Robert Byrd: Profile of 74-year-old Mayweather vs McGregor fight referee

March 15, 2017 - White, also appearing on Conan and therefore nearly bringing the saga full circle, says: "I do think it's going to happen".

There was a moment in Los Angeles during the first stare-down of Conor McGregor's world tour with Floyd Mayweather that captured neatly the gory, verbal slashfest that stretched across the following week.

Conor McGregor's super-bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr is just five days away and the ultra-confident Irishman is predicting a resounding victory.

If McGregor does the unthinkable and becomes to first man to defeat Floyd Mayweather, would his more lucrative options remain in boxing? The Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) star only recently acquired a boxing licence in California, but his prowess inside the Octagon is unlikely to help him when it comes to battling inside the ring. I will be watching ... as will you. That led Mayweather's promoter, Leonard Ellerbe, to scold writers at his media day for hurting boxing by being too negative about the fight.

"There's never been a boxer who could beat a good wrestler", Luttrell reportedly said.

The hype around this fight has been building up well before the two actually put ink to paper and formally committed to this fight.

"I hate to tell everyone this, but boxing is something that every mixed martial artist is very familiar with".

"It's just not going to happen".

While mixed fighting dates back to the ancient Olympics, there's a direct line to be drawn from the widely panned Ali-Inoki match to Saturday's Mayweather-McGregor event. The response may make you uncomfortable, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

"I don't think it is a fight that I am going to jump on a plane and go to see unless they pay me to commentate on it", he said. "While Mayweather is still the favourite, bettors have overwhelmingly backed the MgGregor to win with odds having been cut in half", said Alexander Kostin from the website Bet-bonuscode.co.uk. If Mayweather, who has dedicated the fight "to all black people", loses his customary cool and tries to walk into the wheelhouse of his opponent, he could get caught with an unexpected big shot and blow the fight.

But that may say more about America's appetite for reality TV and spectacle than it does about the two sports themselves. And [McGregor] could stop him.
