't a boxing match nor a wrestling match and was overhall a snoozfest without any real interest and both fighters could use their own style.

Ali didn't ask that Japanese guy to fight a boxing match.

But Ali wasn't a cherry picker.

2) MMA is Mixed Martial Arts, the art of this sport is making fight fighters from Wrestling, Muay Thai, Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fight each others, you even have that Lyoto Machida guy who is from Karate.

An yet this fight was a joke since Toney had no experience in MMA (striking, grappling).

Floyd on the other hand is trying to get a guy from MMA in his own sport.
Boxing is a sport with federation and rankings, he will fight a guy who is 0-0.

Yes, that's what I call a joke of a fight.

I'm not surprised to see you defend a fight like this one.

I wish you could show for once a bit of SELF ESTEEM and stop living hanging on another man nutsack and trough another man accomplishments.

Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor - the Boxing News view
Matt Christie

ELVIS PRESLEY’S long and winding residency in Las Vegas concluded with him dying on the toilet floor, his swollen body bathing in his own vomit. By the end of his career he was unrecognisable to the superstar that came before, a parody of himself, almost, regurgitating his old classics in a manner that would likely have repulsed the younger, fitter, King.

But in Sin City, anything goes. A walk down the Strip, through the hotels, casinos and theatres, proves that. Stars of yesterday are repackaged as can’t miss attractions of today, their appeal frozen in a curious, gaudy time warp. Musicians, magicians, comedians – and Floyd Mayweather – are drawn into the mayhem only by the incredible sums of money being thrown at them.

Mayweather’s act is different to anything else on display – he’s a prizefighter after all – yet he too has been given license to do as he pleases for a long time. The last five years of his career were stacked in his favour, and in fairness produced masterclass after masterclass, but like the other stars of Vegas, once you had witnessed one of his performances, you had witnessed them all. While parading as the best fighter in boxing (which he undeniably was), Floyd became ingrained in the showbiz of his town.

And, it seems, the show will go on. Next up to the circus could be UFC megastar Conor McGregor, in what would be a mismatch of epic proportions. The reason it appeals to the fighters requires no explanation, and judging by the sums of money being mentioned (upwards of $100m for Floyd), neither should be criticised too heavily for instigating this event.

In fact, as a Vegas exhibition, I have no problem with Mayweather and McGregor sharing a stage. Let’s face it,
the build-up would entertain the masses, and there would be soundbites and laughter aplenty as the two went head-to-head. But we’re told this is to be a sanctioned boxing match. One that will go down in the record books as Floyd’s 50th professional fight – and McGregor’s first. Even by Vegas standards, it’s grotesque. Anyone who thinks McGregor has even the faintest hope of winning is not only barking up the wrong tree, they’re in the wrong field. While the charismatic Irishman has proven his worth in the Octagon, boxing and mixed martial arts are two different disciplines. Those who say, ‘You wouldn’t pick the best squash player in the world to beat the best tennis player in a game of tennis’, are exactly on point, but we should remember this isn’t just about who wins, this is boxing, and safety must be paramount. It’s a dangerous game. It’s the hardest game.

Sadly, the uneducated will likely lap it up. And as was the case after several Mayweather outings, most memorably vs Manny Pacquiao, fans will scream robbery after paying handsomely to watch a one-sided contest. This will be one-sided to the extreme. It’s true that the exposure will be immnese, but the volume of the disgruntled voices will do the sport no favours.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission should not sanction this fight. McGregor – who last boxed competitively at Novice level as a teenager – might well be fit and able to fight, but a journeyman would have more chance of winning, and can you imagine the uproar if William Warburton was matched with Mayweather? Perhaps it’s a ludicrous comparison, but just because McGregor is more famous doesn’t make it a fairer fight, and just because someone can box at a certain level does not mean they should be unleashed at the absolute highest.

Not only that, there is the small matter of history. Mayweather’s record currently stands at 49-0, a golden and admirable tally that underlines his greatness. It’s a record he famously shares with Rocky Marciano. To beat that record by thrashing a novice like McGregor would be a disgrace. To accept this as a viable fight is an insult to boxing, and to his legacy.

Unless Mayweather is willing to come back and fight the best challengers available, he should be judged as nothing more than a Vegas sideshow, just like Presley

So embarrassing. Floyd lost so much credibility already with his IV injections, with the domestic violence, beating up his women and now he is so desperate for attention he tries to forcefeed some retarded fans this ****.

The funniest thing though, nobody even gives a damn and Floyd keeps trying and trying to promote this ****fest.
