The Circus is coming
Step right up, step right up. This way to the fight that will have fight fans be they boxing or MMA alike talking to until the show is over. Come one, come all, and see a fight we are all bizarrely intrigued by. Make no mistake this fight will cost you a pretty penny.
That’s right lady, thank you sir, you’re most welcome, you two fine folk follow me. Its being strongly suggested that boxing great Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather will enter the octagon.
No, you didn’t misread that. Yes, you are most certainly in the year 2018. Whenever ‘The Best Ever’ does things, he certainly doesn’t do them by half. There have been several videos plastering social media of Floyd stepping into the octagon. Coupled with the fact that Mayweather and McGregor have been verbally sparring over social media for weeks leads us to believe that we will see the two fight again. Only this time in a cage, a cage in which the Irishman calls home.
Given the quality of boxing that was laid out for all to see last year, this fight got everybody talking more than any other, certainly more than I can remember since Floyd’s fight with Manny Pacquaio. The fight itself went exactly as I expected with Floyd putting on a show and finishing the fight when he wanted to. Connor McGregor had no business being in a boxing ring.
The same can certainly be said for Floyd stepping into the octagon. The armies of MMA fans claiming that Floyd would be fodder for McGregor and on the face of it you would have to agree. But the cries of Floyd not being man enough to allows McGregor a match in his chosen discipline now seem unjust.
Floyd is not only a premier boxer, but he is also a shrewd businessman, and the rumours circulating the boxing dirt sheets are that a return match could be worth as much as £360 million.
But as much as this may have shocked you or I, it seems that three men knew this may well have been the plan all along. Dana White has said recently:
“You know, Floyd said leading up to the fight with Conor that he would do both. So, um, we’ll see what happens. Obviously the only way making that fight again makes any sense is if he comes into the octagon.
“We went over and boxed him, you know, the UFC and Conor McGregor, and now it’s time for him to reciprocate and come fight in the octagon.”
Hold on to your hats folks. Round 2 is about to begin.
