September 20, 2017
In case you live under a rock and somehow missed all the hoopla, the money fight has finally come and gone… Wait scratch that, there’s no way anyone in this galaxy didn’t see, hear or have something to say about it, the hype was real folks! Fight fans across the world waited in anticipation as both fighters upped their antics pre-fight, hyping up their fans and causing quite the stir.
Now, members of the bellyache corner might be lacking in the boxing/fight sports knowledge department, but we pride ourselves on our ability to find and share the brighter side of most topics – and more importantly being very up to date with the memes taking over the twitterverse.
So not wanting to be left out, (FOMO is real too) but also sticking to what we know, we’re going to do our very own little McGregor vs Mayweather, taking you step by step through the pre and post madness.
Without further ado, we present the foul mouth confident Irishman – Mr. Notorious, and his opponent the understated pretty boy of boxing with an undefeated record – Mr. Money.
The Press Tour:
They didn’t just have a press conference, nope! These two had to take it on the road and have a whole press tour making stops in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto and London. The jabs they were exchanging though left most speechless and excited the fans to a point of almost starting cults. We saw Mayweather make it rain and McGregor literally wear his insults. These are our picks of the top moments pre-fight:
End of the day, these two made more money from this one fight than most will see in a lifetime and left fans with mixed reactions. For those who placed bets and lost, they deserve a whole page just to themselves. This twitter user said it best:
Special mention has to go out to all those that jumped on the 49 and 1 bandwagon. Our question is, what are you going to do with all that merchandise now? *awkward*
Despite the outcome, we can all agree that both guys deserve a round of applause for conning us all into thinking they actually hate each other, when deep down they actually have mutual respect for one another.
But all jokes aside, both these guys did a amazing job. Props to Conor McGregor just for stepping into the ring and hanging with one of the best for so many rounds, and Floyd Mayweather for getting the job done, 50-0 is something to brag about.
